I've worked as a head of finance for many years now. This has given me experience in both accounts production (management accounts, financial accounts and taxes) and also the higher level strategic planning of these companies. Whilst I enjoy the management accounts and stats production, tax, etc. I also like the variety and challenge of having the strategic planning and financial modelling aspects of these roles.
I'm thinking about setting up my own practice and wanted to get people's experiences of what sort of tasks they undertake in their practice. Is it possible to find the mix of the above in the practice world or do you find that when companies are big enough to need financial modelling, they generally have their own internal finance function?
