Q: Can FamCo take over my company’s financing function or take over our filing obligations in bankruptcy, so that I can concentrate on the business?

A: FamCo can come by anytime. Since we are a results-based company and offer as much service as it takes to do the job, we want to know constantly how things are going with our customers. Often, the best way to know this is via face-to-face meetings.

Q: Can FamCo provide me financial reports on a regular basis?

A: Yes. We can email them, send them in the mail or visit you in person to go over your company’s financial results and records. This last choice is highly recommended.
