Oz accounting for SMEs: EzyCashBook+

EzyCashBook+ is an Australian-made program aimed at taking the pain and time out of bookkeeping and Business Activity Statements (BAS).

Following installation you are greeted with the Home Menu containing links to the program's main sections. There's EzyCashBook (process transactions), My BAS (calculate BAS), Trading (create and track quotes, invoices, credit notes and purchase orders) and Budgets & Planning, which includes business plan templates and budgeting tools. There's also a "My Advisor" section for miscellaneous transactions. Your accountant can fix those up later (the file can be saved and e-mailed).

The interface is simple and each window includes a "Page Help" pane that can also be hidden. There's also an extensive help section, telephone support for 90 days after installation and a library of 3500 articles on business matters and regulations for the Australian market.

Up to three business profiles may exist, and can be password-protected. Each pro­file may have two bank accounts and two credit card accounts, and you can import transaction records from Internet banking. EzyCashBook+ handily reconciles all data, and creates a range of reports.

To calculate your BAS, just select the dates for the BAS period and the program creates a report. The maker of EzyCashBook+ also offers a free secure online BAS lodgement service. Your accountant can access the site to check your BAS before it is lodged, and there's an archive facility to save your statements.

In brief:

A comprehensive offering for small business. Excellent help and business information sections will teach the basics of bookkeeping.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
