The rise of the cloud and online service provision has changed the way we do business forever, it has enabled us to develop better relationships through social media communications and has allowed access to a massive resource sector that was previously out of reach for most small businesses.
The cloud has enabled us to reach out to advisors, specialists and technicians who are able to help in the day to day operations as well as the back end needs of a business. The end result being a model that is much more streamlined, efficient and profitable.
We’ve outlined 5 benefits of engaging with a Cloud Bookkeeping agency to assist in the financial management of your business. Advancements in systems and technology now allow us to look after your accounts from our own offices, reducing overheads and ensuring our productivity levels are high.
1. Gives you more time.
Engaging an external bookkeeping agency to manage your business’s bookkeeping frees up all that valuable time that you have spent, or paid someone to spend, on this often loathed task. That time can then be put to better use in the area’s of the business you really wish to work on.
2. Saves You Money.
How much is your time worth? How many hours are you spending on your books that you could be spending marketing your products or servicing your clients? By outsourcing your bookkeeping needs, you can save money on paying full-time or part-time wages and benefits to an employee or apply your time, which is valuable, to generate more revenue.
3. Expert Knowledge at your Fingertips
Most reputable bookkeeping agencies have fully trained and qualified bookkeepers and BAS agents on deck. Engaging one of these firm gives you immediate access to their combined experience and knowledge, providing YOU with reassurance that your books are being expertly managed and you are 100% compliant with the ATO.
4. Hit the ground running.
Most of you go into business to do what you do best, and unless you’re opening a BAS Agency – Bookkeeping is not going to be at the top of that list. Most agencies provide all the systems required to manage your accounts, and are highly proficient in the use of those systems. So rather than spending hours learning how to use these state-of-the-art programs, you can pay someone to get stuck straight into your bookkeeping from day 1, no downtime or upskilling required.
5. Ease of accessibility
Engaging a cloud bookkeeper also allows you access to your cloud bookkeeping platform, which can be accessed from any device that has the ability to connect to the internet, and provides real time data about the financial position of your business – so if you happen to be off on holiday, you can quickly check in to see how things are tracking.
