This knowledge and skill has developed across other software packages for example Xero and has been brought in to our business across all staff, who will be happy to help, support and train you and your teams. If you invest in a cloud accounting platform, we can set you up, support you and help you get the most out of it. We can also assist with the migration of data from your old system to the cloud.
But above all else, it comes down to our personal approach. Whether it is regular meetings (online or offline), tailored accountancy support or expert guidance that goes beyond cloud accounting, we are there for you when you need us most. When you are looking for cloud accountants you can rely on, look no further.
To answer this question first, think about how you store your financial data at the moment.
Most likely it is stored on a computer and is moved around over email or on a USB stick. This could be lost in a fire, flood, burglary, left on a train or simply dropped down the back of the sofa.
If someone had access to your laptop they still could not login to your cloud accounting software due to you using a secure password.
All of your financial data is automatically backed up and would remain fully up to date.
With cloud accounting, not only is there more than one backup, but your data is backed up in multiple locations. Cloud accounting company QuickBooks state that their data centres have 24/7 onsite security and strictly controlled access.
Cloud applications use encrypted connections when transferring data. This means that the data is encrypted before it’s sent from your device to the remote server and then again when it returns. This means that it cannot be intercepted and read by a third party.
So, in our opinion – yes, cloud accounting is safe.
Absolutely it will. We have clients from £10,000 per annum turnover to £10,000,000 across a variety of sectors.
You can access your accounts anywhere and anytime, on a variety of devices, phones, tablets, laptops, and desktops. This is provided you are connected to the internet.
Absolutely, you can connect to your bank and quickly process the downloaded transactions. Recurring transactions will just run each time, for example monthly invoices. These can be sent online rather than printing and posting. Rules can be established so that the software automatically knows where to allocate items.
There are many ways that the software itself will save you time but when you start to add apps, it truly becomes life changing, giving you back so much of your time.
Currently there are over 650 apps that will integrate with cloud accounting software, and these continue to grow.
Our team are based in Chesterfield in Derbyshire but we work with businesses across the UK.
