Course Description

RECOMMEND TO EVERY CPA FIRM, ACCOUNTING PRACTICE, TAX FIRM & SMALL & MIDSIZE FIRMS.

Staffing is and always has been the #1 challenge in the accounting industry, the AICPA PCPS Survey 2019 confirms this. The BIG 4 & Larger Accounting Firms realized this in the early 90s and leveraged offshore staffing for acquiring & retaining qualified and experienced professionals in emerging economies. With rapidly progressing technological advancements, this strategy reaped great rewards and continues to do so. However, small, mid-size & regional accounting firms couldn’t follow their footsteps and haven't been able to reap similar benefits. In this free CPE Webinar you will learn how small and mid-size accounting can leverage offshore staffing. Benefits of Offshore Staffing:

  • Hourly wage ranges from $9 to $14/hour.
  • Flexible weekly hiring options of 10 | 20 | 30 | 40 hours/week or OnDemand Hiring.
  • No payroll taxes, no compliance, no benefits/health insurance, no infrastructure costs, no overheads
  • Hire as per your Needs - (Shortlist from pre-screened resumes, interview, test and hire)
  • No recruitment fee or upfront fee | Flat and transparent pricing | No long-term commitments
  • Tax Season only hiring
