Considering that accounts and payroll data are one of the most sensitive aspects of a workplace, are you happy that a company employee has access to all of these, is there a conflict of interest there? And how secure is the software/computer that it currently sits on, do you currently have all the relevant disaster recovery procedures in place? Outsourcing addresses these risks. A regular off-site backup is also included in outsourced services, something that is costly and hard to manage when done in house.
– What happens if your computer crashes?
– Do you have 7 years of data kept in case of an audit?
Every business is unique, so is the industry they operate in. This means, that the information needs of every business can be different in one way or the other. For us, it is not about giving you one hourly rate and then charging you from the minute we start your work, until we literally put down our pen. We review your business with you and analyse your information needs, where you want to get to, and any other needs you may have. We then draw up a customised pricing structure for each of our clients to best serve their financial and business needs.
However, three things all clients get, which provide absolute flexibility – no startup costs involved, no lock in contracts and a fixed cost per month irrespective of the workload. Our philosophy is that ‘If we are doing a good job, our clients will stay with us’.
We will work with the software that you are comfortable with. Most businesses have a preference for the software that they use for various reasons, and in most cases we will accommodate your preferences. This can range dramatically from industry specific needs to more specific reporting requirements is each scenario. We are always happy to offer possibilities to change to a better software solution where applicable without the hassle of implementing and training someone at the client end.

Larger businesses can afford to maintain in-house bookkeeping/accounts personnel/departments. For small to medium businesses however, this option is a money burner. – How many hours are your employees devoting to payroll and accounts data processing -related activities? – What happens when your payroll staff are on holidays?
There are many ‘hidden’ costs when maintaining an in house solution. Yearly staff training, office space, software, hardware, can run into the thousands. Take into account that you would no longer have to spend in these areas.
Accounts processing/Payroll management is a time-consuming activity. With this burden removed, your employees can focus on being more productive, and you may even be able to trim your staff’s size.
– Can this time spent on payroll be better utilised in other areas? Is it adding value to your business?
There’s a lot to be said for the peace of mind that outsourcing office processes and related services can bring to a business owner or manager. No headaches, no hassles: You’re left to focus on running a profitable business.
