We are aiming to confirm the launch of our GDPR services for accountants shortly.
As I indicated last week, I have been working with Philip Mather and Vakis Paraskeva of GDPR Auditing Ltd to create an effective GDPR compliance tool for UK accountancy firms. I have pre-filled a good deal of the admin detail required by the process, based on my understanding of our profession. This should make your task that much easier.
The nub of the service is a Workbook, that when completed, will contain the evidence you are required to keep in order to stay compliant. Additionally, you will have access to an advisory knowledge base that will be continuously updated and keep you abreast of changes in legislation or the application thereof.
Why you should sit up and take notice?
Doing nothing is not an option. You may be fined if you are found to be in breach of the GDPR, but for accountants, this is just the tip of the iceberg. You also are at risk of:
- losing clients who need their accountant to be GDPR compliant, they are, after all, sharing their personal data with you; and you
- will need to find alternative outsourcing partners if your present suppliers cannot demonstrate they are also GDPR compliant. This should be of immediate concern if you send clients’ data overseas for analysis.
How much is this going to cost me?
The GDPR workbook will be available for £600 plus VAT. There are additional services we will be offering if you want us to verify that your workbook has been completed correctly, or if you would like to outsource the complete process – we would do all the work for you.
