Accounting and Outsourcing

Business Process Outsourcing: The Competitive Advantage by Rick Click & Thomas Duening

Global competition doesn't just move jobs, it also moves business processes and creates new kinds of business cooperation. For more than a century companies with global reach had to grow into huge enterprises with massive internal infrastructure. With the rise of computer systems, smaller companies learned to share the large mainframes to lower the cost for each business. Specialized providers went into business to offer their systems and expertise so that businesses could focus on their value proposition rather than their information technology.

This outsourcing of non-core operations has expanded to many other kinds of business processes such as human resources and even some aspects of accounting. Some businesses are even creating new value propositions by combining their specialized abilities with those of another company in order for each to have a more powerful offering for their target markets. This is especially true as companies extend their reach around the globe.

Rick Click and Thomas Duening show you how this process works and what you need to do and consider so you can identify which processes you might want to outsource to lower your costs and extend your reach. While this is a practical introduction, it is meant for the general business person having to learn about BPO and having to get up to speed about what has to be done to get it right.

Accounting and Outsourcing * Quicken

Basic Accounting Primer   
Edward Singleton

<p>
Balance Sheet<p>
A balance sheet is a snapshot of the resources of a company, or its liabilities and equities.<p>
Income Statement<p>
An income statement is actually the breakdown of a company's operating activities. It lists the firm's revenue and expenses and the difference between them to show the income or loss over a period. It covers only the proceeds from goods and services.<p>
Cash Flow Statement<p>
A cash flow statement shows information about the company's cash inflows and outflows over a period of time. Unlike the income statement, this report shows cash transactions only.<p>
To help you with the different topics and terms here is a list of terms and their meanings:<p>
1. Ledger: A group of accounts.
2. General Equation for Accounting: Assets equals Liabilities plus Owner's Equity.
3. Assets: These are items owned by the business that have some value.
4. Liabilities: The debts of the business i.e. what it owes.
5. Owner's Equity: Net value of the business.
6. Expenses: Running costs of the business.
7. Credit: Amount logged on the right side of a T-account.
8. Debit: Amount logged on the left side of a T-account.
9. T-Account: A tool used to show the relationships between accounts and also to show debits and credits.<p>
If you are looking for accounting software, there are many programs to choose from. QuickBooks is one of the most popular programs on the market today. It is easy to set up and understand by the average individual. It can be configured to be as complex or easy as you need it. If you are using a Mac, you may want to try Goldenseal Software. There is also Peachtree; however, it is better suited for mid to larger-sized companies. You can also save money by downloading programs such as Quicken.<p>
There are good online reviews of Intuit's Quicken 2007 Deluxe and Quicken 2207 Premier. If you like Microsoft, you can try Microsoft Small Business Accounting 2007. For Windows operating systems, there is Money 2007 Deluxe, which falls just short of Quicken. This is a good choice if your bank only supports downloads in QFX format. It appears that Quicken is the leader in small business accounting software. If you use an older software program, you may want to see what's out there lately and try an upgrade, especially if your program is 3 years old or older. Developers stop supporting software after 3 years and you don't want to be left with a relic.<p>
I hope this article has helped you understand the language of basic accounting. It is not as hard as it first may seem. With a little knowledge and organization, you can take control of your accounting needs and be on the road to prosperity for you and your business.
