Cloud Bookkeeping Professionals

Most of our bookkeeping clients are already happily in the Cloud.

Whilst a very small percentage of business owners are still running old school desktop bookkeeping software systems, the move to cloud accounting solutions in 2020 signals there is no question that Cloud Bookkeeping is now becoming mainstream.

As XERO Certified Staff, Keep My Books Online have a strong team of Professional Online Bookkeepers, that have been trained and nurtured over time to work with our happy clients here in Sydney & Interstate.

If you are still on the fence and are investigating a cloud bookkeeping solution, here are some points to consider.

Whether you want XERO, MYOB or Quickbooks for your Cloud Bookkeeping Software for your business we have you covered.

What is Cloud Bookkeeping Software?

This software is hosted on remote servers offsite from your location. Your data is sent into “the cloud” where it is stored and maintained on behalf of your business.

The Benefits of Online Bookkeeping Platforms MYOB + XERO + Quickbooks Online

No matter where you are in the world, if you have internet access you can access your business information. Your data is easily accessible anywhere, anytime and on any device. There is one centralised data file with shared data access. This means that you, your bookkeeper or your accountant can all work on the file at the same time knowing the data is current. There is no need to email or drop off files.

Hardware needs at your office are reduced as you just need internet access. There is no need to install and maintain software licenses on individual desktop computers.

  • Employees can access the same data and the same version of software in branch offices or remote home offices.
  • Backups, virus checking and updates of the bookkeeping software are handled by the provider.
  • Real time information is used, with daily bank feeds.
  • You have clarity of your cashflow with transparency all year round to know exactly where you stand.
