The Challenges

Increased regulatory burden

The pace and depth of new legislation demands more from practices – including Brexit, MTD, FRS, AML and GDPR.


Staff demands for greater work/life balance and a lack of available talent require a different approach to delivering services.


The growth in client, practice and industry data, combined with ubiquitous access via mobile, cloud and on-premises software, create new opportunities to change your practice.

Running a practice

Competition and client expectations are driving the need for more value-added services, while creating pressure on fees and the quality of existing services.

What our customers say

Bells Accountants

Helen Atack, Practice and Client Manager

IRIS Accountancy

“We couldn’t do without it – it’s part of everyday life. I think a fair description to say it’s like an additional member of the team.”

Severn Trent Water

Robyn Clayton, Assistant Tax Manager

IRIS Accountancy

“iXBRL is a compliance requirement that has placed an increased administrative burden on corporate tax teams. The move to IRIS OpenResourcing for iXBRL tagging has proved a huge time saving for Severn Trent. In fact this year we are in a good position, with the accounts having been tagged months before the deadline, putting us firmly in control.”

Shepherd’s Chartered Tax Advisers & Accountants

James Shepherd, Partner

IRIS Accountancy

“With IRIS, we can prepopulate the information from HMRC at the touch of a button while we are speaking with the client. This convinced us that IRIS had tax completely sorted.”

Three Leaves Accountants Greenford

Imtiaz Khan, Partner

IRIS Accountancy

“The main magic in IRIS, is how the information travels from one place to another. As a practice management tool, it’s fantastic. For a small to medium-sized practice, you can’t find this sort of functionality in other software. I use a lot of other software but I think IRIS is the best.”
