Hi Richard, have you tried using a recruitment agency for long-term positions? Odesk can be great but a lot of the time it's A) tough to find great people and B) tough to keep people around longterm as they are mostly freelancers

Even if you do the books yourself, at a minimum you should have a book keeper check the integrity of your figures every few months, so there are no major surprises at tax time. Such surprises could cost you and your accountant a lot more to sort out.

Thanks Allan for a great article highlighting the benefits and disadvantages of outsourcing. While outsourcing may not be for everyone, it's clear that communication is the key. For any partnership to work, both parties need to understand each other, be able to communicate clearly, be comfortable in asking questions and be available for each other when needed. Working as a VA, I've definitely found that the easiest and often more rewarding Client relationships I have are with great communicators!

I often find, outsourcing overseas is a huge change in mindset and everything. It will also increase your management time in the short term and lead to waste in resources too. Local outsourcing might be a better option for first time outsources, or have a middleman help you! Thanks for highlighting these key points, I've experienced most of these myself too :D
