04 May Xero – Cloud Accounting – Is it time to get online?
If you’re already using cloud accounting, maybe Xero, QuickBooks, Sage, FreeAgent or one of the other software suppliers in the market, you know the benefits that cloud accounting can bring to your business. We are Xero platinum champion partners and can help with setup and running cloud software as well as any queries or support you may need.
We’ve looked at some of the benefits of using cloud accounting and here are our top thoughts: –
- Access – you can access your accounting records from anywhere with an internet connection. This can be on your computer, laptop or mobile phone, giving you real time information so you can act on current information
- Cost savings – electronic record keeping can have time savings from manual records and savings from on side accounting systems which may have costly installation or subscription costs. You won’t be responsible for any hardware costs, just the monthly subscription price depending on the subscription taken out
- Security – with cloud accounting, there are usually security measures in place. For example, Xero requires 2 step verification for logging in which means others can’t access your data without your permission. Data is always backed up so you don’t need to worry about your hard drive failing and losing all of the information you’ve entered
