Automate your invoices

One of the most rewarding times in running your training business is the moment when you submit your invoice for a job well done.

In the beginning, you might simply create invoices using a Microsoft Excel template.

You might even be creating your invoices in Microsoft Word and send them via email.

(But, that sounds so ‘1999’!)

  • Send your invoices automatically and receive notifications when the money arrives
  • Give your accountant access to your online records so you s/he can file your taxes on your behalf?
  • Run reports which instantly show spending patterns at the click of a button?

These are just several of the many reasons why it makes sense to use online accounting software.

Less time chasing expenses and filing claims. More time consulting and making money.
