Accounting is a Thermometer of Business. As the thermometer indicates your
health status, Accounting is indicator of Business Health. You may even call it a
Business Report Card which basically conveys how much profit you have made
and what are your assets and liabilities.

                                             Accounting consists of Book Keeping
                                             and Financial Reporting. Book
                                             Keeping involves recording of
                                             income, expenditure, assets &
                                             liabilities in a structured manner and
                                             reporting involves preparation of
                                             financial statements like balance
                                             sheet, profit & loss account and cash
                                             flow.

As the business became multidimensional, multinational, multi location,
accounting got complicated and various concepts like accrual basis, revenue
recognition, assets valuation, exchange fluctuation, depreciation, holding
company, subsidiaries, listed company, impairment of assets etc. emerged. The
simple accounting concept of conservativeness, debits and credits gave way to
accounting jargons and accounting standards. If everyone has stuck to the basic
principle of book keeping and accounts, we would have been spared with the
complicated accounting standards, running in to thousands of pages.

Accounting has become very complicated and needs to be handled by experts
who are up to date with Accounting Standards, Tax Laws & Corporate Laws. Users
of the Financial Reports of the Company are share holders, investors, tax
authorities, financial analysts, stock exchange regulators, Banks, Creditors etc.

Accounting and Book Keeping can be done in house by company or can be
outsourced to third party specialized in this area and having domain knowledge.
Financial Process Outsourcing (FPO) is gaining immense popularity and covers
Accounting and Book Keeping, Accounts Payable & Receivable Management,
Financial Reporting, Payroll Management & Tax services. Technology has
rendered the offshore FPO feasible and cost effective.

Outsourcing should be by choice and not by compulsion. Some of the pre-
requisite for FPO are:

   •     Cost Benefit Analysis.
   •     Proper selection of FPO partners.
   •     Detailed SLA with well defined responsibilities and deliverable.
   •     Agreeing and documenting the process flow and date charts.
   •     Define communication and escalation protocol.

Accounting services in India has emerged as a most preferred FPO/ Finance and
Accounting Outsourcing (FAO) destination and scores over other for the following
reasons:

   •     Good infrastructure and broad band connectivity.

         Substantial cost benefit.
   •     High quality output & productivity.
