Software: One Size Does Not Fit All

The Benefits of using
Accounting Software

accounting software

Have you been using Excel spreadsheets to manage your finances? Or a free accounting package that no longer satisfies the needs of your growing business? Do you require payroll?

In general, the various accounting software programs do similar things. But you need to find the option that meets your requirements, integrating with other software you ustilise and enabling you to run your business properly.

At Pengwen Bookkeeping, we’re certified in Xero, QuickBooks Online, and MYOB. We also have experience with Navision, Leap, Agent Box and Pharmacy Software.

We understand that one size does not fit all. Accounting software has many advantages, which include:

  • simple and fast data entry processes
  • in-depth and comprehensive financial reports for better decision-making
  • the reduction of manual errors due to automation of processes
  • saving time when it comes to approving invoices and cash disbursements
  • saving staff costs on manual accounting
  • providing multiple people customised access to centralised accounting data
  • scalability support as the business grows
  • secure storage of vital company dates
  • ensuring requirements of payroll are met including payslips, year-end summaries, ease of workers compensation calculations, leave accruals etc.

Jo, you are an analytical numbers expert. When other professional bodies complement me on your services, I know it’s equivalent to the best service Sydney can offer on the realm book-keeping and pre-tax auditing. There needs to be another name for what you do. I know I couldn’t do without you. Thank you

From an individual in relation to their large property protfolio

I am very happy to recommend Joanne Brooker from Pengwen Bookkeeping. I am so happy to have met her as she has been a breath of fresh air in my business. Any time I do not understand my numbers I can just call her and she will give me so much clarity. Thank you. Thank you.

From Amanda at Streamlined organisation

I struggled to put “Joanne fixes all of our messes” into words. I hope the following short paragraph will work: Pengwen Bookkeeping has provided our business with excellent support in the areas of Reconciling, chasing debts, Invoicing and all areas of accounting. Their work has been a major factor in our business’s success, helping it to operate smoothly.

From Laruen at Hogans Plumbing

It has been a struggle to find reliable bookkeeping services. Through a very fortunate casual conversation I was referred to Pengwen Bookkeeping. Joanne and the team at Pengwen have been amazing in helping me to become compliant with the many complex needs of record keeping for small business. Before we engaged Pengwen, trying to keep track of compliance was a constant stress that distracted me from running and growing the business. It’s no coincidence that since engaging Pengwen we have had our best two years of performance and we are up to date with all of our tax reporting, Superannuation, and other regulatory compliance issues, and I don’t have to worry that it has all been done to a high standard. After Pengwen undertook an audit of our award compliance we have made some adjustments to the way we do things to avoid the many traps with awards and pay standards that can trap the busy small business operator who is blissfully unaware of the creeping non compliances that can occur.

From Frank at Hills Bushcare

Dealing with the staff at Pengwen Bookkeeping is an honest pleasure. Questions or queries, no matter how big or small, are managed in a professional and prompt manner. We have always been delighted with the level of customer service received and services provided. – Stevie Walker, National Trade Supplier Pty. Ltd. Based in WA
