10 reasons to consider outsourcing your bookkeeping

  1. 1. 10 Reasons to Consider OutsourcingYour Bookkeeping
  2. 2.  CostSavingsbyOutsourcing o Expect to see a small cost savings by outsourcing, but don’t make this the primary goal. o Primary motivation for outsourcing should be getting better financial reporting and advice. One key piece of advice now could save you tens of thousands of dollars later.
  3. 3.  Managelessstaff o Consider hiring as many people as you can manage to carry out revenue-generating tasks and outsourcing other functions, including bookkeeping. o A professional bookkeeping company will shoulder the responsibility of replacing bookkeepers who leave and conduct necessary training.
  4. 4.  Ownless o Apart from the upfront cost of purchase, troubleshooting these systems will add expense and require the business to learn new non-essential competencies. Outsource bookkeeping and you outsource ownership. o You save more than salary by outsourcing. Factor in employer taxes, health insurance, travel insurance, worker’s compensation, vacation pay and retirement benefits.
  5. 5.  Increaseeffectiveness o Counting money won’t make more money. If you have spare time to build in-house accounting teams, inject it into the areas of the business which make money like your sales team. Outsourcing is not a perfect system, but compared to the alternatives its far more effective.
  6. 6.  Maintainyourpassion o There is nothing worse than an unmotivated leader to bring down the morale of the whole crew. o If you are still doing the books each month, stop today. Maintain your passion and do what you love most. You will excel at what you love most and are more likely to remain motivated.
  7. 7.  Valuecreation o To engaging an outsourced bookkeeper, physically restrict the number of hours you are exposed to bookkeeping per month. For most services businesses, one or two days per month is adequate. Tasks take as long as the time allotted to them. A full-time bookkeeper will occupy part of your day, every day. Outsource and instead focus adding value to your client’s business.
  8. 8.  Profit-per-square-foot o Rent constitutes one of the largest fixed costs for businesses. You want to maximize every dollar of this expense item and ensure the space is occupied by sales teams or producers who directly contribute revenue.
  9. 9.  KeepPrivacy o You may want to keep the books confidential. One of the most outsourced financial functions is payroll. This is because payroll is complicated and many firms do not want to share salary details with internal stakeholders. By outsourcing bookkeeping, the accounts are one step removed from your staff.
  10. 10.  Unbiasedadvice o In times of financial crisis, tough decisions need to be made. An outsourced bookkeeper will be more impartial than an in-house person, and will probably give you unbiased advice. Suppliers are also easier to let go of than full-time staff.
  11. 11.  Improvedcontrol o Despite how it may appear, an outsourced bookkeeping company should provide you more control. o When choosing a bookkeeping company, look for value in their advice and practices.
