The benefits of switching your business to Cloud accounting

If you’re finding your accounting software is time-consuming and laborious, it might be time to move your business accounting to the Cloud!

Let’s face it, unless you’re really into it (like we are!), accounting can be one of those tasks that quickly slips to the bottom of the pile, especially if you’re a small business owner. Slaving over the books during evenings and weekends can really take the joy out of running your own business!

However, there is a much better way that will not only save you time but also make your entire invoicing stream so much easier.

The answer is the Cloud! Working in the Cloud might sound technical, but in fact, it’s simply using the internet to access data, such as when you check your bank account online. The Cloud is a way of making the data and software you use available online at any time so that you’re no longer confined to a computer hard drive with limited access and updates.

And this neat piece of online programming has helped thousands of small and medium-sized businesses streamline their accounting. It gives a clear overview – in real-time – of the company’s financial position and is updated automatically, so you can always be sure you have the most up-to-date view of your accounts.

An example would be Xero. This highly accessible software enables the business owner and their accountant to access their accounts no matter where they are – no more dragging boxes of files around or confusion over bills and dates. Everything is held on one platform.

To access the system, you would login online instead of onto an application on your computer. There are also apps for tablets and smartphones to keep track of invoices and expenses on the go. The costing is straightforward too, either a monthly or annual subscription.

It’s natural to be worried about your business data being stored online, but the Cloud is extremely secure and reliable. No one can have access to your account unless they have the password and login information. And, if ever something happened to destroy your equipment or premises, such as a fire, your accounts are safe as they stored online. If you have access to a computer or smartphone, you will be able to login and access your data.

The clear benefit of working in the Cloud is the flexibility of running your business from wherever you are, at any time that suits you. So, what are you waiting for…?
