Strategies for Accountants to Accelerate Business Growth: Key Insights from The Ignite 2018 Roadshow

6-minute read

 

With our Ignite 2018 Roadshow in the history books, Nick Sinclair, Chairman of The Outsourced Accountant, held a webinar which discussed the key strategies taken up during the events that can help accountants, bookkeepers, accounting firm owners and partners build thriving businesses. The webinar revolved around how you can futureproof your workforce to ensure that you achieve sustainable growth. Here are snippets of what was discussed: 

Attracting A-players

strategies-for-accountants-accelerate-business-growth-attracting-A-players

One of the biggest challenges accounting firms face is getting, growing, and keeping the best people that the industry has to offer – the A-players. But before you can attract the cream of the crop, you need to have the answers to two key questions: 

1 – How does your business look from the outside? 

Right from the get-go, your initial value proposition is how appealing your business looks. If your website looks dated or your office looks dreary with paint chipping away, the best people will not be inclined to work with you. So, if you want to attract A-players, spruce up your website and do a bit of office renovations. A little goes a long way. 

2 – What do you stand for? 

Quality team members want to work for business owners that know their ‘why’, have their values set, and are passionate about what they do. When A-players are engaged in something they believe in, they will go that extra mile. So, determine the reason your business exists and then set your business values, culture, and standards to get the best staff knocking at your door. 

What is your people strategy?

 

strategies-for-accountants-accelerate-business-growth-people-strategy

When you have managed to attract the best people, you need to have a plan to grow your team. Many accounting firms create a growth strategy but fail to align their people strategy with it. There is no use having A-players when you don’t have a plan on how to provide them with the right tools, processes, and training to help them succeed. What we found throughout the roadshow was that most firms either have:  

1 – The right people doing the wrong work. On average, accountants and support staff spend 400 hours per year doing administration-related tasks. 

2 -The right people but not the right technology. Many firms invest on technology that they are not maximising the full potential of or worse, not using at all.

3 – The right people and the right technology but do not have the training and processes to use them properly. 

What most firms do not understand is that, to grow their business, you need to grow your people too. In line with this, individual development and learning plans must be in place to enhance their core competencies and develop new skills. 

Evolution of An Employee

strategies-for-accountants-accelerate-business-growth-evolution-employee

Global industries are changing. With it, the way people work is changing as well. All aspects from the how, when, where, and even to why people work as has evolved and will continue to do so. As you can see in the infographic above, industries at large are shifting from traditional methods to new-age practices. This is predominantly due to the rapid change brought about by disruptions in technology and work methods. What was once relatively effective ways of doing work and business has now given rise to innovative concepts because of the real need for accounting firms to adapt or be left behind. 

The key thing that can be derived from this is that accounting firms should have greater focus on ensuring that people are given highest priority. Your team is a critical factor that can make or break your firm. But it is important to remember that having all the latest and best technology and the most effective accounting business strategies are worthless without the right people to implement them properly. Keep in mind though that people with high-level skillsets come at a premium. So, here’s where you find that balance in getting the right people with the right skillsets for the right roles and at the right cost. 

Keeping The Best Team Members

strategies-for-accountants-accelerate-business-growth-keeping-best-team-members

When you’ve managed to get the right team for you, now you must focus on making sure they stay. Here the key questions you need ask yourself: 

1 – What are you doing to keep the best team members? 

Taking measures to ensure your best team members stay is of the utmost importance. Try implementing a development and training program so your team can enhance their core competencies and develop new skills. This is a veritable win-win situation. By growing your team’s capabilities, you not only give them a reason to stay but you dramatically improve your workflow and service delivery. 

2 – Do you know if your team is happy? What is your communication strategy? 

Knowing what motivates your team will allow you to determine how to maximise their productivity. Create communication rhythms to align your team with not only the day-to-day operations but also with your overall vision for your accounting business. Make sure to sit and talk with them to fully understand how you can make their time with your firm a truly inspiring and fulfilling one. 

Conclusion

With the accounting industry in a state of constant change, there has never been a more crucial time to have the right team in your stead. These are just some of the key points discussed in the webinar. What you always have to remember is behind every successful business is a team of inspired and highly skilled people. Do what you must to choose your team wisely, understand what makes them tick, and create ideal situations for them to flourish. Do this and you will see your business vision realised in less time than you would imagine.

Client Spotlight: How Offshoring Pushes Sky Accountants To Rapid Growth

Looking to be scalable, to get leverage and eventually build a business that can run without the owner, Sky Accountants was one of the first firms to give outsourcing a try and later on embrace it because of its great benefits and the opportunities it brings.

Key takeaways from this interview:

  • What made Jamie decide to outsource dedicated staff
  • The performance of his offshore team, and his future plans for them
  • The benefits that Sky Accountants has gained for investing in training
  • What were Jamie’s fears and doubts when starting to outsource
  • What Jamie has realised when he started to build an offshore team in the Philippines
  • How has The Outsourced Accountant (TOA) helped Sky Accountants through outsourcing
  • The benefits that Sky Accountants gained through outsourcing
  • Jamie’s advice to accounting business owners

 

It’s always been a positive experience, an affirmation of our business’ vision and values when we connect with our clients and learn about their outsourcing journey and successes, which for us is reflective of our own success as well.

Today, the spotlight is on Jamie Johns of Sky Accountants, one of the first firms in our clientele list to embrace outsourcing. Jamie provides us with some valuable insights into his outsourcing journey, his doubts when he started outsourcing, and some pro tips for business owners who are looking to grow their firm. These and more below in our excerpts from our interview with him.

Meet Jamie Johns, CEO of Sky Accountants

Jamie, an entrepreneur at heart, started ‘Sky Accountants’ from his home office. He specialises in helping business owners ‘build a business that can run without them‘. Sky Accountants deliver on this promise to guide individuals and businesses to success via the most efficient processes and proactive business partnerships.

Jamie has five full-time dedicated outsourcing staff in Clark, Philippines. Donita and Jacqueline are accountants, Kimberly and Jesille are bookkeepers, and Adrian is a marketing specialist. As the business grows, Jamie is looking to expand his offshore team at TOA next year with another three or four.

In the early stage of his outsourcing journey, Jamie needs to train his offshore team with Australian Tax, computer systems etc. Creating a domino effect where training one person can help train other people to do the things that are needed to do. The process becomes a lot easier as they go further and eventually their persistence on training paid off. “If you stick to it and have persistence, you’ll get the rewards,” says Jamie.

But, how did it all start?

Sky Accountants And Their Outsourcing Journey

To be scalable and to get leverage, these are Jamie’s main reason to outsource. In a global economy where borders don’t necessarily matter anymore, Sky Accountants is one of the first firms to embrace the opportunities that other countries could bring through technology. They are quick and smart to recognise that outsourcing is a natural part of it.

 

“Any successful business owner has to realise that the world is smaller and border don’t necessarily matter anymore. It’s important to embrace the opportunities that you’ve got with other countries and come together and do your best.

Jamie Johns

 

Like everyone else, Jamie had his own sets of doubts and challenges when he started outsourcing.This includes communication, quality of work, speed, turnaround time, and other common fears in a business. But once they started operating and adding staff to the team, it just got easier especially with the use of the right technology. Sky Accountants learned to overcome these fears in the process.

 

Offshoring challenges

 

Now on his third year with TOA, Jamie couldn’t be happier with his offshore team and their valuable contribution to Sky Accountants. When talking about his offshore team in the Philippines, Jamie is keen to answer “They’re all totally enthusiastic. They’re always great to deal with, and very positive. Their productivity is great and I couldn’t speak more highly of them.”

With the business growing, the longer that they work with their staff and the more they train them, the smarter and more efficient they become. It’s a win-win for both Jamie and his offshore team and their clients for providing the best accounting services.

How has TOA helped Sky Accountants

Jamie specifically highlighted three of the main benefits Sky Accountants has gained through outsourcing with the help of The Outsourced Accountant, “The team that Nick has put around himself both here and in Australia is excellent and they’re always open to feedback and improving their business. They’re always approachable and you always get timely responses.”

According to Jamie, having a team offshore is like having a team locally. You implement the same process, you treat them as part of the team and you unite the business and paint the future where you want to take it like with any other team members. That’s how he treats and values his team offshore. “They’re all part of a larger strategy to grow our business and it’s a global economy,” he added.

 

TOA helping businesses

 

If you’re an accountant, a business owner, or an adviser who is considering to invest in this space to achieve business efficiency, profit, and growth, here’s Jamie’s advice for you:

 

“When you start doing outsourcing, it’s important to get your structures and processes right. You need to systemise your business, you can have how-to videos and all sort of things but the biggest aspect in making it structured and all the workflow process.

Jamie Johns

 

This is just one of many client success stories at The Outsourced Accountant, where we pride ourselves on establishing a strong working relationship with our clients as a key method of delivering outstanding results each and every time.

Secrets Of Their Success

A webinar with:

Jamie Johns | CEO Sky Accountants
Accounting Business of the Year Awardee

Michael Risoli | Business Manager MKS Group
Service Excellence in an Accounting Business Awardee


Hosted by The Outsourced Accountant CEO, Nick Sinclair, we find out what it takes to be not only a winner at the Panalitix Annual Achievement Awards 2017 but also as innovators in the accounting and finance industry. Hard work, smarts, adaptability to the times are what stood out from these two firms. Below are excerpts from the Q and A part of our webinar.

How have you found the quality of staff to be like with offshoring?

Jamie: TOA provides a really good screening process so you’d always hire suitable candidates with the qualifications that you require. Some of the staff would really come with high-end skills. For example, we needed someone in payroll and you wanted to find someone with international experience. The quality hasn’t been an issue for us.

TOA provides a range of applicants to interview and then you can take them through some of your own tests. So we do a sort of matrix on every person and then decide. And then the rest will be up to the leadership of the business to take those people in, train them, make them feel part of the team, part of the culture. That hasn’t been a problem.

 

How have your clients found the fact that you are outsourcing?

Jamie: We’re upfront with clients. We don’t make it a massive issue and sort of push it in everyone’s face. At the same time, we don’t hide it. We just treat it exactly the same as you would hire someone locally. If people ask, we tell them. We introduce the offshore staff to clients. You really have to make your business strategy part of your plans. You’re really putting a stake in the sand and say “this is what I stand for”.

For whatever reason, if you (clients) don’t like it perhaps Sky Accountants is not for you. But that’s the decision that we’d let the client make. In saying that, we’ve never had it as an issue.

 

Can you tell us more about ‘compliance work dying’? What’s your take on this?

Jamie: Compliance is as relevant as it’s ever been. If you look at selling your business, or for those who are out there looking to buy businesses, you cannot buy businesses based on your current income. So all these rubbish about compliance dying or going away, it’s just rubbish because at the end of the day, people buy and sell businesses. They buy and sell based on a new income.

What are tax returns? They are annuity income. What’s bookkeeping? And that’s annuity income. And the three things about that tug of work is it’s teachable, it’s repeatable, and it’s scalable. So it’s as relevant as ever and it will never go away.

Michael: I’ve heard that many times, in some cases, in some areas where you have a simple tax return, maybe that’s what you start to lose steam as regulation changes. But we only have to look at the changes to superannuation and that just sort of makes the complexity of compliance that much harder from a superannuation point of view. I don’t see it dying and I haven’t actually experienced a reduction in compliance in the last probably 5 years, didn’t probably even hear that kind of talk. It’s really been upwards and onwards.

As structures become more complex, compliance grows with it. I don’t see it dying right now.

 

With setting up your offshore team, have you had to go over to the Philippines? How often? What’s your strategy in making your offshore team part of your global team?

Michael: We definitely see a lot of value in going over to the Philippines. Currently, every quarter we go over there. But in between that, there’s daily interaction with the team on everything,  from learning and coaching point of view to instruction point of view.

Definitely, every time we have gone over, we see an uplift in the understanding (of the work and culture) and the effort. We’re actually looking at what Jamie has done and bringing some of them here on a rotational basis.

Jamie: You need to speak with them every day on either TeamViewer or Skype for Business, or with whatever platform you’re using. I went there to the Philippines in December last year, for the first time in over two years since we’ve been working with TOA.

In that time, we’ve had two accountants come to Australia for training. So we have our in-house policy now on bringing someone here for training. On the flipside, we will have someone going there every six months from the team. So both ways.

 

If you were to walk in your shoes again and you were to start your practice as a clean slate tomorrow, what would you do differently?

Jamie: That’s an easy one, Nick. I’d get a mentor.

Michael: I’d get a piece of paper and design what I think the firm should look like, how the business is going to run and how I see myself in it rather than getting stuck into a default mode and end up sort of having to reverse engineer it.

 

How often do you spend time with your offshore team?

Jamie: We speak to them every day via TeamViewer or Skype for Business whatever the platform is. I went there to the Philippines in December last year for the first time. In that time we’ve had two accountants come to Australia for training, so we’ve got our in-house policy now that when someone’s out here with us try to bring them out here for training and on the flip side we will have someone going there like every six months from the team, both ways.

Michael: We do daily interaction with the team, from a learning and coaching point of view to instruction point of view. It’s like having a team member here locally. You have to invest in them. For us, it was a no-brainer to go overseas and to actually work with them and sit with them and see what the environment they work in and also understand how information from our end is coming in and how we can improve that for their benefit as well.

Big Increase In Accounting Firms Using Outsourcing


In the latest poll data from our webinar Essential Guide To Outsourcing And Cloud Security For Accountants, 43% of the audience were shown to have outsourcing solutions up and running. This represents a big jump compared to the data gathered from the joint webinar with Panalitix, How To Become a Real-Time Accountant and Add Value to Your Firmheld in November 2016 with only 11%. Over 40% of respondents were also thinking about setting up offshoring support or inquiring.

 

Latest Data Shows A Big Increase In Accounting Firms Engaging In Outsourcing

[Part 2 of 3 series]

 

Nick Sinclair, CEO of The Outsourced Accountant (TOA), with Jamie Beresford, CEO of Practice Protect covered the following topics with over 200 respondents:

  • The vital case for outsourcing
  • Expert insights into how leading firms are outsourcing
  • Tips on managing a global workforce
  • Identifying the most crucial cloud security risks
  • How to ensure that you’ve got your clients’ data (and yours) secure

 

“With the advent of cloud technology and globalisation, we see outsourcing as a viable option now particularly the accounting industry.”

Nick Sinclair

have you already got an offshore team

How To Become a Real-Time Accountant and Add Value to Your Firm (November 2016)

The large jump in accountants practising outsourcing is certainly a  good pulse on the industry. Outsourcing has gained ground and been welcomed in the accounting industry as firms strive to respond to numerous challenges, improve efficiency and deliver more for customers than ever before.

Nick Sinclair was quick to note the change in how accounting firms currently look it as an angle to entice applicants for recruitment.

 

“A large number of firms are advertising to graduates stating — you’ll never have to do a tax return. You’re coming into the business for an advisory role — with a lot of the compliance work being outsourced to a global team, it provides a great opportunity for graduates to focus on local client facing work.”

 

A good part of the audience has also considered outsourcing with 30% indicating they are not outsourcing right now but are thinking about it. 11% have engaged in outsourcing but not at the moment while 14% are looking into starting their outsourcing journey. This is all indicative of how much change and firm reviews are happening in the industry.

A number of case studies can be viewed here around how outsourcing can be a positive change factor for a firm, improving efficiency and productivity.

“Outsourcing is not just about tax and compliance, it’s about efficiency and setting a firm up for long-term growth,” Nick says.

The webinar discusses reasons why outsourcing amidst industry changes is such a practical option to take. From addressing capacity restraints to attracting and keeping talent, from price pressure to labour costs, Nick shared his insights from his own experience on running The Outsourced Accountant in the Philippines.

Cloud Security Concerns For Accountants, A Top Concern … And Growing!

[Part 1 of 3 series]

In our latest webinar, Essential Guide To Outsourcing And Cloud Security For Accountants, 23% of the audience identified cloud security as one of the top concerns about offshoring ranking it 2nd in the list from the poll conducted.

The share of this concern has grown considerably in the last six months, with over two-thirds of respondents citing the need to review their business exposure to security risks.

What is your biggest concern with outsourcing

Essential Guide To Outsourcing And Cloud Security For Accountants (May 2017)

biggest offshoring concern

How To Become a Real-Time Accountant and Add Value to Your Firm (November 2016)

“Do you have a plan on how to manage your cloud security?”

Jamie Beresford

 

The growing concern can be linked to the latest legislation on the mandatory disclosure of data breaches in the accounting industry. More importantly, the uptake of cloud technologies in recent years has been aggressive in the accounting industry. Room for improvement certainly exists in adopting tighter security controls to control firm IP and protect client data.

Jamie Beresford, CEO of Practice Protect, discussed the ways in which firm owners can ensure data security. Included in Beresford’s list is a single sign-on system (SSO) to ensure password protection. This means that offshore (and onshore) staff will not have only one password to access to various platforms or systems your business is using. This certainly brings:

  • convenience in not having to remember several passwords for each platform that you are using
  • a firm’s systems and data are locked in and accessible only in an assigned location with permission — in this case, where your offshoring office would be. Staff cannot log in outside of these premises unless given due access.
  • an option to lock specific locations by IP address
  • additional layers of protection if a computer is shared
  • the ability of a single click to lock a team member out of all applications
  • easy tracking and deleting of access should an employee leave

 

“Fundamentally, it’s about consolidating passwords in a single identity per person, that can be monitored and tracked 24/7.”

 Jamie Beresford

 

Mr. Beresford stresses, “it’s really important that you have that log in from a compliance perspective and from a due diligence perspective” as a reference to an example where a firm’s client was hacked.

Tracking the list of people who had access proved to be a very good way of getting to the cause and, at the same time, identifying the party responsible for the incident.

Practice Protect integration

At The Outsourced Accountant, this single sign-on system is implemented along with:

  • No access to flash drives or any external drives, photocopy machines, among others, to prevent unauthorised copying of data. Several levels of approval from immediate superior to team leader to client are enforced before access is granted.
  • Certain sites are prohibited
  • Office premises are accessible only via an encrypted card
  • Building access only via a thumbprint security

 

Jamie Beresford and his team at Practice Protect work to provide the safest environment for global businesses particularly those outsourcing into the Philippines. Learn more about cloud security and reach out to Jamie Beresford here.

Client Spotlight: How Outsourcing Allowed LPR Advisory To Scale and Grow

Struggling to find high quality staff, Ryan came across a friend who had tried outsourcing and had a lot of success. He then looked into it and gave it a try. Having a team offshore forced LPR Advisory to procedurise and systemise their business which uncovered a lot of inefficiencies with how they do business.

Key takeaways from this interview:

  • His firm’s struggle in looking for good quality staff and how he is able to find a good one
  • What made his firm decide to outsource
  • The “unseen help” of outsourcing in terms of quality of work
  • The offshore team’s performance and his relationship with them
  • The benefits of embracing outsourcing
  • His insights into the current accounting landscape

Today, the spotlight is on  Ryan Addinsall of LPR Advisory. Ryan provides us with wonderful insights into his journey to the outsourcing space, what drives and inspires him in this industry, his hesitations and expectations, and the benefits he gained in deciding to outsource. These and more below in our excerpts from our interview with him.

Meet Ryan Addinsall

Ryan Addinsall is the Director of LPR Advisory, an accounting and advisory business in Sydney, Australia founded in 2003. LPR Advisory focuses in assisting small to medium-sized businesses in streamlining their accounting compliance and systems to work on their growth and improvement.

Ryan has two dedicated outsourcing staff in Clark, Cindy and Jessica, whom are very highly engaged in their roles. From their initial Skype interview, Ryan and his team have developed a great connection and have nurtured this throughout time. Ryan got to spend a week in the Philippine office to personally train Cindy and Jessica. When he got back to Australia, the training and mentoring didn’t stop. That’s how they were able to build a great working environment that is happy, growing, and positive.

But, how did Ryan and the LPR Advisory get into the outsourcing space in the first place? Here’s how it started.

LPR Advisory’s Outsourcing Journey

Getting advice from an independent advisor or a firm with outsourcing experience often is a good choice. This is how it worked with Ryan and the LPR Advisory.

Ryan was struggling to find good quality staff for his business, so when came across a friend who had tried outsourcing and had a lot of success, he looked into it and gave it a try. Through a qualified referral, he got in contact with The Outsourced Accountant (TOA), and the journey started.

 

“We’re struggling to find good quality staff to do a lot of the bookkeeping and accounting roles for our business.”

 

Ryan found the skill level of his dedicated staff a bit strange, at first. Contrary to what is expected, where he usually finds fresh graduate accountants with university qualifications, Cindy and Jessica, who are now part of LPR Advisory’s staff with The Outsourced Accountant, have had quite a lot of experience. He was amazed by the number of companies they have worked for, both for private firms and for the government.

Through a series of training and development courses, both Cindy and Jessica were able to apply their accounting knowledge and experience to the Australian Tax System, and from there, they just continue to grow and become very well-versed in the local tax practices. They got up to speed with the clients very quickly and they’ve been performing really well.

The Offshoring Benefits

Because the team is offshore, LPR Advisory was forced to procedurise and systemise their business which uncovered a lot of room for growth. “It actually uncovered a lot of inefficiencies in the way that we run the business. It forced us to procedurise and systemise the business which then had the effect of actually improving the business a lot and allowing us to scale and grow” says Ryan.

 

Benefits of Outsourcing

 

Whatever might be holding you back, innovative entrepreneurs can always benefit from the success stories of those who had done it.

That positive perspective often unfolds things you didn’t see or realise were possible. “It’s really opened up our eyes to the possibilities. We don’t know how it’s going to work and where it’s going to end up but it turned out for the better. It gives you that positivity and the confirmation that when you don’t know what’s around the corner, you’ve got to give everything a try. So yeah, it’s been fantastic,” Ryan added.

 

“One of the things I’ve really enjoyed is the remote which technology these days and the ability to be able to connect so easily through video conferencing and things like that … it’s a whole new way of doing business. It’s the future. 

Ryan Addinsall

 

This is just one of many client success stories at The Outsourced Accountant, where working with our clients as partners is a key method for delivering outstanding results each and every time.
