Showing business owner using Xero Cloud Accounting on their laptop
Online, real-time information on your business from your laptop, iphone, tablet and android devices.Malcolm Pope
Many of us work differently to how we did five years ago. Greater technology in our lives has increased the need for immediate information, and we bring this to our clients through Xero, a leading provider of online accounting.  Xero describes their products as “the world’s most beautiful accounting software”. The feedback from our clients is that it is much more intuitive than traditional accountancy software packages, enabling you to prepare your business accounts with a minimum of effort.

As the software is based online, you can access your financial information anywhere you can obtain an internet connection and there is no need to install software on a particular computer.  The cost is based on a monthly subscription and includes automatic upgrades and backups. Typically an established business will pay just £22 plus VAT per month for unlimited access to their online accounts.

It offers the ability to access real-time information on your business such as the business bank account and enables you to send invoices or see what’s outstanding from your iPhone / iPad and Android devices.

It also offers us the opportunity to see how your business is performing throughout the year which can maximise the chances of identifying any tax-saving opportunities and minimising the amount of cash which has to leave your business.
