Accounting Software

Over 95% of our clients maintain their financial records using some form of accounting software. A high proportion still employ the standard Microsoft suite of software in managing their day-to-day business needs.

As extensive users of accounting software ourselves, we have an in-depth knowledge of the software options available. We offer support to many of our clients in the selection and installation of accounting software, and can provide training and ongoing support.

Our aim is to work with you, reviewing your existing system, assessing your future requirements and identifying components that are working for you as well as those that need improvement or changing.

We know the benefits and downfalls of each software package and the add-ons and costs associated with them so let us do the hard part and inform you of the best options out there.

If you need a new system, we will ensure that it is effectively implemented and that all staff using the software have been trained, as well as linking the software to other business processes – making your life as a business owner easier. After your new system has been implemented, our team will be on hand to answer any queries you may have about your new software and to provide further training, if necessary.

Whether you have a piece of existing software or are looking to acquire some new software, we can assist you every step of the way. From the initial discussions, through the installation and set-up to ongoing training on the software itself, we will be there to guide you as much or as little as required.

To discuss your accounting software requirements, contact one of the team today.

Cloud Accounting

As technology advances and regulations change, more of our clients are switching to Cloud accounting software. This gives you and your business a number of benefits, particularly if you outsource your financial functions to us or another external provider.

The benefits include:

  • remote access to your accounts 24/7 from anywhere with an internet browser
  • accurate, on-time, comprehensive and detailed management accounts
  • efficiency gains and improved accuracy of data input
  • monthly fees with minimal capital outlay
  • easy scalability as the business grows
  • a fully managed service to free your team for other activities
  • automatic updates mean you can spend more time doing what you love, knowing your software is up to date
  • everything is run online, so there’s nothing to install and everything is backed up automatically. Updates are free and instantly available.
  • we can log on remotely to your live data to deal with whatever entries are required without you incurring down time

The beauty of Cloud accounting is the flexibility it gives you to run your business from work, home, or on the go. You can be confident that you have an up-to-date picture of how your business is doing, no matter where you are – or who is involved in supporting your business.

It is clear that online accounting will continue to grow, and we are geared up to assist our clients.  We regularly work with packages such as Xero, Sage and QuickBooks and can advise on the best solution for you.

To find out more about Cloud accounting, or to speak about the options available when upgrading your software, contact one of our team today.


  • Having used both EQ and EQ for many years we find their services invaluable. Laura and her team at EQ are highly proficient and extremely approachable. With their guidance and training we successfully and seamlessly transferred from Sage to Xero, allowing us more time to dedicate and concentrate on running our business. We highly recommend their services.
