    In relation to online accounting & bookkeeping it is best to use a number of different cloud software’s that tend to link well together.
    in relation to cloud data storage the common ones that work well are drop box, Google Drive, and Microsoft SharePoint,
    To collaborate with numerous team members off site drop box works well with Trello and slack, Microsoft SharePoint works well with Microsoft Teams.
    In relation to video conferencing Google Hangouts and zoom are the current go to software’s in the market.
    In relation to cloud bookkeeping software Xero, QuickBooks, freeagent and sage are all well know.
    Sage seems to be the cheapest now, yet Xero seems to be the most preferred
    Alongside the cloud bookkeeping software, it is very important to install and start using receipt invoice and data capture software. The three leaders in the market are hub doc which comes with Xero, Receipt bank and AutoEntry. These are a must as they save numerous amounts of time and automate the data entry process.
    In relation to tax Software’s Tax calc and Tax filer have a good reputation
