The appliance of science – or making life easier with a little application!

There are some really smart people out there writing some really smart applications to help you with your bookkeeping – we use some of them ourselves and we are always happy to recommend and assist our clients in doing the same.  

The following list isn’t exhaustive, but many of these we have personal experience of, and we know where their strengths and weaknesses lie.

We’ll not only recommend suitable software; we can often help you get the very best out of your investment in it with advice and training.

Accounting Programs

 
Xero[1].png
 

Xero

An online accounting program that can be used for so many aspects of your businesses financial needs i.e. Preparing quotes, stock management, fixed asset register and depreciation etc.

Clients either subscribe for this themselves and give us access, or they ask us to subscribe and we charge them a monthly fee as part of the retainer. Xero is very helpful because it can do everything you need and it has a mobile app functionality. The financial reporting is also very good, and we use it in our company ourselves.

 
Quickbooks[1].png
 

Quickbooks online

This is an online accounting program and the monthly subscription is less than Xero but still a very good program to use. It is mobile friendly and easy to understand.

 
FreeAgent[1].png
 

FreeAgent

This is a free online accounting software developed in Scotland and works well for quick preparation of accounts. It doesn’t allow for ZAR currency at the moment but the Anlo team is working on this but can still be used for smaller account preparation because it doesn’t publish the currency.

 
Sage[1].png
 

Sage Online

Online accounting program that is developed in South Africa. It is less expensive that Xero and works well with Consulting companies, in our opinion.

Sage Pastel

This is a desktop accounting package and is a more traditional accounting software that we also use for clients’ accounts preparation. We have a company licence and use this to prepare accounts for small businesses that want their accounts done, once a year and don’t want to sign up for a retainer with us because their business is too small or not VAT registered.

We have used Sage Pastel at Anlo since we started the company and we are still paying the yearly subscription fee because it is a very good package to use and it has its place.

Payroll Programs

Intercode

This is a desktop payroll program that we use in Anlo ourselves. We have used this since 2010 and we find the support to be outstanding. The program is also easy to understand and the payroll reports are informative and descriptive.

It is also easy to prepare the EMP501 submissions and IRP5 generation. You can also maintain Leave balances and keep track of certain HR requirements.

This is a lovely online payroll program that is used by SME’s. It is user friendly and very accurate and the reports are amazing.  Doing EMP501 and IRP5 generation is also very easy.

Sage Pastel Payroll

This is a traditional desktop payroll program and works well with Sage Pastel Accounting program. It is more expensive, but the facilities and support are worth it.

It is ideal for companies with higher volume employees but works best installed on a PC.
