Cloud Accounting

Why Cloud Accounting?

Anytime, anywhere.  With your accounting software in the cloud you can access your data or complete a task on your mobile phone, tablet, laptop or desktop.  Your data, wherever you are, at any time, night or day.

Always in sync – You, plus anyone you authorise to have access, can work on your data at any time, in real time.  There is only one set of books.  

This saves time and reduces the chance of errors.

Help is at hand – If you have a question about something you are doing in your software, your accountant can access the same data and talk you through how to complete the task.  You may not be in the same room, but you are both looking at the same data in the same software.  Problem solved.

Always the latest version – with cloud based software, you are always working on the latest version of the software.  No need to process a system update or upgrade to a newer version when yours is not longer supported.

Making Tax Digital will affect all businesses with turnover above £10,000 per annum.  Having cloud based accounting software if a huge advantage and puts you in a great position in readiness for these new reporting requirements.  Find out more about making tax digital here.

Jenna Taylor – Accountant at Business Works

For me it is the real time interactivity with the client. When they have a query / problem I can guide them through a transaction and it also helps with own ongoing support of the client and their continuous training from us.

Kate Roberts – Accountant at Business Works

What I love about QB is the ability to see exactly what my clients can see at the same time.  This helps me to resolve any queries they may have efficiently.  It also allows me to provide ongoing training to clients in the comfort of their own office. 


Sindy Smetham – Accountant at Business Works

The bank feed allows my clients to keep on top of their transactions, which gives them timely management information.

Jo Tomlinson – MD at Business Works

I love the reporting.  We so many reports all set up and ready to go in the software, it is easy for business managers to get up to date relevant reports on their business performance at the touch of a button.  As a business owner myself, I think this is invaluable.

Quick Books has been a revelation to our Business, I can’t thank Business Works enough for  recommending it to us.

The way that it synchronises with our on-line ordering system and website has saved us at least one day a week if not two.

This software is so user friendly and has saved us time and money.  Kedel Ltd are a fast growing, transactional heavy business, and quickbooks is more than adequate to support us both now and into the future.

I like that quickbooks reminds me when I need to invoice clients, the reports for outstanding invoices makes debt collection more proficient.

I really like the front dashboard that gives a quick snapshot of what is going on with the business.
