To improve the service we can offer to our clients, we encourage the use of cloud-based accounting. The main benefits of cloud accounting are outlined below.
Access anywhere, any time
Cloud accounting software is different to traditional computerised accounting software because it’s all based in the cloud, instead of on a single computer. This means you can access your accounts from any internet-enabled device at any time, from wherever you are.
Most software providers now offer the option to register for “bank feeds” which is a very secure and safe way of transferring the information from your bank statements into the cloud based software. This leads to time efficiencies and gives you up to date information and eliminates the possibility of errors due to “missed” transactions.
Reduction in costs
Cloud accounting software is paid for by a small monthly subscription rather than the large upfront costs of many traditional accounting systems. Many also offer free apps for both Android and iOS devices. The automated services for accounting software also save on man hours. As well as being cheaper in the long run, if you sign up through Ash Accounting Ltd you’ll receive an instant discount on your monthly subscription against the retail cost.
Increased security and peace of mind
With your accounts information based in the cloud, you’re no longer limited to working through only one device. This reduces the risk of losing all your important and essential financial information should something happen to your chosen accounting computer. Regular backups of your accounts are performed too, getting rid of the need for you to perform regular, manual backups. Cloud software offers secure connections to protect your privacy and data online and is fully GDPR compliant.
Easy and instant access for Accountants
Cloud software allows you to share your accounting data with us, as we can log in and work on your accounts in real time with immediate access to your live data. This method of record keeping leads to efficiencies and better communication allowing us time to focus on helping you make improved business decisions.
Cloud accounting is a great way to save on time and money, while at the same time increasing the security of your financial data. This means we can greatly improve the service we can provide you with. Please contact us to discuss your book-keeping and accountancy requirements so we can tailor our service to your needs.
