Online Accounting Software Systems

Choose the right accounting software package and you can save time and money, make fewer mistakes, and obtain useful management information.  However the choice can be bewildering.

Our team has used and installed many different cloud accounting packages and is able to guide clients through the maze.

We can help you by:

  • Establishing the basic bookkeeping needs of your business
  • Deciding whether a cloud based or a local solution makes sense
  • Choosing and purchasing the right software for you
  • Tailoring the system to your businesses requirements
  • Training your staff and help them establish sensible and controlled routines
  • Supporting you through non-routine transactions
  • Producing reliable management information
  • Visiting on a regular or ad-hoc basis to check that things are running smoothly

John Kerr’s online accounting software service allows our clients to enter their accounting transactions online, through the John Kerr website, via a secure internet connection.

  • You can submit your income and expenses online

  • You can import bank transactions automatically to save even more time

  • As we also have access to the system we can also help as necessary, and when it is time for your end of year accounts to be produced we can access your information

  • You can keep up to date with your business from anywhere in the world, 24/7

  • You do not need to buy accounting software, or pay for future upgrades

  • You can capture expense receipts on the move with an integrated mobile app

  • You don't have to back-up data to guard against computer crashes

  • You have the benefit of our expert help in a very cost-effective manner

  • You can manage the system without the need for in-depth software or accounting training

"I've been using IRIS Openbooks since the beginning of 2014 and have been extremely pleased with it and the functionality it offers.  I can see at a glance how my business is performing financially due to the variety of overviews that Openbooks offers from daily business expenses to liability. 

Openbooks also calculates my quarterly VAT return and is linked directly with HMRC for immediate submission, approval and a collection date and ensures payment is made.  It has made the complicated world of business expenditure easy." 
George Williams

The staff at John Kerr were extremely helpful in getting my consultancy business up and running. The cloud software they set me up with is very easy to use. It keeps track of my mileage, expenses and also links to my business bank account. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending their services.”
