Our Xero Bookkeeping services

At Cloud8, we understand that accounting and bookkeeping can be painful, but this need not be the case.

We offer customised bookkeeping solutions. We believe each client’s circumstances are different and we build solutions specifically for you, to suit your individual situation.

We are a boutique firm. We take the time to get to know each of our clients personally. We are passionate about understanding your business needs. We formulate an accounting solution based on your budget and requirements.

How do we do this?
Through the following steps:


Xero Setup

We meet with you initially to get a clear understanding of you and your business needs. We then design a customised Xero Cloud Accounting Execution Plan based around this which can include the following:

  • If you are a new business, we provide roadmap to set up a Xero system from scratch.
  • If you are an established business with an existing bookkeeping system, we provide a conversion service to convert your current system to Xero.
  • If you already using Xero, we review your existing set up to ensure it is correct and you are utilising all the benefits of the Xero Ecosystem.
