BrightPay directors Paul Byrne and Ross Webster were in London earlier this week for the 5th Annual Bookkeepers Summit. The event is the world's largest one-day seminar dedicated to bookkeepers and the work that they do.
Last Monday, over 500 delegates gathered in the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in Westminster where they enjoyed a full day of presentations from leading speakers including the Minister for Pensions, and representatives from HMRC and The Pensions Regulator. Many of this year’s presentations were focused on auto enrolment.
The day-long event also included a drinks reception, a member’s dinner and an exhibition. The exhibition showcased various software products aimed at Bookkeepers, with BrightPay being one of the 18 stands to visit. The Bookkeepers Summit was one of BrightPay’s busiest exhibitions to date with hundreds of delegates visiting the BrightPay stand.
The event was organised by the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB) who gave away a Smart car on the day to a lucky winner. Overall, the day was a great success with many describing this year as ‘the best one yet’.
BrightPay also achieved ICB accreditation for its payroll software and the independent report can be downloaded here.
