In recent years the emergence of cloud accounting software has enabled business owners to have a better, real-time overview of their finances while improving the collaboration with our team of accountants.
With the introduction of ‘Making Tax Digital’ from April 2019, cloud accounting is now at the forefront of modern day accounting.
At Cowan and Partners, we are taking a proactive approach to these developments. We have extensive knowledge of several of the larger cloud systems in use including Quickbooks, Xero and Freeagent. Our status as ‘Quickbooks Platinum Pro-advisors’ and ‘XERO Silver Champions’ gives us an edge in this area and ensures that our clients are using cloud systems to their full potential.
We are able to introduce our clients to the benefits of cloud accounting including which system suits their needs best. We can then set the system up and organise the transfer of data from any existing bookkeeping system. We can then provide any training and ongoing support as required. As Making Tax Digital rapidly approaches, this will ensure that our clients are compliant and getting the most out of their businesses.
The age of digitalisation is here, and Cowan and Partners are equipped and ready to assist with all areas of digital accounting. By moving our clients onto modern cloud accounting packages, this frees up time to allow us to work alongside our clients, advising them on their business with real time information, leading to more profitable and successful businesses who can look to us as not merely their accountants, but their business advisors.
