The Roles You Need to Build a Successful Accounting Team

In order for a business to run effectively, it must have structures in place that support financial reporting excellence. At TGG, we have created the TGG Way™ to help small businesses receive the expertise they need to succeed. Every TGG client is assigned a team of four accounting professionals to support their financial needs. Here are the roles we believe contribute to the success of your accounting team:

  • The CFO: The CFO understands client goals and works to help them reach those goals. The CFO develops financial and operational strategies, and use certain metrics to maintain and improve business performance.
  • The Controller: The Controller is accountable for accounting operations, which includes the productions of financial statements with insightful commentary, and a comprehensive set of controls and budgets to mitigate risk.
  • The Accounting Manager: The Accounting Manager is for all financial accounting and transaction processing. Accounting Managers operate as ambassadors for proper financial accounting standards.
  • The Staff Accountant: The Staff Accountant is responsible for the day-to-day transactional accounting. They build the financial accounting foundation for the Accounting Manager to produce complete and accurate financial statements.
