Tandem’s complement of talented professional accountants are passionate about what they do but strive to have a healthy balance between work and family life. The benefit of outsourcing is that it gives our personnel the best of both traditional public practice as well as corporate accounting environments. Serving multiple clients through the Tandem network provides variety and interesting work opportunities and allows for the implementation of best practices at organizations without the work overload associated with public practice.

Tandem’s services are tailored to each client’s needs whether that entails outsourced bookkeeping or support services, temporary accounting and internal control consulting, full time job placement or remote or onsite training and support. Unlike temp agencies, Tandem has a complete in house training and certification program for bookkeeping, internal control consulting, controllership and public company reporting. Tandem accountants do not work in isolation, instead they work through the Tandem Process Control Portal to bring best practice approaches and collective know how to each client.

CFO/Controller Services

Are you thinking of pursuing a new acquisitions strategy, considering raising financing for the next phase of your business development plan, or retooling your information technology infrastructure, but a lack of staff resources means you’re frequently in catch up mode just to deliver on your basic finance and accounting responsibilities.

Tandem can help.

In addition to exemplary back office support, we also offer access to senior level financial professionals to help you with your financial planning, reporting and analysis responsibilities.

Collaborative Knowledge

CFO consulting firms offer clients a diverse network of experienced and dynamic financial minds to empower a company with the collective knowledge and expertise of an entire team. A pooled resource base is an extremely powerful tool.

Cost-Effective

Hiring a CFO from a consulting firm saves the company the costly overhead of adding a new executive member to the team and offers no additional obligations for a pricey benefits package.

Growth

A top tier CFO brings a high-level visionary approach to businesses that, because of their size, would typically not be able to afford that proactive level of CFO thinking. This advantageous approach allows a company to achieve unparalleled success and growth.

Flexibility

A CFO consultant will work around a company’s schedule based on their particular corporate needs and objectives. Once again reflecting the cost-effectiveness of outsourcing, the flexibility of a CFO’s schedule allows a company to maximize their effectiveness and plan accordingly.

Funding and Banking

Consulting firms offer extensive knowledge and expertise in the banking industry and can offer a company a tailored funding plan to help a client position themselves for growth.

Outsourcing your company’s CFO can provide you with a higher return on your investment along with sound business advice from an expert with an objective viewpoint.

Internal Control Consulting Services

The Benefits of Outsourcing the Internal Audit:

As the price of qualified candidates continues to rise, the cost of hiring, retaining and training experienced internal auditors escalates.

Expertise & Experience
