Azets, the largest regional accountancy firm in the UK, has turned to Xero as its best-fit accounting solution for small to medium-sized business clients.

With Xero’s accounting software, and the UK Top 10 firm’s advisory expertise, Azets will be able to deliver even greater support and information to its clients. 

Not only that, but it will pave the way for future government legislation, Making Tax Digital for Income Tax Self Assessment (MTD for ITSA), which will impact 4.2 million British taxpayers in the coming years. In addition, the partnership will help make the process of quarterly reporting more efficient for the firm in the future. 

Digital tools have provided vital support for small businesses over the past few years, at a time in which they have faced unprecedented challenges. With Xero, Azets will use the firm’s expertise in supporting businesses to deliver accurate and real-time financial insights to enable its clients to thrive now and in the years ahead.

Alex von Schirmeister, Managing Director UK & EMEA at Xero, said: “Accountants are the unsung heroes of small business prosperity and the value they provide is second to none. We’re thrilled to be teaming up with Azets at such a critical time for the industry.”

Russell Frayne, Head of Digital Accounting Solutions at Azets, said: “This partnership with Xero means we can accelerate how we help all our clients affected by HMRC’s MTD initiative in 2024 and 2026. It also means we will be able to build a suite of best in class technology solutions to help us deliver the real-time insight and the in-person advice our SME clients need and want.”

Fraser Campbell, UK Head of Accounting and Business Advisory Services at Azets, said: “Xero is a market leader in cloud accounting software for SMEs and fully aligns with Azets SME market focus. As with Azets, Xero aims to make life better every day for SMEs. 

“We share an ambition to help our clients to make better decisions, supported by our advisors using the best technology. We see that businesses who use integrated cloud software AND receive advice from an accountant are more successful.”
