What is a Virtual Controller?

A virtual business controller or fractional controller is an accountant responsible for making sure accounting records are complete and accurate. They also provide reporting analysis to be proactive with company assets.

Controller responsibilities include the following:

  • Accurate financial statements (such as profit and loss, cash flow, and balance sheets)
  • Forecasting to help plan for the next season or year as accurately as possible
  • Key performance indicators to company executives to help confirm you know exactly how well the company is doing at any given time

By using our virtual controller and fractional controller services, you’ll be able to bring in experienced accounting professionals at a fraction of the cost of a full-time controller. If you’re in the process of actively growing your company, a virtual controller can help you be proactive with your financial assets.

Benefits of Virtual Controller Services

With the aid of a virtual financial controller, a company gains insight into the financial health of the business at any point. A small business virtual controller helps your company grow financially. Careful, clear planning and transparent data enable companies to achieve their goals.

Our virtual controller services will help you:

  • Understand your financial statements.
  • Provide you with cash flow analysis.
  • Build a proactive financial plan.
  • Minimize your business risks
  • Control costs, profits, and hiring.

When Is It Time to Hire a Virtual Controller?

An outsourced fractional controller is an investment on which even small business owners can count. If your company is growing, changing directions, or simply getting off the ground, having the resources of a virtual financial controller is by far the best way to prepare for the major decisions to come.

Management of your company’s finances is critical to its long-term growth. Yet, many business owners lack the time and know-how to gain a true understanding of where they stand. The sooner a professional is brought on board, the more likely the company is to make better decisions moving forward.

Working with an outsourced virtual controller—rather than hiring a professional to handle the work for you in-house—also keeps the cost of these services lower. That opens the door for smaller or younger companies to utilize these services to gain insight into the business’s financial health at any time.
