ONLINE ACCOUNTING software firm Intuit QuickBooks has sealed a UK-wide strategic partnership with TaxAssist Accountants, with its near 60,000 client base set to be offered Intuit’s range of digital products.
TaxAssist’s 59,000 clients focus specifically on small businesses and self-employed individuals, while Intuit’s software is targeted for SME owners who need help in managing their finances.
Nick Williams, head of business development at Intuit UK commented: “It’s very exciting that TaxAssist Accountants has selected QuickBooks as the software of choice. By opening up QuickBooks to TaxAssist Accountants’ large network of accountants, we’re helping them save time and offer a superior service, which also lets their clients focus on doing what they do best – running their businesses.”
Sarah Robertson, group business development director at TaxAssist, said that it makes “perfect sense” that Intuit and her company partner up, adding that 100 of its practices have already been recommend QuickBooks prior to this agreement.
The independent accountant network currently sits at 24th in Accountancy Age‘s Top 50+50 supported by Wolters Kluwer, with a fee income of £29.7m across 249 offices and 187 partners. In December it confirmed its first foray into the Australian market, and now plans to set up operations in the United States.
