What is cloud accounting software and how can it benefit my business?

Cloud Accounting software is essentially accounting software hosted online, rather than just on a company’s computer.  There are many benefits to using Cloud Accounting software – firstly, you can access your data anywhere and on any device that has internet access. You are also able to have real-time visibility of your finances and you’re able to automate certain repetitive tasks. 

In addition to enhanced accessibility, you can integrate the software with other business systems such as Shopify, and you’re less likely to lose important documents and receipts as these can all be uploaded at just a couple of clicks of a button. Plus, if you’re a business who works with an accountant (like us!) we can easily and quickly access your documents and accounting data, so you don’t have to send lots of documents over to us, saving you time, resources and money.
