Accounting Services

Preparing a proper set of financial statements is crucial even for small companies. You can either hire an in-house accountant to do your company accounts or outsource this task to an accounting firm. We would strongly encourage you to outsource to a professional accounting firm.

The 5 key reasons why you should outsource your accounting work to a professional accounting firm:

  1. Saves time.
    By outsourcing the accounting task to a professional, you will be able to focus on other areas instead of wasting time on sorting out documents and doing data entry.

  2. Saves money.
    If you hire your own in-house accountant, the monthly salary, CPF contribution may work out to be more than the cost of outsourcing the accounting work to a professional accounting firm.

  3. Ensures availability of competent accountant.
    Often due to the mismatch of salary expectation and relevant working experience you may face difficulties in recruiting a suitable in-house accountant. Outsourcing, on the other hand, ensures that there will always be someone qualified to do the job and an Accounting Manager that is accountable.

  4. "Back-up" & continuity.
    Commonly, a small company may employ one in-house accounts person to handle the entire range of the accounting work. In such a situation, should the staff resign, you will be left with no one to handle the work, and you may encounter delays with the retrieval of accounting information for your business operations. Also, you will find that it is harder to fill the job vacancy because job applicants do shy away from joining a company with huge accounting backlog.

    When you outsource your accounts to a professional firm, there will always be someone managing your accounts at any point in time.

  5. Customised accounting requirements.
    Although most professional accounting firms offer accounting packages, you can also choose to have the services tailored to your company need without blowing your budget on fees.

If you decide to outsource your accounting work/functions, you can contact us, and our specialist will be pleased to meet up with you for assessment of your company’s requirements.
