Licensing App to Prepare Accountants for 2016 Licensing Changes

If you’re a practising accountant then you need to get on-top of the licensing changes which come into effect from mid-2016, but don’t worry, there’s an app for that now too!

With the 1st of July, 2016, looming as the change-over licensing date it’s about time you figured out what sort of accountant licensing you need exactly, figuring this out is the first step on your licensing journey. Once you’ve taken it, the next becomes easier and your obligations become clearer.

“Having spoken to hundreds of accountants in the last 12 months, we’ve learned that there’s a lot of confusion, misinformation and a general lack of information in the market around licensing which is why we developed this app,” said Greg Holman, the app’s creator and Director of GPS Wealth.

How Does the App Work?

All you have to do is fill out a questionnaire which gets you on your way towards getting licensed for mid-2016.

“Our goal is to educate accountants on their licensing options because time is ticking away. Getting ready for the new regime doesn’t have to be complex or expensive and the app aims to make it easy for accountants to move forward with confidence,” explained Mr Holman.

Once an accountant has filled out the form and submitted it, they will be contacted by a qualified accountant to discuss their circumstances, what options are available and the best course of action. 

App Advantages 

“There’s absolutely no obligation or pressure placed on accountants to partner with GPS Wealth for their licensing needs. The app was designed to make information on licensing readily available to more accountants because there’s only 10 months left before the accountants’ exemption is removed which will force many accountants to be licensed in order to continue providing the services they’ve always provided,” Mr Holman made clear.

If you haven’t got started on your licensing journey yet then why not give the app a try? It’s easy, free and you can use it on the go. Don’t wait any longer, get accountant licensing out of the way earlier rather than later.
