Online accounting and software packages

With our many years of experience we are happy to advise you on the best accounting software packages to suit your needs.

For some small businesses the cost advantages of cloud computing can also bring benefits to your accounting services. We are proud to be a Platinum Partner of online accounting service Xero which can simplify many of your accounting, payroll and book-keeping processes.

Xero allows you to collaborate easily with your team at Scott-Moncrieff with immediate access to a single view of your current financial picture. The web-based accounting package allows you access at any time and from any location, freeing you up to get on with running your business in the knowledge that access to bank transactions, invoices reports and VAT are a few clicks away.

Our team at Scott-Moncrieff can offer a step-by-step process to assist you with the move to Xero by:

  • Explaining and showing you what Xero can do and how it works for MTD
  • Scheduling the best time to complete your conversion 
  • Setting up your business on Xero with importing your chart of accounts, data (including debtors, creditors and trial balance) and bank links
  • Providing a comprehensive programme of training, regular health checks and unlimited telephone and email support from our dedicated team.

Don’t just take our word for it…

“Our conversion to Xero was so straightforward and easy. We’ve never looked back. The Scott-Moncrieff team set everything up for us and their training meant we got going straight away.”

“Xero and its apps have given us a great end-to-end system from data input to reporting. They save us time and give us really valuable reporting at the click of a button”

“The real benefit to us has been the ability to access Xero remotely. I can check my information in real time from wherever I happen to be.”

“Xero has totally changed how we interact with the team at Scott-Moncrieff. Being able to discuss issues online together means we have the support we need when we need it.

From April 2019, HMRC is changing the way that information is provided to them. All VAT registered businesses will be affected. It’s vital that your business software is compatible and ready. Your bookkeeping needs to be on a compliant online package such as Xero. If it’s not, you need to move. We will do this for you and make sure you are ready.

As well as Xero, Scott-Moncrieff also works closely with a number of other cloud software providers such as Quickbooks and Sage, as well as many of the apps that integrate with them. These provide additional insights such as cash flow and forecasting tools, data analysis tools and debt management services. We recommend moving to a cloud accounting package – particularly Xero – in order to ensure that you can comply with all your obligations under MTD.
