Creating a Book


IPA Books+ makes creating a new book an easy task by using the set up wizard.


From the IPA Books+ Portal, simply click on Add Product on the top right of the screen and select IPA Books+ to get started and let the wizard help you through the process.


The Choose a plan screen gives the options to choose functionality that you want to use in your book. These plans contain different modules level which you can choose to best sut your needs. You can always change the book modules later on. Refer to Customise your IPA Books+ modules to find out how.

Other than Payroll, the Core module is all you need to get started. This is automatically in Your Cart. The other modules can be added, scaled up or scaled down as needed giving the freedom to run your business based on your requirements.



One of the best things about IPA Books+, is the ability to mix and match modules and functionality so you only pay for what you use. Click Mix and match to completely customise your IPA Books+ Experience.



Once you have the plan that suits, click BUY NOW and follow the prompts through your purchase screen. Review the selected modules then enter your credit card details.


If you have selected 30 day free trial, Reckon will send a notification email prior to the 30 day free trial expiring.
