For more information about our VCFO services, check out our FAQ section below.

What services do VCFOs provide?
  • We meet with our business partners regularly to guarantee their business’ financial success.
  • We can take care of payroll, interpret financial information, suggest ways to minimize expenditures, and find potential sources of capital.
  • We work with clients to plan out effective financial processes, maintain and report financial activities, and manage financial risks.
Why use a VCFO?
There are several reasons to utilize outsourced financial support:

  • When you partner with an outside financial advising firm, you gain access to a team of highly skilled and experienced accounting professionals with extensive knowledge and professional networks.
  • VCFOs provides an inside look into the best practices for evaluating and enhancing the structure of your business.
  • VCFOs can help you save money by only charging for the time you need, when you need it.
What types of companies do VCFOs work with?
  • VCFOs like Murray & Kirchner can assist a range of clients across all industries and in all sizes.
Does the “virtual” in virtual Chief Financial Officer mean you are only available online or over the phone? What if I need on-site assistance?
  • The “virtual” in VCFO just means that we are not technically your employees. We would be happy to assist you wherever we are most effective, be that on-site or online assistance.
What’s the difference between a VCFO and a public accountant? Do I need both?
  • The difference between a VCFO and an accountant is sort of like the difference between a contractor and an architect. Your accountant doesn’t do the same sort of hands-on work and doesn’t partner as closely with your business.
If my business already has financial leadership, do I also need a VCFO?
That depends on the work your CFO does and whether or not they can provide all of the services a VCFO can. Contact Murray & Kirchner to learn more about our VCFO services, which include:

  • VCFOs can provide you with expert financial and operational advice in a timely manner.
  • You can trust us to help you make strategic decisions to help your business succeed.
  • We can evaluate your business’ organization and suggest ways to make it more effective and efficient.
  • We are made up of a team of accounting professionals with decades of experience.
  • Our team can put together an attractive financial package and present it to your banker in order to ensure you get the financing you need to reach your goals.
  • We can help you take your business to the next level.
Is partnering with a VCFO expensive?
  • VCFOs can actually help you save money because we will only charge you for the time you need. We don’t do the day-to-day activities that are handled by your staff, instead using our skills where they can be most helpful to you.
If I don’t need weekly assistance, should I still get a VCFO? What if I only need help completing a project?
  • VCFOs can help you for as long or short-term as you need them to.
What’s the difference between a VCFO and a staffing agency?
  • VCFOs provide your business with a full team of support on an as-needed basis rather than in-house full-time employees who will most likely not have the same resources and experience.
Do VCFOs assist with tax audits and preparation?
  • VCFOs can assist with any accounting task or project that may arise.
What should I do if I decide to enlist a VCFO?
