The following tips need to be followed while selecting the outsourcing accounting service provider:  

Pricing- Selecting the outsourcing firm which offers the right price is the first and foremost step. The outsourcing firms based in nations like India etc. generally offer their services at competitive prices. It is up to the higher management of a firm to decide what prices suit them according to their budget. Basically the cost of outsourcing should be less than the cost of hiring in-house staff.  

Proficiency of the team- Before hiring the services of an outsourcing firm, you have to judge the proficiency levels of their staff. You have to make sure that they are capable of performing the accounting tasks which you are looking to assign.   

Carefully check the service agreement- When a firm enters in to an agreement with an outsourcing firm,   they must carefully go through the terms of contract. If the terms and conditions suit them only then they should finalize the contract.  

Flexibility- While undertaking outsourcing services, the flexibility factor must be kept in mind. There is always a chance of work requirements changing over a period of time. So the outsourcing company must have a flexible approach with regards to approaching client demands.  

Communication- Firms based in countries like US, UK etc. generally outsource accounting tasks to countries like India because English is used as official language. Communication is an important factor in the outsourcing process as the third party must be completely aware about the requirements and expectations of the clients.    

Access to the latest software- The third party firm should have access to the latest software like QuickBooks, NetSuite etc. used for performing the accounting operations. This factor must be checked in advance.

By keeping in mind all the above mentioned factors, a business firm can select the right outsourcing company.
