  • If you are thinking about changing your accounting package it is important that you do your homework on what packages are available at least 3-4 months prior to your end of financial year. This lead in time will allow you set up and trial a new accounting package so that if you like what you see, you are ready to start on day one of your new financial year. X ero allows you to trial their accounting system. If you want help with setting this trial up please email me on sue@a1officesupport.co.nz.

  • Cloud based systems are the way to go and that is why so many people are shifting to Xero as their accounting system. But that is not all you need to consider.
