Software vs Accounting and Payroll Services in South Africa

So, you have succeeded in starting and growing your own business from scratch. Now, when it comes to your accounts and payroll, do you bring in outside assistance or do you keep doing things yourself? Your choice is this: DIY accounting software or accounting and payroll services in South Africa.

You might be tempted to bring in the help of a high-profile accounting firm, just because the thought of doing your accounts yourself might be a little daunting. But, if you opt for some easy-to-use accounting software, you’ll find your accounting and payroll done easily, accurately, quickly, and at much less expense.

Sounds too good to be true? It’s not! Here are some of the benefits of choosing accounting software:

The Advantages of Software over Accounting and Payroll Services in South Africa

  1. Affordability

One of the most obvious and attractive advantages of using software over professional services is the affordability factor. Professional services handling accounts and payroll require a steady, ongoing retainer, and this has to cover all manner of costs to the company providing the service.

With software, on the other hand, the costs are on an annual basis. Well informed business owners, who like seriously easy accounting and payroll software, know about the need for annual maintenance plans. The annual renewal includes email and telephone support as well as product updates, legislative updates and new version releases.

The price of the software itself can still be far more reasonable than a single month’s service fees for some professional accounting firms, and the subscription fees can be negligible by comparison.

  1. Speed

Speed is another huge factor when it comes to the advantages of accounting software. By taking control of your own accounting approach, you can dedicate the right amount of time to your business’s books. This means that you don’t have to wait for your accounts to be handled on someone else’s schedule, and your own accounts always get priority.

  1. Ease-of-Use

If your business is fairly basic in terms of its income, salaries, and deductions, there’s no need to turn your accounts over to professional services. And, even if your business is slightly more advanced in terms of its accounting needs, good accounting software offers a very simple, step-by-step approach to the process.
