The Cloud Demystified 

Cloud based accounting software is the biggest change to accountancy since double entry bookkeeping. We recommend Xero.   It will transform your ‘accountancy experience.’


  • ·         No need to install, maintain or host an accounts program, saving you cost and time.
  • ·         Access to your data any time any place.  You can do your bookkeeping while you wait to pick the kids up from school.
  • ·         Beautiful technology that’s easy and intuitive to use.  You’ll enjoy working with it.
  • ·         The flow of information – for example from your bank or to your customers – flows pretty much automatically saving you time.
  • ·         Great real time information so you have up to the minute information where ever you have internet access.
  • ·         We can advise you in real time not ‘when you bring the books in’.

 ‘The Cloud’.  Let’s be clear about what ‘the cloud’ means.  It means your program and your data are held centrally, typically on a huge professionally managed computer in Milton Keynes, and accessed through the internet.

We like Xero cloud based accounting solution because it is so nice to use, intuitive and visually pleasing.  It integrates really well with bank feeds, and has easy reconciliations.  What it makes possible is for you to do your business (pay the wages, send invoices, receive bank statements etc.) and the bookkeeping is done behind the scenes automatically.  This saves you huge amounts of time and it saves us time too – automated transactions set up correctly don’t get misposted! 

This means that we work differently.  We check your records regularly during the year; we don’t wait until the year end.  We help you as the year unfolds so we can make a difference to you by interpreting your numbers in real time.  Spending our time advising you not ‘doing the numbers’.

‘The Cloud’ is revolutionizing accountancy.  Be part of it.
