Where business is concerned, it goes without saying that keeping your finances in order is imperative. Not only is it necessary in order to ensure that invoices are sent out and paid on time, and to help with forecasting cash flow, but detailed financial records are critical when the taxman comes knocking.
Fortunately, this is much easier than it used to be. Today's accounting software and invoicing packages are built for business owners, not accountants, which means there's no complicated jargon and you can be up and running in minutes. Cloud-based services let you monitor your business from anywhere on a range of devices, and there's no need to worry about backups because the provider will handle that for you, too.
