Accounting & Bookkeeping

Benefits of Online Accounting Services

Written by Analytix Editorial Team | May 1, 2018

For smaller-sized businesses poised for growth, one of the biggest challenges they face is the ability to stay on top of their accounting and bookkeeping processes while pursuing business opportunities.

Business Revenue Suffers

One of the most common casualties of neglected accounting processes is gaps in bookkeeping and maintaining records. In businesses that handle particularly large volumes of work, this can remain incomplete or unnoticed until it is time for filing taxes. Searching for missing receipts or invoices can be harrowing for a business with a deadline looming. The resulting chaos could lead to missed exemptions, lost tax benefits, and possibly reduced revenue figures. Worse still, some businesses might even end up paying more taxes than required due to misplaced or missing expense records.

Online Accounting Can Help

Migrating your accounting functions to an online platform can help to mitigate some of these issues.  Following are several considerations prior to moving the business accounting directly online:

  • The software needs to be programmed to match the business’s needs.
  • The business needs dedicated resources to operate the software.
  • Software, in turn, needs reliable troubleshooting and backup support in case it fails to deliver
  • For the business choosing to buy software, it needs equal investments in terms of infrastructure and trained manpower to operate it. If and when the need arises, someone also needs to be able to carry out troubleshooting and repairs on the work.

You can also hire a professional to assist with this implementation.  They can manage this process, help organize bookkeeping, and maintain the accounting functions. Together, this leads to stronger financials for a business.

Benefits for a Small Business/Startup

  • Creates reliable bookkeeping; ensures all transactions, however minor, are recorded to be retrieved whenever needed.
  • Reduces the infrastructure investment needed by the business. Cuts down on the costs and efforts needed to source and hire manpower.
  • Helps organize critical accounting categories better, such as accounts receivables. Customized software may also be programmed to create invoices, deliver bills, send payment reminders, etc.
  • Minimizes errors and ensures accuracy in figures and calculations.
  • Certain kinds of online tax software can ensure judicious tax filing; maximizing the available exemptions and tax credits while fulfilling obligations.

Benefits for a CPA/Accounting Firms

  • Reduces the burden of ensuring reliable records of all transactions.
  • Reduces the burden of carrying out daily, essential accounting tasks.
  • Ensures streamlined accounting and bookkeeping processes while leaving critical business operations unruffled.
  • Helps create reliable records, especially for complicated requirements.
  • Helps create reliable financial records that can be referenced any time for making critical investment decisions, etc.

Making a Decision

There are no short-cuts to financial health. Diligent accounting and bookkeeping are one of the best ways to ensure efficiency and sustained financial growth. In accounting, elements like accounts receivables and accounts payables are interconnected, leading up to tax filing time, when a business with well-documented records may claim due benefits and exemptions, while ensuring all liabilities are paid out. When well-maintained and streamlined, accounting and bookkeeping can help increase the business’s financial growth and ensure stability and sustainability.
