S&T CFO Functionality
A CFO function concentrates on Management Accounts, budgeting and performance monitoring within the business, as well as liaising with external accountants to support the production of statutory accounts.
Quite often, businesses struggle to find the resources and right level of skill to form a fully fledged CFO function at a sustainable cost. These challenges limit performance and growth potential, adding more uncertainty and pressure on management.
We work closely with our affiliates to deliver services which enable growing businesses to benefit from a fully outsourced CFO function.
Wholesale Bookkeeping Services
We understand the need of small bookkeeping practices first hand! Trivial matters can cause disruption, from IT issues to maternity cover, or even the unexpected work inflow from a large project.
Sword & Trowel can undertake ad-hoc or regular support Engagements for practices that are looking to outsource some of their volume-based lower-margin tasks.
Wholesale Accounting Services
Smaller accounting practices, particularly in rural areas enjoy an environment of low competition and long-lasting client relationships. This, however, comes with occasional shortages in talent.
Sword & Trowel and its affiliate practices can undertake wholesale support of Engagements that require specialist skill and experience, which can be in short supply.
