Getting your head in the cloud

Could you be missing out by staying out of the cloud? Cloud-based accounting software simply means managing your accounts through the internet, instead of using installed programmes – but with a whole range of added benefits. The end of the financial year is the ideal time to review what’s helping your business and what’s holding it back. In our experience, bookkeeping and accounting systems have a crucial part to play in business success.

The cloud is fast revolutionising the way businesses work and it’s the same for accounting. We’ve been so impressed by the advantages that we’ve made the move to the cloud ourselves and are now partners with one provider – and we are offering you a special deal to celebrate!

So what are the options? The main providers are Xero, Quickbooks, Kashflow and Sage. We were inspired to become partners with Xero because, in our view, the package offers the best value for money as well as:

More flexibility: Being based online means you can raise invoices and view historic invoices from anywhere with internet access, giving your business added flexibility.

More security: There’s no need to worry about backing up data or encrypting information, saving your business time and money.

More information: Xero can link directly to your bank account if it is with one of the main banks. That means you can see and track exactly who has – and hasn’t – paid you, in real time!

Special offer – get even more from the cloud!

To celebrate our new partnership with Xero, we’re making two great offers available to you. Buy Xero through us and you’ll receive a 10% discount off the direct subscription price for the first year. But there’s more! We’re also offering a free training session to anyone signing up to Xero by Wednesday 11 May!* That’s one hour’s training at your site or our office where you’ll receive one to one support to get the most out of your new cloud based accounting system. Sound good? Then you’ll need to act fast! To respond to our offer, please call us now on 0115 871 5842 or by email at:
