The Float partnership programme is designed for accountancy firms looking to expand their cloud software offerings and improve their advisory services, enabling them to roll out discounted Float licenses to clients. Float aims to provide accurate cash forecasting and helps businesses to make more informed data-driven business decisions via powerful scenario planning tools.
AAB said the expansion follows a “surge in demand from clients” and will enable it to better meet their needs post-MTD, when digital accounting becomes a legal requirement for the first time.
Hilary Dyson, head of cloud accounting at AAB, said: “The compliance element of accounting is shrinking fast and will continue to shrink over the next few years,” continued Dyson. “The role of financial advisors has shifted, and this change will be magnified even further after the introduction of MTD. Firms that don’t believe this and aren’t seriously looking at all the technology solutions on the market today are doing their clients a great disservice.
“At AAB, we believe that our value is in the experience and knowledge we have as accountants, not in how many hours of billable work we do. We must work much more closely with our clients as trusted advisors, using tools like Float to provide fresh insights in real time that can help them grow their business and prepare for the future.”
