Wellwood Hoyle has been helping freelancers as one of the first online-accountants, starting over 15 years ago, when IR35 was first introduced.
Some people think that online accountants are a different breed of accountant. We don’t think we are. We don’t have two heads or green skin. The work we do, day in day out, is the same as any other accountant. The only differences are that we’re comfortable working with online accounting systems, such as Freeagent, and we’re comfortable communicating electronically rather than in person.
That doesn’t mean our clients can’t have a meeting with us or that we won’t work with desktop software – we do all that too! So our clients get the best of both worlds.
Online accounting has enormous benefits. Our clients can log in via a browser wherever they get an internet connection, no messing about with loading software onto your desktop or laptop PC. We can have real time collaboration, both our clients and ourselves looking at the same data at the same time to help problem-solve and discuss results to aid planning. Clients have no worries over backups as data is backed up automatically.
For freelancers and contractors, we tend to recommend Freeagent which is specially aimed at that market, but we also work with other popular packages such as Kashflow and Quickbooks and have clients using many others such as Brightpearl, Netsuite, Xero, Accounts Portal and Clearbooks.
