Managing a business is quite demanding and even more so when it is a startup in its early days. Along with working consistently to improve the products or services on offer, you still can’t afford to neglect the other non-administrative aspects of day-to-day management.

Like HR services. Along with taking care of bookkeeping and payroll, you’d need to be on top of your game to ensure you aren’t consciously flouting government rules and regulations. You definitely don’t want to be slapped with brutal interests and penalties, do you?


Payroll calculations, on the other hand, may prove challenging. Different states have different laws but you’ll still need to get your account and finances in order. Nowadays, many startups, as well as established corporations, are turning towards outsourcing firms for their accounting and HR needs.

Does outsourcing make any sense in this case? Does it offer any kind of advantage as a startup? All of these and many more would be answered in this guide. As a startup, outsourcing your accounting and payroll services may turn out to be a very great idea. Below, we’ll explain the many reasons why it may benefit you as a startup in the early days.

Did you know that a back office support employee can cost a startup or small to mid-size business upwards of $60,000 each year? While that figure may vary, this is a lot of money to fill a role that doesn’t necessarily require a full-time salaried position — not to mention the benefits that go along with that salary, resources necessary to train them, equipment to help them do their job, and so forth.

Here’s another important question. Did you know you could be getting the same amount of support that a full-time employee provides by outsourcing to a remote accounting or bookkeeping partner… at a fraction of the cost?

For Agencies

Every company faces employee turnover at one point or another. But you might not recognize how much it costs your company every time an employee leaves. Between offboarding, filling the gap, hiring a replacement, and training them, you could be facing tens of thousands of dollars in employee turnover costs. And high costs in turnover mean fewer funds to help your business grow.

According to one study from Employee Benefit News, it costs 33% of an employee’s salary to hire their replacement. So, if an employee makes $45,000 per year, your company could face $15,000 or more in employee turnover costs. That’s money many businesses can’t afford to throw away.

Explore these four different areas associated with employee turnover, and learn how each one costs your company money.
