Software sector & startups

The software sector is an exciting place, with the last ten years seeing a foray of successful startups and interesting acquisitions. But that’s not to say it’s plain sailing. The software industry, like any other, has its nuances when it comes to regulation, schemes and tax affairs. As a modern and forward thinking business, we’re well-versed to helping out everyone in this sector, from eager entrepreneurs to established enterprises.

Our work in the software sector includes:

“Our team of experienced accountants understand the unique financial needs of the software sector and are equipped to provide customised accountancy services that streamline your financial processes and ensure compliance with industry regulations. Let us take care of the financial complexities, so you can focus on pushing the boundaries of technology and driving your business forward.”

Investing in Software as a Service (“SaaS”).


As organisations continue to become more and more remote and hybrid, it’s important that you understand how the relationship between your software and your customers may affect how you think about VAT. For instance, VAT Mini One Stop Shop (MOSS) is an optional scheme that allows you to account for VAT that is normally due in multiple EU countries, in just one EU country.

We can also help with what we call ‘the basics’, such as corporation tax, payroll, audits, and virtual FD functions.

It’s this knowledge, alongside invaluable time and cost savings, that can help you get ahead of the pack, solve your business challenges and protect your bottom line when it comes to your company’s finances.
