Why the Beginning of April is the Ideal Time to Switch Accounting Software

If you’ve been considering switching from your complex and difficult-to-use accounting software to a simpler solution, now is the perfect time.

With a new tax year almost upon us, it’s time to update your systems and really get your accounts sorted for the 2017/18 tax year. Here is why you should start making the change now.

New tax year, new you

April 2017 marks the beginning of a new tax year; a time when many freelancers and small businesses are thinking about their bookkeeping. Since you’re already organising your accounts, it makes good sense to change your accounting software at the same time, as you won’t have to worry about it later in the year.

The beginning of April is the ideal time to switch as you won’t have to work across two systems when you’re preparing your accounts and tax returns.

Less hassle

Because you’ll be importing transactions from this tax year, you won’t need to input as much information into the new system as you would if you were beginning in the middle of the tax year. This means less faffing around when creating your new account and an easier transition between accounting softwares.
