Did you know that many businesses are still using legacy desktop accounting software for their bookkeeping?
Most often this is due to historical reasons since this was the last evolution in accounting software. However, for the past several years a better alternative has been available.
Cloud-based accounting means your books are stored securely online, aka ‘in the cloud’.
This means your data can be accessed (safely and securely) from anywhere, at any time, by you or your accountant as long as you have an internet connection.
There are several advantages to cloud-based accounting.
Some of the key advantages include:
1) Automated Backups
No more worrying about managing this locally or integrating other backup software. If something happens to your home computer, your files will remain intact.
2) Improved Access
Your bookkeepers, accountants, and you can conveniently access your business’ books at the same time. This makes it easy to fix items, answer questions, and input new data.
3) Automatic Software Updates
This means no more annoying manual updates. No more exchanging USB keys, or being unable to make new entries while you wait for your bookkeeper to bring the file back to your premises.
