What can an independent practice learn from the software selection process used by a 200-strong accountancy franchise?

We were recently asked to join two of the directors of the TaxAssist franchise on stage at Accountex. The brief was to share some of the lessons we both learnt during their recent software review, which resulted in TaxCalc being rolled out nationally for core compliance needs.

Whilst outlining the key criteria that turned out to be pivotal in the assessment for the network, it struck us that the very same principles equally apply to an independent practice considering their own needs, and are worth sharing.

HMRC 2016/17 calculation errors and Exclusions - Update

EVERYONE MAKES MISTAKES – EVEN HMRC!

But don’t worry. The fix is on its way.

You may already know that HMRC has made a number of changes to the Personal Savings and Dividend Tax Reform, which became effective from 6th April this year. You’ll also probably know by now that errors were made in the calculation of tax liabilities.

It’s meant that those affected are unable to electronically submit Tax Returns (if an error registers it’s called an Exclusion). Instead they have to file a paper Return, providing at the same time a ‘reasonable excuse’ form. This has proven highly inconvenient and is a potential problem that’s common to users of all brands of tax software.

But fear no more. At TaxCalc we’ve been working closely with HMRC to remedy the situation quickly.

CloudConnect: Katie Hewitt discovers the cloud without compromise

These days, practices expect their tax and accounting software to enable them to operate freely in the same way that many other cloud-based applications would allow. But for users of certain solutions, the experience of processing tax and accounts remotely has fallen far short of expectations. Losing data when internet connections fail; poor security and back-up; incompatibility between desktop and cloud software; issues with iXBRL tagging – these are just some of the issues raised and reported in the accounting press.
