What is a Back-Office Family CFO?
At Plumb Family CFO, our idea of a “Back-Office Family CFO” is a team of outsourced accountants who handle the financial reporting, bill pay, and cash flow management of a high-net-worth family, rather than having one single Family CFO who takes care of all the tasks associated with a complicated financial life. A back-office Family CFO, using the Plumb Family CFO approach typically works off-site to handle the accounting and bill pay work remotely, yet still delivers accurate and timely financial information to the client.
Here is a list of five signs that you need a Back-Office Family CFO:
1. Missing due dates and incurring late payments.
You become overwhelmed with the amount of mail received on a daily basis and the pile of bills and due dates keep stacking up. With so many properties, automobiles, credit card statements, household employees and recurring bills, they are hard to keep track of and get paid in a timely fashion. Any incurred late payments can lead to damaging credit scores.
Plumb Family CFO offers comprehensive bill pay services for families and individuals. We oversee your monthly expenses, initiate payments, reconcile your accounts and track your credit card statements. That way, you never miss a bill and have your credit cards monitored at the same time. We also provide weekly or monthly cash flow reports, so you know exactly how much cash is coming in and how much cash is being paid out.

2. Trouble with keeping track of multiple entities, investments, rental properties and trusts.
You may be the head of the household, but it feels like you a running a multimillion dollar company. With great wealth comes great responsibility. Your family’s financial life is complex with multi-faceted undertakings, such as corporate entities, private equity, international exposure, homes and rental properties, and alternative investments. This is a sign that you need help with your personal accounting needs.

4. Financial paperwork is not organized for tax season.
Tax deadline is looming and your CPA is working frantically to gather all your necessary paperwork to calculate the right deductions and track all your income and expenses. It’s costing your family more time and money working with your CPA, because you do not have your financial house in order.

A good amount of your free time is spent handling household finances and it has become too complex to track properly. Your family has acquired a team of trusted advisors to help you handle the maze of legal issues, tax planning, and investments, yet you don’t have a consolidated view of your overall wealth.
