Frequently Asked Questions


Below is a list of some of the most commonly asked questions. If you have a different question, please contact us today.

How are you different from a CPA firm?

FocusCFO is not a certified public accounting firm—while many of us worked as CPAs in the past, today we play a much different role. We understand that having the best grasp possible of your business is the key to making the biggest impact on future growth. That’s why our CFO services are designed to engage all of the key people involved in your company’s financial operations.

I already have a CPA. Can I still use them?

Of course—we complement, rather than compete with, your existing financial team. Our CFOs work to develop a true understanding of how your business operates, so they can provide you with the best possible financial information and data. Working as a team with the people who can offer insight and advice in key business areas—such as your outside CPA, banker, and internal accountant—is not just beneficial; it’s essential.

What are some of the services you provide?

We focus on strategic decision-making and planning with an emphasis on maximizing internal cash flow from operations. Our scalable services include:

  • Business planning
  • Business foundation
  • Maximizing cash flow
  • Assessing operational efficiency
  • Improving internal accounting
  • Revenue and sales pipeline

Is my company too small to hire you?

Our services are perfect for newly established, small, and growing organizations requiring CFO-level services that are scaled to their needs and budget.

We haven’t officially started the business yet. Can you still help us?

Yes, we can help establish a solid foundation for your new business. Set up a strategy session at no cost any time to determine your current needs and to anticipate future needs as your business grows.

What industries do you specialize in?

We work with a variety of industries. A few current clients include:

  • Construction/Development
  • Distribution
  • Manufacturing
  • Not-for-Profit
  • Retail

What do you charge?

You pay only for the work that we do for you and you control your billing by choosing only the services you need and how frequently you need them. This structure allows us to scale with you as you grow. Engaging with FocusCFO is a way to bring on much-needed financial expertise on a flexible and affordable basis. You are investing in the long-term health of your business.

How are you different from an out-sourced CFO?

Unlike outsourced CFO’s that often work from another office, our CFO’s work onsite at the clients office and become a member of the management team.
