Is It Worth It to Outsource Small Business Accounting and Payroll With a Local Firm Instead of a National Provider?

Aug 16, 2021 1:06:08 PM / by CSI Accounting Staff posted in small business taxes, small business payroll, small business accounting

When you run a small business, you're usually working with a tight budget. This means that many small businesses tend to purchase supplies and services from large, national providers, even when they want to support their fellow small businesses.

Often, it's a misconception that national providers cost less than small businesses - or if they do, they certainly don't give you the same bang for your buck. We're here to walk you through the differences between the cost and value of larger companies versus small businesses when it comes to outsourcing your financial activities, such as accounting and payroll.

Outsourcing Accounting

New Call-to-action

When you outsource accounting, there's plenty of room to interpret the level of service you'll receive. Sometimes the big guys can cost less, but often times small business owners will switch to local firms like CSI Accounting & Payroll for the following reasons:

  • They feel as though they lack customer support.
  • They have little to no communication.
  • They don't receive enough (or any) tax planning or money-saving benefits to cut costs.
  • They find that annual statements aren't enough to guide their financial decisions.

Outsourcing Payroll

Outsourcing payroll for your small business is a slightly different story. It leaves a lot less room to interpret the level of service you'll receive, although there are still big differences in the quality of customer service and the accessibility of reports and portals. Not to mention, our payroll pricing is similar to the national firms' payroll pricing. CSI Accounting & Payroll offers:

  • Payroll management options

  • Accessible reports
