cloud accounting implementation

At bennettbrooks we use all mainstream cloud accounting packages as you might expect – QuickBooks Online, Sage, Sage 50cloud, Kashflow, FreeAgent and so on. The team here at bennettbrooks is fully versed in the different offerings but as regular users of the leading software packages, we are well-placed to determine the best software for our clients. We’ve been using Xero since 2014 and, in our opinion, it’s the best way for small and medium sized businesses to keep on top of their finances.

Why Xero?

Easy to use -  You can use Xero on an iOS or Android device to manage your accounts on the go, any device with an internet connection.

Easy to collaborate - with your accountant or bookkeeper.  Unlimited users can access the same data at the same time. No more running around with records or faxing missing bank statements.

Intuitive - you can quickly get up to speed and take control of your finances.  Ease of use, smart functionality, and a stunning interface are necessities for technology products in this cloud age, and Xero delivers in these areas.

Easy to integrate - The software can integrate with a whole ecosystem of add-ons. It’s scalable as your business grows, extremely cost effective and easy to use. Xero also has integration partnerships with hundreds of applications or add-ons regularly used by small businesses, such as Square, Expensify, AutoEntry, Chaser and Receipt Bank.

Cost effective - You will love that Xero is cost-effective - if you do the bookkeeping, a typical Xero subscription is less than £30 per month, and you can upgrade to multi-currency ability if needed.  If we already do your bookkeeping and you want us to transfer your accounts across to Xero, the subscription cost can be as little at £5 per month.

Compliant with HMRC’s plans for making tax digital – it’s quick and easy to manage VAT online with Xero, simply publish your return and file it with HMRC directly from the software.  You will be compliant when MTD for VAT is introduced from April 2019.  

Secure - Cloud accounting is very safe. Your information is backed-up in secure data centres and protected with multiple layers of security and data encryption.

New features in the cloud - Xero seemlessly rolls out new updates every few weeks with new major features every few months.

Guidance and Support – our expert team will guide your switch to Xero from bank feeds to opening balances, we will train and get you up to speed, and are always at hand to help out and point you in the right direction. 

As a leading Xero Platinum Partner in Cheshire, with over 50 Xero Certified Adviser accountants and a dedicated team of Xero Champions, you’ll get the very best support in implementation, migration, set-up, training and choosing the right add-ons.
