Accounting Services: What They Are & How to Pick One for Your Optometry Business

Outsourced accounting services can reduce your practices’ strain caused by handling your own business finances. Small practices often attempt to minimize expenses by performing bookkeeping and payroll tasks within the company, but this can be more costly if you and your staff are ill-equipped to perform these financial tasks.

You might find that professional accountants can handle your bookkeeping, payroll, and tax responsibilities more quickly and accurately than your business could do on their own, making it better for your bottom line to outsource these tasks.

Bookkeeping Services

Keeping track of your expenses and revenues is one of the most important, and tedious, aspects of business accounting. You’ll use the information when you file taxes, generate financial reports, and plan your budgets.

A cloud-based bookkeeping service can allow you to outsource this work to professionals who will handle day-to-day accounting tasks.

Payroll Services

Hiring employees for your practice is rewarding, but it introduces the headache of handling payroll. Besides simply procuring paychecks and documenting the cost of retaining employees, you have to worry about leveraging deductions, paying payroll taxes, complying with payroll law, and making year-end documentation.

Outsourcing your payroll services can be a cost-effective way to keep your staff and taxes paid and your expenses properly documented without investing in your own payroll system.

Tax Services

The best way to lessen your tax burden is to employ year-round, comprehensive tax planning procedures. Chances are, your practice doesn’t have the time or the expertise to implement the tax planning that can help you take advantage of major tax deductions while staying on the IRS’s good side.

That’s where accounting outsourcing can help. Small business tax accountants can create a personalized tax plan that highlights areas for savings and make filing taxes easy next spring.  

Assess Your Business

To decide which accounting services would best help your business, you should start by looking for inefficiencies in your current business operations. Which accounting tasks do you and your employees find the hardest to complete? What tasks draw you away from your patients and the optometry services you do best?

If you’ve had trouble with inaccuracies in the past, such as finding errors in your expense reports or making payroll mistakes, you might decide to outsource those tasks to a professional accounting firm.

Some tasks place undue mental strain on the professionals at your practice. If you’re asking your optometrists to handle accounting tasks that they’re unprepared or ill-suited to complete, you could be inadvertently causing job dissatisfaction and distress. Outsourcing can keep your employees happy and productive.
