    How we can help


By introducing to and integrating you with cloud accounting software, we can spare you time-consuming accounting work and give you easier access to your essential information.  

Cloud accounting takes your bookkeeping, transactions and business bank data online, integrates it all seamlessly into powerful yet easy to use software and gives you easy access 24/7, whilst protecting your information with effective encrypted security. 

Through better visibility, you’ll get a clearer understanding of your finances and improved piece of mind through real-time checks on your income and expenditure, receiving timely information efficiently through bank feeds and automation.  

In the cloud, your data is backed up automatically and all of your automated users see the same up to date information, meaning easy and secure collaboration with colleagues and your expert AAB advisors. 


Are you: 

  • Newly-established and know nothing about accounts, but know you need something? 
  • An existing cloud accounting user who wants to use tech smarter? 
  • A business with established systems but want to know how you could do things differently? 

No matter where you are in your business journey, we’ll work with you to develop a cloud solution which will help drive efficiencies and give you clearer visibility across all areas of your business. 

We aim for the transition to cloud to be as easy as using the software itself. Our expert team will firstly provide a process review to map out the software implementation. We’ll then implement the system, transfer your data, provide training to your in-house team and always be on hand to offer post-implementation support and guidance.  


We’re not just here to help with the implementation. With extensive knowledge of both cloud and traditional systems, our team of qualified accountants can deliver a range of services to your business, whatever your needs may be.  

  • Full Virtual Finance Function service, becoming a part of or your complete finance team 
  • Tailored outsourced accounting support 
  • System design and implementation 
  • Advice about suitability of software, including review of existing systems
  • Ongoing training 
  • Management reporting and insights
  • Cash flow forecasting
  • VAT Returns
  • Business advice from your trusted AAB advisors  


By getting to know you and your business and using our cloud expertise, we’ll recommend the most appropriate solution for you. We’ll suggest not only the software package but also the compatible apps that we believe will save you time and enhance your productivity. 

As a Xero Platinum Partner and a Quickbooks Certified Advisor practice, we can arrange the cloud accounting subscription package that best fits your business. We’ll set up the software and help convert or migrate your existing accounting data. We will also deliver any required training, tailored to fit your needs, and be on hand to help you with any queries and ongoing support you might need. 


With over 750 apps in the Xero marketplace alone, many of which will also integrate with QuickBooksOnline, the chances are whatever your need, there’s an app for it. All the app providers we work with have a proven track record in delivering solutions. We will work with you to create the App Stack that is suitable for your finance and business needs. 

  • I instructed AAB to investigate a fraud which had occurred at a remote subsidiary of my institution. They acted promptly and with persistence in researching the financial background, providing me with excellent oral and written reports.

  • I cannot recommend AAB highly enough from my extensive experiences of their services which has included dissolving a partnership, becoming a sole trader and then subsequently incorporating the business, tax and general accountancy service and advice.
