What is a Virtual Finance Director?

A Finance Director (FD) is responsible for the overall financial health of a business. This includes managing the company finances on a day to day basis, financial planning, management of financial risks, record-keeping and financial reporting.

A good quality full time FD can come at a big cost, especially for start-up businesses and SMEs. This is where a ‘virtual’ or part-time FD can be invaluable.

Utilising a Virtual FD, you have access to a top class FD at a fraction of the cost of a full time FD and one that works to your schedule
