Burkland’s Financial Planning & Analysis (FP&A) services give your startup the agility to scale faster and smarter by leveraging your company’s data for decision-making, including data hidden beneath the surface.

While accounting and tax services look back to document what has already happened, FP&A looks ahead to plot the best course forward.

FP&A can assist your Finance Team as a stand-alone service, or in support of your fractional CFO. If your startup isn’t ready to invest in a fractional CFO, FP&A bridges the gap with solid financial modeling and real-time analytics. If you’re already working with a fractional CFO, Burkland’s FP&A services offer a cost-effective support resource to free up the CFO’s time for analysis, fundraising, process improvements, board reporting, and other strategic initiatives. FP&A team members are highly proficient in Excel and Google Sheets, pivot tables, conditional formulas, import ranges, and of course, charts and graphs.

Today’s top-performing startups use FP&A to:

  • Reduce or eliminate guesswork related to critical business decisions
  • Create open-ended models to explore the likely impacts of different decisions
  • Compare data-driven assumptions with actual results along the way
  • Tap into real-time data to be proactive instead of reactive
  • Make the best decisions with the available data in a given moment
  • Get where they want to be on their own terms
  • Scale faster and reach their goals sooner

  • Understand and respond to changing economic conditions
