Cloud Based Accounting – it’s the future

October 15, 2015

Cloud based accounting is the biggest thing to accounts since the introduction of the computer to the modern practice more than twenty years ago. Its unique ability to be accessed from anywhere at any time on any device makes it as flexible as todays modern businesses require. The ‘Cloud’ is just a term to describe that your data is held on a central computer which you access via the internet, meaning that no backups need to be saved and expensive software updated annually.

The bottom line is that cloud accounting can take the hassle out of the day to day bookkeeping of your business and take up less of your valuable time.

We can offer discounted rates with the Freeagent package which we personally recommend and offer full assistance and training with. It is designed to be intuitive and easy to use with as much jargon removed as possible, being straight forward and logical. As it is supplied through ourselves we can access your accounts at any time to offer assistance, guidance and run off any necessary data to produce the year end accounts. Other features include automatic bank uploads and analysis, invoice creation, full cash flow reporting, receipt capture with smart phone camera, payroll, vat and taxation.

For more information on cloud accounting please contact Roland Darbishire, our IT and Systems Manager.
