My Digital Accounts appoints top entrepreneurs to its board

My Digital Accounts Board Grows

My Digital Accounts was founded by John Whelan who has operated as an accountant for three decades. On the 4th May 2017 we appointed a number of the region’s leading entrepreneurs to its board to help spearhead our ambitious expansion plans.

My Digital Accounts has more than 1000 users, and is the only accounting software package to provide accounting information in real time by using daily banking information to keep accounts updated.

Joining its board as non-executive chairman is recruitment guru Peter Searle who is chief executive of Manchester based global recruitment specialists, Air Swift.

Ravan Boddu, who has a wealth of experience in creating large scale software applications primarily for healthcare and retail industries, will have board responsibility for product development.

Dean Harte, who has spearheaded the growth of Redrock Consulting over the last decade to a £100m turnover business, will focus on business development.

Joining the trio on the board is Andrew Williamson, one of the founders of Altrincham-based Paystream, one of the largest accounting providers in the temporary labour market.

My Digital Accounts founder John Whelan said the company was set up to embrace the government’s Making Tax Digital (MTD) Initiative announced in December 2014. MTD will impact many tax payers directly from April 2018 when they will be obliged to file quarterly returns as well as annual accounts.

He said: “The primary aim of My Digital Accounts is to make the maintaining and producing of accounts simple and straight forward for accountants with customers who need their accounting information in real time. Our aim is to be the UK’s leader in accounting software for the temporary labour market and the appointments of such leading industry figures to our board, all of whom are well respected in their sectors, will enable the company to achieve its expansion plans.”

Peter Searle added: “I am very excited to be involved with My Digital Accounts. It is clear that the next phase in the development of the temporary labour market will be underpinned by leading edge technologies and My Digital Accounts, with its focus on tax compliance, will be at the forefront of helping the sector to meet the new challenges it faces.”
