  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

In 2018, Finance directors should concentrate on long term objective realisation, tight controls over cash and processes as well as ensuring the business delivers a healthy profit. Do you have anyone in your business focusing on these issues?

What is QR3

We find the best part-time FD for your business – nationwide. You get them for a fraction of the normal cost.


A great FD need not cost the earth. In fact, they add value. Priced by the day, you pay no more and no less than your business needs.

50% Discount

We’ll create a custom report, making recommendations for how you can, reduce costs, improve productivity and increase profits – guaranteed!


Give your business the best chance of survival by making QR3 your financial partner. From creating a business plan, applying for grants and loans, monitoring your profits and cashflow and building robust financial controls and processes. We’ll add value quickly.


Growing a sustainable business means its MD should be concentrating on development and building profitable sales. Partnering with a part-time finance director allows you to “let go” of the financial day to day sooner rather than later, freeing you up to grow your business.


Its time to sell. Because you want to reinvest or retire. Do this right and you’ll sell for the right amount. Do this wrong and it will cost you, both in terms of selling price and transaction costs. Pull in an FD who’s been there and done it before to optimise your business sale process.

We Provide Coaching and Support

Being a Managing Director in an SME is one of the loneliest jobs on earth – I know because I’ve been there. Having a coach helps, because you can discuss ideas and sort out profitable opportunities from the dead ducks before you invest too much time and energy in them. You can have a 1 to 1 coach – and that might suit you. Or, why not join a local group of like minded MDs? No more than 10 in a group, its less costly and you gain from each others’ experiences.
