About Fincraft

A management accounting specialist for small and emerging businesses, our mission is to provide business owners with financial performance expertise and strategies to support decision making that drive profitability and growth.

Nearly 50 percent of small businesses close their operation within the first three years of their startup journey, with poor financial management identified as one of the top three reasons that lead to business failure. Therefore, to run a successful small business, sound financial management matters.

Fincraft exists to empower business owners and entrepreneurs to launch, scale, and grow their businesses.

We provide financial planning and analysis support to shape strategic outcomes and enhance financial performance. Our services consist of planning and budgeting, management and performance reporting, forecasting, and financial modelling.

We partner with you to design and implement financial management strategies, systems, and processes to achieve financial stability and success.

We also help you make sense of numbers and build confidence in business decision-making.
