Why should I outsource my bookkeeping?
Some business owners try to do it themselves, enter receipts, invoice, pay bills, process payroll, reconcile bank accounts, plus a myriad of other things required to stay on top of one’s company’s finances. This inevitably leads to problems because they spend too much time on the detail instead of running their own business. Others hire bookkeepers or Accountants to do it for them, but the true cost of this method significantly eats into profitability. This is where Accounting Office Outsourced comes in. We will serve as your Accounting office and take care of the books, pay the bills and invoice your customers. It will be made seamless to your company’s processes, and the result will be continuously complete, up-to-date financial information that you will use to help run your business, all for a fraction of the price of doing it on your own.
What type of service options do you offer?
Every company is unique, which is why we will first assess your Accounting function and processes. Once we have a better understanding of your business we can design a service proposal specific to your requirements.
What geographical areas do you service?
We provide outsourced bookkeeping services to companies in any United States location. Because we utilize the latest secured remote technologies, we create an environment which feels like we are sitting in an office right next to yours. In fact, since you will have anytime access to your files, you will experience an improvement over the limited access you may have to your records today.
Where will my data be kept?
Security of your information is our top priority, which is why all of your data will be housed in a certified SAS 70 Type II data center with built-in business continuity, as well as redundant servers, switches and power supplies. As importantly, your data will be backed up daily with on-site and off-site duplication.
When can I get access to our files?
The wonderful thing about having an outsourced Accounting office is that you always have access to your files, no matter the time, no matter the day. That’s 24/7/365 secure availability that is typically not feasible for traditional Accounting departments. Imagine, no longer having to wait to come back to the office just to find an old invoice.
What is the best way to communicate with my bookkeeper?
We have created processes which ensure that we have the highest standards for processing your financial information. That means that clarity is paramount for providing you accurate data. This is why all instructions and requests are asked to be made in email as this protects you from having your bookkeeper misinterpret your directions. Of course, we absolutely welcome your calls and always look forward to hearing from you.
Will I BE ABLE TO save money by outsourcing my bookkeeping?
Absolutely. When you have a bookkeeper on staff there are obvious costs in addition to their salary, things like benefits, taxes and expense reimbursements. At Accounting Office Outsourced we only spend time doing one thing - taking care of your books, and that is the only thing you pay for. No extra costs, just results.
Do you replace our tax preparer and auditors?
No. Accounting Office Outsourced is not a CPA firm, which means that we do not perform audits nor prepare taxes. Our focus is to serve as your company’s Accounting office and provide you with regular, complete financial information that you can use to manage your business. This focus is also the reason why tax preparers and outside auditors love working with us as we can give them up-to-date information when required, only upon your request. Not only does that make their jobs significantly easier, it also typically lowers their fees as well.
