Awards anticipation for 1 Accounts Online
Haverhill based accountants 1 Accounts Online are eagerly anticipating the outcome of a national awards evening in London later this month when they will discover if they have won a highly prestigious industry award.
The company has been shortlisted for the Accountancy Start Up Award and the Online Accounting Award in the British Accountancy Awards 2014. 1 Accounts Online was established by Paul Donno in January this year and specialises in the provision of online accountancy services for small to medium sized enterprises across the eastern region.
The British Accountancy Awards take place on 25th November at The Brewery in central London. 500 guests from accountancy practices across the UK will come together to celebrate excellence in their profession.
Director of 1 Accounts Paul Donno comments, “These awards are held in high regard within the industry and we are so excited to have been shortlisted for not just one but two categories. We’re not under any illusions though, the competition is tough. We are up against six other companies in the Start Up category and seven for Online Accounting! We’re looking forward to what promises to be a fantastic night, at a great venue, rubbing shoulders with our peers and hopefully taking advantage of some interesting networking opportunities. The icing on the cake will be if we walk away with at least one trophy!”
It has been a busy and successful nine months for the 1 Accounts team. Earlier in the year they were awarded Online Provider of the Year from market leading accountancy and payroll software solutions supplier Sage. The accolade acknowledged their success in promoting the cloud based accounting package Sage One. This online solution is ideal for sole traders, start ups, small businesses and limited companies enabling them to manage their accounts online 24/7 where ever they are provided they have access to the internet.
Paul’s relationship with Sage was established over twenty years ago and he works very closely with their team. In October Paul was invited by Sage to take part in a Google Hangout, a video chat platform, to discuss the 1 Accounts website with Paul Lancaster and Steven Jones from Sage UK and Ireland. The purpose of the Hangout was to illustrate the importance of a professional and concise web presence for accountants. The 1 Accounts website, which was created using local Haverhill companies, was used as a benchmark to demonstrate the type of functionality and content that an accountancy practice should aspire to have on their website.
During the Hangout Paul Lancaster, from the Sage One UK and Ireland team comments, “In my view Paul is a perfect example of what we want accountants to be doing with Sage One.” The Google Hangout lasts for thirty minutes and can be viewed on the Sage UK Google + page.
