The Shared Finance Center offers outsourced accounting, bookkeeping and virtual CFO support to small businesses. Outsourcing allows you to focus more time on your core business and less time managing the day to day financials. Outsourcing gives you access to financial experts whose goal is to make your business succeed.
Our mission is to provide flexible and comprehensive finance office support to business owners so they can focus solely on leading their business, creating jobs and growing the local economy.
The Shared Finance Center is headquartered in Roswell, Georgia and we work with clients across the United States.
We want to help you grow your small business
We understand that small businesses do not have access to the same level of financial support that larger businesses have. In the rapidly changing business environment that we operate in today, bookkeeping and traditional CPA/accounting services alone are not sufficient for businesses that are trying to grow.
We focus on providing our bookkeeping, accounting, and virtual CFO services to startups and early stage businesses that have a significant need for insightful and timely information. Our customers are looking for a solution that will free up the owner but not incur the cost of full time professional staff.
The Shared Finance Center matches the latest cloud-based accounting technology with corporate finance functions to give your small business complete support for the finance, bookkeeping and accounting functions. We provide our services on a fixed fee basis knowing that businesses shouldn’t have to worry about how their service providers are managing their time. Our work for you is managed by our dedicated team of experts and service suppliers who have helped like-minded entrepreneurs with their accounting needs for years.
Our services are affordable, process-based, transparent and reliable. Most importantly, The Shared Finance Center allows you to spend less time managing day-to-day financials, and more time focused on building your business or enjoying the fruits of your labors.
