Client Advantages

Numerous advantages to clients - Accounting Outsourcing

Indian Companies
• Specialised knowledge
• Continuity
• Transfer of Best Practices
• Obviate the need to hire long-term staff for short-term or seasonal needs
• Easier way to cope with seasonal peak loads and/or backlogs
• Arrangement Flexible/Terminable. No long-term commitment
• Better correlation between cost and benefit
• No hidden costs
• Administratively simple. Contractual arrangement. Employee relationships, on the other hand, bring several industrial regulations into play
Foreign Companies
All advantages as in case of Domestic Companies. Additionally; outsourcing will be significantly cheaper in case of foreign companies. Besides, in view of their lack of familiarity with local conditions; entrusting work to a professional accountancy firm provides greater assurance vis-à-vis entrusting it to an individual employee. Employee turnover creates loss of continuity and, more importantly, loss of accountability. Regulatory risks are better managed.

Actual Examples

There is no such thing as a typical client size. EM provide outsourced accounting and compliance services to organisations that range from quite small (small advertising company, a mid-size merchant exporter etc.) to very big (multinational pharmaceutical company, foreign bank, manufacturing company with thousands of employees, USD 100 million new plant etc.) The assignment sizes vary. Those range from "one-man" assignment to those that require 15- strong team, working full time. Illustrative examples of actual assignments are as follows.
