Customer Stories

Aly Rainey

“I have used IRIS for many years and have always found it incredibly easy to use which is why I’ve stayed loyal for so long. It’s therefore great to see IRIS now venturing properly into a more cloud-based system, of which IRIS Elements and SmartTax is the showcase. SmartTax allows me to see the current tax status of the client I’m working on in real time, and it’s making a really positive difference to the preparation of my client tax returns as I no longer have to keep running the tax computation! I look forward to seeing Elements and SmartTax becoming part of the everyday provision.”
