seamless integration without the cost of in-HOUSE STAFF


We Make Sense for Many Situations

  • Are you starting your own firm, but can't afford, or don't want, to hire employees?
  • Are you growing your business but have to choose between operations help or new advisors?
  • Are you semi-retired  and don't really need full- or even part-time help?
  • During your busy season is your staff overwhelmed?
  • Have you brought on new advisors but don't quite have the operations staff to support the additional business?
  • Do you offer investments as an add-on service to your tax or estate planning business but don't quite know the ropes of processing the business?

These are just some of the clients that find our services of value. Still not convinced? Read on and and consider how Back Office Services offers an affordable alternative to hiring in-house staff...

Flexibility With No Upfront Costs

With Back Office Services, you can contract for more hours during your busy season and less when things slow down. Add services when needed or drop them when they are not. And because we work remotely, there is no up-front costs for you other than our agreed upon fee. You hire us, we start. Its as easy as that!

Affordable vs. Hiring Staff

While you might be able to hire someone whose hourly salary is lower than ours, you are also looking at paying for hours when you may or may not actually need the help. There's also the expense of payroll, insurance, benefits, taxes, equipment, furniture, IT -- not to mention the time it takes to advertise, interview and hire someone. A 2019 study conducted by SHRM found it takes an average of 42 days and over $4,000 to recruit and hire a new employee. Then it takes an anywhere from eight to 26 weeks for a new employee to become fully productive.

Back Office Services is a much more affordable and flexible way to have in-house capabilities without the in-house expense.

Does a Remote Back Office Really Work?

A lot better and efficiently than you might think!  All B/D, custodian, annuity and insurance companies now offer up-to-date forms online, e-signature options and electronic submission. With programs like Microsoft Teams, Skype, Slack, etc. people can effortlessly stay in contact as if they were sitting in the same room. Today's digital phones can be forwarded anywhere and almost everything is stored electronically now. And if you prefer to do things the old fashioned way, we can do that too; with today's fax, email and overnight mail capabilities we can seamlessly integrate with your office.

We Provide Our Own Background and Credit Reports
