Work comes in peaks and flows – and sometimes there is just way too much work for a CPA to cope with; bookkeeping, payroll, accounting and processing tax returns consume lots of time and energy on a daily basis. So instead of focusing on making business growth plans, the CPA ends up doing menial and (frequently) lower revenue tasks.
However, there is a solution to this problem: outsourcing. An expert team of accountants can make a CPA’s workflow smoother and cost-effective by managing all routine tasks in hand.
Contrary to popular belief, outsourcing is straightforward and of course, tried and tested. Here are 6 reasons for why you should give it a shot:
Reassigning activities such as bookkeeping, statutory accounts, management accounts and taxation to an outsourcing firm lowers in-house costs by 40-50%. This helps you focus on core competencies to expand your business.
Outsourcing lets you tighten your focus on strategic priorities, improve efficiencies, enhance reporting, strengthen your governance capabilities, develop better management controls and introduce new opportunities for continuous improvement.
If you want to address the complexities of legislation that require you to increase the timeliness, accuracy, integrity and transparency of your financial reporting, then outsourcing routine jobs is a wise decision.
Since outsourcing takes care of the simple but extensive tasks, you can easily allot resources to access leading-edge technology and best practices available – all to manage the finance and accounting functions effectively and efficiently.
You can see that the business landscape is in a state of constant flux with new demands made by customers and investors every day. This needs you to evolve your strategies and introduce new products and services. Outsourcing your data-intensive, F&A functions gives you the time to do so.
Recruiting and retaining staff is a main concern for most accounting firms. With outsourcing, you can be assured of all tasks being completed on time whether or not you have the manpower to do so. You may soon realize you don't need to replace the key worker who left after all.
So when you would rather focus on core issues than worry about finishing routine tasks, why are you so skeptical about “outsourcing”?
