Course Outline

Digitisation and financial analytics in a fast-paced world are transforming the traditional CFO role.  The owners of SMEs now have real time access to financial information in a way that was previously only available to larger firms.  They are looking for professional advice on how to use this information to plan for growth and value within their business. Accountants in public practice are ideally suited to provide this service through technology and a strong focus on communication.

A virtual CFO is a person or an accounting firm that takes on the role of CFO for a client on a contract basis. Thanks to cloud accounting systems, they can work largely remotely to monitor finances and advise on key business decisions. Their investment in the development of digital solutions and data analytics is affordable because it can be spread across many clients.

This package combines 2 courses which focus on the establishment and development of Virtual CFO Services

1. Virtual CFO Toolkit

The “Virtual CFO Toolkit” is a comprehensive eLearning course designed to empower accounting firms in enhancing their Virtual CFO services for their business clients. This course comprises eight modules, each delving into crucial aspects of virtual CFO service provision, from branding and client engagement to leveraging technology and managing financial workflows. Aimed at accounting professionals seeking to expand their service offerings and provide strategic financial guidance to their clients, this course offers practical insights, tools, and strategies to excel in the virtual CFO domain.
