Why Outsourcing

For small or medium businesses maintaining up-to-date bookkeeping is probably the most important part of the daily routine. The establishment of an accounting division, hiring and training book-keeping personnel and buying book-keeping software is costly.

Outsourcing book-keeping services to Cognition eliminates the need and overhead of a Finance and Accounting team, bringing typical cost efficiencies of around 40% – 50%.

It’s not therefore surprising, 37% of companies are now outsourcing their finance and accounts processes.
