Comprehensive payroll management
All payroll information is centralised and available at your fingertips in the Payroll Centre. From here you can perform all payroll tasks, drill down to previous payroll transactions, enter time for all employees in a single window, create and schedule payments, email pay slips to your employees, store employee existing and past superfund details and even split their pays into multiple bank accounts.
The inbuilt security safeguards and information messages allow users to edit or void past payroll payments without the need to recalculate entire pay cheques while the Detailed and Streamlined Payroll Summary Reports helps make end of period reporting and analysis effortless.
QuickBooks Premier integrated payroll will save you time and money by avoiding duplicate data entry and will help you avoid hassles associated with incorrect payroll withholding.
Comprehensive employee record management
Record detailed employee information such as leave, wages, promotions and contacts using the Employee Organiser Wizard, as well as produce sophisticated summaries of your employees’ details and history. By storing your important employee information in one easy-to-access location you can better manage your employees and improve business efficiency.
Share data with up to 5 simultaneous users*
QuickBooks Premier increases efficiency by allowing up to 5 users to work on a company file at the same time. Smart security features can restrict access to confidential financial information, to help you control access to your data. * Three licences included, additional licences required for up to 5 multi-users.
With QuickBooks Premier you can record, track and account for foreign transactions regardless of the currency used. Tracking these foreign-currency transactions is as easy as selecting the foreign customer or supplier from your list; QuickBooks Premier takes care of everything else.
With multicurrency, you can also set up a fixed foreign price for items, or enter prices in your home currency and then have QuickBooks Premier calculate the foreign price based on the current exchange rate. The home currency refers to the currency that is used in the country in which your business is located.
Automatically track inventory items in different units of measure
You may buy the same item in one unit of measure, stock it in another, and sell it in yet another. QuickBooks can automate the conversion from one unit of measure to another as the item moves through your business, helping you avoid costly mistakes. That means you can buy and sell products in precisely the way your suppliers and customers prefer.
Monitor performance and analyse key projects
Job cost tracking is an extremely important part of a business. Job costing means tracking the expenses for a job and then comparing those expenses to the job’s revenue. This tells you which jobs are making money and which are not.
Job costing can also help you estimate more accurately. Estimating may be the most important - and most difficult - part of running a business. But unless you compare your estimated costs to your actual costs after the work is complete, you have no way to know if you are estimating too high or low, and no way of improving your ability to estimate in the future. The QuickBooks job cost reports make it easy for you to compare your estimated costs to actual costs.
Monitor business performance
Quickly view your business performance using the company snapshot tool. Customisable fields and graphs allow you to design a ‘snapshot’ that presents the most significant information that impacts your business decisions – with the ability to drill down into transaction, customer or supplier details.
More than 100 reports and graphs can be generated within the Reports Centre to help you keep a close eye on your business. With just one click you can also drill down into reports to find detailed financial information. You can even convert the report into a PDF file for email, so the recipient views the report just as you see it in QuickBooks.
Increased efficiency with advanced tools
Save your business undue costs by utilising QuickBooks email functionality. Invoices, statements, estimates, purchase orders, sales orders, sales receipts, adjustment notes and reports can all arrive on your suppliers’ or customers’ desktop within minutes. There is no need to separately track your contact lists - you can easily synchronise your contact information with Microsoft® Outlook.
