Like many other professional services, accountancy these days best serves its clients when it is provided as an online service. It makes it more accessible and simple from the client point of view. We take a look at how Boox really is the best form of accounting for the modern contractor.
Take a ride on the average commuter train and it seems like everyone now has a smartphone, laptop and very often even an iPad as well. Regardless of what technology people use, its clear that most adults regard the internet not just as a means of communicating with their friends, or finding out what’s going on in the world, or entertaining themselves with cat videos on YouTube; it is an essential tool in many different aspects of our lives.
So why should accountancy be any different? Doesn’t the idea of carting a shoebox filled with receipts down to your high street accountant and trying to find a parking space seem a little … well … old-fashioned? And that’s even before you start considering the fees that he or she charges.
This is especially so when we consider the advantages that technology has given us such as speed of communication and the ability to send vast amounts of information through a telephone wire. It means that services like accountancy can be done much more efficiently. By being able to provide a service to more clients, we are able to pass our cost savings back to our clients, creating a virtuous circle.
It means that our clients get not just a better value accounting service but a better service all round – you are able to check what tax liability you have as you earn so that you can put the right amount aside to pay your taxes.
You have access to your accounts 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. But when you need the reassuring presence of a personal accountant you can have that too – via email, skype or even with a good old-fashioned telephone. We can also arrange a direct meeting should you really feel the need to clarify any urgent issues with your business.
