Is now the time to move to online accounting?
Now that online accounting solutions have been in the market for a number of years, it’s time to consider whether it’s a good idea for your business. In all honestly, we think online accounting will make a big difference to how you manage your business accounts.
One of the greatest opportunities available to businesses today is to take advantage of the power of the cloud. What’s the cloud? It’s a fashionable term for the internet.
Online accounting gives you the freedom to access your ‘live’ business data anywhere, anytime via the internet. You also have peace-of-mind knowing your data is always backed up and accessible.
With online accounting, you can:
- Access your accounts on any internet-connected computer or smartphone anywhere, anytime
- Link your bank account to automatically import your bank transactions ready for reconciliation
- Store your data securely online
- Integrate with a number of other software partners to take advantage of even more efficiencies for your business
- Enjoy improved data sharing between your business, our practice and your accountant
That last point is very important. It means you have visibility of your accounts throughout the year – not just at year-end. This ensures improved data accuracy, eliminates delays at key compliance times, and helps us to provide timely financial information to you.
The other feature we love is automatic bank feeds. This ensures all your transactions, like the payments you make and the payments you receive, are securely transferred into your software for you. Now that doesn’t mean the software automatically codes and reconciles for us, but it does provide processing efficiencies.
What’s more, you can access features such as real time invoice tracking, receive EFTPOS and credit card payments on the spot, and import invoices directly into your software – to name just a handful of time-saving innovations and cashflow improvements.
