Our deep experience spanning 20 years across all areas of finance and accounting equips us to help growth-stage businesses and startups with custom solutions to various problems faced by management teams.
Financial Planning & Analysis (FP&A)
While FP&A is currently a 'Hot topic' and a sought-after function in large corporations, many small and mid-sized businesses do not have access to the kind of decision-making support this function provides.
Spanning a series of functions such as budgeting, forecasting, costing, profitability analysis, multi-dimensional tracking, segment reporting, cash flow forecasting and so on, FP&A is a valuable tool in the business management arsenal that empowers leaders to make the right decisions based on data rather than gut feel.
The experienced team of financial analysts and consultants at Guitcom leverage their deep knowledge of data, accounting, business understanding and specialised tools to generate focused reports that address performance and management issues in a business and how to fix them. This brings a niche function within the access of SMEs who can benefit greatly from the insights derived from their own business data.

With a focus on high-quality, client-centric deliveries, Guitcom performs outsourced accounting and finance functions for a variety of growth-stage businesses, including those with a business presence in multiple geographies.

Proven track record, with several long term client relationships
Many SME leaders wear multiple hats, including that of CFO or Finance Head, relying on instinctive financial sense to steer their business.
However, with the complexity in today's business environment, the expertise that a specialist finance leader brings to the table may make all the difference between a well-managed business and one that barely gets by or is constantly stuck in crisis mode. Further, the founder's or management's time would be far better utilised in their core operational area, or in focusing on business growth. However, it is not always viable for small businesses to hire full-time finance leaders, due to talent availability, cost, effective full-time utilisation, and other considerations.
The senior consultants at Guitcom work with SMEs to provide an on-demand Finance Leadership service at various levels ranging from Part-time Finance Manager for your in-house accounting team to Consulting CFO and Independent Directorship on the Board.
