Why accounting firms outsource bookkeeping?

High salaries of good bookkeepers

Good bookkeepers demand high salaries. For most accounting firms, major portion of the revenue made from bookkeeping goes to just pay their bookkeeper salaries. Accounting firms struggle to achieve decent profit margins on bookkeeping and hence choose to outsource their client bookkeeping jobs.

Good bookkeeping staff leave for other opportunities

Despite paying good salaries, it is very difficult to retain good bookkeepers as they know they are good and look for higher salary and opportunities elsewhere. It is very difficult to plan for business continuity when good staff leave. Outsourcing is a fantastic option for this problem scenario.

Managing the burden of overhead costs

The overhead costs such as rental, utilities, infrastructure, software, hardware and management of resources is a big burden for any practice. Cutting down on the overheads plays a major role in increasing the profitability and outsourcing is a fantastic avenue for significantly reducing these overhead costs.

Bookkeeping consumes lot of time for too little money
