This is a huge issue for startups or high-growth SME’s, especially those looking for the next round of funding.

We’re a small and rapidly growing business and in a very short space of time, thrive CFO has become an un-extractable component to what we do.
The Collaborative Exchange
A few things we’re great at
To get the output you want, you have to ensure the input is correct. For a thriving small business, that means having the correct systems and procedures in place.
System Design & Integration
Digital systems allow you to automate and scale at speed. This sits at the heart of everything we do. We help you identify and integrate the appropriate systems to take your business next level.
Analysis & Reporting
For businesses on the verge of a cash crunch, knowing break-even points is crucial. Your sales and production teams must know how much work they have to deliver to keep the bills paid. Every business faces hard times, and if that ever happens to you, your CFO can help you dig deep and control the excess.
Fixed Asset Management
Understanding what you own, where it is and how much it is worth can make a big difference to the bottom line. Lost assets, items not depreciated or spreadsheet errors can cost your business time and money.
Let us review any existing policy and/or procedures, or implement them from scratch where none is found. This is aligned with internal management policy and rolled out to all staff members involved in the process.
Forecasting & Scenarios
We can work with you and your staff to identify and quantify the important factors that will affect your future growth and success. We can use that information to prepare financial projections and accompanying plan narrative that helps you visualize your company’s future.
Human capital is possibly your biggest asset. Effective management enables profitable project delivery. Under-utilisation or idle time erodes profitability. To have dashboard visibility of this is an imperitive management tool.

It is never too early to engage a Virtual CFO due to the value they can add to your business. However, in our experience companies often seek a CFO when they start to experience pain points or stress around the following areas:
- You don’t have the accurate information you need to make sound decisions for your business.
- Managing your finances is eating into the time you should be spending on core business activities.
- Your business is growing and you feel out of your comfort zone or feel like you could benefit from an independent sounding board.
Businesses that don’t currently employ a CFO can benefit hugely from bringing in a Virtual CFO. One of the main reasons that startups fail is because they run out of money. A Virtual CFO will help you understand and manage the lifeblood of your business – cash flow – safeguarding the future.
In addition, you can expect more robust financial reporting and greater visibility across your finances as a whole. This enables you making more informed decisions and primed to exploit the right opportunities. Hiring a Virtual CFO allows you to take your business to the next level, at a fraction of the cost of employing a full-time employee.
It varies from company to company, but at thrive CFO, we work hard to be a member of your team. We prefer a proactive approach and aim to build your capability, from general finance hygiene and governance, to a point where you are comfortable and confident in your numbers.
We agree a range of services with you, which we then provide for a fixed monthly fee. As a growing business we know your needs will change as you scale, so these services may change from month-to-month. What will not change is our accessible service. We provide daily support through phone calls and emails wherever you have a question or concern, as well as joining monthly management meetings with you and/or your team to make sure everyone is on the same financial page.
To ensure your company has the best chance of success, getting the right people, establishing the right processes, and ensuring you have the right systems in place are key. A Virtual CFO will work with you to assess where your company is currently at, and what needs to be in place to support its growth in the short to medium term.
While there are a wide range of services we provide, a thrive CFO will not give specialist advice on topics including tax structuring, debt and capital structuring , or raise funds.
It goes without saying that accounting records form the foundation upon which all advisory services are delivered. You are welcome to head over to our monthly accounting services page and grab a great solution to get your accounting house, cleaned up. Your thrive CFO will work in close contact with the Accounting Team to ensure that the foundation work is done as efficiently and correctly as possible, first time around.
A Virtual CFO will provide you with advice and support on the day-to-day, as well as on key strategic decisions, making us the perfect partner for your accountant. You get best of both worlds as we provide analysis on business results, and forecast future business activity so that they can provide you with more proactive tax planning advice.
