What is Cloud Accounting?

An easy way to understand Cloud Accounting is to compare desktop accounting software with cloud-based accounting software.

Old-school CPAs work with their clients using desktop software. The client sends the desktop files to his or her CPA just to get the information reviewed and cleaned up. By the time the client gets the file back, the financials are already old – showing what happened last month instead of what’s going on now. With desktop software, numbers must be entered manually and only the desktop user has access to the inputted financial data on a timely basis.

SDA CPA offers cloud-based accounting services via QuickBooks Online (QBO). Here are some advantages of using QBO over desktop software:
