We understand that modern-day accountancy is supported by industry standard software which ensures that the correct procedures are followed in an industry that is regulated stringently to precise methodologies.

BlackStone Associates provide IT support to small and medium sized firms in London and South East England. We know that IT problems can cripple your business during peak tax season - you can't afford to waste time with unreliable networks, incompatible software and employee communication breakdowns.
HMRC is pushing digitisation with the introduction of 'Making Tax Digital' (MTD). In the wake of GDPR and e-Privacy regulations, digital security is also in the spotlight - the industry is changing fast and the required IT infrastructure is becoming ever more sophisticated.
There's nothing more frustrating than a poorly performing SAGE, DIGITA, IRIS or other accounting system. Much worse is a system which is regularly offline - leaving your clients waiting for payroll, VAT returns and the other vital services you provide.
