Move to a New Bookkeeping System

Move to a New Bookkeeping System

I’ve often been asked, “When is the best time to move to a new bookkeeping system?” Unfortunately, there is no one “right” answer. Why would you move anyway? The best reason at this stage is to have your accounting online as there are many advantages to this.
The best time is at Financial Year end (usually 30 June) but its also very possible to move to a new bookkeeping system at the end of any Month or Quarter.
