Abstract

Outsourcing business processes overseas is increasingly common in the banking, financial services, retailing, insurance, and telecommunications sectors. Economists and accounting professionals expect this trend to accelerate; Deloitte Consulting LLP expects two million financial services industry jobs to relocate overseas during the next few years. Many large CPA firms have begun shifting tax-compliance work overseas, through outsourcing facilitators, to Chartered Accountants (CA) in India. Outsourcing tax-compliance work overseas can enable CPAs to focus on highermargin services such as tax consulting, to reduce labor costs, and to increase the speed of tax-return processing. With such potential benefits, CPA firms will likely join other segments in increasingly outsourcing tax-compliance services.
