The employment of outside services is essential for any business, as there are simply specialties that cannot be performed by anyone other than qualified experts in their respective fields. There is no shame in hiring outside of the company in order to do business with the utmost efficacy.

Accounting is one field in which it is very advisable to hire the services of an outside contractor.

However, it is much easier to locate a contractor specializing in accounting who is willing to do work for your company on a case-by-case basis.
Additionally, you may not want to budget out the funds necessary to employ an accountant when you only require his or her services for a few weeks out of the year. The benefit of hiring an outside accountant is that he or she will handle your finances, which is somewhat of a critical issue when it comes to business. He or she may help draft up a budget using his or her industry know-how and save your business plenty of money just with his or her breadth of knowledge.
