More than 50% of small businesses now have a CFO or controller managing their accounts.

Even for small businesses, there are so many regulations and nuances to tax laws that it’s become imperative to bring in an expert. Through Berlin Ramos’s Accounting Advisory Services team, we will address the main concerns connected with your finances, providing assistance in the three main areas of CFO responsibilities – cash flow, controllership, and forecasting in a clear and understandable manner.

The CFO Role in Cash Flow

Cash flow analysis is the number one most-often ranked job responsibility of a CFO. This is why Berlin Ramos offers experienced CFOs and bookkeeping staff to our clients.

A Berlin Ramos CFO or bookkeeper will assist you in overseeing the structure of your entire company. They will review and offer ongoing guidance on your debt, equity, and internal financing – establishing policies and procedures for credit and collections, purchasing, bill payment, and other financial obligations.

Berlin Ramos CFOs and bookkeepers also take into account all liabilities, including legal contracts, tax obligations, contingencies, leases, insurance summaries, and expectations from loan covenants or the board of directors. The sole purpose of these services is to present the true picture of your company’s current financial condition, so the best decisions can be made for your future prosperity.

Working with our Accounting Advisory Services team, you have access to the collective knowledge and experience of the entire Firm regarding best practices, relevant research, and industry resources. Regardless of the complexity of any issue, our team can draw upon real-life, practical experience designed to help you gain a competitive advantage and accelerate your growth.
