Computers and bookkeeping go together. Yes you could do it all on paper – and some businesses still do – but why would you? A good bookkeeping package will make things easier for you – and one important point to make is that although these systems are also called accounting packages- what they actually do is the record keeping or bookkeeping not the accounting! …and a good accountant will add lots more to your business than just the number crunching.
Because record keeping is a really important part of running a business we provide help and support in several ways:
Firstly, we help you choose what sort of accounting software will be right for you! What is going to be the best accounting package – with our help you can work this out.
Secondly, we can help you implement and get going with your chosen package/
Thirdly, we can take the hassle out of keeping your bookkeeping records up-to-date by doing the grunt work so you get the best out of whichever package you choose.
Do you choose a desktop accounting application? Let us help you choose a system. We provide training and support for both Sage and QuickBooks, two of the most popular desktop bookkeeping packages available. We can use our skills to help improve your efficiency and help you, our client, to set-up their own accounting systems to be efficient and effective. We are Accountants Club Members for both Sage and QuickBooks and can supply software and hardware if necessary.
What about choosing a cloud accounting package? Online bookkeeping or cloud computing is becoming better and better every day – read more about it here and about the pros and cons of cloud accounting here. We can help you by recommending the best cloud bookkeeping software for you – implement and get it set up and working for you, and even take care of the day-to-day work to make it even easier for you. Most cloud apps even have iphone apps to upload receipts on the move.
Sometimes the standard, off-the-shelf, version of these software doesn’t do exactly what you want. And there is a growing collection of add-on software available. Software written to tweak the standard package and customise it for you – ask us for advice.
Meanwhile for anyone who just needs a spreadsheet based bookkeeping template we have the perfect answer – Easy Stuff That Works! This is a spreadsheet template that we developed years ago and its easy and it works and has been working for years! It is really just sophisticated list making and, if you would like a free copy, please just email the office and request one. We have a Excel based version and an Open Office version (if you have a mac then you might find this version is easier to use).
