  • Client monies and DPB – where firms go wrong and why
  • Professional Conduct in Relation to Tax (PCRT)
  • How to managing risk and quality in a small practice
  • Preparing for an ICAEW/ACCA inspection visit

Cloud Finance Strategies for Small Business

Cloud Finance Strategies for Small Business.

If you work in a smaller business or are an advisor to local businesses in the North East then this is an event not to be missed.

We will explore how small businesses can approach cloud technology automation, out-sourcing and optimising for value-added work

Event information

We will discuss ideal states for small businesses finances to allow business owners and leaders to spend less time on finance work, but get more value add from their numbers.  We’ll show how the finance function should ideally evolve as the business grows, maximising time and resource investment. We’ll look at the ideal mix between outsourcing function to benefit from cloud based technology, machine learning and value-add apps/services, and when to bring more bespoke support in house.

Even though it’s a short discussion, participants should leave with some clear actions and ideas on new things to pilot to move towards a fully cloud based and automation finance function.

This event is aimed at small business finance managers, business owners and accounting firms serving small and medium sized businesses.


Oliver Deacon is a qualified ACC Executive Coach, a former Finance Director at Microsoft and a Fellow of the ICAEW. Beside his love of numbers, Oliver’s true career passion has been building great teams and coaching individuals to achieve their full potential.
