“If someone can do it better, faster, or cheaper, let him… do it!”

Quote credit: Thomas G. Miller author of “It’s Your Business: So What Are You Going to Do About It?

Have you ever considered outsourcing your accounting and financial tasks? You are not alone. According to Forbes, finance and accounting was one of the first business processes that companies outsourced. Furthermore, outsourcing is NOT limited to large corporations. Small to medium-sized businesses are outsourcing their financial and accounting processes and reaping great benefits.

Why outsource?

  1. Outsourcing your accounting processes will give you more time to focus on your core business.
  2. Outsourcing your accounting and financial projects will give you peace of mind. When you work with a trusted accounting firm, you can rest easy knowing that experts are handling your accounting and finance related processes. [It goes without saying you’ll want to choose that “trusted accounting firm” wisely. Selecting a partner solely based on price could create more problems than it solves, but that’s an entirely different blog!]
  3. Outsourcing your accounting can help reduce your overhead costs. Instead of hiring an employee or in-house accounting staff to work full time, you can pay for only what you need. Today, you might need a bookkeeper’s services, but tomorrow a CPA. The right accounting and finance partner will have a well-versed team ready to serve your needs at different levels.

But it’s MY business, I don’t want to lose control!

You may fear losing control when hiring an outside firm, but this isn’t the case. A qualified accounting team will use advanced accounting software to provide detailed and clear metrics that you wouldn’t get in-house. They will help you answer questions like, “Was that advertising campaign profitable? Can we afford a second location?” as well as providing insights you never even knew you were missing.

What’s the bottom line?

Outsourcing your accounting and financial tasks can allow your business to be more efficient and to save money overall – all while you enjoy your own clients and family more.
