Accounting software packages

Instead of limiting yourself to using Microsoft Excel, most companies will benefit from having
a fully developed software package. Traditionally, these have been expensive and difficult to use
but over the past few years, the software has become cheaper and more intuitive.

Cloud accounting software – Online accounts software

Most accounting packages are on the cloud, which means there is a monthly fee rather than a large initial cost. You can gain access to the software from anywhere with internet access. For passing information to your accountant or bookkeeper, they can be invited as a user. Most providers offer a free 30 day trial, this allows time to ensure the package is suitable for your needs.
