The accounting world is changing, and at Wheatcrofts we’re determined to make the most of new technologies as they emerge. In recent years there’s a multitude of new products and technologies which have not only changed the accounting industry, but also the ways in which we can work with our clients.
Just in the last year, we have launched our secure fileserver, switched to a brand new accounting software package, and embraced a variety of new bookkeeping software.
The brand new CCH iFirm suite represents the next generation in industrial accounting software. Developed by CCH, the well established and authoritative legislation and reference provider, iFirm is a cloud based accounting system. By involving industry leading workflows and reference materials in the preparation of tax returns, it has made our work more efficient and accurate than possible before.
Fantastic new bookkeeping software like Xero and MYOB Live enables us to dramatically reduce the amount of time our clients spend maintaining their bookwork. The ability to log in and resolve any problems in a few moments is a feature which has quickly become indispensable, and has allowed more and more clients to become confident enough to prepare their own Business Activity Statement.
We continue to find new ways to work closely with our clients. Skype and remote desktop services allow us to be more involved with regional clients whenever we are needed. Being able to sit in with a client when they’re working on a cash flow spreadsheet, or recording some complex journal entries is an invaluable tool in ensuring that everything is running smoothly.
