THE VALUE OF BOOKKEEPING SOFTWARE FOR SMALL BUSINESSES
Your Tax Shop is aware that for a lot of small business owners, bookkeeping is one of them boring tasks that keeps getting put on the bottom of your never-ending to-do list! Of course, tomorrow never comes, procrastination well and truly kicks in and the task becomes even more unappealing as the days go on. Sounds like you? See if Your Tax Shop can help change your mind…
With the introduction of Making Tax Digital, the government’s scheme to move tax filing online, there’s never been a more perfect time to consider other ways that technology and modern accounting software can help improve managing your business’s finances.
If you’re still on the fence and just can’t bear to tear yourself away from the traditional ways of filing your taxes, Your Tax Shop would like to introduce you to some of the ways bookkeeping software can make your life easier:
Easy, Simple and User-Friendly – Your Tax Shop explains that one of the main benefits when it comes to online bookkeeping software is how easy it is to enter and access information about how your company is performing. Of course, your software won’t be able to do it all by itself and you’ll need to keep things up to date, however, as with anything – you’ll get out what you put in! For those who dedicate a little bit of time to keep their books in order and updated, you’ll be rewarded with simple, clear and accurate information. Bookkeeping software is designed to make your day-to-day life easier, after all.
Helps Track Level of Income & VAT Registration – Bookkeeping software can help you understand better when you need to start thinking about registering for VAT, along with helping you decide which VAT scheme is best suited to your business. Your Tax Shop advises that legally, you must register for VAT when your business’s VAT taxable turnover exceeds the current threshold of £85k over any 12-month rolling period. Generally, without a reliable way of tracking your turnover, you may end up registering at the wrong time (or not registering at all!) – this is where software can really help you stay on track.
Live Bank Feeds & Reconciliations – Your Tax Shop understands that bank reconciliation is an integral step for any small business to keep a track of your incomings and outgoings. Most bookkeeping software now allows you to have all your business banking transaction data imported straight into the package, which then highlights any discrepancies and, in most cases, by the power of Artificial Intelligence, intuitively suggests a match in the expenses you’ve recorded based on what has been recorded previously. Gone are the days where you feel like crying out of frustration into stacks of paper and bags of receipts!
Reduces Accountancy Fees – As well as bookkeeping software being designed to make your life easier, when kept up to date and used correctly, this may well also make your accountant’s life easier! Your Tax Shop, based in Ashton-under-Lyne, provide a discounted, competitive rate to most of their clients that are organised and have their books in order.
Here at Your Tax Shop, we understand that bookkeeping software is not a ‘one size fits all’, which is why we offer a variation of packages to suit your business’s needs. If you’re ready to get started and make bookkeeping a breeze, call us today on 0161 339 5689 or book an appointment!
