Virtual Finance Office

Our Virtual Finance Office (VFO) is an outsourced accountancy solution providing you with all the services you would expect from an in-house accounts team, without the overheads or administrative burden of direct employment.

We offer a menu of services so you can choose what you need and when you need it. But with James Cowper Kreston it is more personal than this.

Let us do the work

We can provide an end-to-end outsourced solution for all financial requirements. Or just some of them – working with and alongside your in-house team.


Creating a virtual finance office is never ‘one size fits all’ so we firstly take time to talk to you and understand your business, understand what you are aiming for, and so help you to identify what you need.  We can then match this to the services that we provide. 

These services might include anything from book-keeping, management accounting and reporting, VAT returns, treasury function and credit control to forecasting and scenario planning, attending management and board meetings and acting as a virtual finance controller. 

We will put systems in place to ensure segregation of duty, review and oversight of transactions and operations – something that simply isn’t possible when the finance team is just you.

Of course, there may come a point where it makes sense to take the finance functions in house – and at that point you will find that having the systems and controls already documented by your virtual team is a massive advantage to you, and your new in-house team.
