Softworld helps relieve compliance burden

Accountants and IT decision-makers are set to attend the latest Softworld
Accounting and Finance event, in a bid to manage the increasing burden
of compliance upon businesses.

Sponsored by Accountancy Age, the show, to be held at the NEC Birmingham
between 12-13 October, will feature a host of IT tools designed to help
customers manage the increasingly compliance­heavy business climate.

ACCA is providing advice on the effects of international financial reporting
standards upon SMEs. The association’s masterclass, presented by Richard Martin,
will advise, and provoke debate, on the longer term changes to accounting
standards for smaller enterprises.

Accountancy Age editor Damian Wild will host a panel discussion on the pros
and cons of outsourcing the finance function, as SMEs are presented with more
options to use third-party services providers to ease the administrative burden
and cut costs.

Other masterclasses include how to implement accounting software effectively,
presented by BASDA chief executive Dennis Keeling, and how to save half a
million pounds a year using document management and imaging software, by
Johnston Publishing IT manager Michelle Jeffrey. Attendees include Access
Accounting, Albany, Coda, ICAEW and Version One.
