Using the best cloud-based accounting software is essential in running a successful trades and services business. With job sites changing regularly and not always spending much time in office, being able to access your accounts and reporting when on the go is critical in allowing you to properly manage your trade business.

A cloud-based accounting package allows you to easily collaborate with co-workers, accountants, bookkeepers and your admin support team. The best accounting software packages also integrate with the top tradie job management software, so information travels automatically between the 2 systems with no double data entry.

The top 3 cloud-based account software options for tradies are Xero, MYOB and QuickBooks. All are great platforms, though Office Shed’s preferred accounting software is Xero.  Xero is the strongest in terms of functionality, reporting and ease of use in our view. As such we recommend to all our tradies that they use Xero for their bookkeeping and accounting software needs.

Xero accounting software gives you fantastic visibility over what is happening within your business’s accounts. You’ll know what invoices are due and when, be able to compare periods and measure your businesses performance live from Xero’s fantastic dashboard. You’ll also be able to generate a great variety of management reports with the click of a button.

Xero integrates with other great accounting apps which Office Shed recommend to our Tradie clients. There’s Hubdoc and ReceiptBank to manage supplier invoices and receipts. Float to help with your budgeting and cashflow. And Chaser which automates debtor management making sure your cash is coming in on time.
