Cloud Accounting Software FAQs

Cloud accounting software is a type of software that allows users to access and manage their accounting records and financial data online, rather than storing it on a local computer or server. The software is typically accessed through a web browser or mobile app, and the data is stored on a remote server and backed up regularly. At Connolly Accountants, we recommend Xero & Dext. We also work with various other could based softwares such as Sage, Quickbooks, fusemetrix etc
There are numerous benefits of using cloud accounting software, here are a few examples below;
  • Access to financial data from any device with an internet connection
  • Automatic updates and backups of financial data
  • Reduced risk of data loss due to hardware failure or data breaches
  • Ability to collaborate with team members and advisors in real-time
  • Reduced IT costs and maintenance
  • What features are typically included in cloud accounting software?
  • Common features of cloud accounting software include:
  • Invoice and billing tools
  • Expense tracking and management
  • Bank and credit card account integration
  • Financial reporting and analysis
  • Budgeting and forecasting
  • Sales tax tracking and compliance
Cloud accounting software differs from desktop accounting software in that it is accessed online and the data is stored on a remote server rather than on a local computer or server. This allows for greater flexibility and accessibility, as well as reduced IT costs and maintenance.
Cloud accounting software is generally considered to be secure, as the data is stored on a remote server and backed up regularly. In addition, reputable cloud accounting software providers typically have robust security measures in place to protect against data breaches and unauthorised access. However, it is important for users to protect their login credentials and to choose a reputable and trustworthy software provider.

Make your business work smarter & faster

As a practice we have invested heavily in IT, much of which is cloud based. The knowledge gained combined with great business understanding makes us well placed to advise clients on which office management & accounting systems to use.

Cloud accounting software is a worthwhile investment for any business. It will improve efficiencies, offer a better insight into finances and improve team collaboration through simultaneous multi-user access.

The cloud is a platform to make data and software accessible online anytime, anywhere, from any device. Your hard drive is no longer the central hub.
Data is sent into the cloud, where it is processed and returned to the user.

The cloud and accounting are a perfect match; online accounting keeps business owners connected to their accountants as well as their data! We can view our clients’ information during the year rather than waiting until they hand us the information subsequent to the year end. Similarly clients are able to view information at any time without waiting to receive reports from us at the end of the month. They therefore receive accurate financial information throughout the year.

Online accounting packages are priced per month per user therefore upfront business costs are minimal. Updates, maintenance, system administration costs and server failures are no longer an issue; they are managed by the cloud service provider. Integration with other systems should be seamless.

Online systems use large data centres to store data and incorporate the same levels of security as online banking. There is no longer a need to worry about backing up data.
