Our team of expert accountants can assist you with a wide range of tasks, including but not limited to, account receivables and payables, entering account transactions, monthly reconciliations, and producing financial statements. Outsourced accounting is a fundamental service which helps lay the foundation for your business and provides the necessary reporting to complete your annual tax return.

What Is Outsourced Accounting? 

Outsourced accounting involves hiring an outside company, or third party, to handle your business accounting and financial needs. 

Our outsourced accounting services include reconciliation of your bank and credit card transactions and creating financial statements, including your profit and loss statement, balance sheet, and general ledger. We are also happy to provide advice regarding sales tax, invoicing, payroll, and more. With our outsourced accounting service, you have a dedicated accountant with unlimited phone and email support, as well as access to a CPA who will review your books monthly to ensure your financials and reporting are 100% accurate. 

Why Outsource Accounting? 

There are multiple factors that might influence the decision to outsource your business accounting needs. If you do not have accounting infrastructure in place, or you are feeling overwhelmed, it may be time to switch up your current accounting system. Other reasons to outsource include wanting to grow your company and increase your focus on business development. 

Outsourced accounting can help your business implement better financial reporting and make sure your records are updated regularly. Through our outsourced accounting service, you can get tailored advice from our accountants who are tracking and reviewing your business activity on a regular basis.

How Does Outsourced Accounting Work? 

To begin our outsourced accounting services, we would start by reviewing your financials or bank statements to determine the level of service needed for your business and provide a price estimate. If you decide to proceed, from there we will gather your business information and get you set up in our system. 

The onboarding process includes a meeting with our CPA Accounting Manager to finalize the details of your engagement. From there, you will be assigned an accountant who will begin the necessary accounting needed to categorize your transactions and create monthly financials. Once complete, your financials are sent to our Accounting Manager for review, and then delivered to you and your team as requested.

When to Outsource Your Accounting 

If you feel like you are not sure what you are doing when it comes to your business financials, or if you are feeling overwhelmed, it’s a good idea to research outsourced accounting before it gets to be too much to handle. 

Accurate accounting and financial records are essential to the health and well-being of your business. As your business grows, you may find it harder to keep up with your financials as revenue increases and you begin to hire more employees. Using an outsourced accounting service is a great way to level-up your accounting system without the headache of hiring an in-house accountant. 

How to Outsource Accounting Services 

So, you’ve decided that outsourcing accounting services is right—but not sure where to begin? Start by analyzing the ways in which you may need assistance by identifying your needs. Once you have an idea of what you need, it makes it easier to research what type of accounting service is best for you. Review your budget to determine what you are willing to pay for this service. From there, reach out to us and we will guide you through the next steps needed to commence the outsourced accounting process.

Is It Cheaper to Outsource Accounting? 

It is typically more cost effective to hire a firm to outsource your accounting. It will reduce your overhead costs, as you will not need to hire and train a full-time accountant or create an in-house accounting department. 

Outsourcing your accounting will ultimately save you both time and money by ensuring that your accounting and financials are correct from the get-go. This is especially important if your business ever happens to come under audit. We also receive wholesale discounts on accounting software, which we then pass down to you as our client.

Our accountants will guarantee that your financials are reported correctly, and that you are taking advantage of all potential tax breaks and deductions, thus saving you even more in the long run.
