Advantages of Outsourced Back Office Accounting

1. Process and Personnel Expertise

  • Outsourcing provides an opportunity to have a highly-qualified team who can serve the hotel in a fresh, uninhibited and very effective manner.
  • Most small to medium sized hotels cannot afford the quality financial staff. PKF-Nuobello are able to provide fully qualified senior Financial Controllers to oversee your hotel's back office operations.
  • Cloud based financial systems make it easy to process, send and store data securely in the cloud. No longer does your team need to be on-site working on a in house based system.

2. No Distraction for Employees

  • By outsourcing you have a more focused team of accountants who can perform their tasks well without day-to-day distractions that occur with an in-house team.
  • Focus generally leads to efficiency and reduced occurrence of errors.

3. Accounting Tools & Analysis

  • Outsourcing provides access to high tech accounting tools and hotel accounting experts able to provide detailed analysis of your financial data which lead to cost savings and revenue improvements.
  • Fully reconciled financials are provided on a timely basis, in a best practice format providing an ability for management to make timely, informed decisions about the business.

4. Cost Savings & Flexibility

  • There is no need to hire an internal back office team. No need to hire new staff and retrain them. Outsourcing removes these headaches and provides continuity of the accounting service.
  • Outsourcing provides flexibility to the hotel whether you are looking at upscaling or even downscaling. The hotel is not left with recruitment problems or dealing with unwanted staff following a downsizing/restructuring.
