Cloud accountancy software is revolutionising the way in which business owners deal with their day to day accounting; our team is working hard to train and guide our clients through the process.

Making Tax Digital (MTD) is HMRC’s plan to modernise the tax system that will mark a fundamental change in the way that businesses interact with HMRC. 

From 2019 interaction with HMRC will become increasingly digital, with businesses using Cloud accountancy software packages to record business activity. 

Spreadsheets will no longer be the norm, instead software will link directly to your business bank account so that transitions are automatically captured and included within your accounts on a daily basis.

No more receipts clogging up your desk drawers, you can now take a photograph of your petrol receipt and upload it direct to your accounting app; updating records in seconds.

No more preparing sale invoices to be sent in the post, instead you can create and send them directly to your clients from your phone, and sales figures will be updated instantly within the software.

Data is stored in the cloud and can be accessed by any computer / smartphone with internet access 24 hours a day – seven days a week.

We are ‘ahead of the game’ here at Ellis & Co and offering a service that we know no other accountants in the area offer.

Anna Rowson-Smith, Ellis & Co’s software specialist is helping our clients make the move to cloud accounting; providing three hours of FREE set up and training to all our clients.

Anna has recently added another certificate to her collection and become a QuickBooks Online Cerified ProAdvisor. 

Anna joins colleague Alison Howell and an elite group of ProAdvisors with the skills to better help clients with complex business needs.

“Huge congratulations to Anna on passing her QuickBooks Online Core certification exam,” said Robert Ellis, director of Ellis & Co Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers.

“We are delighted to have another certified ProAdvisor here at Elis & Co.”

The team will be continuing to host Making Tax Digital seminars throughout the year, dates and further details will be announced via our newsletter, website and social media channels.
