Did you know that most small businesses owners spend 10 hours per week balancing their books? That equates to about 25% of a 40-hour work week spent on non-revenue generating or mission-related tasks. We know social impact executives often work longer hours than most but still - 10 hours is probably 9 hours too many don’t you think?
But are you ready to outsource your nonprofit accounting function?
How do you know when the time is right?
Ask yourself these questions:
Most nonprofit leaders were not born to be CFOs. Many social impact executives come from a marketing or fundraising background. The choice to hire an accounting firm can give marketing-minded executives piece of mind. It’s like bringing on the perfect business partner with complementary expertise. A ‘balanced’ partnership (accounting pun intended). ;)
