Cloud Accounting

Cloud Accounting

Traditionally, most businesses either use Quickbooks Desktop or Simply Accounting as their bookkeeping solution. As the standard office model is disappearing, the limitations of desktop solutions become obvious, and in some cases, render collaboration impossible.

Here at Arcus Consulting, we believe cloud technology is the best solution for your accounting needs in a decentralized environment. You no longer need to keep track of access codes, product & activation keys or license numbers; cloud accounting platforms operate on a monthly subscription model, just like Netflix.

Having obtained certifications from the three leading cloud accounting platforms in Canada, we can migrate your existing books to the cloud today, for a more seamless and collaborative work experience tomorrow. If you are just starting your business, we will guide you in making the right choice for your business and accounting needs. You will also be saving up to 50% on the subscription fees when you retain our services.


The most versatile (but also complex) cloud accounting platform, Quickbooks Online is best suited for businesses that require a high degree of flexibility and customizability, with a complex chart of accounts.

Sage Business Cloud

Easier to navigate and more lightweight than Quickbooks Online, Sage's Business Cloud is perfect if you operate a relatively small business or sole proprietorship. This is also a great solution if you are new to bookkeeping.


Billed as the "Accounting Software Built for Owners", Freshbooks has the business owner in mind, and not the accountant. If you plan on handling most of your bookkeeping yourself, this is the right platform for you.
