We come across many small business owners who face a dilemma at this time of year: how will their business run without them while they are on holiday?

There is always a lot of paperwork, and it is vital that business owners have a system in place to record their finances.  This doesn’t have to be a fancy computer program, it can be a simple spreadsheet, however with technology moving fast business owners can use this technology to make their life easier.

We recommend a specialised computer system for clients of all sizes to use which has been designed with the real world in mind rather than one designed by Accountants for Accountants!  Xero is an online system that lets you keep up to date with all your finances and will store all of your information in one place rather than on different ledgers or spreadsheets.

The great thing is that even if you are on a beach in Spain sunning yourself you can still access this system from your laptop or phone to see how the business is doing in your absence.  You may want to completely switch off and relax on holiday away from your computer, but you can rest assured that some of the basic bookkeeping functions will happen automatically via Xero which will save you time when you get back home.

If you employ staff then they can have access to some parts of the system so that they can still process information in your absence giving you even more opportunity to relax.
