The North East Cloud Accounting Summit, hosted by UHY Farrelly Dawe White Limited, will take place on the 26th of September in the Crowne Plaza, Dundalk, Co. Louth.

In Ireland, we are among the most innovative European countries, with 36% of enterprises using cloud computing – the 4th highest in Europe and well above the European average, while 10.7% of EU enterprises use advanced cloud services such as financial and accounting software applications*.

The North East Cloud Accounting Summit will showcase the global leaders in cloud accounting solutions. It will highlight the many benefits of cloud accounting, which include greater control of a business’s finances, the flexibility to work from anywhere at any time securely and access to real-time data to help you make the best decisions for your business – fast.
