1. Use free online accounting
Wave accounting is the world’s fastest growing small business accounting software. It’s an online service, is completely free and has everything a small business needs from accounts software.
With online accounting, you can log in from anywhere to access and update your accounts. There’s no need to update the software or backup your data because they do this for you. You can give your accountant access to your account, then they can log in at the same time as you, to view, fix, and advise you throughout the year, then easily and quickly produce year end accounts.

Why pay hundreds of pounds on software installed onto your computer, or waste hours messing about with spreadsheets that don’t give you many instant reports?
2. Do your own bookkeeping
Online accounting has made it so much easier to do your own bookkeeping, you don’t even need to enter anything. You can either sync directly with your bank accounts, or you can download your transactions from online banking, then upload them to the software. All you need to do is tell the software where to put each transaction.
You can then produce many useful professional reports as often as you like, helping you run your business smoothly.
Why pay hundreds of pounds for a bookkeeping service, when you can quickly and easily do it yourself?
3. Use ‘a new breed of accountants’
In the age of ‘cloud-computing’ it has become easier and cheaper to set up and run your own business. Some accountants are taking advantage of this, moving from traditional offices to a more cloud-based service. They are probably based away from the high street or even at their homes, communicating online and meeting elsewhere. With much lower overheads, their fees should be much lower, yet you should get the same standard of service if you use fully qualified and experienced accountants.
Combined with the use of online accounting, some of these ‘new breeds’ offer a fixed price menu of services, payable in easy monthly instalments. So you know exactly what you will be paying, unlike the more traditional method of charging you by the hour, where the accountant can be rewarded for working slower!
