How Much Does It Cost to Outsource Accounting?

The Short Answer:

In 2024, the cost of hiring an outsourced accountant can vary from $500 per month to $10,000 per month, and it depends on a wide variety of factors that we explore below. For example, the price of a junior accountant will be lower than the price of a specialised senior accountant, and the price of a local Australian accountant will be higher than a qualified accountant from a global talent solution provider.

The Actual Answer:

Hiring an outsourced accountant for your firm is one of the fastest ways to increase client satisfaction and enhance efficiency. Outsourced accountants can complement your existing team and add additional flexible resources to help your firm overcome the industry-wide talent shortage. Yet, investigating the cost of adding an outsourced accountant to your team can seem overwhelming at first.
