Bookkeeping Software


What do we mean by bookkeeping software?

  • It is the tool that you as a business owner uses to record your financial transactions.
  • It can be as simple as a spreadsheet where you record receipts and expenses, or it can be more intelligent, looking after debtors (people who owe your business money), creditors (people that your business owes money to), VAT, fixed asset registers and more.
  • We believe that the small annual cost of getting some professionally designed and maintained software is worth it for every small business. In the long run it will save you time and money.

How can bookkeeping software save time and money?

  • By using bookkeeping software you can save time because there is less chance of making mistakes, or more importantly less time searching for where those mistakes may have happened.
  • You can save time, because when you want to search for information on a customer or supplier activity the information is at your fingertips.
  • You can save money because when it comes to speaking to your accountant at the end of the year, they are much more likely to quote you lower fees if you can supply them with your records neatly sorted in a format they can understand.

What are my options?

  • There are a huge number of packages out there, and we will happily talk you through the options.
  • One of the first decisions needs to be whether you want to work with ‘cloud based’ or ‘desktop based’ bookkeeping software.

At the moment our favourite cloud based options are KashFlow or Quickbooks Online – if you would like a free trial please click the link for KashFlow, or phone us to talk through the options for Quickbooks.

We offer an enhanced service with KashFlow and Quickbooks Online, giving you help to set the system up so it will work for you, and providing an additional level of support.

Our bookkeepers use this software every day, so know the features inside out. This means that if you have a question, it is likely that we have already been asked it. To make it really easy, we like to answer your questions by providing you with a video answer.

On top of all of this, we can give you a really good deal because we buy so many licences. Even better, if you are a customer of Making Sense of Numbers’ other products you may qualify for an even bigger discount – many of our customers don’t pay for the software at all.

Is it just KashFlow and Quickbooks Online?

No, we work closely with many other packages including Sage, FreeAgent, and Quickbooks. Whilst we love the flexibility that working with online software gives us, we are also aware that it is not for everybody.

Give us a call or use our contact form to discuss what package might be right for you, or if you think you can get your existing package working better – we may well be able to help there as well.
