A financial controller can also be called a financial manager. These employees are in charge of making sure that the company they work for is financially sound. They can achieve this goal by having a system in place that forecasts the financial future of the company as well as analysing the monthly costs of the company to see where savings can be effected. Basically a financial controller assumes the same role in a company as the budget-keeper of a family home. If the budget is good and well planned, the outlook of the family's future will be good. It is no different in business.
It is also the financial controller's responsibility to keep the accounting books / financial books of the business up to date and report any issues to the managing director/owner of the company immediately. Sometimes a certain degree of knowledge of the law regarding finances is indispensable in the career of a financial controller.
