Accounting automation and digitalisation FAQs

If you’re using spreadsheets, manual data entry, or multiple tools that don’t connect to manage your work, there are two ways you can boost productivity and reduce your workload.

Digitise your practice: By converting physical files into digital ones, you can access all your data online in one place so it’s much easier to submit returns, manage clients, and meet upcoming regulations like MTD for ITSA.

Automate your workload: Use software to automate manual tasks and save time. Go from typing out receipts to snapping a photo which automatically uploads and populates your online system. Instead of manually matching data between financial records and bank statements, set up your system to do it automatically. Automation (also known as digitalisation) is a great way to reduce your workload.
