Accountancy Software for Small Businesses

Deciding what accountancy software to use can be a daunting prospect but it doesn’t have to be.

Even the smallest business could benefit from using accounting software as opposed to spreadsheets or a paper based system. There are many packages on the market, all with their own pros and cons, essentially though they all have one thing in common and that is to help you manage invoices, expenses and generate financial reports about your business.

At AJR & Co Ltd we use a variety of different accountancy software to meet our client’s needs


Xero Logo

Xero is an accounting software with a focus on real time information and an extensive range of add on’s to help you tailor it to your business needs. The easy to understand dashboard shows a current view of the bank balance, Xero balance, cash in and cash out plus any outstanding bills and invoices. As Xero is cloud based it can be accessed from anywhere, anytime and with free, unlimited online customer support what could be easier? Xero free trial 30 days


Some of our clients use Quickbooks to manage sales, expenses and keep track of daily transactions. Quickbooks offers templates for invoices, estimates and reports which can be branded to show the business logo for a professional touch.  Quickbooks free trial 30 days

Both Xero and Quickbooks allow you to grant your accountant secure access to your accounts to increase efficiency.

Receipt Bank

Receipt Bank takes the hassle out of data entry leaving time to focus on other areas of business. Our clients find the choice of convenient ways to upload their bills and expenses a real advantage, whether they use the mobile app, drag and drop or email to transfer the data ready for processing.

Once transferred the program extracts the key information efficiently and accurately before sorting ready for posting into the accounts software ready for us to use in compiling the accounts. Receipt Bank free trial 14 days
