A quick guide to accounting software

Business, Finance - 04/11/2021

Using automated systems to manage your accounts has plenty of benefits. But if you’re new to digital accounting, you might be unsure of which software to use. There are a lot of different systems out there, so make sure you do your research. After all, you want a system that works best for what you need.

At Numero, we specialise in LEAP and Xero. Both have their advantages. We’re sharing some of the main ones to help you decide if either works well for you.


Xero is one of the most popular accounting systems in the UK. It helps with invoicing, inventory, payroll, and expense claims, as well as import your banking, credit card and PayPal data. It also has an app that lets you keep track of your accounts, even when you’re out of the office. In a remote-working age, this is a real plus.

An automated system like Xero means getting your books done faster. You don’t have to manually import bank transactions or send invoice reminders. Xero does the work for you.  Store your data safely and in one place, keeping your numbers secure against threats, but easy to access for you and your employees.


Largely aimed at small to mid-sized law firms, LEAP is dedicated to developing legal practice management software that helps generate efficiencies, profit and improve service.

The legal industry never stands still. And law firms need accounts management systems that can keep up. LEAP develops innovative features that provide everything you need to run a legal practice working within the most common areas of law.

As law firms practise more remote working, legal professionals have had to adapt to different styles of work, including managing accounts. Being a cloud-based solution, LEAP gives you the freedom to work when and where it suits you via any device.

Training at Numero

It can be daunting to adjust to a whole new system, especially if you’ve been managing your accounts manually. You might not have the time to get to grips with a whole new system while trying to run the other aspects of your business.

That’s why we’re here to help. We want you to get the most out of your accounts systems, and you can’t do that if you don’t know the ins and outs. As an accounts consultant for LEAP, we provide expert training in both LEAP and Xero systems. 

Think of us as an extension of your team. It’s our job to get you up to speed on these systems, so that you get more time to spend on the other aspects of your business. 

What else do we offer?

As well as data conversion training, we provide outsourced bookkeeping services to businesses who want peace of mind, leaving their accounts in safe hands.
