Software, Training and Support

Technology has transformed accounting over the last few years, and continues to impact the accounting industry immensely.  The days of excel spreadsheets and manual bookkeeping are numbered; everything is going digital, accessible on any device every minute of the day, or night.

Before long every business, high-net-worth individual and property developer/investor will have to submit quarterly tax returns alongside digital VAT returns and payments.

When businesses know exactly how their finances stand, they can make better decisions. Cloud accounting systems give back lots of time:

  • Sitting on the train or taking a 5-minute tea break – why not reconcile your accounts on your mobile phone?
  • Finished a job? Why not generate the invoice direct from the quote and send it to your client digitally, with a pay button on the invoice for your client to pay direct into your bank?
  • Never lose a receipt again. Scan a receipt on your mobile and then let your accounting system automatically post the receipt to the right expense account.
  • Link your bank information to your accounting system so transactions are ready to post to the correct account at the touch of a button.
  • No need to run a backing file or upload software upgrades because it’s cloud-based.
  • Access to your records, anytime, anywhere to get the answers you need.
  • Track business journeys with your mobile, and business mileage claims are done automatically.

Cloud accounting is changing how businesses handle their bookkeeping and accounting systems. The introduction of Making Tax Digital (MTD) means that businesses will have to embrace cloud accounting in order to file VAT and tax returns.

Our Business Support Team are all cloud accounting specialists. We work closely with expert providers; Xero, Sage, QuickBooks and KashFlow so our clients have the best solutions to suit their individual accounting needs. We will set you up and train you to use all of the functions with confidence. We can also provide a full or partial outsourced finance department service.

Your basic cloud accounting packages link to hundreds of time-saving Apps. Weroad test’ the Apps before recommending them to clients so we can explain how they work and how much you can save.

Since moving the computerised accounts from Sage 50 to Xero cloud accounting, I have continued to find Gavin and his team at Friend and Grant capable and supportive as I gain the knowledge on how to use Xero day to day.  Gavin 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.

His proactive approach enable 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.

We are into our third year working with Friend and Grant and found them very proactive by giving us pre-year-end tax planning. We have been using Sage accounting for a couple of years and we have received excellent training from Gavin and the rest of the Business Support team.

They have even recommended and implemented an add-on which allows us to deal with the VAT margin scheme. This automatically posts our transactions to Sage whereas before we were putting information into an Excel spreadsheet to calculate the VAT and then putting the same information onto Sage.

We have seen that this accounting system is a major time saver and we are looking at using some of the other functions that the software has. The support we have from Friend and Grant for the implementation and assistance with this system has been fantastic!

Who is this for?

Our 3 step risk-free guarantee puts your mind at rest and keeps us on our toes!
