Why you don’t need a Local Accountant

Google searches are dominated by people searching for local accountants with search terms such as London Accountants, Manchester Accountants etc being highly used terms.
While having a local accountant can be beneficial if you prefer face to face meetings it is by no means necessary and indeed many searches are now made for online accountants, internet accountants or web accountants.
Accountancy is changing. Gone are the days where you needed to find a local accountant. Why spend time in meetings when you can converse quickly, in your own comfort and time by telephone, email, skype or live chat? Meetings take time and cost money and you are normally charged for the accountant’s time.

Happy Anniversary to the Internet

29th October 1969 is the key date in the launch of the internet that has developed into the worldwide web we know today.
The internet is the connecting of devices around the world initially through the use of telephone lines. The initial test was to send the message LOGIN from one computer to another but the connection dropped out before the G was received. Anyone who experienced the early days of dial-up internet connections will know that feeling!
