Connect takes bookkeeping and accounting to a whole new level. Packed with intuitive features, it enables you to make decisions based on current information, not past performance. Drill down into transactions, submit expenses, track invoices, check your tax position, see how much you can withdraw - and it is all updated on a daily* basis.
