The Black Box

The Black Box helps you breathe easily and saves you time when it comes to finance and accounting. Enable scalability within the business from the finance function with our Virtual CFOs.

Often, Finance and Accounting is the Achilles heel of many businesses- small and large.

We use award winning cloud-based accounting systems and integrations to Automation and machine learning is embedded in what we do to minimise admin tasks.

  • An effective, hassle free comprehensive finance function;

  • Intelligent, real-time insights into their business;

  • A VCFO guide for all CFO matters you might face.

    Lorien Gamaroff, CEO Bankymoon
