Cloud accounting is the solution if you have always found the administrative burden of keeping on top of your accounts too much to bear – and it can also make it easier to give your accountant the information they need to file your tax returns and complete other essential work on your account, too.
The Crawfords Cloud Accounting Team
At Crawfords our Cloud Accounting Team have experience with many of the main market leaders in cloud accountancy software, including both Quickbooks Online and Xero, so whatever package you prefer to use (if you already have a favourite), we can work with it.
If you’re new to cloud accounting, that’s fine too – we can help you to decide which is the best cloud accountancy software and get you up and running with it, so that you continually supply us with the important data we need to provide you with accountancy services from our end.
Like other areas of cloud computing, cloud accounting is excellent for collaboration. Rather than saving your accounts to disk and sending them to us once a month, once a quarter or once a year, the software saves all of your additions and makes them available to us instantly.
That means whether we provide you with payroll services on a monthly basis, or just file your accounts at the end of the year, we will always be working with the most fully up-to-date and corrected data possible, without having to ask you to compile it for us.
A Streamlined Process
Your role in this can be quite small – simply add new financial transactions to your online accounts as they go through your business books, so that it is an accurate representation of the flow of funds in and out of your business accounts.
This is due to become mandatory in the future anyway as HMRC’s Making Tax Digital campaign rolls out, and while there have been delays to the implementation of this and the introduction of mandatory quarterly reporting for small businesses, there’s no reason why you can’t prepare for it now and reap the benefits.
If you want to know more about cloud accountancy services and why they could be beneficial for you, regardless of the size of your company, contact us today for a no-obligation chat about this exciting technology.
