A company’s financial operations is one of the most crucial components when it comes to running a business smoothly. However, many companies are grappling with finance skills shortages and soaring costs to hire.
Offshoring finance processes or functions – in part or in full – provides businesses with access to skilled, qualified professionals from anywhere in the world.
Global resourcing firms like ConnectOS represent the new face of offshoring, specializing in sourcing and hand-selecting the right candidates to fit your needs.
How finance services offshoring works
Businesses can call on expert financial service providers to handle their needs when operations reach a new capacity or restructuring calls for different capability. Many companies tend to consider outsourcing aspects of their finance operations after experiencing a period of noteworthy growth.
Likewise, in today’s climate of scarce skills and economic instability, offshoring can help businesses reduce costs and increase productivity.
Instead of investing in the recruitment, onboarding and establishment costs of hiring new employees or investing internally, offshore resourcing solutions enable a remote team to handle the workload.
Any aspect of finance and accounting processes can be efficiently and seamlessly offshored – over the long term, for short-term projects or during periods when team capacity is stretched.
Offshored financial service teams function in the same way as a company’s internal financial team. They will follow the same cash flow processes, procedures, and company standards and practices.
Offshore employees have qualifications, accreditations and experience levels that align with onshore Certified Public Accountants (CPA) requirements.
Flexible offshore finance service providers will work with you to determine the scope of work, headcount and experience level to offshore.
The firm you choose will handle the recruitment, onboarding, security, technology, office space, HR and payroll. You’ll have full management control of your offshore employee’s day-to-day work.
