Making Tax Digital

Making Tax Digital is a key part of the government’s plans to make it easier for individuals and businesses to get their tax right and keep on top of their affairs. HM Customs and Excise have taken a major steps forward in this ambition with the introduction of Making Tax Digital: VAT-registered businesses with a taxable turnover above the VAT threshold are required to use the Making Tax Digital service to keep records digitally and use software to submit their VAT returns from 1 April 2019.

Business Central is fully accredited for making tax digital and will allow for full submission of the VAT return from the application:

Outlook Integration

One of the advantages of deploying a Microsoft solution is the integration and interchangeability of the wider Microsoft stack. Gain valuable insights into a customer from an email within outlook.

Create invoices or orders directly from inside the Outlook client. Business Central will look at the wording in the email and predict and suggest what the email is requesting.

Create the invoice and send via email whilst also posting directly back into the Business Central solution.

Directly link the email and invoice to a payment service such as PayPal to allow direct payments to be made from the invoice.

Job Management

One of the key challenges to a professional service business is the control of spend and assurance of sales within a project. Business Central allows you to manage the project financially:

  • Align budgets to actuals for each step of the project – down to individual costs if required
  • Import timesheet data and align to costs pre built into the application
  • Align purchase costs to the project when posted to the ledgers
  • Auto create sales invoices either fixed price, time and materials or milestone based. This can be at individual project or batch level
  • Calculate work in progress – multiple calculation options available

By managing the projects through the Business Central application, your organisation can see profitability by project within the confines of the overall finances of the company.

More than just core functional capability

Business Central uses predictive analytics to turn your data into business decisions; from predicting if sales order is going to be paid to using historical data to pinpoint when sales are going to convert and analyse the cash flow on that basis.

Full integration with the Microsoft Office solutions allow for auto publishing data from excel into your finance solution and full interactions from within outlook including the ability to create and post sales documents without leaving email. The user interfaces allow for simple access and use of the solution and it is fast to implement, easy to configure, and simplicity guides innovations in product design, development, implementation, and usability. Business Central is available both for an on premise or a cloud deployment.

Design the user interface to suit your business, allowing easy navigation to core features. Videos are embedded in the application for training and Microsoft Power BI sits within the solution for those graphical reports that pull out key KPIs and data for the business, specifically aligned to the user role.
