Setting up your own business? Start as you mean to go on!!
Are you new to business? Or are you thinking about branching out on your own in the near future?
If you do go self-employed you will join the 4.6 million (2015 figure so there are bound to be more now) people in the UK who are self-employed.
What do you need to think about?
The simple answer is quite a lot! A firm piece of advice is to start as you mean to go on. No matter what your self-employed career will be, make sure you keep good books and records of your financial transactions from the outset.
Not only will you have to work but you will have to manage the finances and market your business. It means busy evenings and weekends and an understanding family!!
How can you help to keep your free time?
Using a cloud accounting package from day one will allow you to learn as you grow and you will be able to see all your business transactions at a glance, giving you valuable insight as your business progresses and grows.
Once you are set up, it’s much easier to keep on top of your bookkeeping, look at your bank balance, raise invoices and use automated credit control apps.
At EA Assist we know all about cloud accounting software and we can help you get set up, show you what you need to do and introduce you to a wide range of add-ons and apps to compliment your software.
Add-ons such as ReceiptBank help you manage your business receipts quickly and easily, just snap/scan and send. There are apps for bank feeds, invoicing, direct debit management and card payment apps plus many many more!
If you are just starting out and would like an introduction to Cloud Accounting and the wide range of apps available then please get in touch. We run regular workshops introducing Cloud Accounting or would be happy to meet on a one to one basis.
