Virtual Finance Director

Finance Directors can be difficult to find, costly to hire and very often businesses don’t need one full-time. So, at BM2020 Limited, we wanted to offer businesses a cost effective, speedy and flexible alternative to a full-time Finance Director.

Dedicated to you

BM2020 Limited are passionate about supporting businesses with high quality financial leadership at a fixed and affordable monthly cost.

Working with you

We realise that businesses may be concerned that they have the necessary and appropriate controls in place to measure and minimise risks and maximise opportunities as well as support in making the right decisions.

Your Virtual Finance Director is always available by phone and email as well as in person when you need them. They will work alongside you with the interests of your business in mind, and offer a level of guidance and expertise that would often be otherwise inaccessible.

Whether you are looking to grow your business over the coming months, years and decades, through raising investment capital, overseas expansion or organically; or you are considering putting an exit strategy in place, our Virtual Finance Director Service will assist you in achieving your business goals.

Case study

As with many fast-growing small businesses, this growing food manufacturer had a great product and brand, but they faced some challenges within the Finance function. Our Virtual Finance Service was perfect for them to resolve their issues. BM2020 Limited were able to recruit a new finance team, identify and correct the errors in their accounting system, implement a new accounting system and bring a faltering annual audit back on track. Our Virtual Finance Director also implemented a new annual budget and recruited a new permanent Finance Director to replace themselves! Our hard work paid off when the company doubled in size and was subsequently sold to an overseas listed company.

Testimonials

“Ella’s Kitchen have worked with 2020 since our pre-launch phase and their advice has been invaluable right from the first review and critique of our initial business plan (which effected some significant changes), through performing company secretarial services to real added value Finance Director stuff.  Stephen Kelly’s advice and calm efficiency helped us complete a minority share sale and his counsel and presence at our Board Meetings has helped us grow at a phenomenal rate each year since launch, whilst managing our cash, stock holding and tax planning to maximise our opportunities.  They are an excellent partner for growing companies, helping define strategy and understanding operational needs and resources.”

Paul Lindley,  Founder of Ella’s Kitchen

“Politics International appointed 2020 as our accountants in 2005 and we have been very pleased with the quality of service 2020 has provided us. They are efficient, responsive to our requirements and understand our business.

Stephen Kelly was our financial adviser during the sale of our company in 2008. We benefited greatly from his advice during the process and he was effective during the face-to-face negotiations with the buyer. His support helped us to realise a good result. 2020 continue as our accountants since the sale, testament to the confidence our parent company also has in them.”

Amanda Cunningham,  Director of Politics International

“I have worked with 2020 for almost eight years now and have never been let down at all during that period.  The advice and support they’ve given in all areas has been first class; they’re flexible, adaptable and really understand our business which means we can rely on them  to guide us in ways that have brought real and measurable benefits.  They’re viewed very much as part of our team and I hope this continues for a long time.”
