The Cashbook - FAQs

Is it more trouble than it is worth?

Honestly, no. It is so easy to get the most out of it. The Cashbook saves hours and hours of time when you are getting the accounts ready, or the VAT returns done.

I have sat at the kitchen table surrounded by piles of paper, scribbled notes and figures that never seem to add up to the same mount twice. I hate doing my accounts with a passion. Using the Cashbook makes a tedious, frustrating, irritating job much less of a chore.

I’m a small business; I don’t need an accounts package.

I agree, accounts packages are brilliant if you need that level of detail and information. Most small businesses need to keep track of cash flow, debtors, income and outgoings. That is it.

The Cashbook is a handy source of financial information that means once a figure is entered you can use it for VAT, accounts or reports. You don’t need those scraps of paper, the back of that envelope – or those headache tablets.

My accountant sorts that stuff out, I can’t be bothered.

Fair point – and I really understand that point of view. I have turned up at my accountants with carrier bags of receipts in the past. However, using the Cashbook means that getting my accounts together is so much simpler, it also means that the time it takes my accountant to prepare the final accounts is much less than normal – and so it is much cheaper for me.

It also means that as the months go by I can keep a close eye on what is going on in my business. I can run my cash flow effectively, I can see at a glance if anyone is slow in paying and take action in a timely manner.

Is it complicated to use?

No – it is really easy – suspiciously so! Like every Decameron product, the Cashbook learns as it it goes along. It draws from your list of clients and contacts for details, when you add an item or work type it remembers it for the next occasion. Reducing repetition is what Decameron is all about – less repetition means more time for you.
