Not wanting to wish away the summer, but it will soon be Autumn and for many businesses this is the time that they start to focus their energies on their tax returns. After all, for any business it is essential to stay on top of deadlines for tax returns and accounts, as well as all the various tax rates and thresholds.
However, let’s be honest filing your tax return is never a job anyone is going to relish and although many businesses do it in good time, many find the job so daunting that they leave it to the last minute. And it’s easy to see why, tax laws are complicated and even for those businesses that pride themselves on conscientious business practices, so is being compliant. Plus, even a simple and completely innocent mistake can result in financial penalties that can get worse if ignored, never mind the time and effort it takes to rectify any mistakes made.
So, we’ve probably convinced you that for your business it really is beneficial to file your tax return early. However, there will be many of you out there who are thinking, easier said than done. After all you get it: running and managing a business in this ever increasingly competitive economy requires you to be ahead of the game, where you keep abreast of the continuous financial and tax regulatory changes; where you manage your accounting and finance operations including tax, reporting and payroll in the most accurate, compliant and efficient way possible.
But, you’re under constant pressure with so many distractions that come from doing your actual full-time job; the need to be constantly reducing costs and overheads to stay profitable and the demands to constantly increase revenues so you not only survive but thrive. The simple truth is that your tax returns, although very important to you, are often the last thing on your mind.
For many businesses within the accounting industry the best choice has been to partner with a specialist outsourced accounting and finance partner as it offers improved process efficiency, significantly reduced operating costs and much high levels of accuracy and compliance. Which all lead to better peace of mind and freed up in-house time which can be better utilized elsewhere, such as growing the business.
By outsourcing the accounting process of a accounting business, the benefits are more than just freeing up time and include:
You gain a team of experts - even if you can find the right in-house accounting accounting specialists, you still will only have access to a small team. By partnering with an outsourced accounting and finance partner their large team of highly experienced and qualified experts become your team.
You gain flexibility and scalability - partnering with an outsourced accounting and finance partner offers a business the opportunity to expand and grow at their own pace by having instant access to a dedicated team that can grow or reduce overnight.
You gain access to the latest technology and infrastructure - your outsourced accounting and finance partner will handle such large volumes of accounting work that they will always need to invest in the latest technology and infrastructure.
