Can we help you?

In recent years the emergence of cloud accounting software has enabled business owners to have a better understanding of their business finances on a real time basis. At French Duncan we have an in-depth working knowledge of several cloud accounting packages, including  Xero, Receipt Bank and FD Reporting, which are three of the main systems we use.

This experience enables us to support our clients by:

  • Introducing them to the benefits of cloud accounting
  • Assisting them with the set up and data transfer from existing bookkeeping systems
  • Tailoring reports to benefit the business owners in their understanding of the business
  • Providing support and training as required

We have highly trained staff across each of our five offices that can offer support where needed, designed around each client’s requirements.
