KPMG signs deal with Digita

Big Four firm KPMG has signed a six-figure deal with Digita to supply their
personal tax software over the next five years.

KPMG are estimated to be paying more than £800,000 over five years to Digita,
part of Thomson Reuters, to provide personal tax software as HMRC moves to
mandatory online filing of returns.

Digita was narrowed down from a shortlist of three and secured the contract
last year, with the firm previously supplied by CCH for personal tax technology.

KPMG declined to comment as they have a policy of not commenting on third
party suppliers.

Digita also supplies software to Smith & Williamson as well as Baker
Tilly. KPMG began implementing the new software in April last year with the firm
waiting until it was embedded before making the announcement.

CCH recently signed a deal with Deloitte to supply their personal tax
software, but have not responded as to when that deal was struck.
