Using cloud accounting puts information in your hands wherever you are.
Our business is 100% in the cloud and we wouldn’t have it any other way. But we see a lot of hype, particularly around cloud-based accounting services and related apps, and we’re keen to help businesses harness the technology in the right way.
There are several cloud accounting providers and although we have our favourites we give our clients objective advice on what’s right for them, not what’s right for us.
We have a number of blogs about the benefits and perils of working in the cloud which tell a story you might not read elsewhere:
- Cloud accounting may not a good accountant make
- This must be my profit, it says so on my phone
- I stopped doing my books when I realised I was making them worse
Although there can be some pitfalls along the way, for most businesses being in the cloud is the right thing to do – but make sure you get proper training so you get the most out of the technology you choose.
Embrace the cloud – but avoid the hot air!
