What is better to use: cloud or desktop accounting software ?

Post by Alexander » Sat Jun 09, 2018 12:52 pm

There are a lot of different software options how to solve business bookkeeping needs . Nowadays, small businesses can use online cloud based accounting software or desktop ( on - premise ) accounting software.
What should I choose? What are the benefits and disadvantages of cloud -based software as compared to on-premise non-cloud accounting software?

The ‘cloud’ simply refers to software and services that you access using the internet with the data being stored on someone else’s computer rather than your own

Advantage

Convenience to access your files from anywhere
not having to install software on your own computer
Easy data sharing

Desktop accounting software is installed and runs on your computer where the data is also usually stored

Advantages

no fees to use the program
data stored on own PC
Internet not required
Remote bookkeping for QuickBooks
