Save 20-30% by going for Outsourced Accounting Services
The basic reason behind popularity of outsourcing is simple – it helps you cut costs by over 20%-30%, save time, and simply gets peripheral functions out of your hair! For a small business, just the thought of outsourcing their financials is a tough step to take.
We have seen several such instances where hesitation to outsource has stopped the growth mid-way.
Let’s get you through some basic points to consider before outsourcing your accounting services. This blog can also serve as a basic research reference point for small businesses who are looking to hire outsourced accounting services firms for their operations.
Why Should you use Outsourced Accounting Services?
Free up your time from accounting
No matter how much you prioritize your to-do lists and tasks, a 24-hour work day never seems enough. A persistent thought among entrepreneurs and leaders of large teams is that they always feel the day is not complete, something or the other was left out. In such a scenario, accounting only feels like an overhead for a small firm. You want to get it out of the way, but you cannot hurry because if accounting not managed properly can boomerang back to you in the form of additional costs and penalties.
Given the financial and tax implications, it just cannot be performed with a lackluster approach; accuracy forms an inherent and unspoken requirement for accounting. A trusted outsourced accounting services partner frees up a huge chunk of your time, and lets you focus on other important functions.
You can use the freed up time for hiring field sales people or attend events to make new contacts. Basically, you can devote the time for growth-related activities rather than spending hours and days on accounting services which are essentially nothing more than peripheral functions.
Don’t take chances with your money
Chances of an internal person manipulating data are high; that person has intent. When you are working with an external agency, you are creating a layer of abstraction – thereby reducing the personnel risk factor to a minimum. Another aspect of security is how secure are your accounting firm’s databases. Password protection is the most basic form of security, the accounting firm should implement strict checks and gates at various data entry/exit points in their internal control systems. The outsourced accounting services firm you choose should be able to confidently answer any questions that you ask about their database security.
Startups shouldn’t have to go hunting for multiple outsourced accounting services
It is an age-old saying – “Always read the fine print”. Chances are you have been running your business for 1-2 years and have fairly good idea about what services you require. If you don’t have a clear picture of what services you require, you may even hire an independent consultant for a one-time accounting need analysis of your operations. When hiring outsourced accounting services agency, study the services carefully.
It is highly important to ask the right questions to evaluate the services. No marketing brochure tells you the flaws; such brochures are inherently biased towards the meeting the objectives of the firm.
The accounting firm you choose should be well exposed to multiple accounting software
Experience always matters – especially in case of accounting services since you are dealing with laws of the country you do your business in. Not all the companies use same accounting software, some of them may be used to a certain bookkeeping software or sometimes we may see a whole industry clients leaning towards a certain tax application due to better integration with that industry’s laws. For an accounting firm, with experience comes the exposure to different accounting programs used by different types of clients. Such a partner is more reliable than others and will be capable to help you navigate through most problems down the road.
