If you are a long term reader or client, you may remember our previous announcements that we had been awarded Xero Gold Partner status. Well, 2019 ended on a high for us as we received the memorable news that Smith Butler has now achieved Xero Platinum Partner Status!

We’ve been partnered with Xero for a number of years now, which has helped us become experts in the use of cloud-based software. This is particularly helpful as our industry moves towards #MakingTaxDigital becoming the norm and cloud-based software allows us (and our clients) instant access to a business’s financial figures. Crucially, this is in real-time, and live data stored in the cloud means that everyone involved can access the information they need anytime and anywhere.

Xero Platinum Partner Status is achieved not just through the number of clients that we helped transition from traditional accounting practices to cloud-based, but also on the complexity of the files that we deal with. So when you give us your business, you can rest assured that we are skilled in using up-to-date technology and dealing with complicated accounts.

For us as a business, submitting and issuing reports in real-time means that we are spending less time on traditional accountancy work and frees us up to offer a Business Advisory service to our clients.

If you’d like to find out more about how we can help your business as both Accountants and Business Advisors, we’d love to hear from you. You can get in touch via the Contact page on our website or alternatively drop us an email.
