The Financial Control Model for SMEs

Paul Webb provides large company financial controls for SMEs (see case studies for examples of benefits). This is a cost effective alternative to employing a qualified accountant, where greater experience and lower cost are the differences.

Using the Doorfit Products Ltd. project (see case study) as a model:

The consultant trains client staff to produce as much of the necessary work as possible claiming, as a matter of professional pride, "it is my job to do myself out of a job".
Paul provides the benefits of an in house financial controller. Typically one day a week may be required for the first three to six months. Thereafter, an average of two days per month should be required.
