Accounting with Superfaktura, Part 1 – Introduction
Hey there! Last year we have told you that we are going to add accounting feature to Superfaktura. Since this is a very complicated topic to approach, we have decided to split it into multiple posts. Today, I will explain how is the accounting with Superfaktura going to work once we launch it.
As you all probably know, Superfaktura is not an accounting software. Its purpose is to help you manage your business administration that serves as the basis for your accountant to create tax returns and other necessary reports. It is not our intention to make Superfaktura an accounting program. We do not intend to compete with other IT companies that create such programs and we also do not want to compete with the accounting firms.
So what do we want Superfaktura to be? We want it to be the only tool necessary for entrepreneurs and SMEs to manage their businesses. However, that cannot be achieved without including the taxes, wages and accounting. Since all firms and entrepreneurs are unique, they all require a different approach.
Therefore, the feature will be different for:
- Entrepreneurs claiming flat rate expenses tax
- Entrepreneurs with a simplified accounting or simplified tax recordkeeping
- s.r.o (Ltd.)
The feature, services provided and the price will differ depending on which group you belong to. Each group is going to be explained and discussed in detail in another part of this series :)
The image at the top of this post helps to represent the main idea of Superfaktura. You (the client) use Superfaktura for invoicing and recordkeeping of your expenses. Your accountant simply connects through a secure connection to Superfaktura and downloads all your data into his own accounting program.
Once the data are in his computer, he uses the program to process all the records and uploads the final reports back to Superfaktura, or sends it directly to the authorities (either electronically or by Hybrid mail). As a result, your accountant saves majority of his time by not doing twice as much work – by not having to rewrite all your documents.
However, not everyone likes to keep the records in such a convenient way :) Very often people keep their records stored somewhere and then send them to their accountant all at once. Therefore, the recordkeeping and everything related (“What can I include into my expenses?”) is also going be one of the topics we will discuss in this series.
Anyways, that is it for today and in the next part we will take a closer look at the different types of entrepreneurs and the features, services they require, and the price. :)
