2. How much do accounting or bookkeeping services cost in Malaysia?

The cost for quality accounting or bookkeeping services in Malaysia will depend on several factors, including the scope of the service, the number of monthly accounting transactions, the scale of your business and subsidiaries, and whether your business requires additional needs such support for accounts auditing.

In Malaysia, accounting services typically range from RM 1300 – RM 2600 depending on the provider. As with many business services, cheaper options may have lower upfront costs due to reduced scope, but can end up being more expensive in the long run if your business needs become increasingly more complex. You could potentially be opening up your company to risk factors and penalties for non-compliance with cheaper alternatives with reduced scope of work.

3. What does a bookkeeping company do?

A bookkeeper is an outsourced accountant that you hire to manage your financial statements and provide you with accurate, up to date financial information regarding your business and its financial health.

A reputable bookkeeping company offers tax strategy, preparation, and filing services. This will  often extend into payroll processing, account reconciliations, financial strategising and other accounting services.

4. Why should you outsource your accounting?

Outsourcing your accounting offers you the chance to remove the burden of complex and operational financial matters on your in-house team. By outsourcing to an accounting service provider, your in-house finance teams will have more time to focus on matters that need their direct attention. An experienced accounting firm can also help to provide invaluable financial advice which guarantees the success of your business.

Accounting outsourcing is also a stable and secure way to keep your books in order when going through a period of growth and expansion without the need to increase additional headcount thus saving costs for the business.

5. What are the factors to consider when outsourcing accounting?

There are several factors to consider, namely the expertise, trustworthiness and transparency of the outsourcing provider. As the information provided and managed by the third party provider is sensitive in nature, your outsourcing accounting partner must be able to manage your accounts professionally and with integrity. As your partners in success, the accounting company must also have the expertise to handle the most complex situations, and to grow and adapt alongside your business.

Communication should also be a key factor for consideration. When outsourcing to a team of third-party accountants, it is essential that good communication and transparency is maintained between both parties to ensure streamlined passing of information. This helps to reduce risk and errors when processing your financial statements.

6. Why do businesses need accurate bookkeeping?

Accurate bookkeeping is essential for business owners to monitor corporate finances and to generate accurate business reports like profit and loss statements, balance sheets etc. This allows business owners to make informed financial decisions and ensure that your business remains compliant with all accounting and tax regulations whilst being financially secure.
