Lightspeed Accounting is an integration that will plug into Lightspeed Retail and your accounting software and allow you to synchronize your bookkeeping information between the two. Once everything is connected and configured, your sales, payments, discounts, taxes, etc will all sync over to your desired accounting software every morning automatically.
Lightspeed Accounting is compatible with Average Cost accounts and does not support the First In, First Out cost method at this time. It can integrate with the following accounting packages:
- QuickBooks Online
- QuickBooks Desktop (Windows only, MacOS is not supported)
- Sage Cloud Accounting
- Exact Online (Netherlands, Belgium, United Kingdom)
While Lightspeed Accounting is extremely convenient once set up, the process of getting everything connected and configured does take a little legwork. These help pages will guide you through the setup process step-by-step.
