Xero vs. DIY Bookkeeping

Bookkeeping. Is it dull? Yes. But is it necessary? Definitely. A task that often gets left to the last minute, bookkeeping often ends up being completed on late nights or even weekends. The problem is, if you always opt for the DIY, last minute approach, then you simply don’t have the time to find a better way. Well, until now.

Bookkeeping blunders

The issues with DIY bookkeeping stem from the simple fact that you already have so much to do. Running a business is hard, and the last thing you need is this seemingly never ending task looming over you. Yes, by taking this approach you’re in full control, and on the surface, saving money by not out-sourcing tasks. However, by doing this, you open the door to inevitable blunders, such as:

  • Losing out on tax breaks from missed, valid expenses
  • Small, human errors that build up leading to time consuming corrections
  • Missing deadlines, creating stress and even fines
  • Falling behind with invoicing

These are not only costly and time-consuming, but they also mean that you can’t get an accurate forecast of how your business is actually doing, making it much harder to create a viable plan for your future.
