Outsourced CFO Services

What is an Outsourced CFO?

An Outsourced CFO, or Chief Financial Officer, oversees all financial and tax-related aspects of your Las Vegas business and offers advice aimed at:

  • increasing your revenues,
  • increasing profit margins,
  • increasing net profits,
  • reducing your taxes / tax planning,
  • increasing the net worth of the business owner / partners,
  • helping your business grow profitably,
  • offering ongoing support and oversight of your business,
  • helping you make important business decisions backed by data, forecasts, and projections,
  • increasing your chances of success.

Hiring an in-house CFO full-time can be prohibitively expensive. According to Glassdoor, an average CFO’s salary in Las Vegas is $144,529 per year – not including benefits.

An outsourced CFO at Ratio CPA does everything for you for a fraction of the cost.

An Outsourced CFO is sometimes also called a Virtual CFO or Part-time CFO.

Definitely less than hiring a full-time CFO in-house! According to Glassdoor, an average CFO’s salary in the Las Vegas area is $144,529 per year – not including benefits.

Our clients know their entire fee and scope upfront, before deciding to sign an engagement letter with us.

How often would I meet with my CFO?

You will meet with your CFO at least once a month for a presentation of reports, prognoses, forecasts, and anything else that your CFO had been working on.

Other than that, you would meet with your CFO for consultation on an as-needed basis, depending on your needs and the events transpiring within your company.

Would my CFO meet with my accountants, bookkeeper, payroll staff, executives and management?

Of course! Our outsourced CFO services can include ongoing meetings with your accounting staff and bookkeepers, as well as key members of your team.

What types of business decisions can a CFO help me with?

A CFO’s main goal is to facilitate profitable business growth for your Las Vegas company.

A CFO can offer advice concerning operations and strategic business moves to create competitive advantage.

Also, they can consult on purchases, optimal employee structures and management structures, loan and lease structures, sales of shares, pricing of services and products and cash flow solutions.

In addition, a CFO can help with reducing taxes (tax planning), consult on feasibility of new ventures, ensure compliance with regulations.

Finally, provide a voice of realism for your organization, backed by knowledge and experience!

What size businesses need an Outsourced CFO / Controller?

There’s no clear answer here, but businesses grossing at least $1,000,000 annually are best suited for our outsourced CFO services.

Once companies reach this level of complexity, owners find it difficult to juggle core business tasks while still keeping a sharp eye on accounting, taxes and finances. That’s where our CFO services come in!

Many Las Vegas firms offer CFO services. How do I choose the right firm to work with?

That’s a tricky question – but we recommend having a conversation with the CFO/CPA firm you are looking to hire.

  • What is the biggest asset you will bring to this role?
  • How many years of experience do you have?
  • What is your point of focus when working with a client?
  • What experience do you have in my industry?
  • How much time will you be dedicating to my company?
  • What quality of services can I expect?
  • What minimum contract period can I expect?
  • What happens if we don’t see eye to eye?
  • What will NOT be covered by your services?
