Intriguing idea Ozzie – I think you may have been talking to my boss!

Most of our admin staff have a reasonable level of proficiency with QuickBooks – so he had the ideaof internally ‘outsourcing’ the bookkeeping work from our accounting clients to these staff members.

It works great – it doesn’t take much to recover the overhead costs, the admin staff learn new skills and the clients actually get better quality and more accurate and timely reporting as the work is supervised by their own qualified accountant.

Lessoned learned – always try to look at your business from every possible angle and look for improvements.
