WITH Ireland continuing to lead the way in terms of everyday use of mobile devices, including phones and tablets, the SME community now conducts large portions of their everyday tasks using mobile technology.
From invoicing to emails, reviewing accounts and checking their online banking small businesses can conduct their business affairs while on the move. This new level of flexibility allows business owners to save the one commodity that is most precious to them and their customers….time!
Roy says: “We are well aware of the challenges that face SMEs on a day to day basis and we realise the importance of each business owner having appropriate and up to date information at their fingertips. For that reason, and in line with our policy of making life simple for businesses, the TaxAssist App was born!”
The App is full of useful features with real time links to Surf Accounts online bookkeeping software along with other 3rd party apps like Receipt Bank and Autoentry. It contains up to date tax tables, handy tax tips for businesses across all sectors and tax calculators should you need them. You can also request a meeting with a TaxAssist accountant using the App.
According to Roy, the most popular features of the App are the mileage tracker and the bespoke tax calendar.
Roy continues: “A couple of areas where we recognised there was an issue for small business owners was keeping track of their business journeys and also having timely reminders of upcoming tax and accounting deadlines.”
“With our app you can track all of your business journeys undertaken at the click of a button including exact distance travelled and start and finish points, using the GPS on your mobile device. This data is then stored in the app and can be exported to a summary sheet when completing end of year accounts or travel expense claims.
“The app also includes a tax deadline calendar which each business owner can set up based on their own individual deadlines. They will then receive reminders at regular intervals informing them of any tax/ accounting deadlines for their business which are due in the near future.”
The TaxAssist app is now available to download on both Android and IOS, just search for TaxAssist Accountants Ireland.
