It’s easy to think of an accountant as someone who goes through your accounts, tallies everything up and manages the associated paperwork. This is of course an essential part of the role, but if this is all your current accountant does, they’re not adding anything proactive to the business. 
Put another way, an accountant that looks at what you’ve spent is a history teacher. But what about an accountant who uses this same information to help you improve your finances long-term? Well, that's a pathfinder.  
A pathfinder will monitor the performance of your business, identify opportunities for growth, enhance financial discipline, and ensure compliance in every respect, all while saving you time and money. The question is, do you want your accountant to add genuine value to your daily operations? If so, our outsourced finance department service could be the right fit for your business. 

What does outsourcing achieve? 

Our outsourced finance department, which we also sometimes refer to as "full finance function", will bring multiple benefits to your business. Below are some of the problems faced by business owners who approach us about this service, all of which can be solved in one fell swoop. 
Your business needs to reduce costs and save money in a practical way. 
Financial planning, budgeting and forecasting take too long or are not in place. 
Some or all of your tax returns are late, resulting in fines and interest being applied. 
Payroll has become complicated and staff may not always be paid on time. 
Some of your clients pay their bills late or not at all. 
Inconsistent or incorrect tax returns are increasing the likelihood of HMRC auditing your business. 
You’re finding it hard to keep track of changes in tax schemes and legislation, which poses a risk to your business when it comes to maintaining best practice. 
You want your finances to work in line with short-term goals and a long-term mission. 
Positive change is proving difficult to achieve consistently and effectively, so you need someone who knows how to make it happen. 

What does an outsourced finance department do? 

Imagine all of the things that need to be done in order to keep your business financially stable, compliant and profitable.

That's exactly what you get when you choose TreyBridge Accountants for outsourced finance department services.

Business advisory 

One of the USPs of an outsourced finance department that sets it apart from the average accountant’s role is in-depth business advisory.  
When you choose TreyBridge Accountants, you don’t get a yes-man who agrees with absolutely everything you say, as that will get you nowhere. Instead, we’ll listen to your ideas and goals and then offer practical advice to help make them happen.  
We don’t just fix administrative problems - we also safeguard you against those that may arise in the future. We don’t simply keep on top of your finances - we create detailed strategies that enable them to thrive. 

Company secretarial 

If you really want to go above and beyond as a business, we also recommend our company secretarial service, which involves analysing your current governance system and finding ways to improve it. This includes simplifying the language surrounding legal requirements, performing security checks against fraudulent activity within the company, and actively helping you to understand how to achieve business growth in a sustainable way.
