Accounting for IT companies - what to look for and what to be aware of?
As part of a comprehensive service for the company, our offices offer companies from the IT industry:
- accounting services,
- human resources and payroll services,
- cost accounting,
- analysis of profitability of products, services and projects;
- assistance in stocktaking of fixed assets,
- preparation and consolidation of financial statements with group reports,
- support during merger and acquisition procedures,
- business valuation.
When choosing an accounting office, an IT company should be sure that the accountants and tax advisors are really familiar with the technology industry will apply solutions tailored to the specific revenue and costs of this type of business. Our clients include many technology companies. We have the experience necessary to reliably service this sector.
Employees of an accounting firm who never worked in the IT industry may find it difficult to properly record costs associated with specialized equipment, paid subscriptions or licenses for software or copyrights for unusual (in other industries) works such as source codes.
Employee matters such as the form of employment, billing and rewards for IT professionals and regular non-wage benefits may raise some questions for less experienced HR personnel.
Our experts have years of experience in accounting and payroll services for companies in the IT sector. Some of them perfected their skills in accounting or human resources departments of technology companies, so they know their characteristics and to which issues pay special attention to.
The IT services market is changing faster than ever before. Not so long ago, technological development was driven by new hardware and software. Today, agile software development and cloud solutions are the trend. This has significantly changed the way companies use applications and how they are extended.
With the expectations of IT entrepreneurs in mind, we are constantly developing our accounting and consulting services to seamlessly adapt to new market conditions - which are not always followed by relevant regulations. A high degree of flexibility is required by clients seeking help with issues where off-the-shelf accounting solutions are not applicable. These problems often involve complex business processes that require the knowledge of an experienced expert to resolve them quickly without disrupting the business.
We also strive to maintain agile practices when implementing new processes and computerizing our company. We are able to perform project-based data analysis for you. We use Power BI software for this purpose. You can read more about data analysis here. LINK
In case of the IT industry it is very important to constantly monitor changes in the law and to have regular contact with public administration institutions. Without knowledge of changes and legal interpretations specific to the industry, it is not possible to implement appropriate accounting or human resources solutions.
Unfortunately, legal regulations often do not keep up with the development of modern technology, so not all economic events in the IT sector will be reflected in the current state of the law. The role of the accounting office in such a situation will be to reliably inform you about the available solutions. For this purpose we support you with our legal and tax department.
An equally important aspect of cooperation between technology companies and an accounting office is the form of communication. It is worth noting that despite the rapidly growing remote communication that the IT industry is accustomed to, many accounting firms still operate within traditional solutions.
When deciding on a company that handles accounting and payroll matters, you should pay particular attention to the technology and communication solutions used.
In the digital era, when more and more companies are opting to work remotely - unlimited remote access to financial and accounting documentation or necessary summaries and reports has become particularly important.
When using remote services, special care should be taken to ensure that company data is properly secured. A great facilitation will also be the possibility of self-organization of documents in folders and ease of use of the communication platform's user panel.
In order to meet these expectations, as part of our services we provide you with the possibility of using the Customer Extranet , which enables instant and completely remote exchange of documents and information between our clients and their accountants.
IT companies often sell their products and services abroad, facing language or legal barriers. This can complicate the sales process and also limit the company's efficiency. Having local legal and tax advisors can help companies address these issues and provide better support to international customers.
We can complete all tax and legal procedures on your behalf and provide you with all necessary documents. We have a strong network of partners in 153 countries worldwide. So we can help your company expand overseas as well as provide local services.
Learn more about our support in the international arena
Expert accountants are needed to set up the right financial structures for foreign sales or to help with the complex cross-border tax reporting requirements. But implementing a global accounting system can be difficult for many companies because they don't have the expertise needed to handle international transactions - especially on tax issues.
We can help you with international tax planning, ensuring compliance with local tax rules and regulations in different jurisdictions by properly maintaining accounting records to international standards and filing tax returns for VAT registration in foreign countries.
IP BOX tax relief for technology industry is designed to support research and development activities. It is available to entrepreneurs who earn income from qualified intellectual property rights and meet certain requirements. Under the relief, it is possible to apply a preferential income tax rate of 5% to such income.
However, due to the multitude of obligations and complexity of tax interpretations, many companies operating in the IT sector resign from this relief because they do not know whether they meet its conditions.
Our accounting office will verify the services provided by your company in terms of eligibility for the IP Box tax relief and will help you prepare the necessary documents and, if necessary, request an interpretation of the relief.
National and international support programs offer grants for business development at every stage. Funds can be used for research and development, market research, product testing, prototyping, qualification upgrading and other activities that enhance the company's ability to compete in global markets.
Due to the nature of public funding, meticulous, detailed reporting in accordance with the standards established by the grantor is essential. Correct accounting for grants is a great challenge, and mistakes made at the reporting stage can lead to the suspension of pay-out of those of funds (or even worse, their cancellation and subsequent repayment of already advanced to the client financial means). Therefore, experienced accountants, who know the standards and procedures for accounting of public funds, play a key role here.
