Our FDs typically work on site at your premises to a plan which has previously been agreed with you, the business owner. At Proactive FD we don’t believe in giving our clients unpleasant surprises, so all fees will be agreed with you in advance before the work commences. Our fees are in accordance with an agreed daily rate, and typically we work with our clients on a one day per week or two days per month basis depending on business need. At all other times we are available by telephone to address any immediate business issues or to offer objective advice.
