I started working at my parent's business several years ago, and it really paid off down the road when experience started to come in handy. This blog is here to help you to build a better business, keep your employees employed, and to impress your customers each and every single day you keep the doors open.

3 Reasons Your Small Business Should Contract With An Accounting Staffing Company

Dennis Jenkins

Financial records, or books, are vital for any size business, but they are essential for a small business. When you are small, your bottom line often determines many different aspects of your business. Some of these include how much inventory you can afford to carry, how quickly you can expand, and who you can hire. One of the most critical members of your small team is your accountant. But how do you find a good one? Consider contracting with an accounting staffing company. There are many benefits to doing so. 

1. Prescreening

If you are busy running your company, the last thing you have time to do is hire for such an important position within your company. Unfortunately, even after you post the position, collect applications, and schedule interviews in this job market, you often find your qualified applicants don't show up for the interviews. 

Even when they show up, you sometimes find that they have exaggerated their skill levels and are not good fits for your company. When you hire through an accounting career staffing agency, they will prescreen any employee they send you. Not only will you be assured of the candidate's arrival, but the agency has already ensured they are qualified for the position.

This prescreening will save you time and effort. The employee will be ready to work as soon as they walk through the door. 

2.  Expediency

Depending on your business type, the hiring process can sometimes be a lengthy, drawn-out procedure. When someone is dealing with your books, you want to ensure that they are not only qualified but that they have integrity and are not going to harm your business in any way.

Anyone dealing with your finances should have their references checked, a full criminal records check performed, and be fingerprinted. Unfortunately, these steps often take time that you do not have.

An accounting career staffing agency will perform all the hiring steps for you. You will not have to wait for all this information to come back while you struggle without staff. Most of the time, you will only be required to sign off on their timesheet weekly. 

3.  Flexibility

Do you only need extra help in your accounting department for tax season or during a high production time? Do you need more than one staff member to perform specific tasks? Accounting career staffing agencies can send you exactly what you need for the time they are required. You can contract for just that period of time.

The beauty is the employees will know the exact duration of their assignment. There will be no hard feelings when they are no longer needed.
