Top 7 Benefits of Outsourcing Your Bookkeeping

Running a successful business takes dedication and focus. So why are you spending so much time trying to manage your books?

With the right bookkeeping services, you’ll get industry-leading expertise that helps you get out of the back office and back into the game. Here are a few benefits you’ll gain from outsourcing your bookkeeping.

Save Time

What would you do with two extra work weeks every year?

According to data from the business mentoring group SCORE, 26% of small business owners spend one to two hours each month managing payroll. A staggering 40% spend over 80 hours a year managing their taxes.

By outsourcing these needs to a business accounting firm, like Vesta, you’ll have more time to focus on what you’re truly passionate about: growing your core business.

Save Money

You’ll quickly discover that the items on this list are in tune with saving money with outsourced bookkeeping services. However, you may still have considered hiring an in-house bookkeeper for your business. While this may seem like a good idea for larger corporate companies, small to mid-level businesses may find this more costly. Hiring to attract the right candidate, time spent interviewing, insurance, benefits, and training experience will cost your company.

With an outsourced bookkeeper, you get the benefits of an in-house bookkeeper at a fraction of the cost.

Reduce Risk

In response to the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA), the IRS has announced the hiring of more than 700 auditors to provide more service during the upcoming tax season. These additional resources aim to increase taxpayer services and ensure compliance with the new act’s regulations.

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA) brings new regulations that may prove challenging for businesses to comply. To mitigate these challenges, utilize an outsourced bookkeeping service from a CPA-led accounting firm, such as Vesta’s Thrive.

These professional accounting services can provide expert guidance and ensure compliance. By entrusting bookkeeping needs to such a service, businesses can have confidence in their compliance and adhere to both local and federal laws.

Develop a Tax Strategy

Preparing for tax season can be a year-round goal. A CPA tax advisor can help you plan your expenses to help you make the most of your deductions and lower your tax liability. And if you operate a retail business, you’ll need a tax professional or consultant to help you understand applicable sales tax laws for your in-person shoppers and your e-commerce platform.

What if you run a nonprofit organization? You’ll have additional requirements to meet, impacting how you regularly conduct your business. A nonprofit tax accountant can empower you to meet these requirements and develop a better tax strategy.

Grow Your Business

What better way to scale your business than with a team of experienced financial strategists at your side? By partnering with accounting professionals also skilled with strategic planning, like Vesta, you’ll gain access to cutting-edge expertise and knowledge that gives you the inside track when refining your business strategy.

For that matter, the time and money you save through outsourcing can be redirected back into your business. Outsourcing might be the catalyst you need to focus on a new project, market, or product line.

Gain Better Insights

Some small business owners worry they’ll lose control over their most valuable data if they hand over their financials to an accounting firm.

But according to a recent survey by PR Newswire (PRN), over half of all small business owners (56%) make decisions based on incomplete data. Handing your data over to an accounting firm will therefore give you more control, not less.

Not only will an accounting firm give you access to a team of CPA accountants and consultants, but you’ll also have access to your data through a simple, cloud-based platform.

You’ll enjoy end-to-end visibility of all your financial data, accessible from anywhere in the world. With this data comes greater insight and the ability to make strategic decisions about your company’s future.

Stay Up to Date

Getting behind in your books is easy. Getting caught up again is hard.

Even if your books are just a week out of date, the problem can quickly snowball. Before you know it, you’ll lose sight of your cash flow, which could jeopardize your ability to pay your bills — or your employees.

Outsourcing your books to an accounting firm ensures that your books are always caught up and accurate. This lets you have greater confidence in your decisions as a business leader, not to mention the peace of mind you’ll have knowing your debts and workers are covered.
