In mid-2018 Effective Accounting achieved a milestone. We became a fully digital firm, one of the first fully digital accountancy firms in the UK. We live in a tech-drive world and we believe that the best way we can support you is by making use of technology.
Effective Accounting is not just an accountancy firm. We are a fully digital accountancy firm and we pride ourselves on being progressive, adaptable and responsive to the country’s ever-changing economic climate.
As cloud accountants and Xero Gold Partners, we champion the software and love to work with businesses that either already uses Xero or want to benefit from this excellent software.
Xero, for us, is the ULTIMATE bookkeeping platform for anyone in business. This award-winning software will streamline your business, align with your current processes and integrate with over 600 add-ons.
Quite simply, we love Xero because it allows us to:
Save time on data entry, with automated bank feeds
Create, email and print fantastic professional invoices
Collaborate with us and give us a real-time view of your finances
The whole of our team has undergone full Xero training and are Certified Advisors and Gold Partners.
Alongside Xero, we are also Receipt Bank Partners. This incredible tool enables our clients to capture their receipts. Forget trying to reconcile your dog-eared receipts crammed in your desk drawer. Instead, Receipt Bank allows you to simply take a photo of the receipt via their app, it’s then automatically read and published to Xero. What could be simpler?
We are constantly looking for ways to improve our processes by using new tools and consider ourselves a very agile team. We work on reaching greater heights through collaboration. Nicola networks with the top 2% in the industry and is on the Advisory Board for the Digital Accountancy Show. She’s also a founding member of App Advisory Plus and an active member of the Rebel Accountants. She runs a Facebook group for women in accountancy called Forget the Numbers, alongside mentoring accountants on their digital transformation.
What are the benefits for you?
That’s enough about us. So, how does this help you?
We are in a tech-driven world and we believe that we can best support our clients by
making use of technology. Since the introduction by HMRC of “Making Tax Digital”, we’ve worked tirelessly to move all of our clients to digital accounting. Xero, for us, is the ULTIMATE bookkeeping platform for anyone in business.
Whether you’re a freelancer, contractor, start-up or small business, this award-winning software will streamline your bookkeeping, align with your current processes and integrate with over 600 add-ons.
The other benefits for you are:
Real-time information - at any point in the year you’ll know exactly what your financial position is. We can flag any potential issues and that puts you firmly in control.
Planning - understanding your current position means that you can plan more efficiently and accurately.
Security - Xero has inbuilt security keeping your data safe and protected. Being cloud-based also gives you the peace of mind that your information is backed up should the worst happen.
Access - you can access your records whenever, wherever you want to.
No end of year panic - you can track all of your expenditure, income and expenses as you go, so there’s no end of year scramble to find those pesky receipts or scraps of paper.
