FAQ: Questions and answers all about accounting

Why accounting at all?

Proper bookkeeping correctly executed is not just the basis for your tax return but it also gives you information on the financial condition of your company. How big is your company's profit or loss? To what extent are your corporate activities profitable? How much do you owe? How much money is actually available to you? With the right accounting software, you have the most important figures in front of you at all times, so that you can successfully guide your company over the long term.

Simple or double-entry bookkeeping?

Not all Swiss companies are obligated to use double-entry bookkeeping. If the annual revenue of your company is less than CHF 500,000, then the law only requires conducting simple bookkeeping or back-of-the-envelope accounting. But there may be good reason to use double-entry bookkeeping, as you can read here.

Can't I simply keep my books with Excel?

Naturally, many work processes in accounting can be accomplished using Excel and Word. However, bookkeeping with Excel and Word is much more time-consuming than with dedicated software that unifies all work steps into an intuitive software package and even automates many of those steps. With bexio, you can even link your order management, your contacts and your eBanking with your bookkeeping! Even working together with your fiduciary can be implemented simply and efficiently. That not only saves time and nerves but also minimizes the likelihood of mistakes.

bexio is perfectly adapted to small companies, startups, and sole proprietorships in Switzerland. bexio makes small companies more successful, and there is even proof of that: 67% of companies are more successful after they start working with bexio!
