Benefits of Cloud Accounting Software

We're experts in Xero Accounting Software. Xero Accounting makes use of Cloud Accounting technology. Here are some of the benefits of using Cloud Accounting Software.

Spend less time on managing projects and more time delivering value


Less Administration

Cloud Accounting removes the hassle of time-consuming software installation. It also removes the chore of creating backups and similar administrative tasks, because you're accessing the software over the internet. You don't need to buy or manage servers or other IT infrastructure to run the cloud accounting software. Overall this allows you to spend more time taking care of productive activities instead of having to handle ongoing site infrastructure issues.

Access to specialized services

Up-to-date Software

Because the cloud accounting software itself is maintained, it never goes out of date. The cloud provider automatically updates the accounting software to include changes to tax rates, and accounting rules, and even adds new features. You'll always have access to the latest version.



Reduce manual work by an order of magnitude. The cloud accounting software automatically imports bank and credit card transactions, produces recurring invoices, schedule reports, pay subscriptions, and posts transactions to the correct ledger. Cloud Accounting software can be effective for handling tax calculations for international sales for many different countries.

Document Management


With all the financial data stored online in a single database, team members can collaborate easily. This will prevent multiple copies of the same data. Employees can work anywhere together as long as they have internet access. This can foster teamwork and can enable a far more efficient work process.

Time Tracking

Ease of Compliance

Cloud accounting platforms help private and public companies with tax compliance by producing accurate financial statements, quarterly tax estimates and yearly tax returns. This aids in avoiding tax liability under-reporting. Under-reporting could like to audits or fines. Over-reporting could also be an issue by paying too much. By automating domestic and international tax calculations, cloud platforms also help ensure compliance with all applicable tax regimes. Some leading cloud accounting solutions automate revenue recognition to comply with acceptable accounting standards.


Data Security

It's understandable to have concerns regarding storing sensitive information on the cloud. The main benefit of cloud accounting software is how it has advanced encryption and access control, making sure that only authorized users can access your data.

Data you can trust

Direct feeds from banks, software applications and financial institutions mean that data is untouched by human hand as it enters Xero. The experts at Alpha Pro Partners also educate our trainees about the effective use of this data, and how to put it to best use.


Strong access controls

Xero’s wide range of security and detection measures enable tracking of who does what – and if issues are detected, alerts are raised. Only the authorized users and bookkeepers are allowed access to certain features of the system. The overall system can be secured as per requirements by the system administrator.

Comparisons for the Best Accounting Software for Small Business

Although we recommend Xero is advisable to always know how it compares to others to ensure you choose the right one for you.
We have not included SAP One or NetSuite as they are considerably more expensive than what we are comparing and they take longer than 6 months to implement.


We believe that it is the overall best accounting software for small businesses. It's perfect for accountants and non-accountants alike and agile enough to ensure you won't need to move to another software until you need a fully fledged ERP.

Zoho was very strong in marketing its product in the UAE and Saudi Arabia and although it has Zoho Books as its accounting module, their main strategy is to sell its other suite of products along with it. It is therefore good for micro businesses but as a business scales up, you would need to move to another software to keep up.

Sage traditionally was the dominant Accounting software in the previous decade but has not really caught up to Xero and Quickbooks. Many Accountants who are trained on it still enjoy using it but we believe that its weak API capabilities along with its rigid functionality makes it a legacy system.

Accounting Software FAQs

What are the benefits of using Accounting Software?


Business accounting involves complex and time-consuming work if done manually. Accounting Software on the other hand helps simplify this process, giving business owners the resources they need to focus on the administration and execution of projects.

How does accounting software help with data loss?


If you don't back up your data you can easily lose a vital document. Accounting software organises and stores data in ways which make your data files easy to find when you need them. Most accounting software includes cloud accounting systems which have ongoing backups to prevent data loss.

How does accounting software make data accessible?


A cloud accounting solution allows you to access your data from anywhere. The cloud accounting software does the heavy lifting, so you are able to use whatever internet-connecting device you wish to work on effectively.

Does Accounting Software simplify my taxes?


Businesses feel the time crunch when Tax time rolls around. Manually keeping track of all your transactions can be exhausting. Accounting software makes this process much smoother by combining everything needed in one place. Reports are prepared automatically and you can file returns directly from your accounting system, which means not having to use a third-party app to slow down your workflow.

Does Accounting Software help with automating tasks?


Manual data entry is much more open to human error. With automated accounting software, data entry is kept to a minimum. This is much more efficient and reduces the opportunity to make critical mistakes. A good accounting system requires you to enter information one time only and will extra data automatically when you need to create a transaction.

Does it integrate well with other business apps?


Data entry for businesses only grows more complex over time. Integrations allow you to work and access your data using two or more different applications from a single situation. Accounting software can be integrated with payment gateways online, CRM solutions, reporting applications, and information management systems, adding sales and business management functions to your accounting.
