Having accurate and updated financial information is a key component of successful business operations.
Yet, most businesses experience a point in their growth phase where they are unable to manage accounting on their own. The management needs to focus more on driving sales and operations in order to keep the business going.
At the end of the day, people start up companies to do business, not crunch numbers. Outsourcing is a great solution to this problem that has quite a few benefits over keeping an in house accounting team.
Eliminate loss of Business due to Burden
By outsourcing your accounting to a professional accounting service, you get access to a team of highly-qualified and experienced professionals taking care of the financial record keeping aspect. This frees up time and resource and allows you to work on business aspects that matter to you the most.
Not having to worry about payroll, bookkeeping and reporting and simply going through the reports generated by the business at the end of the month is a lot easier.
Outsourcing accounting means you no longer have to pay a full time accountant for overheads, sick leaves, vacation leaves, training or any other department expenses.
You only have to pay the accounting company for the work that needs to be done. This means you will have financial resources to use on other parts of your business.
With an in-house accountant, you never know when they would want to leave for another company—helping a new accountant get familiar with your organization’s finances can be a problem. Professional accounting services, by virtue of the nature of their business, keep a steady team of experts on hand and therefore you will never have to face these issues.
Small to medium businesses that use in house accountants often have to deal with delays, errors and review requirements. This can be frustrating at times but having a professional company by your side cuts out all chances of such issues. These companies usually have experts with years of experience on their teams and this equips you with an unparalleled, competitive edge.
Tax and Audit Fees Savings
Many professional firms charge by the hour for tax and audit services simply because they have to wade through a lot of incomplete information in order to get their task done. It is better to have per hour costing rather than a fixed cost in this scenario. Getting your bookkeeping in order by using outsourcing accounting will result in cost savings on these services as most of the work will already be done for them.
Safety in Expansion
For large companies thinking to expand to foreign territories it can be a hassle to have their employees trained in the foreign country’s applicable accounting standards. Minimize money and time spent on this by outsourcing and focus on your expansion projects.
As you can see there are many good reasons as to why outsourcing accounting is a wise idea. If you’re starting a business in China and need a service to help you maneuver the Chinese Accounting Standards
