FullSpeed Provides Spreadsheet-like Macros in Cloud-based Accounting Apps: QuickBooks Online, Xero, and Others

Madison, Missouri, September 26, 2014 , Most people who have used word processing software know what a macro is: a group of commands you can put together quickly to do a repetitive job, like adding blank spaces at the beginnings of several lines, or changing underlined words to italics on an entire page. Wouldn’t it be great if someday macros could apply calculations to multiple lines of data in applications like QuickBooks Online, Xero, or other cloud-based accounting software?

That day is here! FullSpeed lets you set up simple formulas in its own internal spreadsheet and applies them to data in other programs at the press of hotkey. In fact you can have multiple macros defined, each with its own unique hotkey.

What kinds of things can FullSpeed do? …calculations involving multiple columns of an invoice, column subtotals and totals, calculate discounts or freight surcharges or special taxes, autonumber lines, provide customized messages like “A discount of $123.45 is available if paid by October 15, 2014”, and a lot more. FullSpeed supports a wide range of Excel-compatible spreadsheet features such as numeric and statistical functions, IF logic, date/time functions, text manipulation, and plenty of ways to format results: currency, numeric, date/time, etc.; even the ability to display decimal amounts as fractions.

FullSpeed works in invoices, estimates, purchase orders, sales orders, bills, checks, sales receipts, grids, etc.–almost anywhere you can enter accounting data. It is compatible with any Windows-based Web browser which supports Microsoft’s UI Automation technology, such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Microsoft Internet Explorer. FullSpeed is not limited to browser-based apps though: it also works in some native Windows applications like QuickBooks desktop editions. (Though FullSpeed can work with a variety of application types, it has mostly been certified to work with accounting applications in this first release of the product.)

Many cloud-based accounting applications have limited space available for data or calculated results. For example, neither QuickBooks Online nor Xero currently supports custom fields in the line items area of invoices. But FullSpeed overcomes this problem in two ways:

(1) It supports storing data in the Description field of sale or purchase items, and can extract it to use in calculations. For instance, users can store a per-unit shipping weight in each item’s Description, and FullSpeed can use it to calculate the total shipping weight for an invoice.

(2) FullSpeed’s Scratchpad feature allows macros to temporarily store results of intermediate calculations, so they don’t have to be written to the target application where no space may be available to hold them.

Maybe the most unique feature of FullSpeed is that it works directly on data in the target application. Users get to see the results of calculations immediately while working in an invoice, purchase order, or other form. There’s no need to export the form’s data to do calculations in Microsoft Excel or some other program, and no need to re-import or Copy and Paste results that were calculated elsewhere.

FullSpeed is priced at $119 for a single-user license, less for multi-user licensing. FullSpeed is compatible with Microsoft Windows XP (SP3) and all later versions including Windows 7 and Windows 8.

A downloadable 30-day free trial and step-by-step examplesare are available from FullSpeed’s main Web page: http://www.goflagship.com/products/fullspeed.htm

UK Tax Investigations On The Increase

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is under huge pressure to increase tax receipts and reduce tax leakage. As a result, HMRC has a growing appetite for launching investigations where it considers there is a reasonable possibility of collecting under-declared tax.

Intensive bursts of compliance activity are targeting business sectors considered to be high risk, and HMRC is sharing information internally more effectively than ever before, thus increasing its chances of identifying potential anomalies in taxpayers’ affairs. “The tax authority has created dedicated common interest teams, such as a unit focused on high net worth individuals and offices which deal exclusively with large businesses,” explains Valerie Watson, Moore Stephens tax partner who has assisted many clients on tax investigations. “Non-domiciled individuals taxed on the remittance basis are now handled by one tax district, again enabling easier cross-referencing and sharing of information.”

Tax inspectors may also be making use of new media, such as the internet, to identify individuals with valuable assets (such as holiday properties that are being let out for income) or undeclared profits (for example, from trading through internet auction sites).

New information sharing agreements between national tax authorities are also having an impact. Following the Tax Information Exchange Agreement between Liechtenstein and HMRC, the details of UK-resident taxpayers who hold accounts or assets in Liechtenstein will be passed to HMRC. “This goes hand-in-hand with the Liechtenstein Disclosure Facility”, says Valerie, “which provides an opportunity for UK taxpayers to declare any unpaid tax voluntarily in exchange for reduced penalties and immunity from prosecution.”

Another notable example that reflects the changing times is the agreement reached between the UK and Switzerland whereby the Swiss banks will levy withholding tax on UK taxpayers’ bank accounts held in Switzerland and pass the sums concerned to HMRC via the Swiss tax authorities. They will do so without identifying any taxpayers, but this nevertheless represents a marked change in attitude by the Swiss Finance Department.

Specific events can also trigger tax investigations, as Valerie explains: “HMRC is currently investigating approximately 500 UK-resident holders of HSBC accounts in Switzerland, using data passed on by an ex-employee. HMRC has been using this data to open Code of Practice 9 investigations – which relate to cases of suspected serious fraud – without apparently screening to check whether taxpayers have already made appropriate disclosures. HMRC’s new Offshore Coordination Unit has started contacting the remaining account holders to offer them the opportunity to make a disclosure.”

This highlights the fact that individuals and businesses can find themselves subject to a tax investigation without there necessarily being any actual wrongdoing. However, given the complexity of the current tax system and the scope for differences of interpretation, any detailed HMRC investigation stands a reasonable chance of finding some element of under-declared tax somewhere in the affairs of an individual or a business.

Bookkeeping Is Imperative For Large And Small Companies

Keeping accurate records and well organized data is important to the financial well being of companies big and small. Good bookkeeping may not directly contribute to the profits of a business, though some bookkeepers would argue this, it important to the to their fiscal well being. Besides the possibility of increasing profits, there are many important reasons to maintain accurate and organized records.

One of the most important reasons to maintain accurate records is in case the business needs to borrow money for an opportunity to grow or for other expenses. Lenders expect to see solid bookkeeping and to fully understand the solvency of a business before granting any loans. Bookkeepers must keep track of the money that the company or small business has, but also be able to determine whether the owner will qualify for funds in the future. Additionally, companies or small businesses that rely on outside financing to survive must regard this as a top priority.

Accurate bookkeeping is also important in generating data for owners and managers to make management decisions, whether this is on a daily, monthly or quarterly basis. Current ledgers will indicate accurately whether a customer is past due and which are carrying balances on their lines of credit. Without this information, the company cannot effectively respond to patterns of late payments or nonpayment of customers. Additionally, these losses over time will eventually hamper a companies ability to stay in business or have enough to grow.

Businesses also use their records to determine their financial stability. They can see if their gross profits are in line with their projections. Large or small business bookkeeping helps owners decide if the prices of their products and services are sufficient to cover their costs. Additionally, this information is critical at tax time. Accurate income and expenditures are a must for a company to figure their tax liabilities for the IRS.

Small Buisnesses Mid-Year Payroll Tax Solution

ezPaycheck 2010 payroll software, from Halfpricesoft.com, makes it simple and easy to change payroll software or begin using payroll software for the first time – even for companies in the middle of their fiscal year. Traditionally, small businesses have had two choices for automating their payroll. Either purchase expensive, complicated software with more functions than they need or hire an accountant. Designed specifically to be run by business owners or managers without training as an accountant, ezPaycheck provides all the features a small business needs without a hefty price tag, complicated interfaces or features they won’t use.

But one thing often stands in the way of making this change for improvement…

“We’ve heard from many customers that they held off changing to ezPaycheck for too long because they feared the momentous task of transferring data mid-year, and the window for such a change between fiscal years is very small,” said Halfpricesoft.com founder Dr. Ge. “But when they finally did it, they found it was incredibly easy to make the change, even in mid year. We want to get this information out to other business owners and managers before they wait longer than they need to.”

Forms for entering year-to-date data on ezPaycheck’s intuitive interface has always been simple, but the 2010 edition includes enhancements that makes the software even more user friendly. The easy-to-use interface enables businesses to convert over to ezPaycheck in just a few hours — not days. Smaller companies will spend even less time on the conversion.

At only $89 per installation, ezPaycheck 2010 is affordable for any business—no matter how large or how small. Business owners and payroll managers can try ezPaycheck 2010 totally risk free by downloading it from www.halfpricesoft.com. This fully functional version is free to try without obligation for 30 days. A sample database is included with the download package to make sampling ezPaycheck 2010 payroll software even easier, so no time is wasted entering test data. After the trial period, a license key must be purchased for continued use. All the data user entered will stay there.

Wisteria Formations Releases New Complete Company Formation Guide

Wisteria formations, the UK’s leading online company formation agent, confirms the release of their complete company formations guide. Following an increasing number of enquiries from clients, Wisteria Formations can announce the release of the complete company formations guide. Wisteria Formations is one of the UK’s leading company formation agents. The company is backed by Wisteria Chartered Accountants, the accounting, tax and business plan specialists. They have been able to draw on all of this knowledge to produce a complete guide to incorporating a company in the UK, available for free download on their website, www.wisteriaformations.co.uk.

Andrew Millet, Director of Wisteria Formations and Wisteria Chartered Accountants, explains what prompted the release of the guide, “We often receive enquiries from clients regarding what they need to think about when setting up a company, as well as more specific queries. There is a lot of information available on the internet, but it was not easy for clients starting out for the first time to know where to look for it. In addition, you can’t always get all of the information you need in one place. The aim when producing our new company formation guide was to help our clients understand the process of forming their company and the things they need to think about. We have ensured it is easily found by placing a PDF version of it on our homepage in an accessible format.”

The company formations guide is designed to help people in a wide range of situations, from complete beginners to those who may have incorporated a number of companies before. It deals with issues arising at the conception of the business such as which business structure to use and takes you through the formation process step by step dealing with the issues you need to consider after formation. The majority of the guide is about how to go about forming a limited company and responsibilities you take on by doing so. This is useful for many new company formations as often people start a limited company without being fully aware of the responsibilities that they will take on as a director of a company.

Other information on the internet comes from many different sources and you will often find conflicting advice which can easily lead to a misunderstanding. The complete company formation guide aims to rectify this problem by taking people step by step through everything you need to consider when forming a limited company.

Wisteria Formations are happy to offer free support and advice when working through the online company formation process, through their UK customer support team. This, along with this the creation of the new company formations guide, will hopefully help to improve the understanding of limited companies in the future.

BT Business Has Launched A New Web-Based Accounting Application, To Replace The Complex Software Blighting Smaller Firms

BT Business has launched a new web-based accounting application, to replace the complex software blighting smaller firms, forcing their employees to work longer hours.

xero-online-accounting

The launch of Xero, a new online tool designed for firms and their advisors, is supported by new research by BT Business which finds that almost 50 per cent of smaller business staff work extra hours to clear their current workloads, with 41 per cent admitting that they actually waste work time because of poor technology and systems.

Accessible f r o m any internet or mobile connection, Xero is aimed at helping businesses access, update, review and control their finances in the downturn anywhere, f r o m any device. The simple, software-as-a-service (SaaS) package will provide customers with 24/7 secure online access to bank transactions, invoices, reports, VAT returns and management reporting.

Chris Lindsay, general manager at BT Business applications, said: “Customer feedback is that traditional accounting packages are complicated to use, and can only be accessed while in the office. As a result, managers put book keeping off and spend too many late evenings or weekends in the office. Owner managers tend not to be finance experts, and dread having to file their accounts with these systems. The research shows that employees are working harder and longer during the downturn anyway, so we hope that Xero users will instantly be more productive and redress an often dire work/life balance.”

Xero is available as a free 30 day BT Business trial. Features include a real time dashboard of a firm’s transactions, online accrual to keep book-keeping up to date, daily bank reconciliation function, web-based accounting f r o m anywhere with an internet connection, expense claim processing and reporting for financial advisors.

Andrew Sandiford, head of Business Advisory and Assurance at Target feels that Xero eliminates all the problems of not feeling ‘part of the client’s business’ for his accountants: “With Xero, you can access a client’s accounts at any time. More importantly, you know you are looking at the same ‘version’ of the accounts as the client because there is only one ledger. Xero is fantastic for us, as it means we can offer ‘real-time’ advice, basing our recommendations on the up-to-date financial data we can see.”

Delivered as SaaS, Xero can also be implemented quickly without the upfront licence fees, maintenance or upgrade costs associated with on-premise software. Cloud computing applications like Xero reside online and are accessed by a simple web browser. Businesses only pay for the resources they use.

BT Business provides everything f r o m hands e t s to applications to help smaller firms work, share and manage common operational processes including Ribbit for Salesforce which is designed to improve sales team productivity, eSignature and CRM systems salesforce.com, Netsuite and SugarCRM.
