IPA Books+ breakfast demo
IPA Books+ is the cloud accounting software solution available exclusively to IFA members in the UK.

The move to the cloud is a key focus for many members and their clients right now, with a need for many to find a ‘Making Tax Digital’ solution and to prepare for the next phase of business growth.

The latest issues concerning VAT as they affect small businesses and practitioners
VAT for many businesses and practitioners is captured under Making Tax Digital changes from April 2019. Ensuring as an accountant that one is up to date with all VAT matters is a hugely important continual professional development requirement. This talk will help you keep up to date. – Vaughn Chown, Gabelle Tax

Nine ways to attract new clients and grow your practice
Old ways, even ‘recent old ways’ of marketing, are no longer effective for financial service firms. Referral generation can feel clumsy, and outbound sales, cold calling and direct mail all work less well for most firms these days. This session will open eyes and improve new client acquisition as the top 9 ways to grow a Financial Service Firm are explored in a 45 minute content rich inspiring session. – David Oliver, Insight Marketing

IAB members are able to attend the conference at the same price as IFA members.
