Ever see folks staring in the same direction? You don’t initially join them in the glance. But in the back of your head, you think, “hmm, I could be missing out.” It’s a common thought, which links directly to your business:
FOMO – the fear of missing out (it’s real)
This is exactly how you should feel about your business and the cloud. Cloud technology is driving a massive, once-in-a-generation shift in the accounting sector. The move means software is doing much more of the heavy lifting, freeing advisors from the pain of data-entry so they can focus on higher-value activities and help boost the success of their small business clients.
Working on a single ledger, in real-time with our clients means we accountants are able to develop closer client relationships and up-level to offer more CFO-type services.
So now is the time to look at online applications and revolutionise your business. Why not get a cloud application like Xero which will give you real time accounting information at your fingertips.

If you want your business to work smarter and faster, cloud accounting software is the way forward. Working in the cloud will give you a better overview of your finances, and improve collaboration with your team.
Accounting software should not be a pain to use
Small business accounting software that’s not available via the cloud can be tedious. Traditionally, it can use up far too much of your business time and effort. This doesn’t add value, and takes the fun out of being in business. Cloud software can save your company time and money.
So what is the cloud?
Think about when you use internet banking. Every time you access this data, you’re using the cloud. The cloud is a platform to make data and software accessible online anytime, anywhere, from any device. Your hard drive is no longer the central hub.
Why the cloud and accounting software are the perfect match
You can use cloud-based software from any device with an internet connection. Online accounting means small business owners stay connected to their data and their accountants. The software can integrate with a whole ecosystem of add-ons. It’s scalable, cost effective and easy to use.

Cash flow is important. In fact, many of the small business owners we know think it’s the most important metric for your business.
The easiest way to maintain cash in your business is to get paid. Not only that, you need to get paid on time.
Chasing invoices can be time-consuming and even awkward at times. No one wants to have an uncomfortable conversation with a great customer just because they have an overdue invoice.
But unpaid invoices mean you’re operating without money that you should have in the bank. And every minute you spend chasing them is time you could have been working on something else that makes you money. That’s a double whammy.
Here at Gahan.ie we want to help you maintain your cash flow, in any way we can. NOW Xero has launched Invoice Reminders and now they’re officially here.
What are Invoice Reminders
Invoice reminders allow you to automatically send your customers an email reminder about their invoice. You will be able to remind them before or after it’s due, your choice. And the message is fully customizable. But once you get it set up, you don’t have to worry about these reminders.

Coming from all over Australia, these four young girls are sharing the Xerocon experience tonight and are determined to stamp their individual marks on the business world in the areas of accounting and bookkeeping.
They all have been using Xero from between 3 and 12 months and are loving the conference. “It’s really informative. Between Xero and the add-ons it’s going to make our lives easier and our client’s businesses easier. We’re excited to be able to go back home and share it with everyone.”
There’s a common driver here, a bit of a Gen-Y thing they reckon – characteristics of flexible, transient, loyal and hardworking.
