The Brickstone Outsourced CFO service is an advisory offering designed to provide businesses with capital expansion projects with genuine financial leadership, beyond the traditional day-to-day accounting function.
Over many years of offering professional services to our clients with large scale projects, Brickstone has been privy to the issues projects sponsors or business owners deal with on a daily basis. One major area of frustration for our clients is in the area of internal finance and administration. Our clients are skilled and experienced at delivering their particular product or service, however it is the financial systems and processes that are typically lacking.
In our experience, where this area is not appropriately addressed, our clients have experienced the following issues:
- Inability to attract funding (debt and/or equity);
- Inability to adequately manage the owner’s investment in the business;
- Uncertainty in making key decisions;
- Increased risk of business failure; and
- Sleepless nights!
The objective of the Brickstone Outsourced CFO service is to satisfy this need and help redress the above problems.
While working on the details, we keep our eyes trained on the larger picture so we can give project owners the guidance required to make informed business and project decisions on the project. Whether you need a replacement for someone who recently left your project or a permanent support person to be with you until financial closure, we fill the skills gap with the necessary expertise you require, either on-site or remotely from our offices. We are particularly of value to start-ups projects, which often do not have the resources for these functions in-house
