cloud accounting

About the cloud

Think about when you use internet banking, every time you access this data, you are using the cloud. The cloud is a platform to make data and software accessible online anytime, anywhere, from any device. Your hard drive is no longer the central hub.

why do you need it?

Time to make a change

More and more businesses are moving to cloud accounting and seeing the benefits associated with these. But if you are still not convinced, check out some of our main reasons why you and your business could profit from a move to cloud accounting.

Save time with automation

Don’t waste time posting and chasing invoices. You can automatically generate invoices and reminders, meaning you won’t have to manually keep track of debtors.

Work from anywhere

Worry no more about maintaining spreadsheets or installing a programme on one computer. The cloud allows you to log in to your business’s account anywhere, anytime and from any device.

Value for money

Instead of paying a hefty one-off fee for accounting software, the cloud allows you to spread the cost with a monthly subscription via direct debit – helping you to manage your business’s cash flow.

Real-time business information

With the cloud, you can get an up-to-date snapshot of your financial position as automated bank feeds allow you to keep track of your business’s balance sheet in real time.

Secure data

As your data is saved on a secure cloud server, it is constantly backed up, so you do not need to worry. Even if your computer crashes, everything is still saved and easily accessible.

Intuitive and easy

Cloud software has been built with non-accountants in mind. The simple layout and helpful guides make it easy for people who do not have much experience of managing financial accounts.

Multiple users and permissions

If different people manage different elements of your business, it is easy to add multiple users and tailor permissions so people with specific job roles only see what they need to.

Instant updates

No need to wait for a new version of software to be installed, with the cloud everything is constantly updated by in-house developers and it is all part and parcel of your monthly subscription fee.

Easy collaboration

With the cloud, you can share your accounts with your accountant throughout the year and work together collaboratively. No more annual visits to your accountant with a pile of all your records.

The perfect match

“The cloud and accounting software are the perfect match – working with the cloud will give you a real-time overview of your business’s finances, improve collaboration with your team and save your company time and money. It doesn’t matter if you are a start-up business or a large corporation, the cloud is a platform to make data and software accessible online anytime, anywhere and from any device meaning you can always stay connected with your data and your accountant.”
