Summary

I am a Freelance Finance Director who specialises in SME's.

I can provide support with cash management, forecasting and looking at streamlining processes to provide direct and useful financial and project reporting.

Small businesses often need this kind of support but are not in a financial position to take on an FD. I can provide those services on a regular monthly basis from one day a month to one or more days a week, on a very reasonable daily rate.

I have helped businesses manage serious cash flow problems and debt with HMRC whilst managing supplier relationships and helping the business move forward.

I can streamline your processes and reporting so that you can see exactly where your profit is coming from and take action to reduce costs where required to maximise overall profit.

If you feel I could be of assistance to your business then please do get in touch and we can discuss your requirements and how I could help.
