When speaking about outsourcing, founders have it tough…
As a founder initially you have to wear different hats, you have to be a jack of all trades to keep your bootstrapped startup from burning unnecessary cash. But there comes a time in your venture when you as a founder get overwhelmed by the sheer number of things you have on your plate at a given moment. This is the period when you have to take some time out to access the things that are not your core competence, things that can be outsourced, or professional help be sought. In all likelihood, Accountancy or Bookkeeping is one such area which eats up most of the time.
By hiring a Bookkeeping firm as your virtual Bookkeeping partner you get the benefits and expertise of professionals without having to bear the cost and without having to go through the hassle of hiring and managing an in-house team. These professionals can help you clear up financial activities off your plate and free up your time, time which can be better put to use.
Irrespective of size or your business your bookkeeping partners can help you tidy up your accounts and help to make sure all the transactions are recorded correctly. Tasks that your bookkeeping partner can help you with are:
- Handling customer and supplier billing and invoices.
- Paying your bills
- Payroll processing and reconciliation.
- Bookkeeping and reconciliation
- Filing taxes and financial planning
- Industry-specific accounting tasks.
Out of the many advantages, you get by outsourcing your bookkeeping here are a few which I feel are most significant for your business.
Free up your budget
Regardless of the size of your company, managing an in-house team for Bookkeeping can be very expensive. With an in-house team, you have to incur costs for insurance, bonuses, vacations, training, etc. over and above the apparent costs like wages and salaries. For many businesses especially startups and small businesses allocating so much of their budget to such activities is not a financially prudent thing to do.
Outsourcing your Bookkeeping activities to partners like us does come with lots of advantages, you get access to experienced and well-trained professionals for as low as 7$/hour which is a fraction of the cost you would spend compared to having a full-fledged in-house team.
Over time your outsourcing accounting partner will help you streamline your organization’s processes wrt to accounting and bookkeeping. With these systems and best practices in place, you can have a real-time view of the financial status of your business. With added visibility to your finances, you can take decisions proactively instead of reactively looking back at the implications of your actions.
With the help of online accounting platforms, you can get instant access to all the information which makes sharing of information easy with the authorities and stakeholders as and when required.
Your accounting partners are not involved in your routine business activities and hence they have a different approach and fresh eyes to look at things. This approach can help you point out things that may seem obvious to your eye. These professionals do not hold any bias and thus can provide an objective point of view. You can use these insights in accessing your finances to find out any inconsistencies.
Before you venture out to scout for the right bookkeeping partner make sure to think about all the challenges and bottlenecks you wish to overcome and the results you are expecting out of your Bookkeeping partner. When the expectations and expected outcomes are well thought out you will be in a position to ask precise questions and ultimately onboard a partner that will truly be an ideal partner for your business.
