At Carrick Aland we have a suite of digital, cloud-based tools at our disposal to assist your small business or farm so you spend less time on bookwork, allowing you more time doing the things you love.
Cloud Accounting Software – Xero
Xero provides business owners (and their accountants) with:
- Bank Feeds to streamline reconciliation and data entry
- Business Activity Statement preparation and lodgement
- Payroll processing and Superannuation payment
- Accounts Payable and Receivable functions
- Access from anywhere with an internet connection.
Carrick Aland are award-winning Xero Platinum Partners. Our team is Xero Certified to cover the many aspects of using Xero.
Receipt Capture – Dext
Dext is an innovative tool that allows you to take a photos of paper receipts and ‘email in’ electronic invoices and receipts which are then ‘read’ to extract key data — date, amount, supplier name, GST, etc — and sent to Xero for processing.
Farm and Business Budgeting – Figured
Figured was built for farming. It is a practical and efficient tool that allows you to ditch the Excel budget and become interactive with your planning. Figured provides a simple to use budget manager, livestock tracker and cropping gross margin planner.
“As the owners of a new small business, we very much appreciate Xero for ease of use in processing business transactions. It has been the right choice for our accounting needs and has saved us much time and effort while we are busy with day to day running of a small cafe and catering business” — Joy, Relish@ Highfields
“The conversion of our information from MYOB over to Xero has been fantastic; it saves me at least 3 hours a day in basic data entry, is easy to use and the support I get makes it all the better. The automatic emailing of recurring invoices each month saves so much time as do the suggested bank reconciliation options, I would not use anything else. I am more than happy to recommend Carrick Aland Accountants” — Kellie, CK9-SAS
