Are you considering hiring a finance team or restructuring your existing finance team? Many SMEs and even MNCs are opting to outsource their finance functions, or parts of it.

A full-fledged finance team typically performs two crucial functions—ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements for financial reporting (e.g. Singapore’s Companies Act, ACRA and IRAS requirements), and providing relevant and accurate financial information that facilitates informed decision-making. By performing these functions efficiently, finance teams can add value to the business and help drive its success.

However, outsourcing certain finance functions has become a popular choice for businesses. Outsourcing can provide cost-effective solutions, access to specialised expertise, flexibility, and scalability, allowing businesses to focus on their core competencies while still maintaining compliance and gaining valuable financial insights.
