Huddersfield Accountants become QuickBooks UK Platinum Partner

Huddersfield accountancy practice Sheards has been made a Platinum Partner of leading cloud accountancy provider QuickBooks UK.

The cloud provider advanced Sheards to Platinum Partner status following the firm’s commitment to training its team in the product and then quickly rolling it out to its client base.

David Kay, Sales Leader at QuickBooks UK commented:

“The proposal for Sheards to become a Platinum Partner was the shortest we’ve ever experienced and was accepted unanimously.”

Cloud accounting solutions are becoming increasingly prevalent following the announcement of the Government led “Making Tax Digital” initiative which will demand that businesses submit quarterly accounting information to HMRC via a cloud book-keeping package.

Kevin Winterburn, Director at Sheards, commented:

“We are delighted with this news. We have already seen a number of our current clients moving over to the QuickBooks system as well as new clients.”

“Even though the Making Tax Digital initiative was removed from the Finance Bill due to the announcement of the General Election in June, we anticipate that the legislation will just be delayed and will be revisited very soon.

“Businesses should not wait though until a cloud solution is forced upon them, they should act now to get such a system in place early – they will very quickly be pleased that they did.”
