It has been a very busy year for us at the Smart Business Centre. So this year we have decided to close the ofﬁce early for Christmas and our last day for December will be 19th. The staff have deserved a well earned break over Christmas so we won’t be reopening until the 12th of January 2015.
Thank you to all our clients and business associates and we wish you all a very merry Christmas. 2014 has seen many business successes with our regular client of the month feature. It was very difficult to decide on the winner each month as so many businesses were well deserved of the honour. In light of that, the client of the month will continue in the new year, with our annualawardsinNovember2015fortheclientofyear. Xero accounting software has featured strongly in our office this year, and with the new developments that this company is making, we will continue to use Xero. It is a very cost effective way to keep track of business income and expenditure, complete GST requirements and we have been completing the end of ﬁnancial year accounts within Xero to enable better reporting to clients.
Cloud accounting is the way of the future so we are embracing it. A new service we have adopted this year is SBC Bookkeeping. Vanessa in the ofﬁce is Xero certiﬁed so can train clients on the Xero accounting package. She also looks after all areas of bookkeeping for clients whom wish this service. If you are having trouble with chasing money from your customers, she can handle that for you too. Bookkeeping can be a task that many business owners wish they didn’t have to handle, if you are one of these people give Vanessa a call. She will be back at work in February. Have a safe Christmas and New Year, enjoy a break and celebrate with family and friends.
See you in 2015. Alison Blanchett
