5 reasons to manage your business finances with software
Whether you're trying to grow your business or help ensure its continued success, spending time on accounting tasks is not the best use of your time. Your business needs you.
The right accounting software can help. Discover why, if you're using manual methods to manage your finances, switching to software may make all the difference.
It saves you time and helps you work faster
Accounting isn't as simple as punching in numbers. There are legislative updates to consider, changes to forms, VAT requirements, complex calculations - and more.
But when you use financial management software, you spend less time on accounting details. Why? Because your software does that work for you - with automatic updates as new information becomes available.
Step-by-step approach - from set-up to task completion and reporting
Two clicks to view customer & supplier information
Grows with your business - move seamlessly from product to product as your needs change
It's more accurate, with features that reduce errors
Managing your business's finances with pencil & paper or spreadsheets can lead to errors - from entering data incorrectly to misplacing payments.
Software solutions built for small businesses like yours include features that identify errors for you. And because you're inputting data less when you use software, you don't have to worry about double-entries, typos or other mistakes.
Always-on Audit Trail helps you track & reverse errors
Reduced data-entry - enter customer, vendor & employee information once, and QuickBooks uses it going forward
Permission levels and password-protection in Pro and Premier mean you can choose who has access to your data and who can make changes

It shows you exactly how your business is doing
Great reports can help you stay on top of your business's performance.
With pencil & paper or spreadsheets, generating reports is often a long & complicated process: Spend time deciding what reports you need. Search for related data. Manually create each report - including data entry, calculations & formatting. And repeat the whole process every time you need a new report.
Software simplifies reporting. Just choose a report template, customise it as you see fit - and your software does the rest.
Customisable reports: 100+ in Pro and 125+ in Premier
Tools to create business plans, forecasts and more
Customisable Chart of Accounts helps you organise money coming in & going out
One-click report-generating - so you can see the big picture and the details

It makes payroll easy
Calculating payroll by hand for one person can be time-consuming - but when you have multiple employees to pay, the task of calculating deductions and writing each cheque and pay slip by hand adds up.
Accounting software with payroll functions makes paying employees easier, with automatic legislative updates, built-in accuracy-checkers, simplified tools to print or distribute cheques - and even features to make tax time easier.
QuickBooks Payroll lets you take minutes - not hours - to pay your employees
