Tax time can be all-consuming, in terms of time and attention, when it comes to business accounting and bookkeeping. This is true even for CPA firms that perform accounting and bookkeeping functions for their clients.
Ironically, this is one of the compelling reasons that a CPA firm can use outsourcing help: to ease pressure they face in terms of their own client deliverables and to access expertise and reliability in accounting for themselves and the sake of their business.
How can outsourcing help CPA firms to file taxes easily? Given below are some examples:
Freedom from constant worry: Tax time can be a potentially fatiguing time. Add to this the tax filing responsibility for the numerous clients a CPA firm caters to. On the other hand, outsourcing is work carried out by professionals focused on it alone. This is unlike a CPA firm owner who is likely to be multi-tasking between tax filing for clients alongside that of his or her own firm. The professional at the outsourced firm is not distracted by anything else, and the result is error-free tax preparation and filing.
Expertise backed by infrastructure: Sound infrastructure can help cut errors as well as time taken to complete work, including tax filing. Outsourcing firms have already invested in reliable infrastructure to ensure accounting and bookkeeping requirements for their clients are executed even within higher volumes. For a CPA firm, investing in infrastructure can prove to be a costly proposition, especially if it is a growing business. Outsourcing allows the CPA firm to tap into this established set-up successfully.
Experienced manpower: Because outsourcing firms have a commitment to their own clients, they are staffed by professionals and skilled manpower. For a small to mid-sized business, even one that is growing rapidly, investing in skilled manpower can prove to be costly. Outsourcing allows a CPA firm to tap into expertise minus the expense or hassle of recruiting. Further, it means that the CPA firm’s own resources are free to focus on their own business.
Freedom from temp staffing worries: Some CPA firms hire temp staff to help them tide over tax time. This is challenging from two perspectives: it is difficult to ensure that the right person is hired for the job, and once hired, retaining them can be challenging, especially since it is clearly a temp position. Outsourcing removes this factor altogether, also adding an element of professionalism and expertise to what might otherwise be a temp job.
Faster, cost-effective, quality work: Outsourcing firms, because of their professional staff and typically current infrastructure, deliver better work faster. Moreover, outsourcing proves to be more cost-effective than an in-house set-up.
