What is Cloud Accounting and how does it work?
Cloud Accounting put simply means that your bookkeeping software is accessed online via website or app. This means that the data is automatically backed up and can be accessed from a variety of devices in any location with an internet connection. So rather than purchasing software to load onto your PC or laptop, you pay a monthly subscription for access to the software.
Functionality is much improved with automatic bank feeds commonplace and documentation scanned and archived electronically. You can issue electronic invoices with immediate online payment options which can help improve cashflow. Receipts can be scanned and posted automatically by the software which can save huge amounts of time data imputing.
If you're considering Cloud Accounting get in touch and one of our experts would be happy to guide you through the process.
What should I look for in a Financial Adviser?
It is important when looking for a Financial Adviser that you take your time to find someone who understands your needs and can work with you to design a bespoke solution to your specific requirements. Make sure that you have full market access as many firms will limit your investment prospects to their own funds. Your adviser should be experienced and registered with the FCA. At Lovewell Blake Financial Planning we have a team of highly experienced consultants who get to you you and your requirements and have access to the whole market of financial products.
