Why Startups Need Finance and Accounting (F&A) Outsourcing Services?

Last updated: 14 Feb, 2023 By | 6 Minutes Read

For startups, the early years are extremely difficult. They have to compete with established companies and startups to create a niche for themselves in the extremely competitive work environment.

The startups give great importance to their core activities like production and marketing, and usually, ignore the less important tasks like finance and accounting (F&A).

Not paying proper attention to finance and accounting can cause great harm to a startup. It can hinder its future growth. Instead of looking to save money by performing the accounting and finance operation, on your own, you must look for an in-house accountant or hiring outsourced finance and accounting services.

For organizations that don’t have much accounting work at their disposal, the outsourcing option is ideal. Some of the signs that your startup requires accounting services are increased expenses. If you are experiencing enhanced expenditure, then the time is ripe for proper financial reporting.

For a startup, an accountant can offer the following functions i.e. business licensing, policies and procedures, expense tracking, monetary planning, revenue accounting, cash flow analysis, and tax preparation.

The various advantages of using finance and accounting outsourcing services are:

Allows you to concentrate on core activities

By outsourcing the non-core activities to a third party firm, you can spend all the time and energy on the significant functions of the organization. This will help in enhancing the profitability of the organization.

Access to accomplished staff

By utilizing the services of outsourcing firms, you can gain access to an accomplished team of accountants without having to actually hire them.

Saving costs and time

Outsourcing eliminates the need for providing infrastructure, salaries, etc. to employees. You have to only pay for the number of hours for which the outsourcing company has worked.

Offers easier option

When you hire in-house staff you have to perform functions like recruitment, training, and retention of employees. Whereas while using outsourcing services, you have to only abide by the contractual obligations.

Quick turnaround time

If you are startup based in a nation like the US, UK, etc. then hiring the services of an Indian company can be an advantage. The accounting tasks assigned in the evening can be completed by the start of the next day’s working hours due to the differences in the time zones.
