Making the Move to Online Accounting

Welcome to the beautiful world of online accounting! Exciting isn’t it? Well, not exactly, at least for many, accounting has been seen as boring, frustrating, and often painful.

Times are changing for the small traditional accounting firm. Personal meetings are being replaced by more convenient and more accessible web conferencing, mountains of paper replaced by virtual data, fancy suits replaced by jeans and sneakers—the list goes on. These are just some of the ways that the accounting industry is changing.

Online accounting is relatively new in Canada. Online accounting basically means to offer accounting services in a completely virtual environment. Today, forward thinking accountants are making use of these new technologies to help make accounting less painful for business owners like you.

Imagine ditching your shoebox full of receipts and replacing it with an iPhone app that snaps pictures of your receipts. Or how about being able to view a snapshot of how your company is performing on a daily basis, not months after year-end? We live in the information age; we should know how our business is performing each and every minute of the day if we want.

Taking your accounting online is a huge step forward for the industry. It’s a game changer. But is it for you?

If you are a modern day business owner who is looking for ways to shave hours off of your busy schedule, if you want a more convenient accounting option and if you want to be in better control of your business thanks to new tools being available, then I would take a good, long, hard look at the virtual accounting options available today.

It’s time to move forward with the times and say goodbye to the traditional accounting firm.
