A YORKSHIRE accountancy firm has launched a new outsourcing service to help clients build virtual finance departments (VFD) - saving them both time and costs. 

Armstrong Watson provides outsourced VAT returns and bookkeeping as well as payroll, accounts management and finance director services.

Business Process Outsourcing will allow clients to focus on what is important to them, whilst they have a team of accountants looking after their finance function.

Guy Kerkvliet has been appointed as Head of Outsourcing and will lead the national department.

He said: “The VFD is an entirely cloud-based, tailored solution unique to each organisation’s needs, allowing business teams access from anywhere and at any time.

"With access to bespoke digital reports, we believe thiswill provide business leaders with crucial information to make strategic decisions, quicker and easier than ever before.”

Paul Dickson, Chief Executive and Managing Partner, added: “For many businesses, the pandemic has introduced new ways of working – including the need to make a move to automate some of their processes and outsource areas of their business such as their finance functions.   

“This new service line will ensure our clients have a VFD tailored to their needs, combining the latest technology with the support of experienced accountants.”
