Course Description

With globalization and the significant presence of American accounting firms and companies offshore, what are your clients’ actually thinking about offshoring? For 25 years accounting firms across the globe have already been utilizing resources offshore.  With remote work more prevalent in the industry has made the offshoring concept widely accepted. We will discuss this concern from experience, statistics and case studies, of how it relates to your clients and onshore teams’ perception of offshoring work. The benefits outweigh the cons but how do you explain the rationale with stigma towards offshoring?   With staffing shortages in the accounting industry becoming widespread firms are “thinking outside the box” in finding solutions.
