Many SMEs know that running their own business is time-consuming but ensuring that your accounts are ready by the deadlines is often the last thing that sole traders and company directors will do.
Not every business owner understands their financials and having someone you can talk to and explain how to apply best practice, will make the task of managing your business much easier. The more you learn about your financials, the better; rather than struggling to understand your margins on every job/client, decipher what is driving your bottom lines and not knowing your debt-equity to ratio can often kill your profits.
If you have one person in the office managing your books, you have to manage that person, and how do you ensure they are proficient, and their knowledge is up-to-date? One of the main advantages of outsourcing your accounts is that you have a team of professionals and experienced bookkeepers available when you need them. You will have experienced people undertaking those important tasks like payroll, invoicing, and credit control to ensure accurate information and recommendations are received in a timely manner.
Outsourcing your accounts department can be very cost-effective as well as a time-saver. If you are the CEO, it will allow you time to generate more revenue rather than worrying about the backend office functions. It is definitely a smarter way of working for many small companies.
Outsourcing also gives you flexibility. When the economy is good, it’s great to run a full-time team, but what happens to the team if you lose a large client? Outsourcing provides the opportunity to scale when you need to without adding people to the payroll. In challenging times, it can make your business leaner and more agile.
With the right planning, you can avoid using valuable resources, reduce your wage bills, and you reduce overheads for full or part-time employees. You will pay for what you need – when you need it with the appropriate level of professional bookkeeping, payroll and accounting services required for business success.
