A series of masterclasses to help small business owners get to grips with one of the most popular cloud accounting platforms is taking place across the region during the autumn – delivered by one of the top cloud accounting specialist teams in East Anglia.

With the government’s Making Tax Digital initiative now well-established, businesses have to provide information to HMRC in a prescribed way – which is most easily done via a cloud accounting platform.  But cloud accounting has many other business benefits, and the masterclasses will focus both on compliance and these benefits.

The series of three free Xero Masterclasses will take place in Norwich, Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft and Bury St Edmunds, and will be presented by the cloud accounting specialist team from chartered accountants Lovewell Blake – recognised as one of the leading experts, and a firm which is itself a Xero Platinum Champion Partner.

The first session will offer a general demonstration of what cloud accounting, and in particular Xero, can do to assist business owners; the second will tackle the common concerns about migration of existing accounting processes to the cloud; and the third will offer power tips to harness the full power of cloud accounting for businesses.

“Many business owners embarked on cloud accounting only because they realised they had to in order to comply with Making Tax Digital – and then they have discovered that it can transform the way they manage their businesses,” said Nathan Bowden, cloud accounting specialist at Lovewell Blake.

“Could accounting platforms – and I would contend that Xero is the best of them – give entrepreneurs up-to-date information at their fingertips which can transform the way they plan and monitor the progress of their businesses.  That information will be more accurate, more timely and more accessible than it would be with traditional record-keeping methods.”
