  Article Summary  
While outsourcing has been a very successful strategy for many years, there is greater appreciation for applying it to core functions that businesses have viewed as needing to be conducted internally.

An example can be found in the trend to outsource core finance functions related to areas like internal audits, general ledgers and reporting.

Reviewed in this article are two CFO.com articles that discuss accounting and finance outsourcing.

A major takeaway is that many senior finance leaders report they can add significantly greater strategic value to their companies if they are able to delegate recurring support functions to other qualified resources like outsourced professional financial services providers.

Executives interested in learning more about this strategy can benefit from talking with a provider of CFO services as a professional CFO brings the experience, expertise and bandwidth needed to identify finance functions that can be outsourced, help build a business case, and identify firms qualified to provide the services.
