For the small business owner, keeping track of invoicing, payments and expenses can be a real headache!  But now with digital accounting software, those time-consuming tasks have got so much quicker and easier.

If you currently don’t use any accounting software, there’s just enough time to get ready for a big change which is soon to happen.

The government has announced that from April 2019 all VAT-registered businesses must keep digital accounting records under it’s new ‘Making Tax Digital’ rules.

That means account books, spreadsheets and carrier bags full of receipts are no longer acceptable!

But help is at hand – The Local News have partnered with Quick Books Online to offer a digital accounting solution to local businesses.
