Yes! We outsource too and have become an ideal Essential PA client!
We’ll bet that you recognise some of the symptoms here.
- working long hours
- keeping all the plates spinning
- managing growth
- developing new ideas and long term strategies
- wearing all the hats
- the finance hat
- the sales hat
- the marketing hat
- the operations hat
- the recruitment and team care hat
- the customer care and client liaison hat
As a business owner you do end up doing all of the above and as your business grows you manage each task a little less well.
So, we do practice what we preach and have now outsourced our purchase ledger to one of the EPA team and thank goodness we did! And, since we made that decision we’ve given her more and more to do. Why?
- Because we don’t have the skills in house for VAT returns
- Because we don’t have the skills in house for matching all inputs and outputs
- Because we don’t have the time
- Because we can now focus on other critical tasks that we do have the skills for
- Because the tasks will be carried out quickly by someone who knows their way around the online accounting system
- Because it makes good business sense
That’s all folks!
