Small Business Accounting Software
As a small business owner, you will often have a task list as long as your arm, and it doesn’t seem to be reducing anytime soon. The last job that you’ll want to take on is managing your accounts and ensuring that everything is up to date manually.
We have often found that this task gets left until the last minute, creating a rush to get all your ducks in a row before submitting your annual return to HMRC.
Our aim as accountants is to avoid that rush and create an organised and accurate financial picture of the business all year round – no matter when the return is due. Plus, with the change to making tax digital, where accounts must be submitted online to HMRC, the importance for a readily accessible set of accounts is important.
Small business accounting software should be used by every organisation, whatever service or product they offer. Previously accounting software was only designed for use by in-house teams, at large organisations, they were complex to use and unsuitable for small businesses and freelancers.
However, there are now a range of options for small businesses to utilise, helping them to manage their business finances. Small business accounting software can assist with bookkeeping, invoicing, inventory and payroll.
The benefits of using small business accounting software
Small business accounting software is designed to make your life easier as a business owner, enabling you to easily manage your business finances in one place.
We have worked with many clients on helping them to integrate business accounting software into their organisation. Some of the main benefits that they have experienced include:
As small business accounting software is so easy to use business owners can access all their key financial statistics easily, most will offer a display dashboard that highlights the key figures and fluctuations which gives a snapshot of the current financial situation. This is ideal for small business owners that are struggling in terms of time management, if you don’t have the time to spend hours working your way through your finances and sending invoices the software can cut this time significantly.
Reduction in errors
As all the invoices and reports are created by the software itself there will be a reduction in the possibility of errors being made. Invoices are sent out automatically on the date selected when first entered into the system and if a repeat is required this can also be set up to send automatically. This can help to improve cashflow and the accuracy of yearly accounts as everything is monitored and managed by the software.
Simple data entry
Most small business accounting software is extremely simple to use, making it accessible for any business owner to login and update the relevant information. This links closely with time management and the reduction in errors, as the simple data entry process means that it is a much less time-consuming process.
New business accounting
If you have a new small business and unsure of the first steps to take in creating your company and deciding the best business structure this is also something that we can help with. We have advised many of our clients on the most efficient structure to choose in terms of tax, guiding them in the right direction.
It is important to get things right from the start for your business therefore securing a reliable small business accountant that can grow alongside you is ideal. We are enthusiastic about working with new businesses, giving them the support they need to continue to grow. We will help your business to set up, guide you through the growing process and capture the accounting and tax matters involved at all stages.
