AccountsIQ are proud to be associated with the new BDO business accounting service called InTouch.
The BDO package is designed to support clients with “current business performance information which can be accessed anytime and anywhere”.
The service is being offered by BDO’s business services and accounting practice, which will use the online tools to support clients with proactive, business advice. The service makes the core accounts data available on any desktop or mobile device, and BDO said it will customise applications to meet specific client needs.
InTouch is positioned as part of an adaptable package of accounting and compliance services. Client companies could do some of the work themselves and rely on BDO for tax and company secretarial services, or sign up for a fully outsourced finance function.
The service is still very new, but follows the example set by hundreds of small and medium sized firms in the UK and latterly Big Four players including KPMG and PwC.
BDO in the UK are following the example of their Netherlands subsidiary who have been providing a similar kind of service for a number of years. The key approach is to recognise that different clients have different accounting and service needs and one technology does not fit all. The aim therefore has been to provide a suite of products that are cloud based and that clients actually want.
