Adequately capitalizing your company can be one of the most difficult tasks facing today's business owners...more

Operating a business is difficult enough without also having to manage the day-to-day finances and operations. Many companies have clerical staff and an Accounting Manager or even a Controller who can handle the traditional general-accounting functions, including Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Payroll, and Financial Reporting. And, with that kind of overhead, it may be difficult to justify hiring a full-time CFO. But, what about the longer-term health of your business and the goals of the owner(s) and senior team?

As your part-time CFO, Central Ohio Business Advisors addresses your business needs, which includes the following:

  • Developing a Strategic Plan that meets the goals of your company's ownership
  • Creating a solid Business Plan
  • Handling Banking and Financing
    -Who's managing whom? Remember, you're the customer.
  • Overseeing Risk Management
  • Developing a Strategic Plan
  • Performing Operational Analyses & Benchmarking
    -Is your company operating at peak efficiency? -Are you using best practices? -Who are your competitors, and what are they doing?
  • Forecasting Cash Flow
