Top Reasons to Move to Online Accounting Software

If you’re a small business owner who is looking for an effective way to get your accounts in order, then you should be considering online accounting software.

We work with many online accounting software packages including Xero, QuickBooks and Kashoo, to simplify data entry, provide easy to understand reports and organise your financial information for you.

So, if you are still keeping your receipts in a shoebox, or tearing your hair out over manual reports, let us help you to make the move to an online accounting package.

Here’s some of the best reasons to implement online accounting:

Say goodbye to spreadsheets

Many small businesses rely on the humble spreadsheet to plan their budget, manage their stock and keep track of their cashflow. Which is fine… until something goes wrong.

We’ve seen the chaos caused by an accidentally deleted spreadsheet, or a mis-calculated formula, and it can take time, energy and money to put right. And unless your spreadsheet is on a network, only one person can access it at a time, causing a bottleneck in your admin.

Online accounting software removes all the hurdles of spreadsheet management, plus you will reap back your investment in time and resource savings. You’ll also have easy access to reports and cashflow details at the click of a button.

Simplify reporting and spot any issues

You don’t have to be a big organisation to benefit from an online accounting package. Entrepreneurs, sole traders and partnerships can all profit from having an exact snapshot of how healthy the business finances actually are.
GB Bookkeeping Services have helped many clients to set-up online accounting and trained business owners to build their own profit and loss reports, view expenses and see cashflow details in real time. This means you’ll be able to spot any issues that arise and rectify them quickly. Accurate financial information also means you’ll have the data to help you make smarter business decisions.

Your rivals are already online

Don’t let your competitors get ahead. With more businesses making the move to cloud-based accounting, there is every chance your rivals are already using it.

And if they are benefitting from smarter accounting and time saving efficiencies, then you ought to be as well.

Don’t fear The Cloud! It’s easy to get started

You’re a business owner, not an IT expert or an accountant, so we understand how the term ‘online accounting’ can sound daunting. But trust us, it’s not.

Modern small business accounting systems are designed to be user-friendly and easy to get to grips with, with minimum set-up information required. But once the system has been set up correctly and linked to your bank account, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it.

If you don’t feel confident in installing and setting up the software, GB Bookkeeping Services can do it for you. We’re experts in all the major online accounting systems and will get you up and running quickly and provide training for you and your staff so you get the most from your software.
