Our Hiring Process – What do ‘Community-Approach’ and ‘Invite-to-Apply’ mean?

‘Invite-to-Apply’ is the process by which we shortlist candidates for the majority of projects on our platform. Often, due to the confidential nature of our clients’ projects, we do not release projects to our whole platform but using the matching technology and expertise of our internal team we select candidates who are the best fit for our clients’ needs. This approach also ensures engagement with our community of professionals on the Fintalent platform, and is a benefit both to our clients and independent professionals, as our freelancers have direct access to the roles best suited to their skills and are more likely to take an interest in a project if they have been sought out directly. In addition, if a member of our community is unavailable for a project but knows someone whose skill set perfectly fits the brief, they are able to invite them to apply for the role, utilizing the personal networks of each talent on our platform.

In addition, our team actively scouts for the best talent who have experience in investment banking or have worked at a global top management consultancy. All of our community-referred talent and scouted talent are subject to a rigorous screening process. As such, over the last 18 months totaling more than 750 hours of onboarding calls, of which only 40% have received an invite-link after the call.

During your initial engagement with a member of our Fintalent talent pool with no risk.

There is no minimum commitment per project, but generally projects last at least 5 days and can last 12+ months.

Everything you need to know about Financial Statements

A financial statement is a document that summarizes and differentiates the assets, liabilities, and net worth of a business. It covers all transactions from the last quarter as well to present day. With everything in one place, it’s easy to spot trends, plan for change, and make proper calculations. All this information according to Fintalent’s financial statements consultants makes up your company’s financial data. Some may even say it’s the lifeblood for any organization.

An income statement shows a firm’s revenues, expenses, gains and losses over a specified period of time. It summarizes the profit or loss position of a business at a specific point of time. It is also known as “profit and loss statement.” An income statement can be prepared for an accounting period (e.g., one year),a fiscal year ,or any custom period as specified by management.

An income statement is usually presented as a single-stage or a two-stage statement. A two-stage income statement groups each expense into either operating expenses or selling, general and administrative expenses. This is helpful for people who want to analyze the performance of each function in the business because it evaluates the different elements that help in generating revenue for the business.

A chief financial officer uses an income statement to evaluate a company’s performance and liquidity position over time, because it shows how well a firm performed during an accounting period (e.g., one year). An Income Statement is also used by owners and investors to assess earnings of stockholders before and after taxes are levied on them by government authorities.

A balance sheet is also called “statement of equity”. The balance sheet is prepared to show how much money is left over after all debts, expenses, and expenditures have been paid. This report is used by owners and investors to assess their financial position and to evaluate performance of stockholders before taxes levied on them by government authorities. Firms use this report to calculate the amount that must be retained as capital (reserves) or paid out as dividends.

This statement summarizes all long-term liabilities owed by a business. It is also known as “statement of financial condition”.
It is prepared in the form of a balance sheet and shows a firm’s total assets and liabilities at a given time. This statement provides a snapshot view of the current financial status of an organization. When comparing one period to another, it helps an organization identify and better manage its growth. It is also used by investors to assess earnings generated for stockholders before taxes are levied on them by government authorities.

An income statement can be prepared using either accrual or cash basis accounting. Under the accrual basis, expenses should be recognized when incurred whereas, in case of cash basis accounting, expenses should be recognized when cash is disbursed for payment during an accounting period.

A cost analysis is the process of breaking down fixed and variable costs into smaller components so that an individual cost can be identified and traced. The identification, analysis and traceability of all costs associated with the use of a specific resource are necessary to ensure that the total cost of using that resource can be determined.

Cost management goes beyond traditional budgeting by using cost systems to evaluate which activities contribute value to an organization, as opposed to just managing budgets within departments. Cost accounting is used in private and public sector organizations for purposes such as management accounting, financial accounting and reporting, business decision making, production planning and control, budgeting and policy formulation.

The main difference between cost accounting and management accounting is that cost is used to rank projects, while management only includes gains in value. Management accounting includes the planning, control, and other activities aimed at regulating the use of resources to achieve economic gain as a result of operations. Cost accounting is used by private sector organizations to plan, budget, manage operations, allocate resources and monitor financial results. Public sector organizations use cost accounting for government budgetary purposes. Cost accounting may include the analysis of costs for products or services sold by an organization as well as for internal administrative purposes (e.g., internal control).

The main difference between financial and cost accounting is that financial accounting provides information to investors, lenders and others outside of the business, who need data in order to assess the performance of a company. Financial accounting information is primarily used for external reporting and is based on Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). Cost accounting data is used primarily for internal purposes, such as decision making, performance evaluation, and pricing.

Cost accountants examine how much it costs an organization to produce or deliver something. The cost of producing or delivering an item or service depends on direct materials, direct labor, variable overhead expenses and fixed overhead expenses. The cost accountant can then determine what an organization should charge for a product or service so that it makes a profit. The cost accountant can also examine the cost of goods sold.

Cost accountants may also be responsible for determining how much inventory an organization should hold and how much it should order. The cost of holding too much inventory is referred to as carrying costs. These are costs incurred by holding extra inventory such as warehousing, insurance, and obsolescence. The cost of ordering too little inventory is called shortage costs. Shortage costs result from production delays and having to pay overtime or temporary workers to make up for lost time. As a result, cost accountants must be able to analyze information from different companies in order to determine the average production time for a product and the average rate at which products sell in the marketplace.

When it comes to obtaining a product or service, the cost accountant must look at the various costs involved so that they can determine how profitable it will be to sell that item. They may need to examine what suppliers charge for their materials and how much time it will take to deliver their goods. The cost of labor and overhead are other factors they must consider when preparing a cost analysis and determining an acceptable profit margin on an item. The cost accountant should also look at determining how much the organization can afford to pay out as salaries, rent, etc.
