Challenges for the finance function and CFO

The task of the finance function is not merely transaction processing, but also decision support.

 
The role of the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and the finance function are key as they are now faced with many new challenges, including:
  • compliance with new and revised accounting standards
  • optimisation of financial reporting processes
  • keeping up to date with accounting and regulatory changes
  • providing regular training to the finance team to enable  them to implement accounting knowledge in practice
  • accuracy and timeliness of forecasts, projections and financial results
  • existing accounting systems not being able to provide information required by new standards or fulfil business requirements
  • maintaining sufficient finance resources to meet the organisation’s objectives
  • the ongoing day-to-day pressures placed on the finance function.
