Accounts is Child's Play

Accountants are often considered an odd lot. A good number of them scan through reams of papers, numbers, logbooks and so on. They are also odd men out because they literally control the company's money.

Accountants don't come cheap. They cannot be bargained and accounting work can't be outsourced. Right? Who else knows your company better than an accountant in your backyard. Again right? The answer is No. In this era of outsourcing where most things are done halfway around the world, accounting can't be immune to outsourcing.

Small businesses are now benefiting from a growing trend of outsourcing their bookkeeping to companies like Business Advisory Services (BAS). Based in Bangalore with offices in the U.S., Singapore and Australia, the company came into existence in its new form about one-and-half years back when a new set of promoters brought in Knowledge Process Outsourcing activity into a company which otherwise saw not much activity.

Working under the catchline ‘accountant to the world,’ “BAS has what it takes to be offshore accounting firm,” says Jayashree P. Kunju, President, BAS. “Bad production and financial management can wreck havoc with any company and that's where we come into the picture. I would always tell people-leave your accounting headache to us,” Kunju says.

Outsourcing some or all of their basic bookkeeping functions to a professional helps business owners avoid both inaccurate balances and employee “headaches” like help wanted ads, training costs, absenteeism. Outsourcing frees business owners to concentrate on building their businesses.
