Benefits of Outsourcing Bookkeeping Services

Benefits of Outsourcing Bookkeeping Services

As the business world becomes more competitive and everyone seeks efficient operations in terms of time and money, the practice of Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) becomes more and more popular. Companies are outsourcing payroll distributions that will allow them to reduce costs, tax obligations and better use their time, focusing on the business's more strategic aspects. Much of this outsourcing relates to the accounting activities of an organization.

Popular with most small businesses and start-ups, outsourced bookkeeping includes a range of services, from transaction labeling, receipt recording, customer accounting, accounts payable, financial reporting to management accounting, etc. 

Some of the benefits of outsourcing include but not limited to

Good tax management: Outsourcing the bookkeeping service would offer vital tax advantages. Accountants are trained in tax regulations and know how to save money through tax deductions and guide you properly on how to use your money. They also file error-free tax returns, so you don't have to pay fines. Among the many other benefits of outsourcing, simplified tax preparation and full compliance will relieve unnecessary stress. Instead of struggling to sort your numbers, a certified CPA will help you prepare on time for tax season. Ultimately, by outsourcing your bookkeeping operations, you save money by paying a part-time or full-time salary and benefits to an employee. Also, you save on lost productivity. The best-outsourced bookkeeping services can work remotely as virtual bookkeepers. They will have the desire and ability to go "on location" and the flexibility to work with various software. Because your business experiences seasonal or market changes, the right bookkeeping service company can meet your needs. Also, bookkeeping outsourcing helps your business grow faster and stronger. Sustainable accounting and bookkeeping outsourcing occur for one main reason: to help maximize your return to your core.

Decision and automation support system

Bookkeeping firms that provide third-party accounting services often use accounting programs such as Quickbooks, Sage, and other ERPs that eliminate accounting inaccuracies through Excel. This technology use also provides access to real-time information about the company's finances and generates information for the organization's management team that would support their decision-making.

Neutral performance measurement

An organization needs to identify its high and low-performance units to increase efficiency and improve operation. Third-party management bookkeeping service can provide more accurate and unbiased reports and observations on these performance reviews than an internal management accounting team.

Outsourcing of business processes, such as bookkeeping outsourcing services, has empowered business owners and professionals to do what they do best. Accountants provide accounting services to companies in various industries. Marketers provide marketing services to different brands; logistics companies provide supply chain support for businesses, while entrepreneurs focus on scaling up and business development.

Efficiency over time

During scaling or expanding a business, the management team needs to focus on its goals and implement strategies in line with its vision. With the bookkeeping outsourced to an accounting firm, the management team would spend less time worrying about tasks such as bookkeeping and transactions and receiving financial advisory services in their operations. This would allow them to make more informed decisions and achieve their goals. A business whose debts and loans are outsourced would also save considerable time without dealing with service providers or financial institutions.


When you hire the services of a bookkeeper or a team for your business, it often involves training and counseling. On the other hand, when you use an outsourced bookkeeping service, accountants are appointed, trained, and dedicated to the relevant functions. Companies generally have a diverse portfolio of clients from a variety of industries. This gives your accounting team members the knowledge and experience of solving real-world problems that will benefit your business when needed. They will be able to provide advice based on their previous experience in dealing with similar situations.

Cost efficiency

Bookkeeping outsourcing activities, like other business process outsourcing (BPO) services, have both short-term (income statement) and long-term (balance sheet) financial benefits for a business. While you are certainly saving on salary expenses each month by paying hourly rates based on breakdowns, rather than paying full-time salaries to employees, you are also saving on long-term pension fund liabilities: staff, tips, and other benefits. A smaller workforce also translates into lower spending on utilities.

Most small businesses end up paying more taxes than they should. Engaging the services of an accountant/bookkeeper such as JAMES FINANCIAL SERVICES, INC. would certainly allow them to reduce their tax obligations.
