Online Accounting

Don't waste evenings and weekends doing paperwork.

Get a Cloud accounting package now! When I speak to business owners about their bookkeeping process, there are a lot of trends in what people say “I do it when I can” “I just don’t have time” “it takes so long” “I hate paperwork” What if there was a way to not only let you cut down on the paperwork you’re storing but also update your books quicker and have more accurate records? Good news, we’ve found the answer - cloud accounting software.

We know all about cloud accounting and we love it! Call us now on 01379 640555 and we’ll tell you why we are so excited by cloud based bookkeeping and accounting. Cloud accounting software allows you to create quotes and invoices on the go so you can keep up to date on the job rather than having those dreaded late nights of admin. Capturing images of your receipts as you go means you can cut down on your missing receipts and with your bank account connected you know exactly where your business is at to prevent those tax bill shocks.

Cloud accounting allows you to manage your business including invoicing on the go and allocating payments and receipts, automated credit control and chasing and bank reconciliation. It’s really easy once you know the basics and you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it before.

Changes to Making Tax Digital

Many businesses changed to cloud accounting back in 2018/19 with the introduction of Making Tax Digital and there are more changes to come for MTD. The Government has now announced that MTD will also include all VAT registered businesses as of April 2022 and will extend to those who submit self-assessment tax returns for property/business income (over £10,000) as of April 2023. These changes might seem far off from now, but there’s no time like the present. Getting caught out further down the line will only result in penalties, and in the meantime the advantages that online accounting has to offer are far-reaching.
