IRIS World, Twickenham 2018

Yvonne, Fiona, Chloe and Laura all visited the IRIS World event in London on Tuesday 9th October. Your Tax Shop have attended IRIS World for several years now and have loved it every time. They flew down to London early morning and arrived at the Twickenham Stadium ready for a full day of fun! On arrival they were greeted with refreshments and lovely goody bags filled with IRIS note pads, pens etc, which can now be used at Your Tax Shop office in Ashton under Lyne.

The day consisted of presentations, seminars and finding out about all the latest and upcoming changes to the accounting environment. They learnt a lot about MTD (Making Tax Digital), GDPR and how to use the IRIS software to its full potential. The girls also attended a presentation hosted by HMRC about their digital journey, MTD and why it’s vital to embrace technology and change within your business!

IRIS approached Yvonne and Fiona and asked them to take part in a video interview, as they were both shortlisted for awards that evening, as well as Your Tax Shop as a firm. Everyone was so excited for the awards ceremony that evening and spending the day with IRIS made them more excited for what was to come in the evening! Thanks IRIS for an amazing and informative day.

IRIS Customer Awards 2018

After an amazing day at IRIS World, the girls got glammed up for the awards ceremony and waited for the boys (Josh & Kieran) to arrive to celebrate with them. Your Tax Shop were shortlisted for four awards – IRIS Firm of the Year (Small practice), Client Excellence Firm of the Year, Practice Manager of the Year (Yvonne Cookson) and finally Accountant of the Year (Fiona Heyes). They all glammed up ready for the black-tie event and headed to the drinks reception. The evening was lovely, with a delicious three course meal and drinks on the table ready for the celebrations. The venue looked spectacular, it was a show stopping event.

Your Tax Shop couldn’t believe it when they won the very first award that was announced, ‘Client Excellence Firm of the Year’. They were all so overwhelmed, happy and in shock, Yvonne and Fiona went up to collect the award and everyone couldn’t be prouder! Later, in the night Your Tax Shop then won ‘IRIS Small Firm of the Year,’ all the staff went on to the stage to collect the award and have photos taken. Celebrations were in order and everyone at Your Tax Shop based in Ashton were over the moon to have won two awards! This is a fantastic achievement for Your Tax Shop and they cannot wait for next year’s IRIS Customer Awards already!
