Virtual Finance Director Services
Are you looking for a virtual finance director with sound financial acumen and the ability to help transform your business?
Employing a full-time in-house financial director is a big commitment for most businesses. That is why a virtual Finance Director makes perfect sense.
You get the benefit of an FD with years of know-how across multiple industries and in growing businesses at a fraction of the cost. What’s more, there are no long term contracts to worry about – you can cancel anytime.
Don’t fall into the trap of relying on your accountant to steer you in the right direction. They are great at dealing with historical accounts and tax returns, but they won’t have the skills and experience to guide your business into the future.
As the saying goes: “Accountants count beans, Finance Directors grow gardens“.
Why Use FDX Virtual Finance Director Services
First of all, we are not a recruitment company. All of our Finance Directors have been hand-picked to join our team.
Every one of our virtual FDs is qualified from a recognised accountancy institute and has held financial director roles in companies of varying sizes and across numerous industries in the UK. You can rest assured that they have the experience and know-how to work alongside your board and staff.
Using a virtual Finance Director from FDX comes with a host of benefits including:
No Salary Overheads
One of the biggest benefits is not incurring a large annual salary for a full-time FD. You also don’t have to worry about pension contributions, sickness or holiday pay.
We hand-pick one of our virtual FDs to match your needs. So there is no need for you to go through the recruitment process of advertising, interviewing and hiring a full-time Finance Director.
Support The Owner / MD
Business owners, MD’s and CEO’s have enough on their plate without having to deal with the burden and mundane tasks associated with finance.
Our FDs take away the pressure so they can focus on the tasks that drive the business forward. Once this happens, we notice that every business starts to flourish.
No Long Term Contracts
We will offer a truly bespoke package tailored to your business and needs. Our virtual FDs are available anywhere from one day per month to two days per week or on a project by project basis.
We offer flexible arrangements, so you decide when and where you want the support and knowledge of our Finance Directors.
Proven Track Record
Our FDs have a successful track record of helping small businesses in the start-up stage, SME’s during the growth stage or those who are planning for an exit.
In these challenging times, you will want a virtual FD who has the experience to quickly solve problems, spot opportunities to pivot, make strategic decisions and generally be a solid sounding board.

Client’s Who Trusted Us To Help
Managing Partner, Legal Firm, Glasgow
When FDX started working with us, our designated Finance Director joined our 5-person management board. It was reinvigorating for the team.
Initially working 1-2 days per week their wide commercial knowledge and experience of working with other legal firms helped me. They also assisted the other partners to manage the firm strategically, and operationally, through challenging times and supported us in planning ahead for wider changes expected in the legal sector.
I highly recommend using FDX, you will notice a difference.
Managing Director, Retail Business, Manchester
When our lenders suggested we engage a virtual FD I wasn’t particularly keen as I couldn’t see what value they would bring compared to our accountants.
Six months later I cannot believe how one day a week has made such a difference, not only to our business but also to myself.
I now have time to concentrate on the tasks that only require my input. This has had a significant impact on our bottom line as well as being personally less stressed.
I just wished we had gone down this route years ago.
Managing Director, Engineering, Birmingham
As we started to expand we needed better information on how our business was operating and our accountants didn’t have the skill set we were looking for.
We turned to FDX to provide some expert help and they were able to provide someone from their network who had the right knowledge and experience to start making a difference straight away.
I now know really quickly what is happening in our business and have clear KPI’s on our present and likely future performance. Our virtual FD has been a real boost to our team.
