With technology changes taking place so frequently, many contractor accountants are opting to move away from the traditional book-keeping and spreadsheet based model, and moving to a more modern Cloud-based method of accounting. Though having an entirely online accounting system may raise certain doubt, in particular related to data protection and keeping personal & client data secure. However, a number of cloud-based softwares such as Nomisma Solutions are designed in such a way that it keeps the client data protected for malware or phishing activities. With these technology changes, businesses in the UK don’t need to worry about looking for a contractor accountant in their vicinity, as using the Cloud means all of the data and other information is easily accessible from any location whether it be Birmingham, Edinburgh, Kent, London, Leeds, Manchester or any site across the UK.

This cloud innovative means that all accounting data can be accessed by the business as well as the accountant from any device in any part of the world (this depends on the data regulation laws). Using cloud-based accounting software will also aid the business in staying on top of all statutory requirements such as the upcoming legislation changes, tax filing deadlines etc.

Basic features of cloud-based accounting software

Easy and speedy bookkeeping is the demand of modern times. With loads of data in-flow and out-flow, it is important that a user can swiftly upload procurements and operating expense onto the system, and generate reports automatically. With a cloud-based accounting software there is no need for data back-up as it’s all stored on the cloud. Basic activities include: 

  • Invoicing – Businesses can create and modify the invoice (add logo’s and designs) to give it a more professional look and feel
  • Bank Feeds – Set up bank feeds will help the business as they just need to simply import figures without manually adding anything
  • Reports – Along with providing P&L, balance sheet and other financial reports, accounting software also offer a wide range of graphical reports. This enables the user to have a better picture of the business daily, weekly or quarterly (depending on the need of the business)
  • Data protection – Starting May 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will have an effect on every UK organisation that processes personal data of EU residents. It will be imperative for businesses to comply with GDPR
