Outsourced CFO Services for San Francisco Bay Area Businesses

As a business grows, it needs different types of financial advice services. At conception, the business often needs advice as to the best type of business structure, such as a corporation versus an LLC, and how to compensate employees such as the use of stock options. Safe Harbor can offer advice at this so that the base structure of the business is setup properly and does not cause problems later on. Secondly, as the business grows and succeeds, it often encounters more and more complex financial issues. At this point, the business is ‘betwixt and between.’ It is too large to continue to ignore these important financial issues, but it is too small to afford a full-time chief financial officer. The service offered by Safe Harbor of ‘outsourced CFO’ addresses this predicament. Finally, if a business succeeds in its entirety, then it may make sense for the firm to hire a full-time chief financial officer. Even at this point, however, it may be useful to have an independent, outside vantage point to assist with the complex needs of managing a business. All of this is even more true in San Francisco, California, given the intense regulatory requirements faced by California-based startups and businesses.
