Yes, we work with QuickBooks online exclusively. The reason we do that is because, to give you such a low price, our systems have been been created such that we need to use QuickBooks online and it’s the only package we work with.The great news is, because you’re already using a cloud based software, moving from one to the other is really easy to do. And this is all included in the price.
QuickBooks and Xero are the two market leaders in the UK with QuickBooks being the leader worldwide. There are some quirks between the two, but generally they’re pretty much on par, and we find that the reporting from QuickBooks is far more powerful than it is from Xero.
I’m on Sage or using Spreadsheets, do I have to move?
The cloud is brilliant because it’s more efficient than other accounting softwares. It gives you the most up to date information and does a lot of the processing that you would have to do on Sage and spreadsheets yourself.
The processing you do manually is often automated in the cloud. The bookkeeping ability is much faster and more accurate. And you will be able to make decisions much faster because you’ve got real, live data and can see what’s happening in your business at that moment in time.
Also, with Making Tax Digital on the horizon, all companies will have to be online in 2020. So between now and then, everybody in the country will need to be filing digitally with HMRC. It’s best to get ahead of the curve and get used to the online systems before that first quarter hits!
The cloud is really powerful. With multiple add-ons that you can plug into your account that can really increase your business, escalate efficiency, help with stock control, debtor chasing and whole range of business tools.
Don’t worry if you’re on Sage - we can move your records across. Your current year and you previous year data will be migrated so you won’t lose your comparatives. With spreadsheets, we will get you up and running as fast as we can.
