Running a business is one of the toughest jobs there is. The owner of the business has to keep a complete track of all the things that is going around under the name of his company, from everyday expenditure of employees while in office to a monthly or annual turnover and even when it comes to giving salaries or filing out tax returns at the end of each financial year.

Having to do all of that without any proper trained staff to oversee it can be very hard and may result in errors that may look simple at first but may end up costing the company a lot of money if not corrected in time. Handling the finances of a company without proper trained staff or professional help may also result in a lot of legal ramifications if things are not done properly or in time.

In India, running businesses and companies have always been looked upon as a secondary choice to a career or a service job, but in the past few decades, with the availability of proper resources and the need of a proper product to fill a void in the market, the business industry has boomed, with several companies and businesses being opened up in India. This may range from anything like a small corner shop in a neighbourhood to a chain of restaurants to a network of multinational companies supplying thousands of products to clients worldwide.

While the bigger companies can afford to hire a dedicated accounts department with proper trained staff to handle all the finances of running the business, often time, the owners of small and mid level businesses and companies have to do it themselves. There is an option of expediting this job to other, dedicated companies which specialise in handling finances, but it can prove to be costly. Thankfully, with the rise in the usage of internet and computer services, there has been development of several types of accounting software packages, catering to the various needs of a vast range of clients, be it the owner of a small restaurant or a factory owner or a textile shop.

The versatility of these softwares is that they can handle the various aspects of finances of a company all under the same platform, without it being too complicated for the owner to operate. Specialised accounting software with inventory can even keep account of all the inventory a shop or supplier has in its stocks at any given time, aside from keeping an accurate track of the nature and number of sales and expenditures occurring each day.

Most such software also comes with cloud networking support, which helps to provide the necessary accounting data to each and every employee, whenever and wherever they may need it. Some softwares even integrate the calculation of local and central government taxes along with the finances, so that the company can file its appropriate tax returns in time without the fear of missing any deadline or facing any legal charges.
