– Reasons to Outsource Accounting –
A 2018 survey conducted by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners found that internal control weaknesses were responsible for nearly half of frauds. Small organizations (less than 100 employees) experienced the greatest percentage of fraud and suffered the largest median loss when compared to larger organizations. This could be due to the fact that larger entities typically have more resources to invest in their internal controls and anti-fraud programs. For smaller businesses, the internal control may just be the owner overseeing everything themselves. Making just one change to your business structure could greatly lower the chance of experiencing theft losses. That one change is to outsource your accounting. By outsourcing your business’ accounting, you improve your segregation of duties, receive timely financials, and can spend more time focusing on the business, all at a cost that won’t break the bank.
Just as the government has checks and balances, so should your business. Segregation of duties ensures that at least two individuals are responsible for separate parts of any task. This reduces your risk for fraud as it prevents any single person from having too much power.
