Done For You “Realtime” Bookkeeping
Finally, “Real time” Bookkeeping that takes care of itself.
We have designed a bookkeeping service to keep your financial clarity at its best.
Do you ever feel that your ideal month end bookkeeping just gets away? Here comes the next month, and the next, and already you’re records are 90 days behind?
With 90 day old records, there’s now three times the work to do. Three times as many hours tidying up the unreconciled transactions, but who’s keeping the business running…? Then there’s your accountant chasing you so that they can lodge the BAS. Without mentioning the financially informed key management decisions you should be making!
From very minimal input by you, we keep your Xero file is kept in top shape. In fact, so little work from you, it means your just taking some photos and forwarding emails!

Cloud Accounting and Xero
There are many software options for cloud accounting, including:
These are the four that we use internally here at Inspire CA. There are other alternatives available, and many more in development, but these four are what we find are best suited to our clients.
How do you move to Cloud Accounting?
The transition from a desktop based accounting system to a cloud accounting package is an art.
1. Choose your cloud accounting package
Firstly, you will want to make sure you’ve chosen the right package for your business. The best way to do this is to discuss your needs with an adviser.
Sidenote: there are many accounting firms and advisers who align themselves with only one brand (we were one of them!). Remember that it needs to be the best fit for your business, rather than the one with the most hype.
2. Prepare for the transition
Having helped over 100 businesses implement cloud solutions, the transition can be a bumpy ride.
I heard a saying recently from a friend who served in the military, “Time spent in reconnaissance is seldom wasted”. This saying remains true when transitioning to the cloud.
You need to consider:
We find that the first few weeks of implementing cloud accounting software can be draining, and we offer 24 hour turnaround support through our help center. We strongly encourage you to stick with it though, as after that on-boarding period, things are a breeze!
3. Take the leap
Once you’ve done all of your preparation and ideally worked in with your adviser, you’re ready to take the leap.
Ideally, you will have had the training before the conversion date, and your accountant will have set up the accounting package ready for you to start working in.
So step 3 is relatively easy – log in, and start crunching those numbers away! Oh, and don’t forget to lean on an adviser that has experience in your accounting package.
