Is the KLARA accounting software really free of charge?
Yes, the core offers of KLARA Business Software are completely free of charge — without any functional limitations. KLARA also offers additional services for a fee, such as the cash register system, which can be seamlessly integrated into the accounting program. These additional offers can, of course, be booked wanted.
Who is KLARA and what are the offers?
KLARA Business AG is a subsidiary of Swiss Post. KLARA stands for innovative Swiss business software for SME's, start-ups and small businesses: Our offerings include free accounting, payroll and order management as well as numerous additional fee-based offerings such as KLARA Cash Register, KLARA Online Shop and KLARA Online Booking. We want to automate as many activities as possible in the administration to make your office as simple as possible.
How does the accounting process in KLARA differ from other accounting programs?
KLARA's accounting program handles simple and redundant activities automatically with the support of artificial intelligence (AI). These activities include automated bank reconciliation, automated import of receipts and invoices, automated management of your suppliers, and reminder and dunning assistance for delinquent customers. Thanks to automation, the accounting process is significantly simplified and requires only a minimal understanding of accounting.
Can VAT invoices be created with KLARA?
Yes, KLARA can create VAT statements automatically: either effectively or according to the balance tax rate method. In addition, you can have KLARA calculate the VAT agreed and collected. An automatically generated statement can also be manually adjusted and prepared for the Swiss Federal Tax Administration (FTA).
Can receipts in foreign currencies also be posted in KLARA accounting?
Yes, purchases in foreign currencies can be automatically and correctly converted into Swiss francs. If a KLARA user buys something abroad, he can upload his receipt in KLARA. KLARA analyzes the receipt and recognizes as usual the supplier, the receipt date, the payment amount and other information. Likewise, KLARA automatically fetches the official conversion rate from the Swiss Federal Customs Administration and converts the amount into Swiss francs.
