The Winter Release introduces Magic Bank Reconciliation, which speeds up SMEs’ daily bookkeeping by automatically calculating their target reconciliation balance, and flagging transactions already imported into KashFlow as pre-reconciled. All users need to do is review, approve or amend the pre-ticked transactions before completing the reconciliation, saving them time and leaving them in control of their finances.

These transactions are imported using Automatic Bank Feeds, a feature that includes auto-matching rules that suggest the best matches for these transactions among existing invoices and purchases recorded in KashFlow. Users can also set their own rules to automatically create invoices, purchases and transactions direct from their bank feed.

The Winter Release also includes a significant investment in KashFlow Payroll, with the introduction of Automatic Enrolment (AE) assessment, to assist business owners in meeting their legal obligation to provide employees with a workplace pension, as set out by the Pensions Regulator. The new assessment capabilities enable small businesses to easily comply with AE requirements and avoid potential fines. The new AE service enables business owners to assess their workforce, automatically enrol qualifying employees and calculate the required employee and employer contribution levels.
