Frequently Asked Questions

Can I hire the whole team?

Yes. But first, you need to identify the requirements, which also includes realizing whether you have enough workload to keep the team occupied. We usually recommend taking a baby step and hiring one or two staff members, and if the requirement grows, you are free to scale up the team size whenever you want.

What are the benefits of offshore staffing?

We can divide it into short-term and long-term benefits. Sometimes firms sign up because of their tax season overflow – that’s a short-term benefit. However, offshore staffing is a way forward for your long term. It should be the core strategy of your firm, not just a one-time adventure. Like any local staff, a remote team also works under your management and fully reports to you. As they work from remote offshore offices, they can

  • Save on cost and effort.
  • Reduce HR hassles and several other compliance issues.
  • Focus more on advisory services.
What is an offshore staff? Where does the offshore staff work from?

Offshore staff is an employee who works for your firm under your management but from a location that is physically out of your office. This could be from anywhere – a different city or even from an overseas location. Our remote staff work from our remote offshore offices located in India.

How does it save 75% on labour costs?

Offshore staff are available for about a third of the conventional salary paid to the local staff. Besides, it does not require infrastructure development at your office due to remote working. There is no cost for recruitment or training costs involved. There is no liability for compliances, Medicare, or other benefits. Also, it is not required to pay bonuses or overtime charges. Hence overall, 75% saving on labour costs is just a conservative number, counting various direct or indirect benefits due to remote staffing.

When you hire remote staff, you will have to identify the requirements at your end. However, just like any local employee, remote staff can perform most of the tasks related to:

  1. Bookkeeping
  2. Monthly accounting
  3. Tax preparation
  4. Financial statements (review, audits, compilation tasks)
  5. Billing – bill payments, billing collection, follow-ups, and other administrative tasks
  6. Other office administrative tasks

In a nutshell, a remote staff performs most of the tasks that are done in a public accounting firm.

Are the staff aware of regulations such as US GAAP, IRS, etc.?

Yes, we usually hire only those candidates who have relevant experience in US GAAP, IRS, and other regulations. All the staff are trained in US accounting, tax code, and returns preparation in the US context. Local experience in the Indian accounting, tax, or financial industry is not counted. However, we let the clients interview and test each candidate and be assured of having the best person working for them.

What is your internal HR process? How do you identify a candidate and check their competency?

Our internal HR and hiring process is very rigorous so that we qualify as the best at the expectation of our clients.

  • We carefully screen the applicants’ resumes and conduct background/reference checks on the shortlisted candidates.
  • This is followed by technical and HR rounds of interviews.
  • There are other aptitude tests, too, which include typing speed and accuracy, English speaking and writing skills, and technical tests in relevant fields.

This is how we create our candidate pool before sharing the resumes with our potential clients. Apart from this, we have a signed agreement with each candidate which assures long-term association with us and a pledge to keep office data confidential.

Do I get to interview and check a candidate’s qualification, competency or experience before I hire?

Yes. Soon after the agreement signup, we provide the client with resumes of such candidates who match the criteria specified by him. Then, at the client’s preferred time, we arrange for video interviews (and online tests if required). This whole process is transparent and conducted to let our client choose the best person according to requirements.

Am I locked in with the agreement once I sign up?

No, we proceed with the interviews after signup. Here, you interview and test the candidate to check for their experience and qualifications before finally hiring. This can take at most 30 days. After this time, in an unlikely case, if you do not find any suitable candidates, you can inform us and ask to cancel the agreement.

How long does it take to have somebody on board and start working for me?

It takes anywhere between 7 to 30 days to get staff on board and start working for you. This time variance depends on the availability and the skillset required in a candidate as specified by a client.

Is there a minimum commitment period while hiring offshore staff?

No, there is no minimum commitment period for a particular staff. However, there is a minimum contract of one month of association in case of temporary and six months for a permanent hiring option. However, in an improbable event of a client not being willing to continue working with the selected staff, we replace him at a maximum notice period of 30 days. This does not involve any fees.

What are the hiring options?

We have a very flexible hiring model, and this works for all sizes of accounting firms. According to their requirement, the client specifies how long and how many hours per week he needs the staff for. There are many options to choose from, such as permanent, temporary, seasonal, full-time, part-time, etc.

What is the billing cycle?

We have a system of a weekly billing cycle.

What are the hourly rates?

Our hourly rates start at $9.99/hour depending upon a few factors

  • The requirement of skillset and experience level.
  • Hiring model.
What does ISO 27001 stand for?

ISO 27001:2013 is an internationally recognised information security standard published by the International Organization for Standardization. This certification is awarded to exclusive organisations that comply with the information security guidelines of ISO and strictly abide by it at all times. We have this certification along with ISO 9001 and GDPR.

What about reporting and controlling the staff that sits thousands of miles away?

We know direct control and reporting are of utmost importance, and that’s why we provide you with staff that work dedicatedly with you. For example, let’s say you hire staff for 20 hours/week part-time. Your staff will work only for you during the designated hours, report directly to you, and follow your firm’s policies and protocols. They are your employees by all means. They just work from our secure facilities in India.
