Why Cloud Accounting?

Cloud Accounting is the use of online software which enables business owners to view their financial data on a smart phone, tablet, laptop or computer from anywhere in the world where wi-fi is available. This unrestricted access to current and up to date financial information allows team members to communicate and collaborate with each other and their accountants in a timely and highly efficient manner.
