Everything you need to know about your finances – in one glance
Keeping you in the picture is what Connect does best. Connect Dashboard presents an online summary of your current business position, updated daily.
To take the stress out of managing your finances, Dashboard’s single-screen snapshot alerts you to payment deadlines, monies due and invoices paid. Better still, it gives you a snapshot of precisely how much you can safely take from your account every day, reducing the danger of going accidentally overdrawn or not setting enough aside for the taxman.
By proactively putting the latest facts and figures at your fingertips, Dashboard empowers you to make financially-sound decisions 24/7 based on your current figures, not yesterday’s data.
All your numbers, all day, every day
Connect Money Manager is an intuitive tool for viewing and organising your finances.
It provides you with the crucial ‘one number’ you always need to know – the amount you can withdraw from your business, after accounting for liabilities like tax and bills.
Money Manager is the most efficient way of organising your finances. You can check your business’ performance at a glance, see how much is in the bank or view your personal and business tax liabilities. There is also a personal tax tracker you can activate to monitor what your estimated Personal Tax bill will be at the end of the year and how much you should have set aside to date.
For a more detailed understanding of the figures, you can drill down into the data and explore the detailed dynamics of your company finances. It is all available at the click of a button, 24/7. You will wonder how you ever survived without it!

Yet another way from Connect that keeps your business on track, saving you time, effort and stress, all at the click of a mouse.
Don’t get caught out by IR35
Connect IR35 gives you maximum peace of mind, secure in the knowledge that your IR35 status is taken care of.
This simple but functional tool enables you to organise your assignment assessments in one place.

And if you ever need to prove your employment status, you have the back up of an expert legal opinion and advisers on hand.
It is easy to follow and even easier to use, helping you keep within the rules and on the right side of the taxman.
