Why using Cloud accounting makes sense

Many of us work differently from how we did five years ago. The increased use of technology in our lives has accelerated the timeliness of the information we receive, and we can do this for your business accounts too by switching you to a Cloud accounting package.

Our team at Smailes Goldie Group has experience across a wide range of accounting solutions and are well-equipped to support your business whichever package you choose.

For us, Xero features great technology and, most importantly, is user-friendly. For this reason, we have chosen to become a Xero Partner.

Xero enables business owners to access their accounts in real time, at any time, from anywhere in the world.

As an accredited Xero Partner, the team at Smailes Goldie Group can provide expert advice and support on using this software solution for your business.

If you’re new to Cloud accounting we can set you up a free one month trial. There is no commitment beyond the first month, but from experience our clients rarely turn back.

If you are already established on Xero you can simply allow us access to your accounting data, so we can share the same set of accounts and access financial data at the same time from anywhere, enabling us to build a closer relationship with your business.

Xero is compatible with smartphones, tablets and other mobile technologies, as well as traditional computers.

Please call us for information on the different packages we offer so you can enjoy the following benefits:
