These days everyone is hiring an outsourced accountant to handle all or the major financial processes. Due to increases in the trend of hiring virtual accountants to perform daily tasks, a lot of inexperienced accountants are also starting to make fake portfolios to attract clients. No doubt, when they hire such an accountant, they end of having a bitter experience. In many cases, clients stop looking for outsourcing firms and hire an in-house and end up paying a lot more.
There are some aspects that should be considered while hiring any outsourced accountant or an outsourcing bookkeeping firm. If the candidate/organisation employs the best techniques or certain protocols, then you should definitely give them a go. Some of the factors that need to be taken into consideration are as follows:
- Safety and Security of data – by setting-up dedicated secured servers for the transmission of data from one place to another
- Genuine Portfolio – always ask for their previous work or sample reports.
- Ask Questions – Always ask them questions about their expertise or about any general issue that you might be encountering during bookkeeping and financial management.
- FREE DEMO – Always ask for a FREE DEMO of services. If they are willing to provide you a FREE DEMO of their services, they are genuine enough to deal with any volume of data for a particular activity you might want to hire them for.
- Effective Communication – If they understand you and you understand them, then it is best to hire those bookkeepers.
- Knowledge – If they have the knowledge and the expertise, you’ll know about it from the start. Observe them. Check their ability to pay attention to details.
If you take into consideration these aspects, you will never get disappointed because the bookkeeper who will pass through all these tests is going to serve you well.
