Outsource basic bookkeeping functions, save money and free your attention so you can focus on the 20% of tasks producing 80% of your income and profits

The benefits of outsourcingWelcome to — the back office outsourcing information resource for Long Island and New York.

On these pages we describe our services and the benefits that are available from outsourcing your accounting, bookkeeping and other back office functions.

Please note that outsourcing these tasks will NOT require you to change your accountant or CPA.

But often it will save quite a bit of money.

Most businesses aren't aware of this, but it is very common to pay twice the price for many tasks to your accountant or CPA on work that could be done by a bookkeeper equally well and significantly cheaper.Problems with your QuickBooks? We can provide easy solutions...

Another point to consider is that by outsourcing the nonessential tasks, you will free up SPACE and resources that can be used for producing income and profits.

Not only that but because an outsourced solution is based on a business relationship, it will also remove a lot of attention-demanding workaday situations which could distract you from doing what you want.



Your true potential lies in doing those 20% of actions leading to 80% of income and profits

Utilize outsourcing so you can focus on the 20% of your core business activities.The old 20/80 rule means that only about 20% of the things done in any business bring in 80% of its income and profits.

Reversely, 80% of what is being done only contributes some 20% to the main goal of the company.

It is common knowledge that the per-person efficiency ratio is lowered the more people one employs, simply because it takes so much more time to communicate and take care of the mandatory administrative tasks required from an employer.

But fewer people know how this slowdown influences the top executive of the company more than anyone else.

Every additional person you hire will "rob" a few minutes from your working day, in other words.

Yet YOU are the top expert, the one person with the ultimate skills and expertise to bring home the bacon.

YOUR input is the most vital one for performing those 20% of actions that produce the bulk of income for the company.

Of course, you NEED professionals in your team to get all the work done.

But on the other hand, the more you hire the more YOU are pulled into those tasks that do not directly bring income or profits.

The answer can lie in outsourcing the nonessential functions.


To outsource or not to outsource: The outsourcing suitability formula

Why take unnecessary headaches when you can save money and time by outsourcing?There are certain basic rules that tell you whether or not your business activity would benefit from outsourcing any given task.

The basic rule is that if the task belongs to the 80% of activities that do not directly bring income AND the activity in itself does not directly impact on your customers' buying experience then outsourcing THAT task will benefit your business efficiency.

You can achieve many benefits by outsourcing exactly the correct functions. These benefits come mainly in form of increased efficiency and savings on overheads and costs.

There's an article about this on the site, called "How to use outsourcing to increase your efficiency and profits."

I recommend spending a few minutes to obtain this information as it could well save you thousands every year while freeing up a lot of time and resources for the more essential tasks!

But to cut to the chase, let me explain which tasks you should NOT consider outsourcing. These involve your selling and product / service delivery and the supervision of these.

These tasks benefit from being handled within your company by skilled team members.

But then there are tasks which are best outsourced, such as bookkeeping, payroll, accounting, or even secretarial services.

With these tasks you can gain substantial benefits by changing over to business-to-business cooperation where only the hard values count.


Outsourcing the right tasks will empower you

More time, more efficiency and increased productivity at lower cost.The need for outsourcing bookkeeping, payroll, and accounting functions was born out of necessity.

To stay ahead in the game, today's economy demands price-awareness, cost-cutting and, above all, ways to increase efficiency of every task performed in a business.

Outsourcing solutions on bookkeeping, payroll, accounting, training, and secretarial services are based on more advantageous terms than what you can expect as the employer.

With outsourcing services of Bookkeepers Plus Inc. you deal with a vendor, a business partner who commits into performing a job at set cost and to agreed standards.

A lot of new & useful information for the taking in the articles on outsourcing, all in understandable terms

Learn about clever and selective outsourcing.This web site offers a lot of free information on the various aspects of outsourcing.

In these articles we aim to show WHICH tasks benefit from outsourcing, WHY this is so, what RESULTS or improvements you should expect from outsourcing these functions and how to find out for free what this would mean for YOUR company in particular.

While it is true that we deliver these outsourcing services, these articles will give you useful insight into the many advantages of modern outsourcing solutions on bookkeeping, payroll, accounting, and other nonessential back office tasks.

Outsourcing cuts your costs.

Outsourcing lowers your risk significantly.

Outsourcing frees your attention, time, and resources for more essential tasks in the company.

And what's perhaps most important of all, outsourcing can increase the EFFICIENCY of your company and speed up its cashflow considerably.

Granted, you need to choose carefully what to outsource and to whom. We hope the information on this web site will help you do so.

But once that's done, I believe that it may surprise you just how great the advantages can be for your business from selective and clever outsourcing.

For instance, did you know that many businesses lose a full MONTH every year due to the fact that most employees do not know how to perform basic tasks with their office software applications the simplest way?

Or that most companies pay 50-60% MORE for having their accountant or CPA perform tasks that could be done by a qualified bookkeeper at a much lower rate AND so that your year end filing would go smoother?

Equally amazing is that most who use QuickBooks accounting software have some mistake in its installation and / or accounts, which is why they don't trust the figures it produces... and it could all be fixed very quickly.

Similarly, did you know you could make financial decisions far easier and more accurately by having the seven key financial reports monitored on monthly basis... and all without having to change your accountant or CPA?

There are quite a few such pearls hidden on this web site and its articles... so please, bookmark us now and subscribe to the Bookkeepers Plus Outsourcing Report free of charge.
