If your file's online, you can access it via any device with an internet browser, like your computer (PC or Mac), tablet – or a smartphone! See Access an AccountRight company file in a web browser.

Once you sign in to AccountRight, you can access all the company files that you have uploaded or created online, or that you've been invited to access.
