What is Cloud Accounting?
Accounting software has traditionally been tedious, draining far too much time and money from your business. Cloud accounting software has revolutionised the industry, giving you instant access to your data from any location or device that you choose to use. The information is always up to date, secure, with no need for back-ups. Best of all, it means both the business owner and the accountant are working from the same, up to date information.
In 2014 we set up a bookkeeping department to assist small clients and SMEs to take over the bookkeeping function. The principal advantage is that we use cloud-based technology to provide up-to-date results which can be viewed by you as a business owner and Business growth team to react quickly to upswings and downswings in your cash and profitability.

Xero automatically matches transactions together based on amount, date and reference, which are then reconciled in one click! You can also set the software to recognise repeating transactions, it’s never been easier.

With Xero, you never have to worry about updates, these are free and operate automatically for you. Yearly back-ups are also a thing of the past, information is instantly and automatically backed-up. Your data is secure and always ready to access.
