Why share accounting software with your clients?
Encouraging your micro clients to work in a shared accounting software can have benefits for them too.
Useful tools to run their business
For small businesses, sole traders and new business owners, its often the case that every penny counts. Having useful features included in accounting software like invoicing, expenses and payroll can help them save money without having to spend on additional programs.
Having lots of tools in one software is a great time saving tool. Your clients won’t have to switch between software to get their tasks done. Meanwhile, you benefit from getting information on income, expenses and payroll in the same place as their accounting, saving you time too.
Understand their finances
Accounting software comes with reports which are beneficial to business owners. If you’re doing your clients day-to-day bookkeeping on an ongoing basis, encouraging your clients to check in on their reports can help them gain a better understanding of their finances.
There’s a few ways you can help with this. Helping your clients to interpret their reports can be a great place to start. If your clients notice any problems or want to create a budget, your advisory services to guide them to improve their finances can be very valuable.
Keep the right records easily
Storing paper receipts and other documentation takes up space, isn’t secure and can end up with important information going missing. Cloud accounting software that allows your clients to upload receipts and other documentation can solve this problem!
If your clients are willing to get into the habit of uploading documentation, it can save them time and stress in the long run. Plus, it helps them to be fully compliant with their record keeping requirements.
Less stress around deadlines
Instead of having last minute stress gathering receipts, invoices and bank statements around tax deadlines, all the information will already be in the accounting software. Your clients can relax while you do their tax returns without a rush.
