Xero is the world’s leading cloud accountancy platform, offering a host of cost and convenience benefits over traditional accounting software, as well as the opportunity to gain better control of your business.
And, as one of the only Xero platinum partners in the Midlands, we’re perfectly placed to help you make the switch in seamless fashion.
Our staff are ‘Xero Migration Certified’, meaning we are fully trained to bring clients on board who are currently using alternatives like Sage or Quickbooks.
And of course, if you’re not yet using any kind of accounting software, perhaps still relying on spreadsheet or a shoebox - we can get you started from scratch too.
When you run your accounts on spreadsheet or desktop software like Quickbooks, your data is stored on one computer. Probably the one in your office.
With Xero, your numbers are stored online, in the Cloud. So you can access and update your accounts at any time, from any device with a mobile connection - and there’s no risk of data loss from damage or theft.
Moreover, you can share your data with your accountant in real-time. No need to print things off, send them over or drop them round any more - your advisor can see everything you can see.
That means more informed advice than ever before, and puts you in firm control of your finances once and for all.
While some popular desktop programmes now offer Cloud connectivity, Xero remains well ahead of the field. And with HMRC’s Making Tax Digital set to change the way businesses record their transactions, Xero’s flexibility is once again showing its value.
As a SaaS (Software as a Service) platform, Xero’s behind-the-scenes changes to comply with MTD will simply be available to users upon logging in.
Meanwhile, most desktop Sage or Quickbooks users will be required to upgrade to the latest version of the software. This could cause compatibility issues, and therefore require further investment in your server hardware.
As Making Tax Digital evolves, more upgrades could be required later down the line, potentially incurring further costs just to keep pace.
In our humble opinion, making the move from Sage or Quickbooks to Xero is a bit of a no-brainer. Not least because we can get your data switched over to the new platform in just a matter of hours.
Using a third-party conversion tool, we’ll extract all your core accounting data for the last two years (more if you wish) from your Sage or Quickbooks backup file, upload it into your new Xero account, and do a full review to make sure you're set and ready to go.
Our Xero-certified staff will then provide all the training and support you need to help you hit the ground running - and we guarantee you’ll never look back.
