Virtual Bookkeeping: Working With Clients Remotely

devices_connected_to_cloud_400_clr_8844-300x300

 

Is your bookkeeping still in the  “olden days” of when the accountant (or bookkeeper) took care of everything and the client had no access to the books at all. In a lot of  cases, clients have decided that they’d rather not be doing the bookkeeping at all and would rather leave this to us.

A question I am always asked is.

“How do you provide bookkeeping services when you are not at the client’s location?”

How We Do It

1.  We give all our clients free access to Xero online accounts. Xero is available 24/7 via internet connection.

2.  Our clients  usually raise and issue all sales invoices on Xero.

3. All other accounting records ( purchase invoices, receipts, bank statements etc.)  are scanned and emailed to us.

4. We then process and enter all these items on Xero.

5. Our clients, of course,  have access to all this information online anytime anywhere.

In my own business, I’ve been working with clients 100% virtually since 2010.  So if you want to streamline your bookkeeping and accounting please call us at 6684411 for further details.

Xero Rules Why Our Clients Love Xero

Xero is the best thing to happen to accounting software in 20 years. If you’re not using Xero for your accounting, you’re missing out.

Seriously!

As you can tell, at Gahan.ie we love Xero. Our clients love it too.

Xer Rules

Weird, huh? Using the word ‘love’ in relation to accounting software seems strange doesn’t it? (Even for us accountants!)

Our accountants are implementing Xero with virtually all our business clients. As a result, Gahan.ie Accountants & Advisors are one of Ireland’s leading xero providers

This means when you get started with Xero with us, you’re not only in expert ‘Xero Guru’ hands. We use Xero for our own business so you’re dealing with accountants who are enthusiastic and keen to help and train you in how to best use Xero.

And enthusiasm counts.

I hear it every day here, when accountants are on the phone speaking with clients who are being stepped through our Xero Setup & Training Package. Our team’s passion for this brilliant time-saving, stress-reducing piece of technology just comes out in how they explain it to clients.

Enthusiasm rubs off.

If you’re anything like all our clients who have switched to Xero already, we know you’ll be just as enthusiastic as we are about how easy and pleasurable Xero is to use.

Grow Your Business With an FC

CFO

Imagine Having a Seasoned FC to Help Guide Your Business Decisions.
Larger businesses have a Financial Controller (FC) on staff. They can afford to. They also understand that they cannot afford not to, because the FC plays such a crucial role in a business, keeping an eye on the numbers, helping with accurate forecasts, giving solid information to the business decision makers, as well as helping with decision making.
But what can small and medium sized business do, to get CFO input and
guidance?
The answer: You out-source it. You get a part-time, out-sourced FC until you can afford one full-time.
That’s where we come in.
Our ‘Your FC’ service has been developed with input from our clients to make sure it’s the ideal mix of support service and affordability.
As ‘Your FC’ we roll our sleeves up and work with you in finance meetings throughout the year on:
• Cash flow – Efficient management of cash flow to provide cash for saving or growth
• Profitability – Identifying key drivers of profit and focusing on these
• Business value – growing a valuable and saleable business asset
• Structure management – Risk and taxation issues
As business owners, we all know we need to measure and monitor Key
Performance Indicators (KPI’s). That is, the numbers that really matter in running our business. It is also important that you have a ‘KPI dashboard’ with a future-focused approach with forward targets, utilising historical information to assist in monitoring and direction.
The targets need to be relevant to your business direction and strategy and the current identified issues.
As your FC, we bring to the finance meeting with you clear reports, real-time KPI information, and as well we will discuss:
• Profit (historical and future)
• Cash flow (historical and future)
• A mixture of focusing on ‘Lead indicators’ which drive performance and ‘Lag Indicators’ that measure the outcomes
• Marketing activity and effectiveness
• Operational efficiencies such as work in progress issues
• Financial indicators such as debtor turnover
• Team efficiencies, knowledge, morale and safety.
As an experienced ‘sounding board’ for you in making your business decisions,
and by helping with your forward planning for achieving the next period’s targets, our ‘Your FC’ service and support gives you a crystal clear focus for
what needs to be done to achieve the goals of your business.
Your next step … Call us on 6684411 or email us on
at info@gahan.ie for a no cost and no obligation meeting to discuss
how we might work with you as ‘Your FC’. We’ll then outline the costs so you know exactly what lies ahead.
