Why your accounting should be up in the Cloud
The Hub News Team | 6.9.18 | General
Chances are that all of us use the Cloud in some way as part of our day-to-day lives.
Whether it’s using an email service, storing data or backing up photographs, it’s pretty hard to avoid Cloud-based technology these days.
And if your business has not yet switched to Cloud Accounting, it’s something you really should be thinking about.
That’s why the Marches Growth Hub Telford has teamed up with accountancy firm Whittingham Riddell to stage a special free event on October 11 to give you all the facts you need to know to make the move.
The immediate benefits are obvious. By storing all your accountancy data on a remote server you remove the need to install complex computing infrastructure yourself.
It also means that every member of your accountancy team is able to access your system from anywhere at anytime – making processes such as handling expenses, taxes, reporting and invoicing much more efficient.
Whittingham Riddell experts Andrew Richardson and Sally Fisher will discuss all these benefits and much more at the two-hour session at our base on the Innovation Campus in Priorslee on October 11.
They’ll also discuss how making a move to the cloud will future proof your business in light of the Government’s changes to tax returns.
As part of these proposals – due to come into force next year – businesses will be required to keep digital records and send quarterly updates to HMRC.
Cloud packages submit data in a suitable format for MTD, so there is no better time to make the move.
Andrew and Sally’s sessions will include:
- How making tax digital will affect you
- Benefits of Cloud packages
- Live demonstrations of Xero and QuickBooks
- Available apps & add-ons to help you run your business
- Which package to choose?
- Q&A – ask the experts
