Outsourcing a Chief Financial Officer (CFO)

Outsourced Chief Financial Officer (CFO) services in Dubai and the UAE, also referred to as virtual CFO, are when financial expertise is provided by exceptional finance specialists who provide the services normally offered by highly qualified finance professionals. In a normal setting, the CFO is the one who looks after the financial strategy of the company. They are the key drivers of the financial vision of the company.

Some of the top-line responsibilities of the CFO include, but are not limited to:

  • Accurate books and records of the company
  • Liaison with auditors
  • Tax planning and regulatory compliance
  • Financial and management reporting
  • Effective cash flow management
  • Budgeting
  • Strategic planning
  • Risk management
  • Performance management, including KPIs

While the above are some of the core responsibilities, all financial matters are ultimately under the jurisdiction of the CFO.

Businesses that understand the financial challenges recognise that the CFO is an integral and important part of any organisation. However, the high cost of having an in-house CFO would be challenging for many companies, as CFOs demand high salaries.

This is when external CFO services come into play. They provide the same services, but at a comparatively affordable cost. Outsourced CFOs in Dubai are highly suitable for small companies.
