Walker & Sutcliffe Invests in Software to Enhance Services for Property Market

Nick Ledgard, Practice Partner at Walker & Sutcliffe Chartered Accountants

Walker & Sutcliffe, the chartered accountancy practice based in Huddersfield, has invested in Hammock, the property finance platform for UK landlords, to support its growing list of clients within the market.

In addition to providing advice and guidance in relation to UK Property Returns, Walker & Sutcliffe has received an increasing number of enquiries regarding making tax digital (MTD), a requirement that will become mandatory for many businesses within two years.

Responding to the needs of its customers, the practice has put in place Hammock to make the process of migrating from paper-based accounts to digital bookkeeping and filing simpler.

Practice Partner, Nick Ledgard, comments: “As a trusted accountancy partner within the property sector, we want to make sure that we have the latest technologies and software in place to support our clients whatever their needs.

“Hammock is a user-friendly system that was designed with landlords in mind. We will use it to assist our clients as we work with them to move their paper-based accounting to digital.

“Although many people are accustomed to filing online, this isn’t the case for everyone. Thanks to a last-minute extension from HMRC, we have a further two-years before MTD becomes mandatory, but that isn’t as long as people think.

“That’s why we are taking our clients through the process now, so that they can confidently access, upload and file all necessary financial documentation by the deadlines required.”
