NOW CFO is an outsourced operational accounting firm that started in Salt Lake City in 2005. That means they help businesses, large and small, with anything from basic bookkeeping up to sophisticated financial strategies to grow the business. They do all of this on an hourly basis with no long term contracts, which is very different from the model that most accounting firms use. NOW CFO is focused on helping businesses meet their accounting needs without breaking their budget.

A core principle at CFO NOW is that financial visibility equals smarter business decisions. Ari tells us how NOW CFO can help a business owner get that financial visibility. We talk about some of the factors that might prevent you as a business owner from having that visibility and why it might be impacting the decisions you make.  Without clarity of information and decision making, your business may not be growing at the rate it should be.
