Benefits of Outsourcing your bookkeeping

When you dreamt of starting a business, those dreams probably didn’t include tracking your transactions and expenditures at 10 pm every evening! However, accurate bookkeeping and having a clear understanding of your financials plays an essential role in growing a successful business.

Without up-to-date and precise visibility of your numbers, you simply cannot plan effectively, or make strategic and informed decisions, and this is where a lot of businesses fail.

Thankfully, with the Governments plans for Making Tax Digital, there is no longer a need to keep copious amounts of excel spreadsheets, and there are many cloud-based accounting software options available that can generate real-time financial reports in an instant.

However, this software is only beneficial if the numbers are accurate and kept up to date.

Once a business starts growing, business owners will often find themselves in the position where they cannot manage to stay on top of their books, whilst juggling all the other areas of the business, and therefore need to decide whether they want to hire a bookkeeper or accountant to work in-house, or look to outsource their bookkeeping.

Here, we take a look at the benefits of outsourcing your bookkeeping services:

1. More time back to focus on your business

Logging and reconciling payments and other financial records can be a lengthy and time-consuming task and can be overwhelming amongst all the other responsibilities that come with running a business.

Many small business owners struggle to let go and delegate control of key business functions, but your time is valuable and also costs money so you need to use it as efficiently as possible.

Outsourcing your bookkeeping allows you to put more time into the operation of your business by focusing on improving your service and evaluating your processes, which will lead to the overall growth and success of your business.

2. Cost-effective

Business owners often assume that outsourcing their bookkeeping will come at a hefty cost but it’s actually far more cost-effective than you might think.

Hiring an in-house employee to handle your finances comes with its own costs such as:

Outsourcing accounting services will also help to reduce business costs such as dedicated office space, computers, data backups, etc.

At Blue Spire, we offer a fixed fee option for accounting services so costs are stable each month, and therefore easier to factor into your budget.

3. Expertise

Bookkeeping mistakes can be detrimental to a business and can lead to HMRC investigations and penalties as well as potential cash flow problems.

When you outsource your accounts, they are managed by highly trained professionals who are up to date with the latest bookkeeping methods, software and regulations, so you can be sure that your accounting will be done on time, accurately, and in a way that works best for your individual business.

4. Security

Security and keeping data confidential should always be a top priority in your business.

Outsourcing your bookkeeping to an accountant who will have extensive control systems in place to prevent fraud and protect your data will give you the peace of mind that your records are safe and secure.

5. Your accounts are always kept up to date

If you handle your own bookkeeping in-house and are away from work due to sickness or holidays, your accounts and reconciliations may fall behind.

When you use outsourced services, then you never have to worry about how you will catch up and you can put total confidence in your accountant that they will meet the deadlines even when you are not available.

6. Business Growth

Accurate and precise bookkeeping is the absolute key to being able to effectively measure the profitability of your business.
