In this special bonus edition of the No Accounting for Taste podcast, the AccountingWEB editorial team and a stellar line-up of accountants go beyond the QuickBooks Connect headlines and analyse the key themes from the event.
Unlike last year’s arctic blast, this year QuickBooks Connect attendees basked in the Capital’s unusually warm February weather. But did the international software giant enjoy an equally warm reception when it unveiled new Making Tax Digital for VAT features this year’s digital shindig?
As the beer cans cracked open to signify the end of another QuickBooks Connect, the AccountingWEB team gathered an all-star cast of accountants.
Joining AccountingWEB's Richard Hattersley and John Stokdyk to ruminate over the event are Emma Chesson, head of online at Kreston Reeves, Fiona Frasier from Frasier +, Peter Jarman, the managing partner of PJCO, and Will Farnell from Farnell Clark.
And there was plenty for the panel to discuss. Headlines up for discussion from the event were QuickBooks’ product announcements, culture and values, implementing change, and since we had the winner on our panel, the QuickBooks firm of the future competition.
AccountingWEB also caught up with QuickBooks’ UK country manager Chris Evans. As he walked off the accountant’s keynote stage, the pod team placed a microphone in front of him to find out more about some of the key announcements.
