The global finance and accounting outsourcing market is projected to reach $53.4 billion by 2026

The accounting outsourcing service represents a crucial function in the overall finance and accounting market. The global economic crisis is expected to boost the demand for F&A BPO activities due to the less need for customization of the service when the process and the technology are outsourced (vs. customer care and HR-BPO). The growing demand for transparency and stricter regulations are driving companies to standardize their F&A (Finance and Accounting) BPO activities. The trend toward standardization is also driving the incorporation of financial management best practices, which is a key driver for the adoption of F&A BPO services.

The regulated nature of many F&A standards allows BPO service providers to provide a common platform for diverse clients, reducing customization, improving margins and allowing clients to benefit from economies of scale. The number of new companies starting accounting outsourcing each year has been steadily increasing, while older clients’ service contracts have also been extending for outsourcing companies. In the future, outsourcing service providers would increasingly use advanced technologies such as machine automation and artificial intelligence to speed up tasks and increase productivity for customers. The finance and accounting outsourcing space is witnessing an urgent need for vendors to move from archaic pricing models to automation initiatives to stay relevant and ensure service contract renewals.
