Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is Cloud Computing?

Cloud computing is not a new phenomenon. It has been around for many years and you are probably already using it. Hotmail, Gmail, Facebook and Flickr are all examples of cloud computing applications. The cloud is a metaphor for “the internet” so it is just internet based computing. Servers, storage and applications are all delivered to your organisations computers and devices through the internet.

2. Is Cloud Accounting Safe?

Your files will be saved online rather than on your hard drive. This is the safest place to store information as there is no risk of data being stolen, lost or destroyed.

3. Why should I move to a cloud based accounting service?

You as an organisation will demand precise organisation and unfailing security of your data. Cloud accounting will provide you with this solution. Do you write cheques, write letters or read a map? Probably not. You are more likely to use internet banking, send an email or turn on GPS. Cloud accounting is the solution for forward thinking businesses.

4. What are the specific security features of Xero?

Data is guarded by firewalls, physical security, passwords and backups. Xero also have SSL certificates so all data transferred is encrypted to the same level as internet banking. No one has access to your data unless you invite them. The Xero server is backed up continuously onto a second Rackspace server with offsite backups nightly, full backups weekly and transaction log backups every 10 minutes. You can also import your data into a CSV excel file for absolute piece of mind.

5. I currently use Sage 50, Quickbooks, Excel Spreadsheets. Is it easy to convert?

We take care of the conversion process for you and if you become a client of ours we complete the transition for you seamlessly and free of charge.

6. Can you help me go paperless?

We certainly can. Not everyone is ready for a full paperless office however if you wish you can still print your sales invoices and file your purchase invoices. We will make you aware of the options but the decision is entirely up to you. HMRC have authorised the use of digital images and confirm that original documents can be destroyed.

7. Can I try Xero out before I commit?

You sure can. We can set you up with a free trial account where you can play around with a demo company.
