BWMacfarlane are delighted that we are now Platinum Partners of leading cloud accountancy provider QuickBooks Online. The Senior Leadership Team at QuickBooks owners Intuit have been impressed by our vision and technology adoption, saying “We are extremely excited to be working with BWMacfarlane and look forward to delivering on the success measures in partnership, and promoting them as a cloud leader!”
As Platinum Partners of QuickBooks Online BWMacfarlane accountants are kept up to date with the latest software developments so that they in turn can help their clients get the most out of the platform. Cloud accountancy solutions are becoming increasingly relevant as the Government initiative ‘Making Tax Digital’ (MTD) intends that by 2020 the vast majority of businesses, self-employed people and landlords will be required to keep track of their tax affairs digitally and to update HMRC at least quarterly via their digital tax accounts.
MTD will be a massive change for all taxpayers, but particularly so for those who have always kept their records manually (or on computer spreadsheets), and give their records to their accountant once a year. According to the current plans everyone will be required to use accounting software of some sort, and keep records in real time. Cloud-based accounting systems such as QuickBooks Online offer this capability with the added advantage of allowing the accountant to ‘log in’ to review how things are going throughout the year.
For a few years now we BWMacfarlane been working with leading Cloud accountancy software providers and have been helping clients to move from desktop software to cloud based platforms such as QuickBooks Online which is relatively inexpensive and user friendly. We offer free demonstrations at our office or over the internet so please get in touch with BWMacfarlane Director of Client Services Vicki Harper if you would like to know more.
Our cloud bookkeeping and accounting services are tailored to clients’ individual needs. We can provide a complete finance function with bookkeeping and preparation of management accounts, complemented by our ‘Virtual FD’ services, or simply help clients’ staff as needed with advice, set-up and training.
If required we can provide a free IT audit service to assess software, hardware, and connectivity / security before you start a cloud project.
