It is safe to say that ‘the pandemic is now endemic’ as coronavirus has not shown any sign of vanishing from the society and it is merely an exercise of continuing our lives along with it. Given that, we have to deal with dramatic changes to our way of life and the way we conduct business. Stay-at-home orders have scramble employers for finding ways to help their accounting staff to work remotely and as a consequence, use of cloud computing has become more important than ever.
