Is it Time to Consider Outsourcing Your Veterinary Practice’s Accounting?

As the owner of a veterinary practice you have always loved seeing and treating your patients, but there isn’t much love for all of the time you spend doing paperwork and bookkeeping. After all, that isn’t why you went to vet school, and the pandemic has only added to your challenges and the amount of work on your plate.

In the early years of your practice, you may have attempted to handle your own bookkeeping out of practicality and in the hopes to save money. While this may be true in the short-term, the time invested, and the likelihood of errors can end up costing far more in the long-run than it would be to outsource these tasks to an expert.

If you’re feeling stressed, overwhelmed and seeing fewer patients than you’d like to it’s time to consider outsourcing your practice’s accounting tasks to a professional. By doing so you can save money, ensure accurate records, and make more informed decisions about your business. This can translate into spending more time doing what you love – treating and providing excellent service to your patients and less time on the minutia.

Outsourcing can have many advantages for you and your practice such as:

  • Cost savings – You won’t need to pay for employee benefits, payroll taxes, hiring and training costs.
  • Increasing Profit – You can concentrate on your practice and growing your practice. You will also spend time with customers for better service while also minimizing risk.
  • Experience – You get proven, certified bookkeepers that you can rely on and access to experienced CPAs with a wide breadth of industry knowledge.
  • Support – You have experts that can help whenever questions arise.
  • Flexibility – When you need assistance with a few or all of your accounting tasks.
  • Peace of mind – knowing that your books are in order and you cash flow is being expertly managed.

Perhaps you are already doing what so many other practice owners are doing and outsourcing roles such as IT and/or human resources to industry experts. Doesn’t it make sense to outsource such a business critical role as your practice finances to experts who specialize in veterinarian finances? With our world becoming more virtual with each passing day it makes good sense to move to a virtual bookkeeping and/or CFO solution sooner rather than later.

Why is all of this important? A financially healthy vet practice allows for a strong personal financial plan for YOU that includes aggressive saving in preparation for retirement.
