The benefits of cloud bookkeeping for small businesses

Paperless bookkeeping

Filing cabinets. Folders. Stacks and stacks of paper. Who needs them?

Not you, once you make the transition to cloud bookkeeping!

The cloud offers a unique advantage: all your information will be stored online with secure, cloud based software. Just think of all the paper (and space) you’ll be saving by eliminating physical records.

What’s more, you’ll be able to access your information from anywhere at anytime – all you’ll need is an internet enabled device, including your phone or tablet.

Automation

As a small business owner, you’re likely very time-poor. Why not free up the tangle of self-managed books with a cloud bookkeeping solution for your business?

Cloud bookkeeping doesn’t just take your bookkeeping online – it also automates it for you.

As a result, you’ll save time that otherwise would have gone into filing invoices and filling out spreadsheets.

And that means more time to work on more important things – like running your business!

Remain compliant at all times

Bookkeeping refers to the collecting and collating data, while accounting refers to interpreting that data and advising action.

As such, it’s crucial that this information is:

  1. Accurate and compliant
  2. Quickly and clearly communicated between bookkeepers and accountants

Where do cloud bookkeeping platforms like MYOB, QuickBooks and Xero come in? Simple: they eliminate the human element, the most common source of errors.

What’s more, with all your data stored securely online, your small business bookkeeper won’t lose time transferring information to your accountant – they’ll see your data instantly.

In this sense, online bookkeeping really is the future for business bookkeeping!

Ask our small business bookkeepers about system integration

We live in an age where all of our devices and accounts are connected – your bookkeeping software is no exception.

System integration refers to the process of connecting a cloud based system with other applications and data.

This allows cloud bookkeeping to function more efficiently by communicating automatically with systems and applications you already use. Instead of having to enter the numbers yourself, you’ll enjoy to-the-second reports, all without lifting a finger.

Say you receive a payment for an invoice. Instead of having to bring up the invoice, type the details into your bookkeeping software and file it away, all of this happens automatically.

Maximise your bookkeeping software with these integrations

With cloud bookkeeping platforms, there’s no limit to the number of external accounts and software that can we can integrate with your chosen cloud bookkeeping platform:

  • Bank accounts
  • CRM software
  • Inventory databases
  • E-commerce sites

Simply tell our team of cloud bookkeepers in Melbourne what types of accounts you have and which systems you use – we’ll do the rest.
