“Niall McGinnity, Nuvem9 CEO, created Nuvem9 in 2013 from a starting point of no clients. As an ex CFO and COO in technology companies, he had relied on desktop Sage software. Niall saw an opportunity to create a new type of accountancy and advisory service using Xero and other cloud accounting technologies. Nuvem9 was built as a completely virtual business; it has never had an office and delivers all services via cloud software. Now with customers and staff in 4 continents Nuvem9 is recognised by influencers and key software in this space as “a little bit different from your typical accountants”. This course has been written by Niall as a step by step guide on how to start and scale a successful online accountancy business”.

How to Launch an Online Accounting Business you can run from anywhere
Today you can start a cloud accounting business from a standing start. How do we know? Because we did this ourselves in 2013. We had no clients, no offices and have today grown the business to have staff and clients in 4 continents (but still no office as everything is delivered virtually). This course is a step by step guide to show you how to master cloud accounting tools, define and price your services and attract high value clients that love your service and preach about you to other companies


The course is much more than a technical guide on how to use Xero and other cloud accounting tools. This is a course for people who are determined to take control of their own destiny and master how to apply these tools in a thriving cloud accounting business. You will learn on a self paced basis via slide and video content, and via a mix of case study learning, practical assignments and building up your eventual business model. The course will therefore ensure that at the end you can confidently launch your business.
