“In 2018, smaller firms are increasingly agile in making accountancy work for their lifestyles, with technology tools available for them to work from anywhere, at any time."
With the digitisation of accounts well under way, firms are also having to look at ways to provide value to their clients beyond mere digitisation.
These include HR issues and also offering help with MTD from those that have themselves signed up to the HMRC pilot scheme. A brave move, especially given the complexities around MTD that await us all.
Equally smart, one of our shortlisted entries detailed that, having opened an overseas office, they were setting up a department to provide outsourcing services to other UK firms – an extra revenue stream.
Innovation and boldness leading expansion – perfect partners for today's smaller firm.
