I was interested to read in Kent Business that after 5 years of erratic trading almost every indicator suggests that the UK recovery is in full swing. This is reflected in two events which are happening in Kent this year – Kent2020startup and Kent2020marketing. The artcle highlights that startups are a vital part of the UK's economic recovery and that the UK now boasting record numbers of people running their own businesses. I am not how many startups think about accounting at this stage – but if they are they need to seriously look at the convenience and cost benefit og going down the cloud based accounting route.
According to data from Companies House, UK startups as at March 2014 registered was 54,336 – which represents a 5 year high. That's a lot of businesses who could benefit from a cloud based accounting accountancy service.
