Owning and operating a small business can be challenging. There are so many moving parts, and you need to make sure every department is running as smoothly as possible. Even if all the wheels are spinning in the right direction, you still have to factor in the parts you can’t control, like getting paid quickly and efficiently.
The fact is, 79% of business owners can’t pay themselves due to late payments, according to Fundbox. If small businesses got paid for all unpaid invoices at once, they’d each be able to pay themselves about $40,000!
Collecting payments from customers isn’t always a timely process. If you’re still managing your invoicing with paper, making the switch to email payments can save you time and help you get paid faster. With email payments, customers can pay you from any device with the click of a button. Here are four benefits of accepting email payments through your ERP software.

Since the release of Sage 100 version 2018 last October, Bennett/Porter has allowed time for Sage to release the first Product Update – as well as time to familiarize ourselves with the new version – before upgrading clients to 2018. We are pleased to announce that we are ready to begin scheduling for upgrading Sage 100 to 2018.
In mid-January we released a blog asking if the new tax tables mean more money for people's paychecks. In that post, we reported that The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which was passed by the federal government in December, resulted in changes including increased standard deductions, removal of personal exemptions, increased child tax credit, and revisions to tax rates and income brackets effective for 2018. We also let you know that the IRS was working on updating the income tax withholding calculator and the Form W-4.
