How healthy is your finance department?

Finance Department Reviews

Unfortunately, many companies don't know how to determine if their finance department is running inefficiently. And if they do, they don’t know how to address the situation.

Many look towards their auditors or a recruiter for help. Auditing firms are often restricted in how involved they can be with a client. Head hunters rarely have the knowledge to assess the deficiencies in a finance department. Finance Matters will work with you to ensure your financial needs are taken care of.

Finance Matters will go through a multi-step process to assess the needs of your company to ensure the proper structure and people are in place, and then assist you in structuring the department correctly.  We find a lot of companies are uncertain of the skills they need and the roles an accountant should fill. As a result, we often find:

  • An unnecessarily expensive finance department staffed with full-time or over-qualified employees, or; 
  • A finance department with under-qualified personnel struggling to do the work asked of them resulting in frustration from both the owners and the staff.

Finance Matters will assess your needs and goals to create the ideal mix of staffing levels and qualifications to ensure your finance department runs properly and provides the information you need to effectively manage your business. We assist in the recruiting and training of the proper "full-time" staff, and, if necessary, provide the “part-time” mid-level and senior accounting functions.
