UK’s first introduction to Microsoft Small Business Accounts

Accountancy software developer Digita has announced the dates of its latest product briefing and training roadshows to be held nationwide next month.

The theme of this round of presentations is ‘interoperability’ - how the range of Digita award-winning accountancy and taxation products work together intelligently so that accountancy practitioners can work more efficiently and reduce the burden of compliance.

Practitioners attending the sessions will also be among the first to see the new Microsoft Small Business Accounts launched earlier this month.

Nigel Powell, Digita Business Development Manager said:

"Digita has been invited by Microsoft to develop features for the UK version of the new Microsoft small business book keeping product; many predict that it will corner a large part of the accountancy software market because most businesses are already using the Microsoft platform for their daily office administration."

"We believe that a vast majority of small businesses who already use book keeping software, and many thousands who currently don’t use any at all, will buy in to Microsoft Small Business Accounts and this will further empower their accountants where they are using compatible products."

"We expect this to be of considerable interest to practitioners whatever accountancy software they themselves are currently using."

"With Microsoft entering the UK market in this area, they will be redefining the standards for small business accounting and all practitioners should be well prepared for a major change when the product finishes its trial next year."

Digita’s Roadshows begin in Telford -on 4th Oct before moving on to Derby (5th Oct), Bristol (6th Oct ), Manchester (10th Oct), Gatwick (11th Oct), Watford (12th Oct), (Belfast (13th Oct), York (17th Oct) and Glasgow (20th Oct).
