Here at Friend & Grant, we can provide you with expert cloud accounting, from the software itself to the initial training and ongoing support. As a business owner, it is essential that you have confidence in the safety and security of your business accounts and business software.

Accessing your information from anywhere and from any device is becoming more and more important to business owners. As is having access to accounts for various team members and having the ability to share information safely and work collaboratively. There is a never-ending list of benefits to making the switch from traditional bookkeeping to cloud accounting, whether it’s Xero Accounting, Quickbooks or Sage – we have the expertise to help.

So, What Is Cloud Accounting?

Cloud Accounting is essentially a replacement for your traditional accounting and bookkeeping software or processes. It will enable you to cut down on paperwork, save time with automated processes such as invoices, payment requests and sales/purchase data tracking.

As a cloud-based software, it can be accessed remotely from almost any device using an encrypted login. This gives you and your team the freedom to access it anywhere without being tied to a specific device. Your cloud accounting software can also be connected directly to your bank to save manual data entry, therefore eliminating human error.

What Are the Benefits of Cloud Accounting?

Over the years, we have worked with many clients that have made the switch from traditional to cloud accounting. Some of the benefits they have experienced include;

  • Being able to access your financial information at any time and from anywhere.
  • Collaborative working, reduced paperwork and secure file sharing.
  • Saving time with automatic invoicing and payment processing.
  • Sales/purchases connected directly from the bank to the books.
  • Notifications and reminders about invoices and payments.
  • Saving money on hardware and IT maintenance costs.
  • Ongoing support from Friend & Grant.

Since moving the computerised accounts from Sage 50 to Xero cloud accounting, I have continued to find Friend and Grant capable and supportive as I gain the knowledge on how to use Xero day to day.  Friend and Grant proved invaluable in my initial training, being careful to explain how Xero processed transactions and willing to check that I had set up the recurring invoicing correctly.

This proactive approach enables the direct bank feed to be operational, swiftly. The technical support and business advice and expertise from Friend and Grant made the decision to move to Xero simple and effective, improving the credit control process by 30%, within 6 weeks.

It’s my first year using Friend and Grant, and Darren has been brilliant. He’s been extremely patient with my many questions, making sure I do everything right, and has called and emailed on many occasions to make sure I’ve understood everything and that I’m happy. Setting me up on Xero accounting software is the best thing I’ve done for my business and I can already see how this is going to really help me and save loads of time in the future. Being able to do my accounts as I go should mean that I am ready to go straight away at the end of the tax year, without having to spend hours and hours going through everything – the time of the year I usually dread! The added bonus being that Darren can access my accounts any time and if I have any queries throughout the year we can sort them out rather than leaving everything to the end of the year. Darren’s personal service has been brilliant and is a weight off my mind when it comes to doing my taxes. I used to dread doing taxes and accounts and worry that I’d miss something important or input something incorrectly, but now I have a great source of help and advice at a reasonable price! Thanks, Darren and the team at Friend and Grant!
