How to Automate Your Business Finances: Tools That Save Time and Money

If you’re like most business owners, you are always looking for ways to save time and money. One great way to do that is by automating your finances. There are a number of different tools out there that can help you do this, and we’re going to discuss some of the best ones in this blog post. So whether you are just starting out your business or have been running it for a while, read on for tips on how to make your financial tasks easier!

How tools improve your business

Tech tools are anything that you can download and use to streamline your business. Tech includes software, mobile apps, or subscription services like Quickbooks Online; it’s all digital so there’s no need for bulky paper documents!

I want to talk about how using tech tools can make your life easier and more efficient. When people are getting situated with new technology, they often feel intimidated by the thought of learning something outside their realm – but it doesn’t need to be!

I hear often one reason why don’t do their bookkeeping is because of time. Guess what having great tools will save you time!

Tech tools are changing the way we do things and they’re making our lives easier in many ways. One of these tech-based innovations is a bookkeeping service that can cut back your time spent organizing finances to just 30 minutes!

Tech tools can be your best friend when you’re overwhelmed by all of the information. These devices help take care so that nothing falls through the cracks, and they make sure every little detail is covered in order to give yourself peace of mind!

Spreadsheets

Spreadsheets can be an excellent way to organize and track your data, especially if you’re just starting out. They’re also really easy to use!

While spreadsheets are a simple and easy way to organize your data, it is important for you not just rely on them. You need something more robust like an accounting program or database if the goal of tracking finances in this manner was original because there were too many numbers flying around that could be difficult to keep track of without some type of systematic approach.

There are things that you can’t track in bookkeeping software that will need to use a spreadsheet:

Cell Phone -This expense is another one of these items that you probably find in your personal account, so it’s important to track.

Home Internet-You can also claim part of your internet bill as a tax write-off when working from home.

Home Office-You can deduct some of your expenses from taxes if they are related to running a home. This includes rent, mortgage interest, and homeowner’s insurance for example!

There’s no need to scan a pile of receipts anymore! Just share your spreadsheet with a tax person and get all the information in seconds.

Google Sheets is my go-to tracking system. It’s simple, easy to use, and allows you the freedom of data without any constraints!

QuickBooks Online

With QuickBooks Online, you can keep up with your business and finances in one place. The program is easy to use so even if it’s only just started out as a small company there won’t be any problems managing all aspects of bookkeeping from here on!

Here is what QuickBooks offers in tracking:

ADD QUICK BOOKS

Quickbooks Online is an amazing tool that allows you to streamline your business finances with the power of automation. You can link any bank account for direct deposits, download transactions from all accounts into one place (saving time!), and assign categories quickly!

Dubsado

Dubsado is an amazing tool for any business owner to use. It helps you keep track of your clientele, schedule their appointments with ease, and make sure they never miss out on something important again!

Dubsado has streamlined the process for us, saving hours each month! We send contracts and invoices in one step with their easy-to-use questionnaire design.

QuickBooks Time

With QuickBooks Time, you can track your time with the click of a button. You’ll be able to see how much money has been spent on what tasks and at which points in order for things like invoicing or payroll processes to come into play!

If you’re looking for a more efficient way to manage your business finances, it’s worth considering automating your bookkeeping process with tools like spreadsheets, QuickBooks Online, Dubsado, and QuickBooks Time. These tools can save you time and money while ensuring that your books are always in order. Schedule a consultation with me today to learn more about how these tools can work for you!
