Introducing Finance Director on Demand service for SMEs

Written by Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce | 27 Jun 2019

EFM has recently launched a new service "Finance Director on Demand" designed as a free helpline for SMEs providing practical guidance and support with business financial matters.

Here at EFM, we have met a lot of SMEs who are struggling with their finances and need professional guidance and support to overcome their challenges. This is why EFM has set up this free helpline to make sure you have access to our pool of experts on hand.

How does it work?

A phone call consultation lasts 15 minutes, simply dial the number (during office hours) or request a call back (out of office hours) and one of our EFM Experts will be in touch within the next working day.

 On the other end of the line…Who we are?

Finance Director on Demand is delivered by highly experienced Finance Directors, with track records of delivering growth, control and profits for our clients. With a broad range of skills across both Financial Management and Business Advisory disciplines, our team has the ability to provide expert support to growing businesses, and to help you to drive the performance and value of your business, whatever your goals.
