EQ, which has offices in Dundee, Forfar, Cupar and Glenrothes, has been awarded the status of Xero Gold Champion.

Xero is Britain’s leading online accountancy software, one of many used by EQ’s Amber accounting department. Its dedicated Virtual Finance Office (VFO) offers expertise and support to clients’ day-to-day financial controls, allowing them to focus on their key business objectives.

Scott Kennedy, Manager of Amber in Forfar said, “We are finding that business owners are having increasing demands placed on them, be that from the day-to-day business or regulatory pressures from the likes of HMRC. Using innovative systems, such as Xero, allows us to remove some of the burden. Using Xero, we can collaborate with our clients and help them with business decisions, improve their compliance with regulatory bodies and give them peace of mind that their records are maintained to a high standard.”

Achieving the status of Gold Champion emphasises EQ’s ongoing commitment to service innovation and internal staff development, with all team members maintaining their Xero accreditation.

Diane Holden, Xero Account Manager said, “We’re really pleased the team at EQ have progressed to Xero Gold Champion Status.  Through the combination of Xero’s software and EQ’s depth of knowledge, small businesses in Scotland can keep on top of their cashflow, whilst their accountants can simultaneously view the accounts at any time whilst ensuring that the business they support get the full use of their expertise.”
