Accounting software and advice
Get your head into the cloud
As HMRC continue to ‘Make Tax Digital’, the current tax system is undergoing a change that will consign spreadsheet-based annual tax returns to your computer’s desktop bin once and for all. Instead, your business will need to be using an approved online accounting software package linking to HMRC, ready to input all your accounts information directly.
We’ve got all the information and answers you need to help you make the right choice on which software to use, and we can show you how to use it, making the transition from traditional to digital accounting as hassle-free as possible.
Cloud-based accounting packages
Having trialled and tested different online accounting packages, we chose Xero as our software of choice and we’re now Xero certified advisors, so we can get you set-up and fully up to speed. Though it’s our recommended choice, we can (and do) supply, train, and support other online accounting packages as well, such as Sage, Kashflow, and Quickbooks.
If you’re reluctant to make the change to cloud-based accounting, you’re not alone. That’s why HMRC have given everyone a long transition period, giving you the time to get the right software and get used to using it. But if you’re starting to feel like now’s the time to switch to cloud-based accounting, the benefits to you and your business make it well worth it – here’s why:
- Secure 24/7 online access to your company’s financial data
- Easy to use interface with multiple reporting options and automated bank reconciliation
- Allows your accountant to access your current data, giving you more timely and accurate advice
- Your accounting software is always up to date
- Regular costs conveniently paid as a monthly subscription
- Fully compliant with HMRC’s ‘Making Tax Digital’ initiative
Desktop accounting packages
Despite its advantages, we know not everyone is comfortable with the idea of online accounting packages. That’s why we also support more traditional accounting software that runs entirely on your office computer but is still compliant with both current and future HMRC requirements. These include Quickbooks Pro, Sage Instant and Sage 50. But if your existing software isn’t compatible, don’t panic – we can help you upgrade or switch to a system that is.
The countdown’s on, so when it’s time to switch from file to cloud, we’ll help you make the change safely, securely, and easily.
