As we have seen in previous entries, cloud computing or cloud computing is a very valuable tool for managing work in the company, since it greatly facilitates the accessibility of data and processes. One of the departments of the company that can abandon traditional software to move to the cloud is accounting. In recent years, multiple bookkeeping services in singapore have emerged that facilitate the tasks of billing to freelancers and SMEs. These are some of its characteristics:

  • Being in the cloud, they allow you to work from anywhere and have the team distributed among different points, as well as reuse the data and easily collaborate with other companies.
  • Its functionalities depend on the chosen application and plan, but they usually include billing, accounting, budgets and purchase orders, tax management and reports, among others.
  • The vast majority do not need installation. In some cases they may require a small executable on the computer, but the data will still be in the cloud.
  • They allow to easily increase or decrease the number of users without the need to pay individual licenses.
  • Very economical: they are based on the payment for use (monthly or annual fee) and some even have a free version with limited functions. Many offer the option to try the free paid version for 15 or 30 days before acquiring it.
