Outsourcing Accounting Functions Benefits Businesses
Bracknell, UK – March 2020 – According to Transcosmos, 59 % of the companies that outsource reduce their operating costs Mark Pereira of MW Accounting Services explains why businesses should outsource their accounting services:
“My number one piece of advice to any business owner is to delegate everything you don’t need to do. Focus your efforts on the stuff you can’t yet hand over. Then one day you’ll be able to hand over the lot, getting your just rewards for all that hard work.
A great starting point in this process is to outsource your bookkeeping. Cloud-based software has made this easier to do than ever before. It just so happens that we can take care of this for you.”

There are many benefits to outsourcing internal accounting functions. When an organisation initially decides there is a need for internal accounting functions, they may not be able to justify full-time staffing. Using the outsourcing option provides access to consultants with expertise in a variety of areas and right-size staffing based upon the accounting needs of the organisation. Thus, one of the key benefits of outsourcing is to fill gaps in areas of technical expertise. Other organisations may prefer to use external firms to handle their internal accounting functions due to a shortage of certified internal accountants.
Some businesses may require their chief accounting executive to wear multiple hats, resulting in backlog issues. However, these businesses can have a bookkeeper, an accounting manager, a controller, and an oversight CFO for a reasonable cost. If you wanted those experts in-house, you’d have to hire three or four individuals, which is very costly. So, outsourcing is helpful because it cuts down on the cost and time that it would take for the client to hire a bookkeeper and then find a CPA who has auditing experience. Also, outsourcing accounting services expose a firm to the latest trends and best practices in the industry.
According to MW Accounting Services, “a business that relies on one person isn’t really a business at all.”
