I am just in the process of setting up an accounting practise. I am still looking at software options and it looks as though I will be opting for Tax calc. I am now considering whether to choose their cloud add on facility or whether to choose a totally independent host in order that I can access other information within the same cloud such as microsoft office applications. Can any one please advise. Do I even need a cloud. I think that last question will be yes as I wish to access informtion from other laptops/PC's and I will also have an additionalpartner very soon. I may also wish torun payroll within the cloud. Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
