The cloud accounting imperative for small businesses
With 2.3m Quickbooks users in the US and more than 1m Xero subscribers in the UK, cloud accounting is now firmly in the mainstream. Gone are the days of having a dedicated computer in the corner of the accounts office so that businesses could manage their books. Or of completing a spreadsheet and spending a whole day putting your receipts in date order before you delivered them to your accountant. Now, even small businesses can access the kind of accounting intelligence which used to need a whole department to create it.
