It is majorly done for cutting down on extra costs, leveraging the skills and expertise of the third-party company and focusing more on creative work rather than diverging into other work.
The outsourcing unit could be geographically located close to the parent organization or could be far away. It is a practice of passing down tasks, processes and organizational functions to the third-party company who will then perform all necessary actions to gel well with the objectives of the company.
Key Reasons Why Outsourced Accounting Services Is Highly Recommended
- Cost and Time Saving
There is a general impression that UAE accounting outsourcing services are costly but that’s not true. In fact, it turns out quite competitive and effective. There is a lot of savings on time, cost, and energy. Since the entire chunk of maintaining the accounts and finance portion is left to the outsourcing agency, the burden on the head of the organization is gone leaving them time to focus on their own work. By outsourcing, you lessen the costs of paying the salaries, infrastructure, taxes etc. for the employees who would have been taking care of it inhouse. Hence, outsourcing the whole activity is beneficial in terms of saving on costs, resources, efforts, and time.
- Easy Scalability of Resources and Functions
The outsourcing partner is competent enough to scale as per your needs, that may undergo a change over time. There could be more/less resources needed or more/less functionalities to be added. If it were inhouse, the burden of adjusting resources and functions would lie on the team. With outsourcing, the entire responsibility is borne by the service provider and hence there is least pressure on the in-house team. There is no need to undergo a stringent recruitment drive.
- Leveraging Automated Technologies
Most outsourced accounting units in UAE are well versed with the latest technologies and automation tools that can help in fastening and maintaining the accounts and finances. Most organizations now want to go in for such software solutions to increase revenue, lessen risks and enhance business results. This can be done effortlessly with the help of service providers since the inhouse team may not be well versed with the newest technologies. The outsourced accountants team will be well known to the underlying risks that may come along and hence will be well prepared.
- Evade Staff Turnover Issues
In an organization involving resources, there are chances of team members either falling sick, going on vacation, leaving the organization etc. In such cases, it causes pressure on the senior members of the team for getting in a replacement. As you outsource, this becomes the concern for the service provider and since they have resources lined up, they can easily replace so that work does not get hampered. It is best if the top management remains in constant touch with the service issuer and keep the resource list at its finest, for a proper and smooth execution. The best part is that even if accounting resources are replaced, they are well trained in the domain and hence need lesser training.
- Flexibility to Encompass Changing Business Requirements
As the business world evolves, the business needs keep changing. Accounting and finance requirements are tightly associated with the business activities and hence may undergo changes frequently. Having an experienced partner to manage this will ensure seamless updates in the implementation of daily activities, instead of having to waste time and energy over embedding the updated versions.
