Smart use of technology is helping a young accountancy firm to grow

Premier Tax appSmart technology on the move gives Premier Tax Solutions and their clients a cutting edge

Premier Tax Solutions, of Shelton, Stoke-on-Trent, have launched an app to help customers to easily manage their financial affairs while on the move.

It is the latest development for the go-ahead firm owned by chartered tax advisor Emily Precious and Vanessa Fuller.

“We are always looking to innovate and find new ways of helping our clients run their financial affairs smartly,” said Vanessa.

“The new app has been tailor made for Premier Tax solutions and is perfect for busy business people on the move.

“The app integrates with the popular Xero cloud accountancy software system and has a receipt management system, which allows users to take photos of their receipts through the app and to upload them to the Receipt Bank function or export to Premier Tax solutions.

“The app has a range of useful applications including a GPS system to track business mileage, tax calculators, financial news and the latest new from Premier Tax solutions.”

“We believe we are among the first companies in Staffordshire to provide customers with such a useful, free financial app,” added Vanessa. “We are a young, dynamic company and we think this is a great way of attracting new clients, particularly from tech-based companies.”

The Premier Tax Solutions app is free to download for Android and Apple phones. It has been devised by national app developers MyfirmsApp.

Premier Tax Solutions is also working with Staffordshire developers, Langley Foxall to develop an internal app to allow the four-strong team to view clients’ data, and offer, up-to-the minute advice where ever they can gain access to a smart phone. “The internal app is for use by our staff only,” explained Vanessa. “But it will have an impact on customers as it streamlines how we work.

“For example, we can be meeting a client in a coffee shop and by logging on to the app, we will be able to see the latest data on Xero accountancy software, send out invoices or set up direct debits. It is an extremely helpful business tool.”

Premier Tax Solutions was launched in October 2013 and has exceeded all growth targets.

“We had a 750 per cent growth in turnover between year one and two and then matched the whole of year two’s turnover in the first quarter of year three,” said Vanessa.
