In 2007, a group of Filipino programmers saw the need to create an accounting and bookkeeping system, purely web-based, for micro and small businesses. The system quickly sold and was implemented by SMEs in the Philippines, in other Asian countries, and in the United States.
At that time, the programmers did not know that their seemingly small, necessity-driven innovation would serve as the infrastructure for one of the most comprehensive global business innovations: Smartbooks
The people behind Smartbooks have a strong background in examining and implementing bestof- breed accounting systems. The result is a homegrown, cutting edge cloud accounting system for SMEs in any industry and in any country setting. Smartbooks is a cloud accounting software that easy to use, has deep functionality, is accessible and is compliant with BIR reporting requirements.It is best for small- and medium-sized companies with their unique qualities and special needs.
And because Smartbooks is based in the cloud, other IT costs are eliminated, such as the cost of putting up and maintaining servers, hiring and maintaining an IT team, upgrading the software and spending for other support expenses.
Small and medium enterprises lie at the heart of a growth-driven economy. These companies must be made to flourish through world-class tools and systems, which can help propel them towards achieving their greatest potential and becoming globally competitive in today’s borderless world.
Smartbooks is a web-based application, hosted on Amazon Web Services that provides a seamlessly integrated platform to help small and mid-size companies run their business.
Aside from the robust yet user-friendly features and readily available tax reports in DAT file format, Smartbooks takes pride in its growing number of accounting partners and strategic partnership with Fasttrack Solutions who provide advisory and support to businesses.

However, we advise users to maintain copies of all data input into the System (e.g., source documents, supporting records, report printouts, etc.). Smartbooks adheres to its best practice policies and procedures to prevent data loss, including a daily system data backup regime.
Smartbooks is a cloud-based solution that has been available more than 99.8% of the time for the past four years. We rely on Amazon Web Services.
