Broadly speaking FC&A performs two activities: financial planning and control on an interim basis, as well as administration. The controller role provides supervision for (accurate) accounting, complete with analyses, prognoses, budgets and reports. Managers receive relevant advice and there are systematic checks to determine whether the business is on track. These tasks are usually performed on an interim basis, part time and on site. FC&A provides these services to (semi-) public bodies as well as businesses.
