Maintaining timely and accurate financial records is one of the most important responsibilities facing every nonprofit organization today.  But doing it right is time-consuming, and the rules are complicated.  As a nonprofit organization, managing your financial accounts is a greater challenge than it is for many other types of small businesses. You have regulations and requirements that for-profit businesses don’t. 


There are many reasons why nonprofit organizations outsource their accounting function.  The one most cited by top managers of fast-growth organizations is being able to focus on the mission, programs, and fundraising while having the assurance that finances are being competently managed.


Additional reasons include employee turnover, audit issues, and inadequate accounting technology.  Outsourcing is not only more efficient, but it is more cost effective, especially when comparing to all costs involved in paying, training and housing employees.
