What is Outsourced Bookkeeping?

As a company grows, it’s common to find that the volume and complexity of accounting tasks become more than in-house staff can – or choose to - handle. However, your needs may not be sufficient to justify the cost of hiring a full-time bookkeeper. It’s a fine line and that’s where outsourced bookkeeping services may be the right solution for your business.

What is Outsourced Bookkeeping?
When you opt to outsource your bookkeeping to a company such as FORTE, an accounting technician from our team will come to your location to complete your bookkeeping work using computer equipment and software provided at your office. This type of direct interaction between your company and our technician allows our staff to develop an in-depth familiarity with your company. Additionally, any issues that come up as the work is completed can be discussed and resolved right away.

Benefits of Outsourced Bookkeeping
Outsourcing your bookkeeping requirements offers many benefits when compared to hiring full-time staff, including: 

  • Profit from the knowledge and experience of a full team of accounting professionals
  • Pay only for the time needed to fulfill your accounting needs 
  • Save time on hiring, training, and managing additional employees
  • Save money on employee overhead costs such as vacation time, benefits, and withholding taxes

Outsourced bookkeeping ensures that your accounting needs are met in a timely manner by knowledgeable staff who complete your work at your office at a frequency that fits the volume of work your company requires.
