Hello everybody, I need to employ someone for maintaining my accounts books and for that I am thinking of outsourcing the work. It is better to do this rather than keep an accountant on the run whole day. But, I want them to work on my pc, as I do not want to upload/scan the account books to other people on their place. I need something like remotely accessing the work that I provide. Can you give me some advice on providers of this criteria?

The sort of access you require can be done, and people working remotely should not be seen as an issue.

You can get packages that can be accessed remotely from a financial viewpoint, that would enable you and others to access the date you need.

If it is as simple as listing and logging transactions then you may want to think about looking at a web based accountants packages that will be on google.

If you need document scanning you need to be careful, HMRC require you to keep records for 7 years.
