Top 3 Benefits of Outsourcing Your Bookkeeping

Top 3 Benefits of Outsourcing Your Bookkeeping

08 August 2018

When it comes to business, every dollar counts. It can be tempting to view bookkeeping fees as just another in a long line of expenses, but there are many benefits of outsourcing your bookkeeping to someone you trust. It will not only make your life a whole lot easier, it will also help grow your business. Below are the top three reasons why you should outsource your bookkeeping.

1. Spend more time on the things that matter

Anyone running a business knows that time is money. If you’re a busy manager, business owner or entrepreneur, staying on top of things like credit card reconciliation and PAYG reporting can be a time-consuming affair.

Hiring an expert bookkeeper frees up your time to be used more effectively. Think of outsourcing your bookkeeping as an investment in improving your productivity, as it allows you to spend more time on the things that really matter. If you want to free up even more time, you might also want to consider outsourcing your payroll management.

At AR Advisors we have a range of fixed-fee accounting packages that include our cloud-based bookkeeping service, which can automate and streamline arduous processes and prevent you doubling up on data entry. This will ultimately save you time and money.

2. Avoid paying excess tax

Nobody likes paying more tax than they have to. Consolidating your bookkeeping and tax compliance in a fixed-fee package is the best way to ensure your accountant has complete oversight of your business. This will put you in a better position to navigate the complex business tax landscape in a way that ensures you’re not paying more tax than you should. A better tax position is one of the reasons why outsourcing your bookkeeping can, in many instances, pay for itself.

3. Grow your business

While bookkeeping can be seen as merely an obligation, when outsourced to a trusted partner as part of a consolidated accounting bundle , it can actually create opportunities to grow your business. Providing your accountant with visibility of your day-to-day cash flow means they can collaborate with you on your business planning based on a holistic understanding of your business. This is one of the longer-term benefits of outsourcing your bookkeeping.

For example, our Platinum Business Bundle not only includes the highest level of bookkeeping service, it also provides you with unlimited access to general business and tax advice; the sort of advice that can unlock new opportunities for your business to grow. In addition, it includes KPI reporting and management reporting as part of our virtual CFO service , to ensure your business is on the right track.

Savvy business people can take a step back and look at the bigger picture to help them succeed. When it comes to bookkeeping, if all you’re focused on is the upfront cost then you’re missing the point. An expert bookkeeper can make your life easier, improve your productivity, and grow your business.
