Scotland-based accountancy practice moves to the cloud

WILLIAM DUNCAN has become the first Scottish accountancy firm to move its operations online.

The practice will move to an online (or cloud-based) model, which it claims will add value for clients by allowing easier collaboration.

William Duncan first began trading 100 years ago and has offices in Ayr, Cumnock, Glasgow, Hamilton and Tarbet. It will use cloud-based Twinfield and CCH software from Wolters Kluwer.

Robert Fergusson, managing partner at William Duncan, said: “We looked at a number of online accounting systems but Twinfield impressed us because of its scalability, security and its speed of operation.”
