At this time of year, all eyes are on end of year. It’s Tax Time. But how organised are you and your systems for year end?
Do you have the latest software patches loaded, is your system tax compliant, and is all of your data entry up to scratch?
How much is it going to cost you to have a Bookkeeper come and sit with you for a week to enter in all of your data, for the Consultant to bring your system up to scratch and for your Accountant to sort through it all?
Wouldn’t it be great if there was an easier way? A World where your systems talked to each other, where transactions took care of themselves and your Bookkeeper and Accountant became Advisors rather than Compliance Monitors?
Take a look at our 3 Reason To Use Cloud Accounting to find out how.
The primary reason for using a Cloud Accounting system would be access. No longer confined to the Desktop computer in your office, you are now free to manage your business from the car, home or away on holidays!
Best of all, you can share your access with most systems, providing your Advisors instant access to your business information allowing for up to the minute advice.
Larger business can also benefit from having remote workers or offices connecting with ease, without the burden of ageing infrastructure to get in the way.
2. PEACE OF MIND
When was the last time you backed up your system, or had to restore it, only to find out that your backups don’t work, or the system database didn’t backup?
The feeling is gut wrenching, particularly at this time of year.
With a Cloud Accounting system, your software, assets and business data are always backed up, and always accessible, 24 hours a day.
You should also look for a system that allows you to backup your own data and store it locally, just for extra piece of mind.
Systems with 24/7, multilocation access were once just a figment of small business owner’s imagination, often left to the larger ERP competitors.
Systems with online Inventory, Payroll, Time Keeping and Financials, such as Reckon’s Quickbooks Hosted platform, can be had for as little as $25 per month.
We are able to advise on a wide range of Cloud Accounting and Hosted business packages to suit your needs.
We would love to also hear any feedback from businesses out there already operating in the Cloud.
