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 advisory work
  • 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

We’re using TOA to shift from number crunchers to business advisors

I found that we were doing a lot of day to day mundane work that was taking away from the time that we could spend really adding value to our clients in an advisory capacity. For us to be able to take on more clients and to be able to still offer that hands-on, high-touch service that we’re trying to create, we needed someone to help us with back office day-to-day tasks.

Nowadays we have all this technology and ways to automate a lot of the lower level tasks so that we can really be advisors for our clients. That really excites me. We’re using TOA to deliver more value to clients and shift from “number crunchers” to “business advisors”.

I think TOA will help us scale a lot faster. Up until now, I’ve been really hesitant to focus much on business development. I was scared to take on too many clients at once. Now it’s limitless how many clients I can take on because I have the support of the TOA team.

There are a lot of possibilities and we’re all excited to see how big this can get

It’s been probably two years since we started working with TOA and it’s going great. There’s no complaints with our current team member and her communication is awesome.

We wanted to find somebody that shared our mindset and goals. In particular, we went into this process looking for somebody who could lead the team over there as it develops. We’ve been very clear with our first hire, Jam, that this role might morph more into a leadership position.

We want her to grow with us. There are a lot of possibilities and we’re all excited to see how big this can get. You hear about teams with five, six or seven members – we’d love to do the same. I’m excited to see Jam step up and manage a team like that when it happens.

If we had 14 spots, we would have hired each and every one of them

Our outsourcing journey started with not being able to find quality temporary tax season help, which made past tax seasons a disaster. We wanted to make things better, so we started to play with the idea of outsourcing.

Our employees know that their jobs aren’t on the line. They see this as a way to move them up so they can be in leadership roles and have extra support from overseas.

TOA had lined up 14 interviews for us. Before the day of the interviews we received all the resumes and the test scores. It was really neat to see the proficiency of knowledge and English. We ended up hiring seven staff in total.

Our president said if we had 14 spots, we would have hired each and every one of them because he just enjoyed all of them so much!

It’s a huge force multiplier and a competitive advantage for us

We had a lot of difficulty finding qualified accountants in the States. Another CPA friend told us about TOA. Honestly, I don’t think we had thought about it at all as a potential option, but we were very open to it once we heard about it.

We love our TOA team. They’re just like a regular part of our team, just they’re thousands of miles away. We have four staff accountants. They do a full range of work for our clients from bookkeeping, sales tax, business and personal returns, basic tax planning.

It’s economically is a great advantage. It’s a huge force multiplier and a competitive advantage for us. We’ve got a vision for growing our firm’s revenue, but finding qualified CPAs has always been a sticking point… Now we’re able to bring on more clients faster. So that’s a big win for us.
