During the festive season, many Australian accounting firms have closed and not work on their compliance jobs. In order to reduce the burden of deadlines after the holiday, Australian accounting firms can choose a better solution: outsourcing. Indeed, most of outsourcing firms in Asia countries like Vietnam still process work during the Christmas and New Year season.
However, it is critical to choose an outsourcing partner that helps you to yield the best efficiency. So, what are the criteria you should consider to choose a right outsourcing partner?
Australian Accountants: Do you truly maximize your cost efficiency when employing outsourcing?
Many accounting firms are concerned about the cost of outsourcing. They may employ offshore teams from the Philippines or India, as the labor is cheap. But cost saving doesn’t mean cost effective.
