Choosing an Outsourced Bookkeeping Company - Nearshoring and Offshoring Outsourcing Ideas
Businesses that are run unsystematically do not attain their full growth potential. Even if a business owner is a true entrepreneur he or she cannot do well without proper bookkeeping habits. A bookkeeper should be employed to capture daily transactions in all areas of a business. Today organizations prefer to use an outsourced bookkeeping company rather than to recruit a permanent employee. The term outsourcing in the field of business refers to an act of assigning work to a contractor that is not employed or associated to an organization.
An outsourced bookkeeping company can be based very far away or near its clients. The term nearshoring is used to refer to the technique of outsourcing work or projects to service providers that are based in close proximity to its clients.
Offshoring is the term used to refer to a technique of delegating any jobs to a service provider located in a very remote location. If one lives in the U.S, for instance, he or she may decide to hand over accounting work to an outsourced bookkeeping company in India (offshoring) instead of hiring an accountant anywhere in North America (nearshoring).
When an entrepreneur is looking to delegate work, he or she must reflect on this issue of distance. Nearshoring may be the best technique to use when a client wants to have more control over how his accounts are processed. It is also the most appropriate method to use when an entrepreneur wants to meet face to face with the staff members of the outsourced bookkeeping company. Bookkeeping is not a very delicate part of a company as accounting and finance are. A bookkeeper’s role is to capture and enter daily transactions in various bookkeeping systems. Most web-based companies are excellent offshore bookkeepers because their system is online.
They are preferred to some nearshore companies because of their cheap services. However they cannot be completely trusted with handling very sensitive financial accounts. An outsourced bookkeeping company that is located in the same region as the client is the most appropriate when very sensitive and confidential financial data is involved. In addition to distance, an entrepreneur should know the real benefits behind any of two aforementioned forms of outsourcing prior to hiring any service provider. Companies that capitalize on subcontracting clearly reduce their operating costs.
By assigning clerical work to another outworker these companies pay the contract fees only. They are therefore able to eliminate the cost of sustaining in-house data entry employees who demand better working conditions to work efficiently. Besides lowering operational costs, an outsourced bookkeeping company helps an organization achieve high quality work swiftly. Most accounting firms have a big team of CPA (Certified Public Accountants) professionals that performs any job quickly and accurately.
Since accounting work is distributed among different staff members, a problem can be solved accurately from different angles. Since most accounting firms are operating on the internet these days, it is imperative to choose an accounting company that can guarantee security of the records using an exceptional data encryption method. Accounts and financial records should always be kept safe especially if they have to be prepared remotely. Above all, when picking an appropriate Outsources Bookkeeping Company, entrepreneurs should verify how the service provider they intend to hire works. Most accounting companies offer their services via a FTP server, managed server, client’s computer or an accounting software provider.
