Here are answers to some Frequently asked Questions about Outsourcing Bookkeeping.
Why should I hire an outsource bookkeeper to do my bookkeeping rather than hire an in house bookkeeper?
There are many reasons why you should hire an outsource bookkeeper, however, the most important reason is that you will never have to hire, fire or retrain another bookkeeper ever again. We have all had our experiences with “revolving door bookkeepers” and it costs you time and money.
You will not have to pay a full time salary for a part time job. It is a known fact that most bookkeeping jobs only take a few hours a day or week to complete. Companies must pay huge weekly salaries for full time bookkeepers. This is simply not necessary.
We guaranteed that the job will be done correctly, efficiently and in the fastest time possible.
Finally, our bookkeepers do not get overtime, pension, health insurance or other employee benefits and you do not have to purchase new equipment or make space in your office as we can simply access your documents over a secure web portal.
