Security Features

Accounts Anywhere offers a high level of data protection. Your data resides on a secure dedicated server accessed via a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encrypted connection. All data is preserved for three years after the year to which it applies and can then be archived if required.

The service is continually monitored for attempted misuse. Any unauthorised attempts to gain access are logged and investigated.

Multi-level keys and passwords ensure that every operation is only carried out by someone who has a right to do so, and each user's data is 'hermetically sealed' to prevent accidental or unauthorised access.

We look after your data as if it were our own!

Feel free to get in touch if you would like any further information about our security arrangements.


We adopt a 'belt-and-braces' approach to backups, taking an hourly snapshot of the data and a full backup once every 24 hours, and keeping a historical record off-site. Additionally an off-site incremental backup to a different location is taken once every 24 hours.

Status Audits

A system-wide software check of the self-consistency of the data is carried out automatically once every 24 hours, and on a per-user basis every time a user logs off. Any apparent irregularities are notified to our maintenance department and investigated immediately.

Spam-Free Communications!

We even provide an 'instant email' service between you and your accountant, guaranteeing safe spam-free and virus-free communications where it matters most.

Safe Data Deposit

We also offer an electronic storage facility for archiving your sensitive data on our secure servers where it will be protected by our security features.

No Worries!

Many people have understandable concerns about keeping sensitive data on a computer they have no direct access to. However, the level of security-checking we provide, the frequent backups, and the inherent security of our servers, means that your data is almost certainly many times safer with us than it would be on your office computer!

As long as you make sure your password is secure you've no need to worry. And we'll even give you some advice on choosing a secure password.
