Clouds are on top for a reason.
They float so high because they refuse to carry any burden.

Cloud Systems

It is 2021 and cloud systems are the obvious choice. You can read more about Cloud ERPs here.

As you consider cloud there are some new questions that arise.

Is it true cloud?

How do you account for it?

Long story short,  accounting of cloud systems under both ASPE and IFRS likely results in expensing.

Be sure to learn about the expensing and capitalizing of your next IT purchase and what that does to your EBITDA and metrics.

There are areas of judgement!

How you account for cloud and whether you have a real cloud or a ‘fake’ one are just two of the many questions you and your team might have. Selecting systems is never easy.​
