The benefits of outsourcing
As an entrepreneur or small business owner, you often find yourself not being able to get to everything that you need to do. Many times, this occurs on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. It is not necessarily a bad thing; however it can be problematic if you never get to something that is really important.
Many entrepreneurs spend a lot of their time focussing on things they are not good at or simply do not enjoy. An example of an area that many entrepreneurs dislike and spend a lot of time on, is their accounting. Either they do it themselves or they hire someone to work in their businesses to do this.
Have you considered that perhaps there’s another way for you to ensure that your books are up to date, without you hiring an extra employee or doing it yourself? A way to do that is to outsource your accounting function.
Why outsource your accounting function?
1. Save money
When you outsource, you are (many times) getting expertise for a fraction of the cost of hiring an employee. Also, if you are doing it yourself, have you considered what else you could be doing during that time? Perhaps you could have put a proposal together for a new client or worked on improving your product.
You have the option of choosing when you want to use an accounting firm and when you don’t. Depending on the stage of your business, you might prefer this.
When you are starting out, you might only need a few hours of bookkeeping. However, as your business grows, you might find that you need a few days every month to get everything in order. An Accounting firm can make extra resources available to you as your business grows and can scale back if you need less resources.
4. Access to expertise
When you work with an Accounting firm, they will have the expertise you need. When a challenging situation arises, you will be able to tap into their expertise instead of working through it on your own.
