Financial Controllers


A financial controller will typically oversee the bookkeeping services and liaise with the tax and audit services while being responsible for the overall smooth operation of the finances of the business.

Some of the typical responsibilities a financial controller will be responsible for are;

  • Supervising / mentoring a team of accounting staff
  • Budget setting
  • Monthly reporting against budget
  • Quarterly overseas reporting
  • Annual liaison with external auditors
  • Annual SPFR preparation
  • FBT, GST and Income tax calculations
  • BAS Submissions
  • ERP Systems Administrator / implementations

Large businesses will have the resources to employ a financial controller on a full-time basis, however this is not a luxury afforded to small and growing businesses.  Most of these small businesses will liaise with their tax accountants for some guidance, which is great, but to truly maintain control, someone needs to be delegated the authority and held accountable to controlling the finances of the business.

Our Financial Controller services afford growing businesses to engage us on a part time basis in this capacity until such time that they have grown enough to be able to employ a full-time Financial Controller.

If your business is growing and you have concern that you’re spending more money than you should or if you’re at risk of employees taking liberties without your knowledge, contact us.  We’ll give you a quote for a part-time financial controller to suit your particular needs.
