1. Streamline bookkeeping processes

When your cash flow gets out of control, you can also end up forgetting about BAS payments to the ATO. Make sure you use real-time bookkeeping software that will help sort out overdue bills each day. The software will enable you to log in to the system and provide you a summary of the amount you still owe to your suppliers and vice versa. Once your streamline your processes when paying creditors and suppliers, you can ensure that weekly payment schedule is not forgotten. This results in paying off each bill before the due date.

One way to accelerate the pace of your business operations is by taking advantage of the proliferation of technology. This is why some business owners are more inclined into multi-task to finish the task because everything can be done using new and intelligent technology.

Your employees no longer have to chained to their desk to collaborate or access essential documents because it can be done anywhere, anytime and from any device. When you embrace technology to increase accessibility to customers, you will not only save time but reduce labor-intensive tasks.
3. Enhance your filing system
When it comes to ATO compliance, business owners often undertake filing, but this does not necessarily mean they should retain the old-fashioned way of filing receipts and other essential documents. There are bookkeeping programs that will enable you to file and manage receipts and invoices that can reduce processing time. You can also use cloud-based programs so you can retrieve the receipts and invoices whenever you need to. Anyone involved in the decision-making process can also access the information regardless of their location.
