Name change announced to reflect a change in diversity of new

The growth of e-business and a widened membership base has persuaded international software standards body BASDA to drop the word ‘accounting’ from its brand name, writes Alex Miller.

Speaking after announcing the name change from the Business and Accounting Software Developers Association to the Business Application Software Developers Association last week, chief executive Dennis Keeling said: ‘We are making the change to reflect the increasing diversity of the companies that want to join BASDA.

‘In the past 12 months 70 new members have joined BASDA.

‘Whilst all of these are application software developers and suppliers, not all of the companies supply accounting software.’

The move follows an extensive survey of the association’s members last year.

Keeling added the role of the body would be to continue to focus on software standards in areas including VAT, EMU and payroll and that the association would continue to be the voice of accounting software.
