Knowing there is an error in your accounts is one thing but finding out how it occurred is another.

This is particularly relevant if a customer is invoiced incorrectly – you can quickly identify who made the error and when.

Track Income

Is it seasonal and do you generate more cash sales than credit/invoice sales? Big Red Cloud gives you full visibility of money coming in to your business.

The cash book is where transactions relating only to cash receipts and payments are recorded. Ask any business owner in the restaurant trade and they’ll tell you that the cash book is really important as they have to keep track of small cash purchases that would otherwise slip through the cracks.

Reserve Charge VAT

Value Added Tax (VAT) is normally charged by the person supplying the goods or services. However, under RCT, the person receiving the goods or services (the principal contractor) calculates VAT and pays it directly to Revenue. The principal contractor accounts for VAT as if they had supplied the service. This is known as VAT reverse charge. It applies to subcontractors involved in the construction industry only.

Nominal Ledger

Customer Statements

Customer statements are really important. They allow you to summarize all the invoices and payments for a customer in a single view. Generally, businesses will send statements on a monthly basis. Statements are a great tool to help customers pay faster as they can see the total invoices outstanding that they still have to pay. It also displays an overview of all transactions between you and the customer. With Big Red Cloud it’s super easy to create and email statements and print a copy to post via regular mail as well.


The creditor’s ledger will help you track the money your business owes now and into the future. Be watchful of suppliers that issue invoices erratically as there is nothing as frustrating as two invoices arriving together – it can play havoc with your cash flow.

Contractors VAT

RCT is a withholding tax that applies to certain payments by principal contractors to subcontractors in the construction, forestry and meat-processing industries. The rates of tax are 0%, 20% and 35% and will depend on the subcontractor’s compliance record with revenue. All RCT transactions are submitted through the Revenue Online System (ROS).
