In the accounting industry, there’s a lot of offshoring going on. Offshoring wouldn’t be necessary if you can enable a U.S.-based person with the right technology, making them more effective and more useful. With the right technology, there should be no need to outsource this type of accounting work any longer.
The following is an excerpt from our webinar, “Automating Accounts Payable (AP): How Ignite Spot Accounting Services Automates AP, Removes Human Error, and Improves Client Services.”
Automating or outsourcing outside of the United States is something that is very important to understand. Depending on your state laws and the services your accounting firm is providing, there are a few states where if you don’t disclose that you’re outsourcing or using offshore services, you can get into some serious trouble.
If you don’t disclose that you’re offshoring, you could lose licenses or receive substantial fines.
Ignite Spot prides itself on being U.S.-based and having people available that understand client’s needs and are located within two to three hours of the client’s office, who can easily communicate with clients.
