What is Accounting Software?

Accounting software is used to automate and keep track of a wide range of finance-related business needs. The level of features required depends on the need of the buyer. However, at the core of all accounting software is the ability to manage accounts receivable, accounts payable, general ledger, and invoicing and billing.

In addition to these, some of the more robust accounting solutions offer accountability tools such as automated reports for tax investors and boards of directors, analytics tools for budget and sales forecasting, employee payroll and tax tools, as well as expenses management. Other features of accounting software might include integration with bank feeds, POS software and other online payment gateways.

Many accounting applications also include tools for billing and invoicing. These tools include online payment acceptance, invoice generation, invoice historical records, late payment reminders, time tracking for billable hours and projects, as well as automated recurring billing.

Accounting software allows you to work closely with your accountant by keeping all accounting documentation on one platform. You can store and automatically back-up data and export this information through your desired method, whether that is by print or electronically. Generate reports for exporting such as Profit & Loss, or Expense reports.

Depending on factors such as location and industry, accounting software can ensure users meet industry standards and compliance as well as internal managerial requirements, producing reports and analysis for these internal and external audits.

Businesses of all sizes, as well as freelancers and contractors, can benefit from the time-saving features of accounting software such as invoicing and bookkeeping. They can also help users to better monitor their financial flow. This improvement in cash flow visibility can help prevent future financial damage or loss, and help to make better financial decisions.

Accounting software ranges from basic to more advanced systems. This includes scalable solutions for growing businesses. Along with all-in-one accounting solutions, there are also a number of apps offering specific services such as accounts payable and account receivable software. Accounting software is also a key component of many enterprise resource planning suites.

Key Features & Benefits

  • Accounts payable, accounts receivable and general ledger management
  • Invoicing and billing tools
  • Expense and Profit & Loss reports
  • Cost calculation and time tracking
  • Compliance, tax and regulations management
  • Cash flow reporting and analysis
  • Sales and budget forecasting
  • Client online payment processing and tracking
  • Generate, share and export reports for accountants, directors.
