How much does it cost to hire a bookkeeper? How much does it cost to hire an accountant? If you own a business, you know it’s more than just the cost of hiring or their salaries, but also the additional costs of just having an employee.
Building an accounting team for your business can be both costly and challenging.
Small and mid-sized businesses financial operations may consist of anywhere from one to 2 or 5 employees, each with different roles. Depending on the size and stage of your business, you may need to employ a full accounting department with roles such as staff accountant, bookkeeper, accounting manager and a CFO.
When you consider the cost of building an accounting department—wages or salaries, plus cost of providing benefits, IT, overheads, and overtime—these additional costs add up.
Many businesses are transitioning to outsourced bookkeeping and accounting services as a more cost-effective, efficient, and viable alternative to in-house accounting.
