FAO Newsagency has many benefits, including:

  • Being a flexible, scalable platform with the added capacity to meet peak reporting periods, changes in technology, or special projects,
  • Outsourcing of bookkeeping, tax, and reporting, allowing you more time to focus on building your business,
  • Eliminating the need and cost for employees trained in accounting, and,
  • Using an outcome-based pricing model, meaning that you only pay for what is agreed upon and delivered.

FAO Newsagency is delivered under a Service Level Agreement as a fully managed service to ensure quality and compliance obligations are met. This client-oriented service guarantee ensures that business managers and owners are not distracted by micro-managing administrative tasks. Instead, you can focus your time on building your business.
