Outsourcing bookkeeping, annual accounts and accounting have become a more modern solution for small & medium-sized businesses today. Why? Because small businesses realise that as they grow, they can no longer find time to overlook every aspect of their business, as their time is better suited towards focusing on the main segments of their company, so their time can be used more productively and efficiently. When a business needs to be involved in more than just bookkeeping & VAT and can’t complete the other services due to a lack of knowledge or time, this is when most businesses would consider outsourcing to an accountant to grant them more time to focus on the growth of their business.
Cost Savings Outsourcing your accounting can help you save costs from hiring employees who tend to be less experienced than an accounting firm. In house-staff tend to work full time which would cost you more to cover their wage than you would pay for an accountant to manage your accounts and accounting services. At Alan Patient & Co, our first consultation is absolutely free, which allows you to ask any questions or queries that you may have. Our accountants would be more than happy to meet at your convenience whether that would be in our office or over networking platforms such as zoom.
Time Savings Time is a very precious key aspect to many business owners; owners tend to undertake and juggle many different roles at the same time to keep their business alive and ongoing. Accounting can take a lot of time to complete, especially if you’re new to the financial sector and are unsure whether you have filled all reports to the standard enforced by HMRC by meeting all deadlines to avoid paying late penalty fines. Additionally, choosing to outsource your work, can lead to saving you the time of finding & recruiting in house staff with the correct qualifications and experience to take on this role. We offer all services to cover all your accounting needs from fulfilling your payroll, to completing your annual accounts, and much more, to relieve the stress from you. A full detailed list of all our services can be found here
Management Of All Deadlines When you choose to outsource your accounts to an accountant, essentially you are trusting and relying on that the accountant will be meeting all requirements, and making sure all reports are filed on time. An Accountant would be very familiar with the standards needed, as most accountants have had plenty of experience with many years working in this field, with many having worked in accountancy for several decades – well here at Alan Patient & Co we have!
Less Stress Outsourcing to an accountant can make you feel less stressed as you now, no longer need to worry about your accounting. Many business owners are stressed & paranoid regarding whether they have met all deadlines, have their work been submitted to the appropriate standards, have left or missed anything out and much more, the list could go on and on. These questions would be abolished from your mind, as you can now focus on running your business – as you are an expert in your industry, we are the experts in Accountancy.

Up To Date Accountants have plenty of experience working with businesses in many different sectors, meaning their expertise would be very broad as their knowledge of the profession would be very high. Accountants are passionate in their field of expertise, and they take the time to understand new laws being put in place, and what this would mean for different businesses, and an overview of how these changes would affect their clients or how they can benefit from them.

Reliability Hiring an employee to look after your accounts may seem more convenient to you, however as life goes on, things may change such as your employee may need to take time off work for Annual Leave, Maternity Leave, Surgery Recovery, Personal Issues etc. Some of these things cannot be controlled, as time may need to be taken off from work with little to no notice at all, leading to nobody being available as a replacement. An accounting business would have multiple accountants who are available to work most days each year, and a replacement is always available if your dedicated accountant is unable to complete your accounts as they have gone on holiday or have left their workplace for example. If you would like to get in contact with us, please call us on 020 3872 2574 or head over to our website to fill out our submission form and one of our accountants would be in touch very soon!
