An Outsourced CFO does what an accountant can’t. We guarantee you will see a cashflow positive outcome from our services or you don’t pay. It’s that simple.
Why An Outsourced CFO?
When business owners think of their company’s financial tasks, a few things usually come to mind: tax returns, bookkeeping and BAS statements to name a few.
While important, these are all reactive aspects of your business that are squarely in the domain of accountants.
If you want someone who can forecast and futureproof the financial health of your business, find ways to add free cash flow and dig into the specifics of your business model to improve your bottom line, you want an Outsourced CFO.

The Most Important Question: Who Are You?
You’re a successful businessperson. You’ve taken an idea and a dream and you’ve turned it into a reality. Maybe you brought your company up from when it was a one-man operation. Maybe you took over a thriving enterprise with a responsibility to keep it running smoothly and expand its influence.
Now you’re here, you’re bringing in a significant amount of cash and from the outside in everything looks fine. Sales are steady, employees are happy, and yet for some reason, you’re stagnating. You’re not growing as quickly as you want. You know you’re leaving money on the table.
Having a nagging sense that your business could be doing more doesn’t help if you don’t do anything about it.
That’s where we come in. With our years of experience and a fresh set of eyes, we can identify the issues you can’t because you’re too close to the problem.
Who are you? You’re an entrepreneur who is ready to stop treading water and start having your company live up to its full potential.
> How much does an outsourced CFO cost?
An outsourced CFO can provide small-to-medium businesses with expert financial advice, beyond what your accountants and bookkeepers are able to offer. This expertise is provided at a fraction of the cost of a full-time employee.
We tailor our services to your business and your needs.
> What is the difference between what you provide and what my accountant provides?
Accountants are experts at providing tax returns, financial statements and tax planning advice. They focus on what has happened in the prior year to get you to today and how to most effectively manage your tax affairs.
CFO’s are experts at planning, cashflow and strategic management. They focus on where you currently are and where you want to be in 12-24 months. A CFO will help you devise strategies, both operational financial and give you a roadmap to reach your goals.
We won’t try to convince you to let us do your accountants job, so why would you use your accountant to do our job?
> How long until I begin to see benefits from engaging William Advisory as my outsourced CFO?
Our goal is to provide your business with immediate benefits, our experience coupled with a fresh set of eyes looking at your business, allows us to identify some “quick wins” so that we are paying for ourselves in Month 1.

> What does your satisfaction guarantee involve?

Our goal is to provide significant value to your business, rather than add an extra cost.
We stand by a satisfaction guarantee to give you comfort and the knowledge that If we are not able to make our engagement cashflow positive, (ie: we will help you increase your profit by substantially more than you will pay us), just give us 14 days’ notice and we can cease the agreement at any time!

SalesPond – Marketing Services Industry
We began working with Bora Kender, the founder of SalesPond roughly 3 years ago.
He was facing increasing cashflow pressure brought on by his businesses’ rapid growth and success. While this is a good problem to have, increased revenue and increasing profits weren’t being reflected by the company’s bank account. SalesPond brought us in specifically to fix this problem.
We quickly identified some process improvements to unlock the cash that was being held up in SalesPond’s balance sheet.
We implemented an accounts receivable policy and a process for extending credit to customers. This “Quick Win” procedure was able to reduce debtor days from 65 to 53 within months.
Next, we worked on ways to make it easier for customers to make payments and created a new billing policy. We gave them the option of making direct debit payments and installed more upfront components to sales contracts. Essentially, we incentivized customers to provide the business with shorter, more beneficial trading terms.
Ultimately, the improved cashflow has allowed the business to grow both domestically and internationally. SalesPond is now APAC’s leading sales acceleration company, working with the world’s largest companies.
“William Advisory Group has provided SalesPond with both Financial & Strategic advice that has been invaluable to our success”
– Bora Kender, Founder
