What are the advantages of outsourcing? 外包有什么好处?

As directors are responsible for the correct representation and accuracy of the information filed, it is often something that they or the business owner works on personally. However, the filing process can be time-consuming and daunting, taking up valuable time that could be spent on core business functions.
由于董事对所提交信息的正确表述和准确性负有责任,这通常是他们或企业所有者亲自处理的事情。然而,呈报过程可能耗时且令人望而生畏,会占用宝贵的时间,而这些时间可能会花在核心业务功能上。

Outsourcing the filing to a professional accounting services firm allows directors and business owners to allocate valuable resources to focus on their business.
将文件外包给专业的会计服务公司可以让董事和企业主分配宝贵的资源专注于他们的业务。

Outsourcing helps eliminate the hassle of figuring out how to use the online filing system, selecting the required information for disclosure, entering the information manually, and reviewing the financial statements.
