We love to build a relationship with our businesses. We will come on-site to meet key employees and get a feel for the business. However, long term our team prefers to work remote.

Our approach allows you to try out a virtual CFO/Controller so you can test the waters. The majority of companies DO NOT need a full time CFO or Controller. Rock Solid’s approach gives you access to top-notch advice to fit in your budget.
What’s the different between a CFO and Controller?
CFO is more of a strategic partner in your business. They understand all of your numbers, but think about how those numbers impact your business from a risk, profit, & growth perspective. The Controller’s focus is more on all thing accounting. They are responsible for implementing operating processes and accounting functions within an organization. They are looking back more often than forward, like a CFO.
Do you do payroll?
