Best accounting tools for business...


Xero is the accounting tool made for non-accountant.  It comes with a lot of automated features which makes processing of data fast and efficient.  On the downside, it’s so easy to make mistakes particularly if the software hasn’t been set up correctly or the user hasn't received sufficient training.


QBO is a great product, but it tries to be something for everyone, which means it’s a bigger tool than most people need.  Finding the things you need within the app can be tough because there’s just so much.  Also, we wouldn’t recommend using QBO for cleanup work.  It is more difficult to track major issues and mistakes and fix them.


MYOB has a comprehensive choice of software plans. Offering high-end options. Unlike some competitors, most MYOB software plans will allow users to work offline. If Internet access is an issue this could make MYOB a better option.  MYOB continues as the most widely used accounting software in Australia. MYOB covers software solutions for businesses of all kinds of sizes, from one employee to over a hundred.

Recon is a very powerful accounting software package with both desktop and online versions. Two stand out features of reckon are the hugely customisable reporting engine and it’s ability to handle progressive invoicing. This makes it the ideal software for tradies and others engaged in the building industry. For those who are price sensitive then the base version Reckon One may be the answer.

All of these software packages offer great cloud accounting programs that can make your lives easier.  Each one provides you with the basic tools you need for bookkeeping services and reports, including payroll.  Ultimately, the right software program is contingent on your unique needs and preferences.
