A time for resolutions to become better, more streamlined, more efficient superhero-like humans. Resolutions that are unlikely to make it further than mid-February when the craving for the latest beer at the brewpub and an evening binge-watching Narcos seems much more appealing than a visit to the gym or a salad.
But with 1 January being halfway through the financial year, it’s actually the perfect time set a goal to get your bookkeeping records on track. We can’t give you your dream body, but we do have a great suggestion to streamline your tax, GST and payroll accounting by switching to Xero software, giving you more free time to grow your business and work on your six pack of choice.
Why switch? In a nutshell, Xero is a cloud-based software that allows you to manage your business finances with less administration time and a clearer real-time understanding of your financial position.
It’s what we use for our firm and it has many benefits.
There is a single centralised data file that we can both access at the same time, which will always be up to date, helping us support you in better decision making and provide valuable real-time advice.
We can seamlessly transfer you from your existing accounting software such as MYOB or Quickbooks and migrate your accounts, contacts, transactions, payroll and other important files directly into Xero so you will be good to go straight away.
We can walk you through some short training to get you up to speed on how the system works, freeing up more time in the long run. We can also continue to look after your books on Xero once you make the change.
In no time at all you will be able to complete the bank return and run a P&L and GST return at the click of a button. You will see how to add an asset to the fixed asset register, or even upload receipts and invoices to your online files inbox via your mobile phone from the pool bar or on the go.
Ready for Xero? Drop us a line and we will help you have a better 2017.
