XERO & Cloud
Put simply, Online or Cloud accounting is a means of accessing and processing your accounting data over the internet, rather than installing and running it on your computer.
Your accounting data is securely stored in the Cloud, rather than on a hard drive, which gives you the benefit of access from anywhere, any time, using multiple devices including your desktop and mobile phone. Even better is there is no longer the need to take backup’s of your files, thanks to automatic data backup and storage at multiple secure offsite locations.
Choosing the right software
There are numerous software packages on the market, like Xero, which makes the decision-making process quite confusing. Here at Shakespeare Rae we can guide you through this process by assessing your needs and offering the ideal recommendation for you and your business.
Key considerations about software packages include your ability, the size of your business, payroll obligations, reporting functionality, debtor & creditor requirements, the need for inventory, invoicing, and the ability to work with existing software you have or future software requirements.
Certainly some of this new software is very intuitive and there are some remarkable efficiencies to be gained by making the switch, including freeing up your time. We believe the biggest advantage is the availability of up to date data which enables you and our team to make better informed decisions to suit your needs.
If Cloud Accounting interests you, please contact our office for a free introductory consultation and assessment where we can discuss your needs and queries.
How we can help your business?
At Shakespeare Rae we will not force you into any particular type of software. Our role is to arrive at the right decision for you by navigating the process and deciding which software is most appropriate for you. This will be done by sitting down together for a thorough assessment of your ability, needs, and future direction.

Scott and his team are an integral part of our business
We at Project Materials have been associated with Scott Rae since the start of our business back in 2009. Scott and his team are an integral part of our organisation and have helped us in all financial aspects of a growing business including international reporting to our head office in Germany.

It’s the best decision we ever made
We changed all of our tax matters, personal and business, to Scott Rae around two and a half years ago. Immediately after seeing Scott we had complete confidence in him! Since then I have had no worries about tax matters as Scott and his team are completely professional and cost effective. They are always available to answer any queries we may have and are diligent in making sure I complete any taxation office requirements on time.
I have no hesitation in referring Scott Rae and his team to family and friends. It’s the best decision we ever made moving our tax to their professional management.
