The cloud is a platform that allows information and software to be available online, so that you can access it whenever you like, from any device that has an internet connection. Rather than creating and editing documents on your computer’s hard drive, the entire accounting experience is hosted online through Xero software. Click here to find out more about Xero.
The Benefits of Cloud Accounting
When using regular accounting software, your data needs to be transferred, so that others can look at it. This can mean sending files through email, which runs the risk of version control affecting your accounts, as many people could make minor changes and send the files back to you. Files are also often physically transferred using USB drives, which is more time consuming and means important documents and data can be prone to accidental loss or damage.
Cloud Accounting allows several people to view and use accounts at the same time, as well as automatically updating and backing up your information to keep it secure.
How Heavenly Can Help You
A regular accountant may be someone you see once or twice a year to review you accounts over a particular (usually quite large) period of time. As a certified cloud accountant advisor, we offer continual support for you and your business, reviewing data in real-time, so that you can always make the right decisions for your business.
Heavenly provides you with a professional online accountant who is always on call to manage, monitor, and guide your finances. With our packages you will also get an accountant who fully reviews your accounts and analyses your company’s performance on a half yearly, quarterly or monthly basis.
Leaving Your Current Accountant
Heavenly will take care of switching over your accounts so you can use our online accounting software at no additional cost – you can make the switch at any time of the year.
If you currently have an accountant, all you have to do is write a letter informing them of the change. We can provide a standard letter for you and will take care of the relevant handover information.
You can send us your records using your preferred online storage service (Dropbox, Google Drive, WeTransfer etc.), by email, or you can send copies of your records by post. There is no transfer fee for switching your business over to cloud accounting and Xero provide free training to as many staff as you like through online webinars and a comprehensive ‘help centre’. You can, of course, contact a Heavenly accountant through phone or email during your time with us.
