That’s why we provide strategic and commercially focused finance people to growing businesses across the UK – whether you’re in need of outsourced support, a part-time finance controller, a full-time finance director or an interim finance director, we can help. We connect SMEs with the finance expertise they need.

Full-Time FDs

Flexible Finances enable you to get access to part-time or ad-hoc financial experts as much or as little as you need them.

Outsourced Tasks
Accounting, Payroll and more.

Save time, become more efficient and focus on what you do best by outsourcing specific financial tasks to our team of experts. 

Whether it's accounting and payroll, bookkeeping, tax preparation or financial analysis - our team will pick up the manual and laborious financial headaches.

Management Information

Our Finance Directors will gather information and provide monthly reporting of key financial statements and can include:

  • Balance sheets

  • Profit and Loss (P&L)

  • Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)

  • Plus, much more.

Cash Flow Forecasting

Most businesses fail because they run out of money but a robust cash flow management system will prevent this. The right accounting and finance staff will help put in place:

  • Strategies if you run out of cash

  • Contingency plans to secure loans if there is a shortfall

  • Regular performance reviews to prevent the above happening in the first place.

"I contacted The Finance People in order to find an experienced finance director who could co-ordinate and manage our debt and equity fundraising. The Finance People were very quick and efficient and before I knew it, I was connected with a fantastic FD who has been working with me to develop and articulate our plan. We are close to completing our round and are very happy with The Finance People's support.
