What is cloud accounting?

Cloud accounting is when you use web-based software to manage your accounting online. Put simply, it allows you to work securely whenever and wherever you want.

The cloud is a collective term used to describe any remote server, or computer, that stores your data when you use cloud-based software hosted on it. The software lets you access, interact with, and change your data online.

It gives you the freedom to run your business on the go. For more information, have a look at our visual guide to cloud computing, where we explore the types of services available to businesses, as well as their benefits and the issues involved.

Is cloud accounting software safe?

We understand that you might have concerns about storing sensitive business information in the cloud, but there’s no need.

You work hard at building your business and we work hard at keeping your data safe. In fact, our cloud software is one of the most secure places to manage your accounts. Here are some reasons why:

Physical security

The remote servers with your data on are hosted in an environment with the same security technology as a bank.

Remote systems are monitored day and night by IT security experts. So it’s a lot less likely that you will lose your data through theft or damage, than if it’s stored on your own computer or server.

Electronic security

Your data is protected by electronic security systems, like encrypted connections and Virtual Private Networks (VPN).

This makes it very difficult for hackers and viruses to get to your information, and allows you to update and share your data safely online. The software and server system are also updated regularly - something that takes time and money to do yourself.

Data backup

When you use our cloud software, your data is automatically backed up in real time.

This means that any changes you make to your data are instantly recorded and backed up. We also have solid backup processes to keep your data safe if a server fails or a software bug causes a crash.

Who is cloud accounting for?

Our software can be used by any type of business. Cloud accounting is especially popular among small businesses, as it offers an easy and affordable way to manage the company finances.

We have online accounting software to suit businesses in any sector, ranging in size from sole traders, to SMEs and organisations with up to around 200 employees.

Why use cloud accounting software?

Cloud accounting software makes it easy to manage your income and expenses securely in one place. You can update your data in real time from anywhere, and at a time that suits you.

Create and customise professional invoices, and keep your accounts accurate and up-to-date with seamless bank reconciliation. There’s no limit to the number of transactions you can make, and our software will automatically calculate and submit your VAT returns safely to HMRC.

Our software comes with either support as standard, or has an optional support package - so help is only ever a phone call away if you need a hand with anything.
