What is cloud accounting?

Put simply cloud accounting is like many other accounting software packages, but it is accessed via the internet.

Is it safe?

Many say its safer than traditional accounting software

The cloud-based applications use encrypted connections which means that before you send the information from your device it is encrypted and then sent to the remote server and again when it returns. But what does that mean? It means that because the data is encrypted it cannot be read or intercepted by a third party

No need to put data on flash drives

Back ups are often kept by the cloud accounting providers in more than one location should a network go down – meaning you still have access to your data

No trace of financial information is left on company laptops or computers

How will it benefit my business?

Flexibility – anywhere, anytime on any device with an internet connection via the web or an app

24/7 Real time data and visibility throughout the business increasing collaboration across departments and offices and with bookkeepers and accountants

Increases control of your financial processes

Potential monetary savings – eg less overheads; reduced IT costs, reduction in paper and storage costs

Frees up internal resources as you don’t have to install, back up or maintain the software yourself

No issues with different employees working on different software versions

Real time financial reporting

Sustainable and reduces paperwork, printing and postage costs

Speeds up payment processes

How does cloud accounting work?

The process for cloud accounting is very simple and is usually a 3 step process eg

Upload to cloud accounting platform
