We realise that when you’re starting a business, you'd like to keep an eye on things yourself and may not need our constant attention. Indeed, many small companies we work with manage their own day-to-day bookkeeping, payments and invoices, and track their bank accounts.
There are many different basic accounting and bookkeeping software applications on the market, but none perhaps as intuitive as Xero. From invoicing to managing petty cash and payroll, Xero offers a plethora of features for all of your small business’ accounting needs. If you’re interested in finding out more, as Bronze Partners to Xero, Berley has got you covered.
Why use Xero
Xero is cloud-based. It resides on the web and is accessed through a web browser, meaning it's not an application you need to install on your PC. What this also means is that you no longer have to worry about deleting or losing account data on your computer because the cloud will automatically back up your work to keep it safe. You can also easily recover anything you may have accidentally deleted. In short, Xero is miles ahead of its computer-based counterparts.
The best thing about Xero is that it gives you timely and accurate information about your accounts which makes it an efficient way to work. Xero is well featured and goes beyond what many typical bookkeeping packages offer. For instance, it does a particularly good job at integrating with your bank accounts and performs bank reconciliation, where the software intelligently looks for matches between accounting entries and bank transactions. This helps reduce the time spent on manual tallying. Precious time that can be spent on other aspects of running your business.

We understand it can be difficult to transition to a new way of doing things. However, it’s a necessary step to take, and especially with the introduction of the government’s Making Tax Digital scheme, switching to digital accounting, is something businesses of all sizes should be thinking about implementing sooner rather than later.
