Firstly, what do we mean when we talk about cloud based accounting?
In its most simple form, a cloud based system is a book keeping package (some more advanced than others) that you pay for on a monthly basis. It is – in essence – hosted off site on another server. So, as modern technology takes us all closer to using cloud based accounting packages let’s take a look at the main pros and cons.
In summary, while many of you are choosing to move towards online accountancy packages, some of you still prefer the security of data and low cost of a desktop version. If you are considering which cloud accountancy package to choose it is best to invest time into doing the groundwork and making the right decision. Changing your mind later can become a major hassle, so remember to consider the needs of your business as you follow your plan for growth and development.
There are some accountancy firms who brand themselves in line with particular software such as Xero, Quickbooks or Sage. But we have decided that the best computer package by far is the one that a client is happy with and actually uses – whether it’s shoebox, desktop or cloud based – get in touch on 01904 787973and we will be able to help.
