Our Top 3 Reasons To Upgrade Your Accounting Software:
These days, business is moving at a fast if not hectic pace. The compliance world is changing just as fast with many changes to legislation, reporting requirements and connectivity options every year. The IT landscape is also moving at a frantic pace, with the introduction of Windows 8.1. the phasing out of Windows XP and the frenzied move to the Cloud.
There is a simple way to stay on top of it all inside your business though – by keeping your Accounting Software up to date. Here are our Top 3 Reasons you should upgrade your accounting software regularly.
1. Compliance: The Accounting and Tax laws are always changing. By keeping your accounting software up to date, you are assured that your business will be as up to date with current legislation that it can be be. You will also be more efficient by taking advantage of current lodgement technologies such as Standard Business Reporting which can save you time and money by lodging electronically straight from your data file.
2. Framework: Modern accounting software is made to work with the latest operating systems. By keeping your accounting software up to date you won’t hit the situation where you buy a new computer and your accounting software won’t work with it (ie Windows 8.1). The path to upgrade your systems is becoming more and more complicated. Staying up to date every year will keep your systems on the current platforms.
3. Cost: By regularly updating your accounting software, you won’t fall into a situation where you have to have your data go through 5 or 6 yearly upgrades (or more) taking hours and hours (which are expensive), instead of small incremental upgrades as they come out. Did you know you can move your Reckon software on to a subscription basis, paying a fraction of the outright cost per year, which will always keep you up to date, and save you money?
We are almost in accounting software update season now (with Reckon Accounts 2014 coming out soon). We are ready and able to assist you now rather than in the busiest period at Year End (June, July, August).
Have a great day.
