Why would you be different from my existing accountant?
Traditionally, your typical accountant may be someone who you see once or twice a year to review accounts that relate to a period that has long since passed.
With the revolution in accounting software and methods of communication, accountants can offer so much more by acting as a continual support for your business. Cloud accounting software allows accountant and client to view the same real-time data creating an invaluable source of information to ensure you make the right decisions for your business.
