So how does BOSS increase your profit per accountant by 51%?
Essentially we supply you with experienced accountants that cost you 48% less per year than it would normally cost to employ an accountant. The accountants are trained by us and work in our office not yours, but unlike typical outsourcing firms, they work YOUR way using YOUR procedures. This ensures the quality of work is extremely high and completed exactly how you need it done! You maintain complete control — just as if they were your staff in the office next door! You can talk directly with your accountant and the supervisor and easily monitor how jobs are progressing. Queries can be dealt with quickly and easily. Our service offers unique benefits over outsourcing:
- We are Australian specialists – we can do any tax and super fund work you do and audit superfunds (so you can maintain profits regardless of the Cooper Review)
- Quality is assured – all work is reviewed by a supervisor
- Security is assured – data can remain in your office
- Your BOSS accountant is dedicated to only YOU.
Please take the time to read the whole article to learn the many benefits of using BOSS and the superior service we offer compared to typical outsourcing companies. Utilising staff offshore is not new but this business model is – we call it IN-Resourcing.
Increasing Your Profit
The example below is based on an Accountant with 5 years accounting experience (Sydney CBD salary figures).
|In-house Accountant||BOSS Accountant|
|salary||$76,000||$53,750 exc. GST|
|1% workers compensation||$830||–|
|office space (exc. gst)||$5,000||–|
|recruitment fee (15% fee spread over a 3 year tenureship)||$4,140||–|
|hours worked (assuming 4 weeks leave + 2 weeks public holiday)||1,748 (38 hour week)||2,105 (45 ¾ hour week)|
|gross profit (per annum)||$188,044||$284,371|
That’s a gross profit increase of 51%!
The above table may be a simplified version of in-house costs and I’m sure you can add to the list!
So now you should be seeing the pure profit potential of using BOSS accountants for your practice.
IN-Resourcing offers many advantages over typical outsourcing such as:
You can talk directly with your accountant and monitor how jobs are progressing online. Each BOSS accountant you have is dedicated to working YOUR way using YOUR systems and YOUR procedures. Usually the accountant logs in remotely to your IT system but even if documents are simply uploaded to our secure website, all work is done as if they were an in-house employee working in the next cubicle. This is very different to using outsourcing services where an accountant is typically serving many different companies, cannot log on to your server and you lose control over the data and the person who is working on it.
Data can remain in your office. You have the choice of your BOSS accountant logging in remotely or uploading work via our secure website. If our accountant logs in remotely no data need leave your office. Your IT technician can simply lock files that you don’t wish your BOSS accountant to have access to. With typical outsourcing this is not often an option.
Continuous Improvement and Higher Proficiency
Your BOSS dedicated accountant can be nurtured like your own staff so they get better and better! You can expect to have a BOSS accountant moving to the point at which jobs are completed ready for sign-off.
Typically in outsourcing it is common place to have your work given out to anybody that is available at the time. Which means the individuals cannot be “fine tuned” and you may find yourself repeating the same instructions or corrections again and again, ultimately leading to your time wasted, and jobs blowing out over time and over budget.
You get to learn the competencies of your BOSS accountant quickly and know what to expect when you submit work to them. Again, outsourcing companies typically farm off your work to whoever is available so you cannot expect any consistency in the work done.
A BOSS accountant contracted to you on a full or part-time basis can save you typically 44% – 55% compared to other specialist accounting outsourcing companies. In addition all work is reviewed by a BOSS manager before handing back to you – something that you would normally have to pay extra for if you engage an outsourcing firm.
Peace of Mind and Quality Assurance
All work is reviewed by a supervisor before it is announced ready. (Ordinarily you need to pay extra costs for this service with an outsourcing company)
