At Keeping Your Balance, we have a keen sense of how outsourced accounting or bookkeeping services can greatly enhance your business. We’re also aware that not every client we speak to is a good candidate for outsourced services. When we chat with you, we will help assess your accounting and bookkeeping processes to help determine if you’re a good fit. As we are a believer in custom work, we never adapt a one-size-fits-all mentality. If you’re considering an outsourced solution, here are some things to keep in mind to help you decide if this is the right fit for your your business model.
Technology is part of your business.
Whether technology is ingrained in your business or you’re open to checking out how technology can improve your business, having a flexible mindset will help with any outsourced services you incorporate. Some common outsourced services include online bookkeeping services or online accounting services, HR, taxes, and marketing. As you move forward with leveraging technology throughout your departments, and accept this method of building your business, you will have a higher chance of having a positive outsourcing experience.
Your business is expanding beyond early stage growth.
If your business is growing quickly beyond its initial stages, you may find you need to scale your resources along with it. Unless you have internal resources to handle the growth, hiring new employees is a costly and lengthy process. Developing employees is an immense investment. Many startups and small businesses, including restaurants and professional services, with annual revenue at $500,000 or more, find that outsourcing certain functions serves them better. One huge benefit is that you will gain the knowledge and expertise of a trained professional or team immediately without risking your time and personnel infrastructure.
You want to fix and update your business’ processes.
If you are considering new business processes or want to experiment with new software or systems, unless you’re confident with your own internal team’s ability, it may be quite a feat to manage this by yourself. It would be time consuming to learn and compare all the various options, along with figuring out how to integrate third party services without external help. However, outsourced services often are experienced with making recommendations and overhauling processes. If you don’t want to stress about doing it alone, an outsourced provider may be what you need.
