Our accounting software of choice is Xero, an online platform for small and medium-sized businesses. Xero makes our operations highly efficient and offers numerous advantages to our clients too.
One of the most important benefits for our clients is that they have their own personal account which they can access at any time by logging in online, using the device of their choice. As Xero is a cloud-based platform, users can immediately see all the latest updates to their account – from invoices to tax returns – ensuring complete transparency and enabling business owners to make informed decisions.
We no longer have to keep paper records which means client information is safer. Confidential documents are exchanged over Xero’s secure document-sharing facility, rather than through email or post. This allows us to easily consult financial records to carry out accounting activities without sending our clients endless emails to ask for information.
As our clients simply pay a monthly fee for our services, which include a free Xero subscription, they don’t have to worry about software upgrades and maintenance as with traditional accounting software. Desktop software requires businesses to continually invest time and resources, as additional IT support may be necessary and upgrades often need to be purchased separately. With Xero, updates are automatic and there are no additional or hidden costs. Backups are also automatic so we don’t have to worry about remembering to run backups manually.
We know that accounting is one of the least enjoyable tasks for businesses owners, especially as it turns attention away from the business itself. Our clients find that Xero makes the bookkeeping process less daunting as it is intuitive and easy to use. With our help to carry out core accounting and administrative tasks, business owners can focus on other critical responsibilities while remaining fully informed about their finances.
