Whether you’re a farmer in Manitoba, a chair manufacturer in Ontario or own a tutoring company in Quebec, once your business starts to gain momentum your company must find an effective way to manage its books. Some businesses hire an in-house accountant while others, usually new businesses or small to medium sized businesses, find a qualified and reliable local bookkeeping service they can trust to outsource their financial records.

For companies who outsource their bookkeeping, the results typically means saving time and money while obtaining access to premium bookkeeping services and practical advice regarding important financial decisions which carry tax implications and in many ways, help minimize the risks typically involved with relying on in-house staff. Here’s a closer look at the specific advantages outsourcing may offer are:

FINANCIAL SAVINGS

Outsourcing work to a specialized bookkeeping services provider, rather than hiring a full-time employee, will save you money. When outsourcing, you can steer clear of typical employee expenses like benefits, insurance, payroll taxes, maternity leave, unemployment taxes and holiday time. You don’t have to provide workspace, office furniture, computers or software. Even with the up-front costs involved in outsourcing, the overall financial savings are still significant.

TIME SAVINGS

Are you currently doing the bookkeeping yourself? If you are, perhaps a better use of your time might be spent focusing on the core of your business, increasing sales, overseeing job quality and keeping customers happy.

FOCUSED EFFORT

It can be extremely difficult for a bookkeeper to focus on his/her job around the controlled chaos of a business. By removing them from the site it helps you spend more time primarily concentrating on your business.

EXPERT SERVICES

Third-party bookkeeping service providers specialize in the work they do which makes them a perfect resource for completing projects. This means when you go to an established and experienced bookkeeping service, you can trust that your accounting will be handled well.

Service providers face higher liability than in-house staff which makes them less risky for your business. They are more likely to complete their obligations because they have more to lose if they don’t. In addition, dealing with the contracts or agreements of outside providers may be simpler than hiring employees, negotiating salaries, employee management and other human resource issues.

As companies are increasingly mobile, speed is essential, and security is key and having secure access to your accounting records wherever you are is more important than ever. Establishing a cloud-based accounting portal for your books offers considerable benefits over traditional workstation-based accounting infrastructures and delivers greater value by providing real-time information, insight and guidance to enable you to make decisions based on accurate information 24/7. Cloud based accounting supports this objective by ensuring that both the outsourced bookkeepers and you are working with the most up-to-date information without the hassle of transferring files back and forth and without having to keep software up to date. The best systems create nightly backups ‘In the Cloud’ and keep organized records and books for years ensuring that if the CRA ever does come knocking for an audit, you’ll be more than prepared for them. Teaming Cloud Accounting Services with Outsourced Bookkeeping Services makes for the perfect accounting solution for most small to medium sized businesses.

Finally, bear in mind that outsourcing your bookkeeping allows you to expand or cutback seamlessly. Whether you’re looking to grow your business or you have to cut down on spending during a slowdown in the economy, having a reliable and flexible team available providing you with different plans and options will ensure you achieve your accounting obligations. Outsourcing your bookkeeping services provides the flexibility that in-house bookkeepers simply can’t provide.
