Outsourcing your accounting saves you time and money

by Sable International | Oct 01, 2013
  • Small business owners have a habit of managing company finances themselves. After all, it’s a sure-fire way to cut costs and maintain control of company expenditure. However, a skilled accounting service allows you to minimise expenses and focus on business development.

    A recent study by the Nottingham Business School, published by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), identifies an overwhelming number of business owners who waste valuable time on accounts and finances when they should be focusing on the company’s business operations.

    “Bookkeepers and accountants are often regarded as little more than bean counters, rather than potentially having a business partnering role where they can advise and improve efficiency, and not just keep the books in order,” says Professor Malcolm Prowle, a researcher behind the CIMA report.

    According to Scott Brown, Director of Sable International, a specialist provider of bespoke accounting services, small business owners are often hesitant to share sensitive information with bookkeepers and accountants, opting to safeguard company finances themselves.

    “The time it takes a business owner to crunch the numbers costs them crucial management time. And this should rather be spent developing the business in other areas,” says Brown.

    The CIMA report identifies accountants and bookkeepers as crucial to the success of the enterprise as a whole. To do this, company directors need to understand the role that these ‘number crunchers’ play in managing finances.

    Outsourcing your accounting gives you more time to focus on what’s important, setting yourself ahead of your competitors and allowing your business to grow.
