Cloud Accounting is easy to use

100 days a year on admin - Dunhams Accountants Cloud Accounting Solutions.

You Spend a 100 days a year completing VAT returns, payroll, invoices, chasing debtors, and billing.

Do you run a business with just a few people? Do you do all of your own business administration? If so, we’ve worked out that you are probably spending around 100 days a year completing VAT returns, doing the company payroll, raising invoices, chasing debtors, reconciling ledgers and paying suppliers, all at the expense of your leisure time.

All of this time has nothing whatsoever to do with building up your business, generating income or finding new prospects and customers.

Then again, you might think it would be easier if you are running a larger business and have your own finance department. Not necessarily so. An in-house finance department can be an expensive overhead. It can become a place where many business owner/managers are reluctant to go because it’s usually too busy and confusing.
