Say goodbye to paper receipts – forever. Solutions like Receipt Bank, HubDoc, and AutoEntry enable you to capture and store a receipt electronically. Once captured it will automatically read and extract the important data, saving hours of manual data entry. These transactions come across to your accounting software (with a bit of help from us) and can be instantly reconciled with your bank transactions.
Once captured and processed, you can say goodbye to the paper invoice because an electronic copy is stored and always available in your accounting software. It’s the perfect paper trail just without the paper.
If you’ve ever used your own car for business travel then you know it can be a nightmare to keep track of business miles and claim the expenses you’re entitled to.
That’s where apps like Tripcatcher can help. Google Maps integration means capturing mileage on the web or your phone is simple. Integration with your cloud software automatically pulls through the expense claim to your accounting records. It also helps calculating the VAT reclaim due on fuel.
Claiming mileage expenses has never been such an easy ride.
If you’re in the service industry and regularly invoice the same clients then GoCardless is worth considering. You setup your clients and send them a Direct Debit mandate via GoCardless platform. When integrated with your cloud accounting solution, next time you raise an invoice GoCardless will automatically collect the amount due.
Most accounting suites come with basic inventory solutions, but if your business has inventory, stock, or warehouses then you should consider adding an inventory management system to your cloud software.
There’s a number of inventory management apps which add enhanced functionality to meet the needs of business’s holding stock and inventory.
All cloud solutions provide basic reporting, including profit and loss, balance sheets, management reports, trade receivables and payables.
But the power is in combining your financial information with non-financial information held in other systems and software you may be using.
Financial reporting tools make this easy to do. It’s one of the reasons cloud accounting is so powerful.
