How MyCFO Works

The MyCFO service provides individuals with a business accounting service alongside other financial strategy solutions to help them manage both their business and personal lives. MyCFO accountants can handle your financial accounting, and our wealth management and financial planning professionals can function as business and finance consultants.

The service is designed to provide individuals with the knowledge and expertise that applies to their respective scenarios, but in a package managed by our team.

Who MyCFO Is For

Managing complex financial circumstances can be challenging for people in a wide range of life situations. That’s why our MyCFO service is more than a business accounting service. It includes a wide range of services to help you stay on top of your finances, from offering bookkeeping to managing balance sheets.

At 1DB, we are committed to helping clients not only acquire wealth but also to work toward long-term financial health. Our MyCFO services are particularly valuable in this area, and they can be a fit for individuals in a variety of situations, including:

Small Business Owners

Many small business owners obtain significant wealth over the course of their lives, especially if they launch multiple startups that achieve liquidity events. As these entrepreneurs gain wealth and work to run increasingly profitable organizations, they often come across complexity issues that arise when operating at a larger scale.

A business accounting service can handle tax returns, manage payroll services, take charge of financial reporting and otherwise help you stay on top of your finances. Our MyCFO services can help you improve your business and protect your personal wealth through strategic consulting services.

Entrepreneurs

Many entrepreneurs may find themselves running larger organizations at some stages in their careers. In these situations, the complexity of keeping abreast of financial management tasks can become overwhelming. This is even more true if you take on a business – either through purchase or by being hired – that had poor bookkeeping, accounting and tax preparation practices in the past.

Getting a business into solid financial management shape isn’t the only benefit of the MyCFO service, as it also includes consulting in key areas like succession planning and exit strategies.

Executives

For some executives, the lines between their work lives and their personal lives are blurred, even when it comes to finances. Between expense management and stock options, the links between an individual’s business assets and personal finances can be close. The MyCFO service can provide personalized insights into how to balance priorities, manage wealth and plan for the future.

MyCFO Is for Anyone With a Complicated Financial Life

Whether you’re a successful small business owner, an entrepreneur, an executive or somebody else who has built wealth over the course of your life, you’ve probably seen how complex it is to manage your finances. Whether it’s dealing with complex tax laws and accounting processes or determining the ideal investment strategies to achieve your lifestyle goals, there’s a great deal to think about.

Our MyCFO service is built to provide personal finance and business accounting services, giving you a trusted advisor for those times in life when the lines between your business and personal finances become complicated.
