A day of digital discovery, industry insight and new solutions awaits hundreds of accountants at IRIS World

By James Nadal | 5th October 2018 | 13 min read

Hundreds of accountants will be pouring into Twickenham next Tuesday for IRIS World 2018 to discover key insights on how they can thrive in the digital economy.

We’re really looking forward to welcoming everyone for what’s set to be a day to remember.

There’s going to be so much for attendees to take away from the conference, with HMRC to deliver the latest news on Making Tax Digital and the IRIS team revealing developments about new solutions.

The countdown to MTD day is going to feature very prominently, of course, throughout the day. We’ll be demonstrating all the ways that we’re already helping practices across the UK to be ready on time and the latest features in our products that ensure customers are fully compliant with the new rules.

At IRIS World we’ll be just six months away from the MTD implementation date, although the deadline looms even larger when you factor in the weekends, bank holidays and year-end work coming beforehand. Accountants could realistically be looking at as little as 70 days to prepare but IRIS World will contain a huge amount of content to get you ready.

MTD will no doubt form a key part of our panel discussion, which will feature leading figures from HMRC, Companies House, ACCA, and ICAEW. They will debate the hottest topics in our sector.

Sion Lewis, our CEO, will be setting out the IRIS strategy for the future, very much focused on ensuring customers can thrive in the digital economy. On that note, Chief Evangelist Steve Cox will be exploring what changes customers need to prepare for and detailing how IRIS is the bringing the future to you today, with solutions to fit the evolving needs of accountants.

We’re delighted that there’s going to be so much great content for delegates to consume and that everyone will earn 8 CPD hours in the process.

This year’s Twickenham event will be followed in the evening by the first ever IRIS Customer Awards. We’ve been receiving lots of great pictures from customers with their nominee certificates this week via social media. It’s going to be very exciting to reveal the winners on the night.
