AHEAD of the government’s major shake-up in filing of VAT and tax returns, Bishop Fleming has launched a new cloud accounting solution aimed at owner managed businesses.
The package incorporates Xero as its accounting engine and has a number of core elements such as tax and VAT compliance returns.
It allows businesses to grow their package components as they need to, while ensuring that they are ahead of the need to comply with the government’s stated aim of making all businesses submit quarterly digital returns starting in 2018.
Julian Cramp, Bishop Fleming’s marketing director, said: “Our cloud accounting solution is designed for those businesses owners who don’t just want to keep up with the competition but want to get ahead.
“The advantage of this bundled solution is that it combines elements that need to be done with bits that add real value. The benefits and flexibility to grow the solution make it a real ‘no brainer’ for businesses to adopt.”
