Where has the year gone!? The middle of October has arrived, and the year's end is approaching too soon!
Here are a couple of things to catch up on, with an exciting announcement at the end...
Feature Client – Area 41
With the silly season quickly approaching, you may be looking for a nice place to go for a meal out or something special to do with your team or group of friends, so check out Area 41. Recently we have attended their Gin Tasting Masterclass as well as their Wine &
Sign night. These were great excuses to get out and do something a bit different with the team (as well as how could we pass up something including wine…)
Keep an eye out for their next event!
Xero Tip – Attach a bill to the transaction – Reconciling
Reconciling… Every person’s least favourite thing to do… Well, we have a
tip for you to make things a bit easier!
When you are reconciling you can expand the transaction by clicking the blue ‘Add Details’ this expands your screen and from here you can upload a copy of the bill that relates to that transaction.
Recently we have teamed up with PaySauce, which specialises in payroll. They have been great to deal with and quick with supporting us with any questions we have had. If you are starting to think that Xero payroll just isn’t quite cutting it for your business anymore, go check out PaySauce!
If you would like to know some more, send us an email, or give us a call, we are always happy to help.
GST due Friday 28th October
We have been busy this month in the office with GST due bi-monthly as well as six monthly. If you haven’t already, make sure you are on top of these, so you don’t get penalised for a late filing.
GST Invoicing and Record keeping changes
IRD is making some changes to GST invoicing and record-keeping rules. No need to panic, as all that is happening is that they are catching up with what most businesses are already doing. These changes aren’t happening until next financial year, but we just wanted to give you a heads-up now.
Labour weekend is coming up...
We have another public holiday coming up soon, sometimes it seems as though we are always having a public holiday for something. This is just a quick reminder to look out for it in your payroll so that everyone is paid correctly.
We are Gold Partners with Xero!
We hinted at a big celebration coming soon in our updates last month… We are happy to announce that we have reached the Gold Partnership level with Xero!!
Of course, we are having a party to celebrate this massive achievement we have reached and to celebrate Shelley in how far her small business has come.
An email will arrive soon with your invitation to celebrate this achievement with us in November, so keep an eye out for that!
