Mint Accounting has achieved platinum partner status with the cloud accounting software provider Xero.
The Aberdeen-headquartered firm is the first in Scotland and one of only ten in the UK to reach the highest partner status achievable. To do this, they must have more than 500 clients on the Xero system.
Mint Accounting also picked up Xero Partner of the Year for Scotland award at the UK 2015 Xero Awards.
The firm has secured its platinum partner status as it announces its plans to expand into Dundee, after significant regeneration in the city has highlighted the opportunity for further growth.
Allison Walker, managing director for Mint Accounting, said: “We aim to remain at the forefront of the changing face of accountancy services in the UK and are extremely proud to become the first platinum partner with Xero in the north-east of Scotland.
“Xero technology offers our clients easy access to their financial information anytime and anywhere on a host of different devices and, in turn, it gives us greater collaboration with our clients in real time. This software has offered our clients so many benefits and once they make the move from paper records to the cloud they often question why they didn’t make the move sooner.
“While many of our competitors are only just realising the huge value of partnering with Xero, we are proud to have been innovators of online accounting for several years. Our knowledge and experience of the software is vast, allowing us to implement additional cloud systems for our clients including Xero’s add-ons to create a truly streamlined system that massively increases business efficiency.
“These days everyone wants to have the ability to access everything online from any mobile device. There’s no reason why accountancy should be any different which is why we have dedicated our time to enlisting cloud-based accounting technology that gives small businesses more control and increased visibility of important day-to-day financial activity. Not only does this allow us to deliver a higher advisory service, but also brings accountancy into the modern age.”
