“IRIS Elements Financial Performance Review has been monumental to be honest. It’s a way of translating between the jargon that accountants use versus what the clients understand. It’s been significant in delivering the figures in a better way and helping clients to understand it. Being able to use graphs and charts is a much easier way to show this information, I think clients really appreciate that. It’s not just, here’s a set of numbers and words on a piece of paper, we visualise it and explain. It’s much easier for them to understand their business and what’s gone on and I think as a result you get much more buy in from the client. “

Amelia Silas, Head of Operations, Nordens Chartered Accountants

IRIS Elements SmartTax

“I do like SmartTax – I can see the effect any changes to a tax return has on my client’s tax liability straight away as I update it. It’s only a small time-saver per return, but when you do lots of returns it makes a real difference “

Aly Rainey, Accountant & Director, Crack-A-Tax

IRIS Elements AML

“Elements is such an easy system to use the ID checks are quick and easy to use. Using both ID checks and risk assessments, you can make an informed decision on the client’s risk. Everything is self-explanatory and user friendly. The elements team are very friendly and quick at responding if I have any queries. “

Lucy Vann-Patrick, R Vann Limited

IRIS Elements SmartTax

“The biggest benefit for us at the moment is Elements Smartax. It’s a very slick, efficient piece of software and looks really professional in client meetings. Where previously we might have had to click through and wait for the software to load, now the information is all available in real time, which looks great. It’s also a huge time-saver for us back in the office. It’s a brilliant tool and we’d definitely recommend it. “

Nick Paddenburg, Paddenburg & Co

IRIS Elements SmartTax

“Ultimately, Elements is a fantastic time-saver for our Practice. When we need figures quickly, which we always do, Smartax is the tool that makes that possible. “

Gareth Jones MAAT, Bob Jones & Son Accountants
