Several years ago, a fast growing client asked us to take on all of their cash flow and bill paying functions, in effect making us their accounting department. The president of the company said, “Mike, our time is more effectively used growing our company and serving our customers, and we would rather outsource our routine accounting functions to you.” Of course, we had always provided payroll and bill paying services, but this was a different request indeed.
So we went to work, and the result is what we call our "Outsourced Office." Since we created and implemented this service for our clients, we have seen it become one of the most innovative and cost effective services our firm has ever provided.
This is how it works: We clean up or create a QuickBooks file, set up the accounting systems, install the system on our clients’ computers at their office, and our staff performs the routine accounting functions that our clients would otherwise have to do on their own or hire an office staff employee to do. It’s really that simple.
Payroll, bill paying, bank and credit card reconciliations, and the bookkeeping tasks that pile up are always up to date, correctly performed, and the information is ready to be used to make business decisions. No more backlog of invoices to pay. No more transactions to enter. No more rushing to get the bank a clean financial statement. And no more headaches from looking at a computer screen late at night just to get caught up on bookkeeping.
Should you decide to engage us as your company’s Outsourced Office, you will immediately enjoy three benefits to this innovative service that we offer:
Real-time Financial Reporting
Anytime you need a customer report, vendor analysis, sales graph, or financial report, the information is at your fingertips, just a click away. In the past, you must wait on your CPA for your financial statements and bank reconciliations. As your Outsourced Office, we can install QuickBooks on your computer system, and remotely log in performing all accounting functions from our office. No more waiting. It’s all at your fingertips.
Accurate Financial Records
Financial statements are worthless if they aren’t correct. With our firm entering the transactions into your system, you can rest assured that your financial reporting is accurate and the credit cards and bank statements are reconciled, ready for you to use to make business decisions.
Efficient Use of Resources
As your business grows, you may be faced with the decision of hiring an office assistant or adding responsibility to someone already on your payroll to do your bookkeeping. In this business environment, hiring the right person is no small task. Even if you find the “right” person, payroll, payroll taxes, and the burden of supervising an employee is a huge commitment. By outsourcing your accounting to our firm, there are no costly inefficiencies and no additional employees to supervise.
