Five ways the cloud can make accounting easier

Posted on: September 15th, 2016 by Judith Mallen No Comments

It’s clear that all small businesses need good cashflow to survive. But many don’t really understand or manage their cashflow. They also don’t have good visibility of their accounts.

If you are a small business owner there may be many reasons that you started your own company. You may have wanted to do something you’re passionate about, have control of your future or be your own boss, but whatever the reason, it’s likely that balancing the books wasn’t high on your list of things to do. Business accounts have a reputation for being complex and time consuming for anyone who isn’t an accountant.

Software that makes doing business a pleasure, can only be a good thing. Making money and seeing your business grow and develop should be fun. If the software is intuitive, it can actually be fun to use.

Xero have recently announced that they have made arrangements with Royal Bank of Scotland and NatWest to provide clients with online banking feeds directly in their Xero account. This direct bank feed was previously only available to customers of HSBC or via the add on, Yodlee for other banking customers.

The new direct bank feed for customers of RBS and NatWest will replace any feeds that have been put in place via Yodlee. Xero are happy to offer the choice to customers of RBS and Natwest of either swapping to direct feeds, or continuing with exiting Yodlee feeds.

If a customer of RBS or NatWest you will need to complete a form with the details of any accounts that you would like to receive feeds for. This form must be completed by an authorised signatory of these accounts and sent back to Xero at; 500 Avebury Boulevard, Milton Keynes, MK9 2BE

When your application is processed, you’ll begin receiving the new direct version of the feed instead of the Yodlee version.

Direct feeds from Royal Bank of Scotland and NatWest will cost £3.50 per month each – these will be added to your monthly subscription once your new direct feed begins. But any existing Yodlee feeds you have in place for business current accounts can be switched to direct. And they’ll cost you nothing until 1 August 2015.

If you have any questions please contact us at [email protected] and we would be happy to assist you.
