Cloud Accounting

Accounting is fast becoming a key application to take advantage of the benefits that cloud hosting gives you.

As businesses continue to outsource their IT, most have now reached the tipping point where the benefits of cloud hosted data, accounting software and hardware infrastructure now outweigh the perceived disadvantages:


  • Single set of data, facilitating shared and mobile access,
  • Off-site data back-up,
  • Improved efficiency,
  • No infrastructure requirements,
  • Seamless update and version control,
  • Spread costs.

Perceived Disadvantages

  • Security – although continually improving,
  • Lock-in to ongoing monthly hire cost – although locally hosted software is moving to a similar annual licensing pricing model.
  • Price

We can provide you with a computerised book-keeping service on a cloud platform, either starting at data input stage or at the VAT Returns and Management Accounting production stages. We are familiar with the main SME cloud accounting suppliers, and can guide you on software choice.
