The tax accreditation – awarded to Digita – is expected to be one of the ICAEW’s most popular schemes, with other software vendors already undergoing testing.

‘There are another couple of products we are looking to accredit, and this will create even more interest,’ according to Craig McLellan, of the ICAEW accredited IT product scheme.

‘We’ve had lots of enquiries from both accountants and software vendors about running a tax software accreditation.’

Digita MD Jerry Rihll admitted that getting Digita’s Taxability Pro accredited had been ‘demanding’.

‘It took a long time to get accredited. The level of scrutiny with this accreditation is more than with their others.’

Rihll claimed that some other software vendors won’t meet the tax software accreditation’s requirements. ‘There will be a couple that can make it and a few won’t have a chance.’

The IT accreditation scheme has grown over the past three years to include the likes of accounting software, accounts production and non-financial products among its accreditations. Product assessment is undertaken by Baker Tilly.
