IRIS Software Group, the market leader in accountancy software and payroll solutions has acquired BHIS Ltd, a provider of company secretarial software for the accountancy and legal sectors. Its flagship product, PC Share Register Plus which enables statutory company forms to be filed electronically with Companies House, will be incorporated into the IRIS portfolio.

Effective immediately, BHIS’ existing staff become part of the IRIS team. The acquisition broadens the IRIS product set, further expanding its capabilities in the provision of software for company secretarial services and enables IRIS to strengthen its market leadership position in the accountancy software sector, where 15,500 accountants already rely on its software solutions to run their businesses every day.

Moore Stephens, East Midlands has used PC Share Register Plus for over 15 years. Barbara Sandbach, Company Secretarial Manager, comments:

“We think this is the best statutory records program on the market. It is very responsive, user-friendly and intuitive, and we find no problems in keeping track of all of the many and varied limited companies for our practice. In particular the direct e-filing module is to be recommended as quick and extremely simple to use.”

Phill Robinson, CEO of IRIS Software Group, says:

“We have had a long standing partnership with BHIS, reselling their market leading company secretarial products alongside our PTP solutions for smaller practices. It was a natural extension of that partnership for the two companies to come together. BHIS has a total of 650 customers and we are totally committed to ensuring continuity for all existing customers and continuing to maintain the legislative compliance of their products in the future. Many BHIS customers are also IRIS customers, who now benefit from being able to deal with a single supplier for all their technology needs.
