From record-keeping, payroll and management reports, to annual reporting and tax
Every year businesses can run up thousands of transactions and all of them need to be accounted for and properly maintained. These transactions include your sales, what you pay your employees and suppliers, and interest you may pay or receive.
Each transaction needs to be properly managed to ensure accurate and reliable preparation of company accounts at the end of the year. This is important as it will be the basis on which your business pays taxes, qualifies for loans or investments, and how it grows in the future.
The financial management of your business is critical, and a professional accountant can arrange and order your accounts in the most efficient manner, allowing you to focus on running your business instead of doing your books.

Company accounts preparation
After putting in a year of hard work on a business, it’s hard to summarise how well it has gone. Financial statements, such as the balance sheet and profit and loss statement, can help tell the real story of your business, letting you know its financial performance and outlook.
Remember, it doesn’t matter if you operate as a sole trader, a partnership, or a limited company. Year end financial statements help you understand how your business has fared. Praxis can produce your financial statements, so you can keep focusing on growing your revenues.

Online accounting saves you time and money
Praxis loves online accounting! Online accounting – or cloud accounting – is driving almost everything forward these days. Online accounting helps our clients save time, and gives everyone quicker and easier insights to their business.
Online accounting removes the need to install resource-intensive software on your computers, or even have dedicated machines. Any computer can access online accounting services, which means wherever you have a computer you can check on your company.
It can be quite a task for business owners and managers to decide which accounting service to go for. An online accountancy platform can improve the operational efficiency of your business and being online removes the need to buy new hardware regularly or upgrade existing software.
However, there are many online accounting platforms to choose from. Praxis can help advise on the best solution for your business.
Online accounting in the cloud via Xero
Xero cloud accounting is the online accounting software we recommend the most to our clients. Xero allows you to view your accounts from anywhere in the world, at any time. All you need is an internet connection!

Having accounts online also removes the need for data to be manually sent, and no more big storage files just to store old receipts. Files can be uploaded to the software directly attached to the transactions.
Having the accounts online does worry some users, but just like your bank online, online accounting software has a ton of security. We recommend Xero Accounting, and their online system has never been breached, and no data has ever been lost.
