How this Business Accounting, internet-supported software (SmartBooks), works for thousands of Kiwi Businesses like yours.

Downloads Bank Statements>>

SmartBooks is a truly unique piece of accounting software. It is a highly automated financial reporting system based on the information in your bank statement. Simply put, gone are the days of slow and monotonous data entry where mistakes are inevitable and here are the days of fast, accurate, cheap and hassle-free accounting!

All of your cheque and deposit forms will have an extra panel on them printed by your bank into which you will insert an account code given to you by the SmartBooks system. This code identifies the nature of the transaction and is recorded by the banking system when your transaction is processed.

Each month a copy of your bank statement is sent to you via the Internet or couriered to you on a disk. Remember that this is all coded as you have done that each time you have made a transaction. You then put this information onto your computer and SmartBooks will download the data and as everything is already coded there is no need for any manual entry. SmartBooks then automatically calculates your GST, Profit and Loss account, General Ledger, Bank Reconciliation, Trial Balance and Budgets. EASY AS THAT! As long as you put the correct codes in when your transactions occur there will no way that you have made a mistake. What peace of mind!

The simple definitions of all the financial reports Smart Books produce are very helpful in making relevant sense of numerical data, that otherwise looks confusing. This gives you a greater understanding as to where your company is financially and helps you to manage with the future of your company in mind, putting much more power in your hands.

SmartBooks gives you:
  • GST report
  • Profit and Loss accounts
