Grow or Revive Your Business with Our CFO Services
When you are ready to grow your business, you might be looking for the expertise of a CFO but might not be ready to hire one full time yet. That’s where our Interim CFO services can fill the gap for you. We meet with you, develop goals and strategies for growth together, determine your needs and put together a plan to get your business on track. The same applies for a business that might be struggling and needing a plan to get back on their feet. Take a peek at a few of the things our CFO Services include.
Cash Flow Management – Cash flow management makes it possible for you to know how much money is coming in and going out of your business and is an essential part of your business’ finances. It can help spot trends, pinpoint problems, predict when, where and how cash needs will occur, and forecast how much money will be available in the future allowing you to develop cash strategies to meet your business needs.
Break-even Analysis for Small Businesses – A break-even analysis tells you when your business is expected to be able cover expenses and is useful throughout the stages of your business. Understanding what is necessary to keep your business going and make money is especially vital in the startup phase but can also help you take next steps in the growth of your business.
Budgeting & Forecasting– Having a budget for your business is essential, not just to help you control your operating costs and spending, but to give you a clear view into the resources that will need to be allocated for a given period of time. When you add forecasting to the mix, you can provide a realistic projection of the company’s financial state helping to successfully plan for the future.
Labor Cost Management– Labor costs are often a significant part of a small business budget, and it’s important to be aware of your payroll costs. Evaluating your labor costs can help you manage what is likely one of your largest expenditures helping you to know things like whether you are overstaffed or understaffed, whether or not you can give raises and other personnel questions you may have.
Long Range Business Planning– Building a long range plan for your business encourages you to develop the prioritzaton of your goals and provides you with a roadmap of where you want to be and the milestones along the way.
Our CFO services can give you a clear picture of what’s happening with your business finances, help determine goals to hit to be successful, and plan a strategy to meet those goals.
Buy or Sell Your Business
Whether you are considering purchasing a business or wanting to sell your business, we can guide and advise you through the process. In both types of transactions, similar information is reviewed but from different perspectives and with different objectives in mind. We can help you navigate all those questions and issues that may come up including negotiations, risk management, exit strategies, profitability, agreements and more.
If you intend to pass on your business to a family member or associate, planning for your succession is key to a smooth transition. The planning process can be emotional and it’s easy to overlook important details that need to be considered for a successful transfer. Let us walk you through the process—we’ll worry about all the details, so you don’t have to.

Last year I was in a bind to get my taxes done prior to the deadline. Brian Manthe at Legacy CPAs was able to help me organize the information needed in order to file my taxes on time. I would personally recommend their services to anyone that is looking for a personable and well qualified CPA to assist in your tax service needs.Ken Ogawa
