Cloud Computing and Accounting Software
Leonard & Company have a detailed knowledge of cloud computing and accounting software.
Cloud Computing is the latest buzz phrase from the IT world and you have probably read substantially about Cloud Computing through a multitude of media.. It conjures up images of an intangible, fluffy, unknown world far removed from the existing IT world of hardware, servers, cables and physical infrastructure. It covers anything that involves delivering computer services over the Internet and in layman terms it means that computer systems are now being delivered as utilities, just like telephones and electricity.
Businesses no longer need to buy and own IT infrastructure and software, they simply logon to the Internet and use it and pay for it as they use it, as opposed to acquiring it and running it themselves.
Hardware and Software will no longer have to sit on your Balance Sheet and be amortised over a number of years. Your Capital spend will now become an current expenditure written off within the financial year you incur the expense. There are a number of Cloud Accounting Packages in the market and Leonard and Company Accountants will be able to advise what option is best for your business.
