Access to a Finance Director without the full time cost

The recent economic turbulence in the UK has shown how important it is to stay ahead of the game.

Staying ahead of the game is important to achieve the long term strategies of a business as well as to stay in front of the competition in the short term.

At Leonherman we recognise that whilst your business may need a financial director to work alongside the existing management team, it may not be affordable to have a full-time person.

Our solution is the provision of a virtual finance director service.

We work with the directors to understand their future and immediate plans for the business.  Using our professional training and experience, we work with you to formulate a strategic long term plan that achieves your vision.  We give you all the financial help and benefits of a finance director, without having to stretch the budget to pay for one.

In addition to attending regular meetings of the Directors, our services could assist in the following areas:-

  • Budgets
  • Business plans and strategies
  • Cashflow management
  • Computerised bookkeeping advice
  • Monthly management accounts preparation
  • Production of KPIs
  • Exit route planning
  • Tax advisory
  • SAGE training
  • Business sales

As part of our Virtual Finance Director service, we will not have all the answers.  We will ask sufficient questions that will help you come up with the answers yourselves but where this is not possible, we have a network of business contacts we can recommend to you.  We make it our business to know other specialists for the very purpose of helping clients to overcome their own business problems.

We encourage you to take a step back, to have a more objective view of your business, to review the key areas looking at your strategy, marketing, finance and management.  We find that some of our clients are inexperienced in planning for a successful future but others just need support and guidance in a specific area.

Our whole ethos is about wanting to help.  We get involved, we offer ideas, and we are also an excellent sounding-board for your ideas.

Who should I contact?
