Accounting services – Do What You do and Let the Professionals do the Bookkeeping
One of the keys to running a successful business is learning what you can let go of. Otherwise, involving yourself in every facet of it can make you less productive and less efficient on more crucial areas of your business. One of the processes which you can delegate to professionals is the bookkeeping. In fact, many companies in the U.S and across the world have been leveraging the expertise of professional CPAs to streamline their accounting processes.
According to Deloitte’s 2016 Global Outsourcing and Insourcing Survey, finance and accounting services outsourcing will be the top growth industry over the next few years. Currently, 42% of respondents are outsourcing basic transactional financial and accounting (F&A) processes such as Accounts Payable and Payroll, as well as non-transactional functions such as financial analysis to accounting service providers.
While considered as a non-core task, a high-quality bookkeeping service can provide businesses like yours with better control over its cash flow, and in so doing help you make better decisions. Here’s how an accounting professional can help your business grow today.
- Risk Sharing
One of the primary reasons why businesses seek the help of a professional CPA is to share risk associated with bookkeeping. Hiring an outsourced accounting service provider means the product/ output, such as the general ledger, will be delivered without errors and in a timely manner.
Moreover, the business need not be concerned with the risks associated with in-house bookkeeping personnel becoming sick before important deadlines, or when the internal accounting system or computer system fails at inappropriate times.
- Avoid Costly Errors
Hiring and keeping in-house accounting experts to supervise the bookkeeping function and to check for errors is a time-consuming and expensive process. An outsourced accounting professional, on the other hand, allow businesses to leverage their expertise on multiple levels of review built into the bookkeeping process, allowing them to correct any errors on time before the audit season.
- Remain Compliant to Standard Accounting Practices and Regulations
Businesses can also depend on detailed and up-to-date knowledge of a professional accountant on various accounting principles and complex tax regulations, which is more of a necessity than an option these days. Overall, having their specialized knowledge will result in improved regulatory compliance and better reputation of the business in the industry
- Leverage New Accounting Technology Without the High Investment Cost
Another advantage of outsourced accounting services is that it allows small- and medium-sized businesses to keep up with advanced accounting software cloud-based systems without the need to actually invest in these platforms. This cost-benefit is crucial to remain compliant, compared to the costs and risks of using old technology. Moreover, this cost-saving could be even higher since the company doesn’t have to upgrade or maintain their own system.
Equipped with advanced hardware and software, accounting service providers can help companies of all sizes to create highly personalized and detailed reports crucial to making important financial decisions.
- Transparent Process
Lack of transparency is what keeps most companies from outsourcing their bookkeeping process to an outside service provider. Because this line of work involves a wealth of confidential financial information, it is only important to choose the right accounting service provider that empowers its client to have full command of their accounting processes.
