Behind the scenes : UK practice update

Accounting industry analyst Dennis Howlett stopped by our new UK office yesterday to film a short panel debate with three online accounting advocates; Pearson Buchholz, Andrew Smith Bookkeeping and Prime Chartered Accountants.

Dennis was keen to get an update on the progress online practices were making in the UK since his last check-in. Dennis filmed the entire session which will he’ll publish himself in a few weeks, but we grabbed a few behind the scenes shots and threw together this short preview.
