Best Tax Software BTCSoftwareAt a glittering reception at The Barbican in London last night, BTCSoftware won the award for Best Tax Software. This award was voted for by the AccountingWEB community and the BTCSoftware team is naturally delighted with the sheer volume of support it received – it was the most shortlisted software developer at the event.

Commenting on the company’s success CEO Rob Ellis said, “We are truly grateful to everyone who voted for us. As an independent software developer this is a great achievement and we are really pleased with the results.”


Central ethos and loyal customers

BTCSoftware began life in 1999 when it was founded by Rob Ellis and CFO, Ian Katté. Business Development Director, Paul Oldridge, joined the company in 2006 and since then it has grown to a sizeable team.

The company has a simple ethos – to deliver feature-rich and cost-effective practice grade accounting and tax software. Its customers are very loyal and supportive and often praise the company for listening and factoring customer opinion and feedback into the evolution of its products.  BTCSoftware has always been committed to delivering:

  • Great free technical support from a team who care about customers’ practices
  • Low, fixed prices that won’t increase dramatically for its customers
  • Simple, intuitive and easy to use software that helps accountancy firms get up and running in no time
  • Robust, secure and reliable software that helps accountancy practices support their own clients efficiently and effectively

Responsive to the latest changes

BTCSoftware has always adapted quickly to changes in tax and accounting legislation. Over the past 2-3 years it has been one of the developer community closely working with HMRC’s Digital team on the APIs for Making Tax Digital.  It has also recently launched a Cloud version of its product suite.


Talented team with a shared passion

Rob Ellis adds, “I am very proud of the BTCSoftware team who are hugely talented and genuinely passionate about our software. As a team we share a common belief of providing our customers with a first-class service to match our award-winning products.  Without the team and the support of our great customers, this award success just wouldn’t be possible.”

When the Software Excellence Awards were last held in 2013, BTCSoftware also won the Tax Software category and it is nice to see it continuing in this successful tradition.
