About CAFRonline

CAFR Online is a web application for local governments to compile annual financial reports. It has all of the features of a word processor, but also allows the client to access financial statements compiled by a database. CAFR Online is used in a collaborative environment. You provide the data. Thales Consulting compiles the financial reports. You review the results, post adjusting entries, and edit the narrative. You maintain complete control–we just make the process easier to manage.
