Meet our cloud accounting experts

We have worked with Liston Newton's Accountancy and Advisory Team for over a decade. During that time, our business has grown substantially both organically and through purchases. This wouldn’t have been possible without Liston Newton Advisory to assist with our business planning, providing proactive advice and ensuring our accounts were always compliant in a complex and volatile industry.

CEO, Reho Travel
Liston Newton's Accountants analysed our financial and business situation and helped us implement strategies to improve our position. Their strategies turned our business from making a loss, to recording a 6-month net profit of 36 per cent. And we are now on track to show a 240 per cent increase in turnover over the next financial year.

Liston Newton helped us move our accounting over to Xero. Their Accountant managed the set up and training so we felt comfortable with the software. We now have all our processes streamlined which gives us improved visibility of our business performance. This has allowed us to open 2 more stores without a significant increase in administration effort.

Frequently asked questions

What is cloud accounting?

Cloud accounting software accomplishes the same goals as older, desktop accounting software, but with many important benefits. Since cloud software is entirely online, you can access all your information anytime, anywhere in the world.

Modern cloud software also has much more powerful features than older desktop systems, including real time updates and the ability to collaborate with accountants and bookkeepers.

What software should I use?

There are many different providers of cloud accounting systems in the marketplace, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. It's important to get the decision right from the start, choosing the right software to suit your business will give you the best efficiency gains and assistance in running your business.

Seeking professional advice on cloud software can save you plenty of time and money in the future.

Is my data safe and secure?

In short, yes it is. Most cloud software platforms have an integration feature with the larger banks and other institutions, all of which demand that they have a similar if not better set of safeguards than their own systems. So if you trust online banking, you can trust cloud accounting.

What are the benefits of cloud accounting?

Cloud accounting has several advantages over the outdated desktop software systems which have been used for many years. Cloud accounting will save you time and give you much greater flexibility.

Firstly, being a cloud software means the programs are being updated regularly for new features, changes in tax rates, and more. Instead of having to download a new version on your computer, the updates occur in the background without interrupting your workflow.

Cloud systems also outperform older software by creating many efficiencies which allow you to spend less time organising your books and more time working on your business. Perhaps its greatest feature is that it gives you the ability to access your accounts from anywhere, at any time.

How do I convert to cloud accounting?

Converting to the cloud can be a tricky task, especially if you have been running your business on a non cloud-based software platform for many years. Seeking professional guidance with this will make the transition much smoother and save you many hours of stress.

A professional cloud accountant will be able to set you on the right path for your conversion and ensure all your data makes it across from your previous system.
