There are many different accounting software and systems that industries use, such as MYOB, Quickbooks, Banklink, and Xero, just to name a few. The best option for your business will depend on your situation.
However, many businesses are changing to Xero due to the need for businesses to be cloud-based. Online accounting software like Xero gives you live data that can be pulled from it at any given time, making it easier for you to make business decisions.
By using Xero accounting software, you can link together several business systems. These include point of sale, inventory management, and payroll systems. Xero can help small businesses or large businesses expand, regardless of their size.
We can help you connect your business to Xero and integrate all the necessary apps.
Bookkeeping can vary in pricing quite dramatically as the duties performed by a bookkeeper can vary from someone just coming in a few hours a week to keep your records up to date to a full-time bookkeeper managing several different linked businesses.

This is a common question from business owners. Once you engage external accountants and bookkeepers, you will no longer be hands-on with that aspect of the business. However, with regular meetings with your bookkeeper to discuss any issues and ongoing tasks, you will continue to feel in control of your bookkeeping.
