Farm Accounts: Reached the Cloud?
As technology has advanced in Agriculture and more bespoke equipment is being used day in day out, is it time for farmers to reach for the cloud? Can farm accounts software meet this challenge…..Yes they can!

Over the past few months we have been working closely with Quickbooks Online to create and develop a template nominal structure to assist the process of recording farm accounts. In doing this you can not only report on financial years but more importantly on harvest years. This can then produce crop margin accounting and enable monitoring data in real time.

We can now reveal that this template is live.

If you wish to discuss how this will benefit your farm accounts, please contact us for further information.
