Cloud Accounting

At Clive Owen LLP we assess which software is best for each and every business. Whether it's Xero, QuickBooks Online, Sage One or Sage 50 with Drive we can help you find the right Cloud Accounting Solution that suits your businesses needs not just ours.

There are many reasons why our clients choose to use a Cloud Accounting solution such as;

  • Reporting - Flexible reporting and departmentalisation of different aspects of your business are more easily achievable that many desktop alternatives.
  • Bank feeds - Receive information from your bank daily and keep your records up to date for an up to date accurate view of your business position and performance.
  • Making Tax Digital - Quarterly reports will be required to be submitted to HMRC, most likely by 2020 for all businesses that cannot obtain an exemption. Clive Owen LLP see Cloud Accounting as a potential solution to this new business requirement.
  • Multiple users across different sites - As the data is held externally, rather than on your system, it is accessible from multiple locations simultaneously at any hour.
  • Tablets and phones - Whether you are a smart phone or tablet user, most Cloud Accounting options work while you’re on the move over multiple devices.
  • Access rights - Different access rights can be set for different users, eg: salesmen, can raise invoices and receive payments without access to sensitive information.
  • Collect payments on the move - Invoices raised and card payments taken on the move are instantly reflected in your accounts.
  • Low monthly subscription costs - By having a monthly subscription you can ensure you are on the latest version of the software and do away with accounting software obsolescence.
  • Additional apps - There are hundreds of third party apps that integrate with cloud accounting systems ranging from E-commerce tools, manufacturing modules and time sheet collection through to Customer Relation Management (CRM) and Human Resources (HR).
  • Support and link in your accountant - Instant online access means we can be quickly to respond and assist you if you have a problem or want to discuss an issue.
  • High level security - The use of high level encryption technology means that your online accounts have levels of security similar to your online banking.
  • No reliance on hardware - No expensive server equipment is required and any hardware failure does not mean the loss of your data.

Why us? - Clive Owen LLP has been at the forefront of Cloud developments and we are able to offer substantial discounts on the retail price as well as supplementary services like bookkeeping, management accounting, payroll and pro-active advisory.

Lead by Ian Jarvis who has a background in IT before becoming a Chartered Accountant, we have been assessing and advising our clients as to whether or not they would benefit from such software and aiding in the implmentation and transition from desktop systems.
