What are the roles of a Controller?

A company’s controller usually heads the accounting department. The controller is responsible for the company’s financial statements and general ledger. They’re also in charge of cost accounting, payroll, accounts payable, accounts receivable, budgeting, tax compliance, and various special analyses.

The cost of hiring a full-time CFO or controller can range from $60,000 to over $150,000 per year plus bonuses and benefits. My professional services provide you with experienced temporary support at a small fraction of that cost.

My Controller Services Include:

  • More time to focus on new services, new customers and other core business issues.
  • Better understanding of the financial side of your business, so you have less surprises and more control over the money.
  • Improved decision-making capabilities from clearly seeing the hard and true numbers of your business.
  • A readily available sounding board to help you with those tough business decisions. This board helps you clarify your business plans and can provide guidance on how to set up and structure the meetings.
  • The comfort from knowing that a professional is overseeing, protecting and constantly improving the financial side of your business.
  • A professional who establishes strong financial controls in your business to reduce employee theft and increase profits.
  • Training and managing your accounting staff.
  • Improved quality and timeliness of financial information.
  • Budget preparation and monitoring during the time period necessary
