Accounts In The Cloud – But Feet On The Ground

Monday 2 November 2015

How to keep business finance streamlined

From music to money, the answer seems to lie in the Cloud.  Three events during Fife Business Week are addressing how business accounting with cloud computing is the way ahead for speed, access and real-time information.

Steven Mackie of M&S Accountancy and Taxation said:

“We believe the future of bookkeeping is in the cloud. Benefits include automated banks feeds, online invoicing, mobile access and instant reporting.  Using real-time information is a fantastic tool.”


M&S Accountancy and Taxation, Xero certified advisers and silver partners at the forefront of Xero implementation in Fife, will host an event on 10th November at their office in Dunfermline. Xero’s senior account manager Diane Holden will join delegates to discuss the advantages that faster, real-time information can bring.  To reserve a place contact Cally Wilkinson on 01383 621118 or


Elaine Cromwell from Thomson Cooper Associates is a leading Scottish authority on accounting software and will also host a seminar on using Xero.  Voted “Training Manager of the Year” in 2013, Elaine will demonstrate the latest features of the software and show the advantages it brings to business.  She will also examine some of the additional add-on apps available to help with other tasks.
