XERO ROADSHOW 2016 – Going Digital

Following on from the Xero Roadshow we attended last month, we wanted to share what we learnt;

The takeaway message behind the roadshow was that ‘Making Tax Digital’ is coming, whether we like it or not and therefore, we all need to be ready for it and we’re very pleased to say… we are!

We are strong advocates of using Xero, an online accounting software for small business, which can be purchased for as little as £7.50 per month (https://www.xero.com/uk/pricing/).  It has been fantastic for our business and many of our clients are now using it too.  Times are changing and changing fast and although the thought of everything going digital (even your tax) can be a scary one, in the long run it will make everyone’s lives a whole lot easier and as far as our clients are concerned… don’t panic, we’re here to help!

We all know that in order to make a business work these days, we must have a strong ‘online’ presence, a smart, user friendly website, multiple social media accounts and so on… Making Tax Digital is linked to this, along with the whole ‘paperless office’ age we are currently living in, it is a marvel to be embraced, not feared and we guarantee it will make your lives easier!

You may remember we hosted a coffee morning for our clients last month, giving you the opportunity to come in and have your Government Gateway Account set up… this was Step 1 and if you have completed this already, well done, you’re ahead of the curve!

Step 2 is to start keeping your book-keeping records online… Xero is an easy to use, extremely well serviced and reasonably priced accounting software package.
