5 Reasons to Outsource Your Bookkeeping


Bookkeeping is one of the critical activities in any company. Without it, a business really can’t operate. But unless you are a bookkeeping firm, bookkeeping doesn’t really add anything to the bottom line. It is an expense. Outsourcing your bookkeeping can save money and provide a better outcome than “doing it in house.”

“We all know that non-profit organizations can be a complicated landscape. To find an accounting firm in our community that specializes in non-profits is unique and beneficial. It can make all the difference assuring accountability and transparency are a priority. We have been a client of Patterson, Hardee and Ballentine (PHB CPAs) since 2007. That relationship has allowed us to grow as an organization. The leadership and staff are wonderful to work with.” – Julie Schuster, Executive Director, TN Wildlife Resources Foundation

5 Reasons to Outsource Your Bookkeeping

If you are undecided about outsourcing your bookkeeping, to help you make your decision, consider these 5 reasons for outsourcing your bookkeeping to PHB CPAs:

  1. Do What You Do Best. Spending your time on what you do best makes more money than spending your time learning to do something that is not an integral part of what you do. For example, you could take a basic bookkeeping course so you feel comfortable doing your own books, but you still won’t be an experienced, professional bookkeeper. And the time you spent taking the course could have been used to improve your actual business in some way. Or you could be spending some quality time with family or just relaxing so you don’t burn out.
  2. Cleaner Books. Company books that are done by a professional are cleaner, more accurate, and less likely to result in penalties and interest if audited.
  3. Save Money. Professional bookkeeping can save you money. We understand how to record your transactions so that when it’s tax time, everything is clearly laid out in a way that assures you will get every deduction available.
  4. A Partner You Can Trust. Outsourcing your bookkeeping to PHB CPAs gives you a “partner” you can trust.  Sometimes employees, even family members, aren’t really up to the task, or worse, they do disappointing things when given access to a company’s finances.
  5. Better Than In-House Options. Because we are good at what we do, we can do your books faster and less expensively than you can pay someone to do it in-house.
