About Us

Do you want to raise funds?  Perhaps you would like to make an acquisition or prepare your business for sale?  Could your team mount a Management Buy Out (MBO) and where could they find funding?

We believe that you, the Business Owner, deserve the best advice from an experienced Finance Director.  That’s why all our virtual finance directors (VFDs) are qualified accountants and have bought or sold companies and raised funds for businesses.

We can provide a virtual finance function – imagine having your own Virtual Finance Director & competent Virtual Financial Controller team to transform your finance function, all for the cost of a full-time bookkeeper!

The thing I liked about vfdnet’s approach was being flexible, professional, and practical, but most importantly in my view, working with you not for you” Mark – MD and business owner

What Our Clients Say

“Our Virtual Finance Director Barry came on board last year to help me with the financial aspects of running my business. During some difficult personal circumstances for me, he has provided a very solid and mature sounding board and fitted in really well with both the commercial and financial teams. He has ensured that I now receive accurate and reliable management information, which has provided confidence to both the bank and auditors, as well as supporting the implementation of a new IT system. I have been delighted with his contribution towards the success of the business. “

Ian H – Owner Manager

“When I was Chairman I worked with our experienced Virtual Finance Director, David between 2012 and 2015, in one of the most difficult business environments for a software business. David was a key member of the team keeping everyone focused on delivering business and driving cashflow. Without David’s clear understanding of the issues, strategic thinking, willingness to address opportunities and problems head on, I believe the outcome would have been very different. David was the cornerstone of the management team.”

James W – Chairman

“I am delighted to say that the Business Sale process ran smoothly and efficiently. Our Buyer actually complimented us on our DD readiness and the ease of the transaction. I am very aware that this transaction would not have been possible without the significant groundwork and system development put in place by Peter & his team. The deal was signed in July 2015. AIthough the acquirer run a centralised finance function based in the USA I understand they have asked Peter to stay on as a consultant to help with the transition to the buyers systems. This sale could not have made without Peter’s substantial efforts. We owe Peter a substantial debt of gratitude.”

Christopher W – Chief Executive
