Benefits of Outsourcing

Outsourcing of financial accounting services have tremendous advantages for all types and size of businesses.

In brief, some of the key benefits of outsourcing include:

“As a Service” Model
More and more, many businesses are starting to book things like IT, accounting, HR, payroll, benefits coordination, etc. as services, this is because it provides financial and planning flexibility.

Think of it like this – rather than allocating certain assets, personnel, etc. to a given project or task, internal assets or an outsourced company exist as a service element. It can then be assigned, booked to costs, or else managed for a given project, job, task, or responsibility as needed. This helps with a number of accounting aspects and provides more accurate visibility to the business as to where expenses and resources are involved. It also provides a number of financial benefits – several Fortune 500s have managed to shave off millions in expenses simply by re-arranging the way they manage, record, assign and track these kinds of departments and business functions.

Headcount and Cost Savings
In many businesses, headcount is a major area of concern. Projecting workload to justify additional employees can be difficult. Further, it can be expensive to hire additional employees, especially in case of inconsistent workload. Health and other benefits, insurance, and the requisite infrastructure, space, IT, and other resources for each individual staff member can add up quickly. Outsourcing of financial accounting eliminates that overhead, as well as the unused employee time/downtime. You only pay for our services, to the extent you consume. For most businesses, this generates big savings compared to having one or more people on staff to handle the workload that otherwise can be outsourced to us.
