Firefly Finance Solutions
FTSE 100 calibre finance for ambitious SMEs
Firefly Finance Solutions exists to provide ambitious SMEs with an affordable, first-class finance function.
Through its four service lines, Firefly’s experienced FD provides outsourced, end-to-end finance support including efficient processing, accurate and on time accounting and insightful management information, resulting in quality business intelligence and improved decision making.
Many ambitious, fast-growing SMEs have the need for senior, experienced commercial support but are not yet at the stage where they can sustain a highly paid in house finance team. Firefly Finance Solutions provides an experienced, FTSE 100 calibre FD who can help to bring efficiencies to existing processes, implement new technologies, develop team members, support transformation programmes or focus on analysis and the development of insightful management information to assist the strategy of a business.
Firefly’s services are perfectly tailored for a growing SME, combining focused senior level expertise with the flexibility and affordability that cannot be achieved through traditional accountancy firms.

“John joined my team at Pulse and quickly became a valued and trusted member of the management board at a very difficult time. He hit the ground running and very quickly became a key player in developing and delivering the ‘turnaround plan’ to potential VC and trade investors. Where John set himself apart was his ability to understand and challenge the business within a very short period of time developing robust financial models and successfully communicating them to senior figures within the business and potential external investors.”
