Small Business Best Accounting Software Australia Critical Financial Support

The days of dowdy accounting software – that which was made to keep accountants in business and infuriate business users – are behind us. Lead by several ‘Software as a Service’ providers, old players in the market have been forced to raise their usability game and streamline the weekly, monthly and annual administrative tasks you need to complete to keep things rolling along smoothly.

Today, instead of paying hundreds of dollars each year for the latest version of your software, you can pay a monthly fee that not only gives you anywhere/anytime access to your data, but also is updated whenever a new accounting rule is made law or an old regulation is updated.

The new subscription-based software licensing models means that the old “one license = one computer” system has been smashed. As long as you can get to a web browser and remember your login details, you can raise an invoice, process a payment, reconcile your bank statement and even complete your BAS.

Today, you don’t need to install accounting software. Relatively new players in the accounting software business, who brought cloud services to business and accounting software, compete with established marques like QuickBooks, Reckon, and MYOB. The new players have upped the ante, forcing the old-timers to lift their game and make their applications easier to use, more reliable and up to date.

Six things to consider

Before jumping in and subscribing to a cloud-based accounting solution, there are a few things you need to consider.

Annual fees: With a cloud-based service, you’re moving to a rental or access fee – you’re not actually buying the software. Instead of making a capital software purchase you’ll need to budget for monthly or annual payments. Depending on your needs that could be as little as a few dollars a month up to hundreds. Many Software as a Service (SaaS) providers tell you they’re a cheaper option. But it’s more likely they’re just smearing similar costs over a longer period, much like taking on low or interest-free financing from a furniture store – except that you never actually own the software.

Your data: SaaS providers don’t just provide the software – they also hold your data. In some cases, getting hold of your data so you can switch provider or make your own backups can be tricky. And while SaaS providers do their best to protect your data, it’s still up to you to keep reliable backups.

Integration: As your business grows and you invest in more SaaS you will probably want different services to work together. For example, you might want the invoicing module in your accounting software to work with your customer relationship system. Do your research to ensure the accounting system you choose can integrate with other applications you might need in future. And don’t forget your address book – having a single address record for all your customers, suppliers and other partners will ensure you don’t have to maintain the same data in multiple systems.

Workflow: When you commit to a new software package there will be some necessary adjustment on your part. You’ll need to learn how to use the software to carry out everyday tasks such as entering invoices and receipts as well as produce your monthly or quarterly BAS and reports your accountant will need for preparing your tax return.

Bank feeds: Cloud-based accounting systems can directly connect to most banks and collect transaction data, saving you the effort of manually typing every transaction. Make sure your bank or financial institution is properly supported. For example, I’ve seen some credit card feeds that are only partially supported resulting in slow feeds or connection errors.

Multi-platform and mobile: Although you might do most of your accounting work on a desktop or notebook computer, being able to raise an invoice from a smartphone, or check outstanding accounts from your phone can be handy when visiting a customer.
