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.
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.

We know exactly how you can use the cloud to improve your business.
Cloud accounting will become your best friend.
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.
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.
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.
Cloud accounting has several advantages over the outdated desktop software systems which have been used for many years.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.
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.
