SESSION 5 14:00 – 14:45


RD Tax Solutions is a nationwide Research & Development report specialist that excels in securing retrospective and current year Research & Development tax relief on behalf of owners of limited companies. Thus far, RD Tax Solutions has helped companies from around the UK, and from all sectors, recover millions in unclaimed R&D tax credits and relief.

Changes Announced within Research & Development Legislation After the 2014 Autumn Statement announced an increase to the Research & Development (R&D) tax credit rate, R&D has become a topic that is cropping up more and more in the field of accountancy. The relief which has been set at a rate of 225 per cent since April 2012, has subsequently been lifted to 230 per cent for small and medium sized companies as of 1st April 2015. This means qualifying companies are gaining a greater benefit than ever before for costs they have incurred as a result of research and development activities. How this translates for claimants is that for every £100 spent on research and development, an additional £130 will be available from HMRC in the form of relief on corporation tax. Essentially this is the Government’s way of rewarding innovative businesses, to encourage future

growth which will thereby increase the country’s capacity for wealth creation. Changes have also been implemented which restrict some of the qualifying criteria for Research & Development tax credits, making the identification of qualifying expenditure even more of a specialist area. Employing an R&D tax relief specialist will enable a business to eliminate the risk of losing out on this valuable tax relief. Further to this, the longer a company waits before submitting a tax relief claim for R&D costs, the more money that company is set to lose. This is due to the fact that R&D tax claims are restricted; claims can only go back 2 open tax years – a fact that many companies undertaking research and development are unaware of. The changes to the Research & Development tax credit rate for small and medium sized companies (and also for large companies where relief has been raised to 11%) came into effect on 1st April 2015.

But how can financial organisations make the cloud work for them and what, in a highly regulated market, are the security, compliance and cultural considerations? This seminar will provide attendees with an overview of how a cloud-first strategy can transform the way people work.

The Move To The Cloud And How It Will Affect You

UK GAAP – A Year Of Change

Tom Davies BCSG

Your small business (SMB) customers are increasingly adopting cloud services to help improve their efficiency, and they are doing this a number of ways – by themselves or through a trusted provider. But what does that mean for you? One of the fastest growing cloud application categories is bookkeeping and so it is vital that you, as accountants, are up to speed and ready to come on-board otherwise you risk being left behind.

Amy Noblett Sage

2015 sees the biggest change in UK reporting for a generation, with the mandatory adoption of FRS 102 and expected changes to the small companies’ regime and the FRSSE. It will be essential that the accountancy profession understand the extent of these changes and the practical issues surrounding transition, in order to minimise costs and maximise on potential that these new standards offer.

ABOUT SAGE

We’ll also be partnering with independent industry bodies, such as ACCA, CIPP and The Pensions Regulator, who will be providing guidance on the compliance changes currently impacting accountants. Our guest speakers will talk about the latest technological trends that are set to change the future of accountancy.

AUTO ENROLMENT: A POT OF GOLD FOR PAYROLL BUREAUS

Accountants need to decide if they are ready to take on auto enrolment business. With many shying away from offering this as an extra service, bureaus need to determine what kind of information and support they will offer to help their payroll clients comply with these new AE duties. Payroll advisors will find that a large portion of these employers will contact them very close to or even after their staging date.

A POT OF GOLD Accountants will naturally increase their profits by providing this facility where they can orchestrate the necessary level of service in exchange for an initial set up fee, plus a monthly retainer to manage the auto enrolment duties. Additionally, if these accountants offer other services such as bookkeeping, tax returns, audits, management accounts, etc., they will have a new platform to reach and up sell to this new audience. You will find employers will be happier to consolidate all their outsourcing services to one person or advisor.

BrightPay provides everything you need to prepare your clients for auto enrolment. It will handle assessment, communications, and calculations for NEST, NOW: Pensions, The People’s Pension, Scottish Widows, and many more. • • • • • • • •

Staging and employee assessment Postponement feature Handles employee communications Ongoing monitoring and reporting Opt-outs and refund options Free email and phone support Fully compatible with RTI submissions and HRMC payments Integration with many pension providers (including tailored CSV preparation)

BrightPay is an auto enrolment solution that will empower bureaus to improve profit margins and increase the turnaround of these clients. The software has been designed to take all of the grunt work out of auto enrolment.

Good payroll software will further handle all employee AE communications based on each employee’s individual eligibility. For large, repetitive, or time sensitive tasks, the speed of automated auto enrolment offers

WORKSHOPS

With a combined payroll and auto enrolment solution in place, accountants will benefit from greater efficiency, increased value, and improved cost savings. BrightPay is an easy-to-use payroll solution that can provide everything you need to offer a profitable auto enrolment service to your clients. Through BrightPay’s bureau package you can benefit from unlimited employers, unlimited employees, and unlimited support.

Employee communication will play an important role and is often considered the most challenging part of the process. It should further be able to handle staging, employee assessment, postponement, ongoing mentoring, opt outs, and refunds. Integration with AE pension providers will be a key consideration to think about when weighing up the various payroll solutions out there.

SEMINAR SCHEDULE

EMPLOYERS UNPREPARED FOR AUTO ENROLMENT

In addition, clients will have an expectation that their payroll providers will present auto enrolment advice in a way that is easy to understand, relevant, and actionable. Accountants do have a short window of opportunity to position themselves as being open for AE business. The experience and expertise of an accountant can help employers understand what they need to be fully AE compliant.

The first step is to review your existing payroll systems to check if it is suitable for what is involved in preparing these clients for auto enrolment. There are a number of competitively priced payroll software with AE features included; however, be cautious as some solutions are charging extra for additional employees, employers, and customer support.

significant cost savings to bureaus. This will be especially relevant when these employees approach their accountants close to, at, or even after their staging date.

EXHIBITOR LISTINGS

For the majority of small and micro employers this will be their first experience in reviewing any kind of pension scheme for their employees. The fact also remains that many employers lack the capacity and ability to handle these additional payroll tasks. For many employers, implementing any new system can be a daunting, nerve-racking, and downright scary experience to grasp.

Developed by Lindenhouse Software, a leading developer of document management software and with specialist expertise gained from over 2,500 implementations, Virtual Cabinet boosts efficiency for sole practitioners to the UK Top 100s alike.

[ [

Virtual Cabinet takes the management of client’s sensitive documents one step further with the aid of an integrated document portal that simplifies

document authorisation. This innovation represents a major step forward in the accountancy sector served by Lindenhouse and enables the electronic and legally admissible sign-off of documents in the Cloud. Unlike other document management systems, Virtual Cabinet caters for an unlimited number of recipients and signatories on a single document and helpfully reports on who has or has not signed it. The process is fast and efficient and allows users to securely upload their documents to a hosted portal environment by a click of a button.

THIS INNOVATION REPRESENTS A MAJOR STEP FORWARD IN THE ACCOUNTANCY SECTOR SERVED BY LINDENHOUSE

Larking Gowen sees the Virtual Cabinet client portal as an important differentiator. ‘We can publish a tax return on a client’s personal portal, let them know it is there and request their digital signature and the system will tell us if the client has looked at it and how many times.

Migrating your business to the Cloud isn’t as daunting as you might think! Here at Hosted Desktop UK we regularly speak to prospective clients who are tempted by the cost and efficiency benefits that can be had by moving their IT into the Cloud but are, quite naturally, concerned about the likely need to retrain staff in the new method of working and the possible disruption this process might cause in terms of the physical movement of applications and data. At HDUK we are aware of the need to keep clients fully informed at all times during the migration process which in the main happens over the course of one week, with the main transfer of data normally taking place over a weekend to minimize any disruption. Working in the Cloud on a ‘hosted desktop’ is pretty much identical to working on a standard PC setup; it looks the

same and behaves in the same way so little is needed in the way of staff training. Your migration manager is available throughout your ‘go live’ day to make sure everything goes smoothly. Clients who have completed their migration often remark on how much easier the process was than they had expected. Over 400 accountancy practices have now made the move to our hosted platform; here is a typical comment from one of our clients following migration: “Our experience with Hosted Desktop UK has been excellent and their IT support team give us the best support we have ever had.” David Walker, director of Johnsons Accountants, NorthYorkshire. Thinking of moving? Come and talk to our team on Stand A660.

EXHIBITOR LISTINGS

‘If the client has a query, we can resolve it quickly and in practice we are finding that documents are reviewed more quickly and some have been returned to us within 45 minutes.

WORKSHOPS

Virtual Cabinet unites industry strength document management with a secure client portal. It will save you hundreds of hours of unproductive time spent looking for documents, whilst integrating with existing accountancy software running in the office.

INCREASE YOUR REVENUES; ASSIST YOUR CLIENT’S JOURNEY Is it a disaster when your valued client decides to sell his or her company? It need not be. By working together with BCMS, accountants and other professionals can keep the client, maximise revenue and share a better future together.

WORK WITH THE WORLD’S NUMBER ONE First established in 1989, BCMS set out to revolutionise Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) in the UK in 2000. Today, as an advisor to shareholders of privately owned businesses, BCMS completes more

deals by volume than any other company in the world, according to data submitted to Bureau van Dijk’s Zephyr database.

THE WORLD HAS CHANGED – BUT HAS M&A? When BCMS first began advising on M&A transactions, the company found both vendors and their advisors were totally focused on the financial planning aspects of selling a company – and not on getting it sold. Companies were typically under-sold, often for a price far below their true market value. At that time, only a few investment banks had defined fees, and almost nobody shared their charging structure with the client.

Come and hear Dr Mike Sweeting speak in the ‘How to’ Theatre on Thursday. Mike has worked with professionals in over 20 countries, helping them build their businesses through a more educated approach to their clients as they age, consider exit, and plan for the future. Most recently he has worked with professionals from Poland, Australia, Israel and Hong Kong – helping them to increase their revenues and launch new initiatives. Mike is a Fellow of both the Institute of Directors and of the Institute of Sales & Marketing Management. He has a PhD from Durham University and contributed chapters to IoD books: ‘Growing Businesses’ and ‘Mergers & Acquisitions’. He has sat on two EU sponsored committees on succession and exit planning for business.

ACCOUNTEX MAY 2015

BCMS quickly established itself as a company with clear differentiators: the only M&A firm to publish a tariff, to charge flat fees, to share KPIs transparently with the client, to dedicate specialist 8-strong teams on every project, and to give a small company exactly the same high level of service as a large one. The M&A landscape in 2015 has not changed as much as you might think. BCMS has grown, however. In 2000, the company employed 30 UK staff and none abroad. Now BCMS numbers 260+ staff in 25 offices across five continents.

500+ SUCCESSFUL DEALS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES BCMS’ track record is exceptional, across multiple sectors and across borders. BCMS’ website www.bcmscorporate.com showcases many of our deals – a figure that now exceeds 500 transactions in the last decade

alone, including trade sales, MBOs, MBIs and equity sales. The website also shows case studies, viewpoints, video interviews with past clients, and testimonials.

YOUR PRACTICE CAN BENEFIT NOT JUST YOUR CLIENTS Over 1,600 UK accountancy firms already recommend BCMS services to their clients. As a result of BCMS’ referral system, those who refer clients to BCMS can make more revenue from a successful sale negotiated by BCMS than if they attempted to handle the sale themselves.

THE FUTURE OF ACCOUNTING: WHAT HAPPENS NEXT Technology is driving a generational transformation in the profession. Where does the accounting service offering go from here? It’s an incredible time to be an accountant. We are awash with technology-induced opportunities to deliver more value to clients. Transactional processing work has historically been such a huge element of our workload. Now the likes of Receipt Bank are replacing that work with simply photographing a receipt or forwarding an electronic invoice.

The question is then where we take that front footed opportunity.

This Chasing 2.0 service offering is still very much evolving. We’re seeing some accountants deliver an actively managed offering to clients underpinned by CHASER as a platform to automate email chasing. Others are preferring to take an advisory role: assisting clients with the implementation of CHASER before delivering ongoing advice on top of CHASER as the chasing communication platform.

[

Cloud accounting systems, led by the likes of Xero, unlock the door to increased value delivery to clients. They provide the single ledger. The accounting role can truly be front footed as a result.

sales invoices paid can now be automated. All while having the personal touch that is essential in chasers being ascribed the necessary weight by customers.

ONE THING’S FOR SURE. IT’S SUCH AN EXCITING TIME TO BE AN ACCOUNTANT WITH AN INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY TO TRANSFORM THE VALUE CLIENTS RECEIVE.

[

One area we’re starting to see a move into is what we as accountants call credit control; what our clients recognise as invoice chasing. The polite persistence that pays in getting

‘For some years we have been looking for an appropriate software package for growing businesses. When you’re small and growing the last thing you want is the disruption and expense of changing your core software package. We’ve looked at lots of products and either the software wasn’t right or the terms weren’t right. Like many people we viewed SAP as being too big, too complex, and too expensive for growing businesses; but through a meeting with SAP when we were both sponsoring the same awards, we’ve managed to create an offering that we think’s a great fit. Software that is simple and cheap enough to be used by a single user but which can grow to support much more complex processes and

[

well over one hundred users, and all on a flexible calendar monthly contract.’

WHAT MAKES SAP BUSINESS ONE A GOOD CHOICE FOR A GROWING BUSINESS? ‘Smaller businesses want software that does the job, is easy to use and affordable. As they grow they may find that they need more capabilities – typical ones we come across repeatedly are lot traceability, more sophisticated with foreign currency, and support more flexibility in their business processes. SAP Business One allows you to start small and grow, and Online50 have very flexible commercial terms that put it within reach of small businesses.’

SAP BUSINESS ONE ALLOWS YOU TO START SMALL AND GROW, AND ONLINE50 HAVE VERY FLEXIBLE COMMERCIAL TERMS THAT PUT IT WITHIN REACH OF SMALL BUSINESSES.

[

‘Sage 50 is a great general purpose small business accounting system. If it provides what you need then it’s a good choice. We will continue to offer it and we expect demand to remain strong. Increasingly we are finding customers that need more than Sage 50 offers, but don’t want the cost and disruption that most of the bigger packages enforce. That’s who we expect our SAP Business One service to appeal to.’

IS THE CLOUD THE BEST SOLUTION FOR EVERYONE? ‘You should look at what you need and decide what’s best for you. Uniquely for a cloud provider we provide access to software that you can also run offline if you choose to, giving you complete flexibility. Typical drivers for implementing a cloud solution include needing access to software and data from more than one location; the flexibility to use Macs and iPads or other tablets in the business; improved disaster recovery and business

continuity; and collaboration with authorised external users.’

DO YOU NEED SUPER FAST BROADBAND TO MOVE TO THE CLOUD? ‘For offices in areas without super fast broadband, hosted software (like the Online50 service) is likely to provide a more efficient work experience. The capabilities of your Internet connection can affect cloud based services. For example web based applications need to download all the components of every webpage. Interactive services, like hosted telephony or a hosted desktop typically need much less bandwidth, but need a more responsive connection. ISPs promote and sell services based on the amount of data that can be carried by the connection (how fat it is) rather than how quickly data will cross the pipe (how short it is). Many services need short pipes, but users end up buying fatter and fatter pipes thinking that a fatter pipe is actually faster.’

ARE YOU PREPARED FOR TOMORROW’S PRACTICE? While the accounting profession is ever-evolving, we are on the precipice of the latest major shift, enabled by technology and a change in the way accountants view their role within clients’ businesses. With any change comes opportunity. The challenge for accountants is to embrace this growing trend and turn opportunity into reality. There is a strategic shift taking place within accounting practices globally. Businesses have become empowered by the rise of technology and robust reporting methods and, as a result, are beginning to expect more – and different – services from their accountants. This means that we will see a fundamental change in the accounting practice of the future – the way it looks and the services it delivers. According to recent research by Intuit, nearly two thirds (62%) of small business owners believe

that their accountants need to offer new services to reflect their growing role as financial consultants. This clearly means that, as an accountant, the relationship you have with your client is changing, and will continue to evolve as small businesses seek advice to gain competitive advantage. Insight from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) in association with Intuit also indicates the practice of tomorrow will be significantly different from today,

Rich Preece is Vice President and Country Manager of Intuit UK. In this role he is focused on helping small businesses and accounting professionals move to the cloud to manage their finances more simply and effectively with QuickBooks Online. Previously, he was Director of Intuit’s Partnership Solutions Group, where he helped expand the QuickBooks ecosystem, simplifying customers’ lives so they can run their entire business on one platform. Since joining Intuit in 2002, Rich has played a critical role in growing the business and bringing its products to market in different regions including the US, UK and India for both small businesses and accounting professionals.

with the biggest changes in the areas of technology, client demands, competition and regulation. These changes are placing strong pressure on practices and is creating demand for counsel they can trust. The insights indicates that 48% of business regard their accountant as their most trusted business adviser – only 6% thought the same of their bank and 3% of their lawyer. Based on these insights, it is clear that businesses want advisers who understand them, their business, ambitions, finance and opportunities to grow and succeed. There is a definite demand from time-starved executives for one stop advice shops. The work by the ICAEW echoes Intuit’s own findings as it indicates 71% of interviewed accountants expect their role to significantly evolve in the next five years. At the heart of this shift is cloud computing. Cloud technology is a phenomenon that is here to

stay and, if used correctly, will streamline your day-to-day tasks, freeing up more time to build those crucial client relationships and providing an opportunity to offer key commercial advice. Our research also showed that 95% of SMBs are willing to pay for business advice, but just over 30% of interviewed accountants see themselves as advisers. By offering a cloud based financial management system such as QuickBooks Online, the world’s no.1 accounting solution*, accounting professionals can act as the consultant their clients need, providing them with information that drives commercial decisions and assisting with immediate access to up-to-date data. We are on the precipice of this shift, but the opportunities are clear. Practices seeking success will use technology as the catalyst to change, in order to meet their clients’ needs. The most successful practices of the future will be those who can innovatively respond to these challenges today. *Based on the number of paying customers and accountants, December 2014
