Outsourced Management Accounting Services
Strategic insights for optimal business decision making and growth, delivered to you by our dedicated management accountants and financial experts.
This service is designed for business owners and company directors whose ambition is to grow their current operations in a planned and strategic manner to achieve sustainable success.
Management accounting gives companies financial intelligence to make data-driven, key business decisions. There comes a point in scaling company operations when business owners need the proper support of an accounting team (bookkeeping, management accountant, CFO), however they may not be big enough to set up an internal finance function.
Achieving growth without financial insights and expert guidance is difficult, and one of the key reasons SMEs fail to scale. You cannot grow your business and achieve profitability looking just at your cash balance and your sales alone, you need a comprehensive view of your business in a simple to understand monthly report. This is what we deliver.

Outsourced Management Accounting at Work
Digital Documents provides B2B information services and solutions to corporate clients and government agencies across Ireland. In business for 40 years, the company employs over 30 staff and holds ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 accreditations. All of Digital Documents finance activities had been managed by an in-house accounting team since company inception.
These activities included accounting, bookkeeping and payroll. However, when their finance person decided to move on to a new opportunity, the management of Digital Documents asked aperio to help ensure their finances stayed on track.
How aperio helped Digital Documents
aperio worked closely with Digital Documents management to take responsibility for all of the company finance activities in less than four weeks.
- 1.Worked with the finance person who was leaving to map out the existing day-to-day work.
- 2.Implemented new systems – Xero, Dext (Receipt Bank) and Collsoft – and streamlined finance processes for Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable.
- 3.Brought all bookkeeping and accounts up to date.
- 4.Trained Digital Documents staff on the new systems and improved processes.
- 5.Implemented a monthly management reporting pack including operational and financial KPIs and budget.
- 6.Scheduled monthly management review meetings to update the Digital Documents leadership team on performance across the business.
These changes had an immediate impact:
- Providing certainty that key finance tasks like payroll, payments and tax compliance continued uninterrupted
- Removed the dependence on a single in-house finance person to cover multiple activities
- Provided better, more accessible information on company performance
- Delivered more streamlined and robust finance processes across payroll, AR and AP
- Created a monthly forum and KPIs to track and discuss the financial performance of the business
