Ward Williams achieves Gold in cloud-based accounting

Ward Williams Chartered Accountants are delighted to achieve Gold Champion Partner status with Xero, the global leader in cloud-based accounting software.

As part of our strategic direction to offer a cloud based accounting solution, Ward Williams chose to partner with Xero to provide its cloud platform. With intuitive real-time, integrated software, more and more of the firm’s clients have been taking advantage of the flexibility and benefits that cloud accounting has to offer.

Andy Webb, director at Ward Williams Chartered Accountants said:

‘’Ahead of the government’s forthcoming Making Tax Digital (MTD) revolution,  we have been driving forward our cloud based accounting and bookkeeping service for  client’s requiring  flexible outsourced solutions.   We have invested in training so that many of our accountants and bookkeepers are Xero certified. This means they can provide proactive bookkeeping assistance and advice tailored to individual requirements.   

 Achieving Gold Partner status is an important milestone for us.  We hope this will lead onto to further opportunities to provide established bookkeeping solutions to assist in meeting  our clients  compliance deadlines and provide them with peace of mind that their records are maintained to the highest possible standards through use of the latest bookkeeping technology such as what Xero offers”.

Tom Strange, Xero Account Manager added:

"It's great to see Ward Williams invest a huge amount of time and resource in to ensuring their staff are up to speed with Xero and the benefits of using cloud based accounting systems for their clients.  Being so focused and prepared will ensure a smooth transition for them and their clients in to the modern age of accounting as Making Tax Digital comes in to full effect from April next year.

Achieving Gold partner status is great recognition for the work they are doing"
