FMN - 2022/March, Seg 2 - The World of Accounting Outsourcing

Accounting outsourcing services, often provided by CPA firms, accounting and financial professionals and consulting firms, have been around for a while and have gained more popularity in the last two years. This was a trickle down effect of the pandemic and the great resignation. Small and medium enterprises found themselves unable to manage their day-to-day workload as they were left with minimal to no staff, or staff filling unfamiliar roles and tasks. Jason Pourakis, partner, accounting and advisory service line leader, and Marine Rollinger, partner, accounting outsourcing services practice leader, at Mazars USA, discuss the world of accounting outsourcing.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the meaning of accounting outsourcing and the types of services provided;
  • Recognize the advantages of using accounting outsourcing for privately held and publicly traded companies;
  • Identify ways risk is reduced by the use of outsourcing; and
  • Identify some of the important considerations when choosing a firm to outsource your books.

Prerequisites/Advanced Preparation:

Work experience in financial reporting or accounting, or an introductory course in accounting.
