In-House Accounting Vs. Outsourcing
One of the major arguments against doing business in-house is just simply that there is a great deal of time involved in maintaining an in-house bookkeeping department. Businesses that have bookkeeping done in-house often have a difficult time growing, because they have to constantly hire new employees, keep track of payroll, and keep up with all of the paper work. For example, if a company only does bookkeeping work once a month, and then has to hire three new employees to do the job once a week, that is a huge time drain on the business owner. Bookkeeping can also cost quite a bit of money to outsource to a third party company. Outsourcing your bookkeeping costs, allows you to maintain your current employees, while you focus more of your attention on running your business.
