Project requirements

Case Study: From The Street To The Board Room At Accord Accountants TrouDigitalAn important shift in 2019 is taking place in the accounting industry, with the government pushing for every business to Make Tax Digital (MTD). This fundamental change has meant that tax administration must be done through digital software, shifting away from using Microsoft Excel or book keeping. Despite being a conservative industry, the governmental changes have meant that typically conservative accounting firms are moving to go digital. Recognising this, Accord Accountants chose to go digital, staying ahead of their market whilst still providing a personable service.
