The Accounting Industry Is Evolving: Are You Keeping Up?

Accounting Partners, Owners and Directors face a real problem today:

  • With the advancement of cloud technology and offshoring, compliance services have become commoditized and clients are demanding more value for money.
  • Attracting and retaining staff is increasingly difficult. Team members want stimulating and challenging work, but are all too often stuck behind a screen, instead of sitting in front of clients.
  • Firms lack the capacity to scale. Low margin compliance work chews up too many hours, leaving less time for high-margin strategic and advisory work.

The good news is that solutions do exist…

Most accounting firms have talented people capable of high-margin advisory work who get bogged down in low-margin compliance work.

How To Grow Your Capacity And Profitability With Global Outsourcing

Thousands of accounting, CPA and bookkeeping firms are already embracing global outsourcing, benefiting all stakeholders:

  • Firms are able to deliver compliance work at around one third the cost, freeing up time to focus on higher-value opportunities…
  • Local staff are freed up from time-consuming procedural work and are able to engage in more stimulating strategic work with clients…
  • And clients are able to save money on compliance, while benefiting from value-added services that grow their businesses and their net worth…

Everyone wins! But only if you choose the right accounting Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) partner…

What Accounting And Bookkeeping Firms
Are Saying About The Outsourced Accountant

TOA gives you more time and more resources to do the things that you actually want to do

TOA has given me more resources within my admin team at the office. The offshore team does not get interrupted the same as the receptionist does back in the office or the same as the other administration person. They don’t get the same phone calls from clients. They don’t get the same interruptions as interactions are done via email or via Skype.

TOA gives you more time and more resources to do the things that you actually want to do. You can then get TOA to do the things that you don’t necessarily want to do.

We’ve probably doubled in size

We’re very focused on helping our clients grow and improve their business. A lot of what we do is bookkeeping. We believe that if we control the data, we control the client. So if you can get your bookkeeping right, everything that flows on from there becomes simple. We needed to be able to scale up that part of our business. We haven’t been able to find the people that we need over in Australia, and we were able to find them here in the Philippines. So it’s been a great experience.

The role that our offshore team play will become an integral part of the business moving forward. Our business in Australia has gone through a phenomenal period of growth over the last 18 months. We’ve probably doubled in size. The team that we’ve put in TOA has allowed us to do that. As we bring on more and more clients, we’ll put more and more people on, and I expect that our existing team will be able to train them up.

It’s actually giving me some time back to spend with my family

I’ve been struggling with capacity within my own team. I was looking for an efficient way to enhance the service that our clients were receiving. I was looking for a way to work as efficiently and effectively as possible.

Having our team here in the Philippines means that work is no longer getting stopped by me. It just flows out; it gets done.

Now I’m spending more time doing what I do best, talking to people and winning businesses. Plus, it’s giving me some time back to spend with my family.

I’ve had rapid growth of clients and I wouldn’t have been able to achieve that without TOA

Our office is pretty much at capacity now and it was difficult trying to find accountants to come to the suburbs. I looked at a few options before choosing TOA. I liked that they specialized in accounting.

The recruitment team is really accommodating and very, very accessible. We’ve expanded our practice rapidly over the last three years. I now have eight staff in Australia and I have three staff in the Philippines. I’ve had rapid growth of clients and I wouldn’t have been able to achieve that without TOA.
