Not only that, it can save time and effort for your in-house team – or, when you outsource to a cloud accounting accountant it can pay dividends.

Frequently asked questions

A cloud accountant is an accountant who can keep your business books online, so you can access them from anywhere. All data is stored securely on a cloud server, and whenever you log in, you’ll see up-to-the-minute information.
Cloud accounting is quickly becoming essential. As the government rolls out the Making Tax Digital initiative, businesses and individuals will be required to use cloud accounting services in order to comply. It’s already necessary for filing VAT returns, and by 2024, will be compulsory for the self-employed and those with income from property.
Cloud accounting takes your financial information off a single, office-based computer and transfers it online, meaning that anyone with the login details can access it from anywhere. This creates transparency, and also means that filing tax returns and other paperwork is simpler.

As of April 2022, VAT-registered businesses are required to file their VAT returns digitally. Organisations must use MTD-compliant software to track their VAT income and payments, as well as to file their VAT returns.

Currently MTD is only mandatory for VAT returns. However, in April 2024, it becomes mandatory for Self Assessment returns too.
