At Deans, we have always embraced new technology and cloud accounting apps are no different.
Even before the cloud became mainstream, we were offering our clients access to a number of accounting platforms – notably QuickBooks and Xero being the main ones.
Now, everyone on our team has been trained and certified by both QuickBooks and Xero and has the necessary experience to help you get your business set up with cloud accounting software.
Why use cloud accounting software?
The simple answer is, because it provides a real-time, easy-to-read overview of your business finances whenever you need it. And, because it runs in the cloud, you can access it from any device, even your phone.
That means there’s no need to wait for your year-end accounts to see how your business is performing, or to be tied to the office. As long as you have internet access, you’re good to go.
The data is always up to date as all cloud accounting packages link to your bank accounts, credit cards and PayPal accounts and automatically download the latest information.
There is also a whole universe of add-on apps and plugins which provide additional functionality for different sectors or types of business. For example, Autoentry lets you reduce the amount of paper you process by scanning invoices directly into the accounting software.
It’s safe and secure, too. Forget about backups – it’s all taken care of by the cloud. The same goes for software upgrades – no more downloads, no more messing about with disks, or worrying about hardware compatibility. As long as you have a web browser, it just works.
Cloud accounting providers meet and exceed current data protection standards, storing your information in secure data facilities.
Cloud for MTD
Cloud accounting applications are also the easiest way to comply with the Government’s Making Tax Digital legislation which requires businesses to record and report online.
