Our Company has always operated with production accountants. Why would we outsource in whole or part?
Answer: Many companies have traditional functions, which where historically viewed as core (such as accounting and human resources), BUT they are not what you compete on. Often small companies find themselves dependant upon one person in a key area or perhaps because of personnel changes you no longer have that expertise. Production accounting staff turnover can be a significant cost in terms of personnel search, training and supervision.
