the traditional way of doing accounts is changing thanks to technology and especially now in today’s world which is evolving and finding a “new norm”.
with cloud-based software and virtual technology the flexibility for working practices is increasing and the opportunities of how, where and when we work is changing.
this continual change also allows us to tailor a working plan with you.
a couple of examples of how we work with our clients are:
all correspondence and work are carried out using the remote technology options available. the working relationship is via email, cloud-based packages and virtual communication technology.
this option is great for clients who do not have premises or are not local.
it provides the most flexibility between both parties and results in being nearly 100% paperless.
this working option is a combination of the above use of technology, together with flexible working at a client’s premises for certain tasks or requirements as and when needed.
this option provides personal interaction for both parties and addresses the need to complete tasks which cannot be carried out remotely.
as a client your requirements are key and this is just a highlight of options available for working with you.
