    • Can I hire finance experts in less than 48 hours through Toptal?

      Depending on availability and how fast you can progress, you could start working with a finance expert within 48 hours of signing up. Start now.

    • What is the no-risk trial period for Toptal finance experts?

      We make sure that each engagement between you and your finance expert begins with a trial period of up to two weeks. This means that you have time to confirm the engagement will be successful. If you’re completely satisfied with the results, we’ll bill you for the time and continue the engagement for as long as you’d like. If you’re not completely satisfied, you won’t be billed. From there, we can either part ways, or we can provide you with another expert who may be a better fit and with whom we will begin a second, no-risk trial. Start now.
