Received an email yesterday to advise the "good news" that Iris have bought Hosted Accountants. It was timed after noon, so unfortunately not an April fool. Might be good for the HA shareholders, but bad news for their users I suspect.
That's now five different companies that I've dealt with that have been taken over by Iris. And so far that's four that I no longer deal with once Iris get their claws into them. Not sure what I've done to deserve this. And that doesn't include my trial with Iris software itself in the early days, where I requested and (eventually) got my money back.
