The move to homeworking during the pandemic has meant that accountancy firms need to ensure that all the work they undertake is structured and logical.
For many, working from home will continue, and the shift has helped put the importance of effective communication, teamwork and collaboration at the top of the agenda, particularly for firms with a large number of staff.
It is important that things are prioritised and maximum use of the latest technology is employed, particularly cloud-based apps.
That is where outsourcing comes in and many of those mundane, but important tasks, can be handled more economically.
Digital cloud based accounting is in the ascendancy and increased digitisation and a lack of in-person contact is forcing firms to think carefully about how they structure their workflows as effectively as possible and ensure all aspects of their work links up seamlessly.
Many small businesses, start-ups, and entrepreneurs may find it challenging to hire an accountant with the right skills to prepare their company’s financial statements, manage bank account operations, analyse financial data, and prepare the outgoing invoices.
But many accountancy firms have benefited from the positive aspects of outsourcing bookkeeping and accounting services without any adverse effects on their business, employees and customers and a beneficial effect on the bottom line.
A small business may not require a full-time bookkeeper but needs a person with more skills than the office manager, or receptionist can provide, so here, outsourcing is a clear option.
In addition, where temporary services are needed, e.g., extra help with end of the year reports or if a full-time employee is going on holidays, maternity leave, etc, the same option applies.
