What Is a Financial Controller?

A Financial Controller is a management level expert responsible for supervising the quality of accounting and financial reporting within a business.

When I contact EFM, I'm talking to people who understand business finance from a Finance Director point of view, not just as an accountant. There are plenty of accountancy firms and financial controllers who just don't have the in-depth experience to apply finance from the business perspective.

I don't think the financial management of the business would be as good without them; we need to be confident in the management of our financial affairs and I get that from EFM.

We've been with EFM since 2012. The key thing is that you're buying a level of expertise that most financial controller firms just don't provide - that's what we get with EFM. That's one of the key differences.

There's always a rapid response from EFM. They deal with issues when they arise. Everyone is very communicative. Above all, they know what you have to do when you run a business.
