What is VFO?

Our Outsourced Accounting Solutions, known as the Virtual Finance Office (VFO), provide you with access to financial expertise to support in or become your finance department. We provide you with a bespoke service to suit your business’s needs, on a cost-effective basis, providing you with the ability to use our services to support in a particular area of your finance function, or even take over the whole function for you. You therefore receive a time-saving alternative for your business as to how the finance team is made up or run. Managing the finance function efficiently can be a challenge for any business owner, requiring diverse skills from processing to reporting and forecasting. These skills can be hard to find without hiring multiple individuals.

With our expertise in supporting many clients from a wide variety of businesses with VFO services, plus the backup of a highly experienced forward-thinking accountancy practice, we are able to quickly understand your business, work with any accounts system, and have the skills to be able to support in any way you need.

If you need a more thorough review of your finance operations, you can rest assured that your processes will be streamlined, you will be set up to leverage the latest technology, and most importantly, you will receive management information and Key Performance Indicators into your business. As part of the service, even if larger changes aren’t required, as part of us working with you, you will still benefit from us being able to identify and implement specific recommendations within certain areas that can make valuable changes to improve efficiencies, save time, and improve the information available. This empowers you to have information at your fingertips to make confident decisions about your business and its future.

Regardless of your business size or industry, we can customise the services you need, freeing up your time to focus on the growth and management of your business, and giving you peace of mind on a key area in your business.

“We had originally undertaken all the bookkeeping work in house – originally by myself when we started the business and then with admin assistants.
We thought outsourcing the invoicing and bookkeeping on SAGE may prove cost effective and save time in the office and this has proved to be the case with the service you offer.
We can confirm we have experienced an excellent service and everything is running smoothly which has freed up time in the office for other fee paying work.
We would definitely recommend your service to other companies.”
