FAQ’s

Who needs a Virtual CFO?

Virtual CFO services are ideal for organisations looking to fill a void in their finance leadership team without paying for an expensive in house CFO. A Virtual CFO assumes the responsibilities of a full time CFO without the added expense. Virtual CFOs help you manage the lifeblood of your business cash flow and profitability to help you succeed.

What is a Virtual CXO?

A virtual CXO or an-on-demand CXO is a C-suite executive (CEO, COO, CMO, etc.) who partners with you to provide high level functional leadership to drive growth and set standards of leadership excellence within your organisation.

Why do should we hire a Virtual functional leader when we can manage our business ourselves?

You could easily spend months or even years preparing an investor grade business plan, go to market strategy or achieving operational excellence. This is the time you should probably be spending developing your product/solution, identifying customers and building employee morale. In addition to providing functional leadership services, we bring fresh ideas, perspectives and innovative problem solving approaches that you might need to drive your business forward.

How do I benefit from a part-time CFO?

A part-time CFO brings the same level of financial expertise as a full-time CFO but at a fraction of the cost. A Virtual CFO or an Interim CFO provides your organisation with much needed finance and strategic leadership to transform your vision into reality.

What’s more? You can choose the amount of engagement you want with your CFO partner – whether you need additional assistance for special projects or want to lower your monthly spend you have the flexibility to engage with a CFO Partner on your own terms.

How much does it cost to hire a part-time CFO?

A part-time CFO comes at a fraction of the cost of a full-time executive employee. Spice Route Finance offers flexible packages tailored to your organisation’s unique business needs.

We create a competitive pricing plan after initial (free) consultation with clients.

How long does a typical engagement last?

The length of time of a CFO service engagement varies and is based on a number of factors including:
 – Business needs and challenges
 – Budget
 – Size of the organisation or team
 – Scope of the engagement

The length of our consulting engagements has varied from a few weeks for a quick assessment to a few years for startup finance advisory and business transformation
initiatives.

How is the scope of CFO Services determined?

Depending on the business goals, challenges and size of the organisation, a project scope is
typically determined during the initial consultation sessions. For complex challenges and enterprise clients, we typically recommend an assessment phase at the beginning of the project. This ensures that we identify and prioritize everything correctly and develop the best solution to meet your goals.

How do you start and organize CFO Service engagements?

Although we tailor just about everything to your business needs and goals, the typical consulting project is started and organized in the following ways:

1. Initial consultation meeting(s) to determine your goals and current business challenges.

2. If we require deeper information before or during building a proposal, we’ll have you sign a mutual NDA (non-disclosure agreement).

3. We’ll develop a proposal that includes a SOW (statement and scope of work), pricing, timelines and any options or recommendations.

4. Once the scope of the project is agreed, we’ll establish you in our systems for effective collaboration (if applicable). This will also include a regular communications plan and milestone reporting.

5. We’ll work our brilliance to make you and your business shine.

6. Towards the end of the project, we’ll finalize knowledge transfer so the results are sustainable.

Although we’ll do an official closeout of the project, we’ll always be checking in to ensure that everything is working the way it should and you continue seeing the results you expect.

We want your Spice Route experience to be one you’ll never forget in a good way. Working with a CFO Partner shouldn’t be a hassle. We work with you and your teams to make sure the experience and process are great while working towards your goals and the operations of your dreams.

We don't want to become permanently dependent on a CFO Services firm. How does Spice Route keep that from happening?

As much as we love our clients, we don’t want you dependent on us either!

In every CFO Service engagement engagement, we work with your finance team or core team as an ongoing knowledge transfer. This makes our transition out of your business smooth and also keeps costs down over the course of the engagement.

Although the consulting profession can have a reputation of building dependency and billing recurring fees, Spice Route Finance does consulting differently. We believe we have failed if you become dependent on us once you’ve achieved defined milestones.

Our clients keep bringing us back, but for new career and business challenges not to continue to support challenges we’ve solved.

Do you help startups raise money?

Our CFO Partners provide you with sound financial reporting and help you navigate the regulatory landscape to position you as an attractive investment proposition for venture capitalists and other institutions. We can sometimes make informal introductions to potential investors or other intermediaries.
