What is Cloud Accounting?

In a traditional accounting package, the program is installed on the computer in your office and can only be accessed from that computer, or perhaps connected PCs across a local network. With cloud accounting, there is no installation, instead you log onto the service using a username and password through your internet browser. This works in a similar way to how you would access online banking.
