IRIS now offering outsourcing services

Just been told its IRIS' 'best kept secret'

Didn't find your answer?

£30 for a tax return and £130 for a set of company accounts

Anyone ever used them? Is this the new age of working in practice? Get clients under your belt then outsource all the work and collect a margin... 

I can't imagine the quality is any good, especially at that price. The bloke wouldn't say where it gets shipped off to. God knows if they are knowingly/unknowingly using slave labour in a 3rd world country

The more I deal with IRIS the more I come to learn of their dubious business practices. Probably won't renew our contract

Bargain
When they offered to do out payroll they offered zero service and cost nearly double what we charge

Time to ask then to do the payroll again

Wow! Not quite sure what quality you'd get for that...

Someone who reads the bank statements is unlikely

If this is not a spammy joke (quite likely on Anon)
Then the same service that you get from the £5 company formation agent

The £30 must include the ID and AML KYC.

Still recon this a spammy competitor taking the pi55

I think that the way software companies are going with providing a fully integrated software with accounts and tax filing as they try to outdo each other. Sure these software companies will have their own in house accountants to move ahead of the competition, Once one starts the others will follow.

CT filing has been with Sage for years
Iris already has products (several) that file

Suspect it is not integrated
Exactly the opposite

We send you this enquiry form that looks like a Tax Return or Company Accounts, you fill in all the necessary information, we then transfer that information (electronically) into our software and use our software to submit the Tax Return or Accounts. Totally automated and big disclaimer to say that nothing has been checked. Money for old rope really.

Judging by my past experiences with IRIS, this sounds more like an easy and risk free way to increase the subscriber list so that the value of the Company increases by 10 times the value of the subscription and then sell the Company for squillions of pounds.

That is only my own cynical view so don't take it as fact.

IRIS have tried this before: in 2007 they offered similar facilities via "a team of 80 accountants based in Chennai".

I imagine the financial crisis soon afterwards torpedoed the idea back then.

OK, that's it. I'll pay clients £5 each to let me do their Returns.
