Is cloud accounting the right choice for your business?


Cloud accounting provides numerous valuable features that can save you time and increase the efficiency of your company. If you aren’t already utilising cloud accounting technology to improve your organisation, you should think about doing so.

Following the implementation of HMRC’s Making Tax Digital (MTD) for VAT initiative, many firms are already adopting cloud accounting and bookkeeping software to stay compliant.

Cloud accounting systems for small to medium-sized enterprises, such as Xero, Quickbooks, FreeAgent, and Sage, are MTD-compliant and allow you to securely communicate data with your team or accountant in real-time.

If you want to make the most of this powerful technology, you should seek professional help. Migrating into the cloud is easy – but picking the best service for you and setting it up correctly comes with its own challenges.

Which app is best for you?

Get assistance in selecting the best app for your requirements. One of the primary advantages of cloud accounting for organisations is a more efficient compliance process, which  will leave you with more time to dedicate to building your business.

Migration planning and testing

If your company is doing well, you must keep disturbance to a minimum. Examine your schedule carefully to choose the optimal time for your transition. Determine the migration order, and establish certain dates and criteria to define success. Make sure you can run both systems for a short period of time to handle  any teething issues.

Prepare for the unexpected

Plan for the effect on business users and your operations team, and develop a problem-solving strategy. Prepare for the worst by developing a disaster recovery strategy in case issues emerge.
