Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about IRIS Resourcing

Learn more about our services, how we support clients, and those all-important details.

You have full control over whether your customers know you are using an outsourcing solution to fulfil some or all of their accounting or payroll service requirements.

We provide a confidential outsourcing service and never contact your client directly, unless you specifically tell us to do so.

IRIS Outsourcing uses a simple 4-step implementation process to minimise the time and energy it takes for you to start using our services.

  1. You will attend a scoping call with our team where we will go through your specific requirements
  2. You will receive access to our shared portal, from which you can access and fill-in your Job Checklist
  3. You provide us with access to your software (if you don’t currently use any software, we can offer you our software solution)
  4. Once we have confirmed your service requirements, we will start working on your outsourced tasks immediately.

We operate on a policy of transparency and collaboration. Before we begin working with you, we will ask you how long it takes you to complete the work you’re outsourcing and compare this with our typical timelines.

If we think that the work is going to take significantly longer that your estimated completion times, we will contact you and explain the reasons why and go through our typical timelines with you.

Only once you’re absolutely clear on timings and cost estimates and happy with our services will we proceed to the implementation stage.

You can still rely IRIS Outsourcing even if you don’t use any IRIS software.

IRIS Outsourcing is an agnostic provider of outsourcing services, which means we work with the majority of third-party software available in the UK.

IRIS Outsourcing is an ideal solution for accountancy firms and bookkeepers, of all sizes and specialisms.

While there’s no such thing as a typical IRIS Outsourcing client, here are some of the kinds of clients (and the challenges they’re facing) we can support:

  • A growing company that wants to scale up its accounting or financial capacity
  • An overworked practice owner or bookkeeper with a backlog of core functions and no capacity to hire new staff
  • A practice struggling to hire suitable employees to fulfil essential roles in the business
  • A firm that needs temporary help during a busy period, e.g. end-of-year reporting.

IRIS Outsourcing is and will continue to be fully MTD compliant, enabling your business to stay ahead when it comes to MTD – including any new or incoming legislation.

Data security and compliancy is one of our biggest priorities at IRIS Outsourcing. Our current security and compliancy measures include:

  • ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System
  • ISO 27001:2019 Information Security Management System
  • ISO 27701:2019 Privacy Information Management System
  • Adhering to UK standard GDPR policy
  • Paperless policy using secure cloud-based systems.
