Save time & money with cloud accounting: QuickBooks in Sussex & the South East
What is cloud accounting?
Cloud accounting is similar to traditional accounting software installed on your computer however, it is not installed on your servers, but on a virtual network for which you pay a monthly fee. Data is sent to the cloud, it is processed securely and the user can access it at any time, and from any location. Business owners can also allow their accountants to access the information.
Using cloud accounting software such as QuickBooks frees businesses from having to install and maintain software on each individual computer. It also allows employees in other departments or remote workers to access vital information in real time.
Benefits of cloud accounting:
There are many benefits to the cloud accounting model:
- Reduced upfront fees are replaced by a monthly cost spread over the financial year, improving cash flow,
- Easy to get, real time reporting information
- Low fixed costs
- Always available
- Choice of packages to suit your usage
- Quick setup and intuitive learning process

‘We are flat out all of the time and with our business it’s very paperwork heavy. Everything comes in with an invoice which makes Caroline’s job harder than perhaps a service business. This is where Swindells have really come into their own as QuickBooks has allowed Caroline to develop new skills so that we can work much more quickly and have great support. They’re really easy to get hold of, any queries we just ring them up, no problem.’
