Tanda recently joined over 70 exhibitors at Xerocon London 2018 – one of the biggest fintech showcases in the UK. Held at the Excel London conference centre, industry leaders from Europe, the Middle East, and Africa were present, discussing the future of business and cloud accounting, at the 2-day event. With over 3,000 attendees, Xerocon is truly the accounting world’s ‘Coachella’. The event also marked Tanda’s first year in the UK. “Xerocon London 2018 absolutely exceeded our expectations in terms of size and how great it was to meet the wider Xero community,” said Macrina Rozario, Partner Manager for Tanda UK. Xero, founded in 2006, is used in over 180 countries by 1.58 million subscribers and integrates with more than 700 add-on solutions. “The best thing about the Xero community is how open everyone is to getting to know each other’s product and working collaboratively through a diverse ecosystem of apps and vendors,” she added. This year, the HMRC initiative Making Tax Digital (MTD) underscored the importance of legally compliant platforms. “With most Xero clients preparing for MTD, this is the perfect time to look at Tanda and make the move onto the cloud if you haven’t already done so,” Rozario said. Due to MTD, business owners and managers will need to ensure a streamlined payroll process by 1 April 2019. With Xero as one of the few MTD-compliant accounting platforms, you can easily integrate the system with Tanda to ensure accurate pay runs and no violations down the line.

According to Country Manager Bryce Davies, Tanda UK has been building integrations with British payroll systems like Xero, Sage, and Brightpay, as well as all types of POS systems. “We are also building our leave entitlement management, which is bespoke to the UK,” he said. Tanda, which opened its office in Clapham, London a year ago, is looking forward to expanding its business operations and welcoming new clients and partners. “We’ve already grown from an MRR of £2,000 to £10,000 in just 12 months. We now have over 120 clients, and we’re committed to staying in the UK through Brexit,” Davies said. Tanda’s clients in the UK include the Manchester City Council, Net-a-Porter, and new Tesco discount chain, Jack’s. Inspired by the success of their participation at Xerocon London 2018, Tanda is set to join the conference again in 2019. “It was great to hear so many positive comments and feedback on the product. A lot of people we connected with last year were impressed with how far the products came in just a year of adapting to the UK market,” Rozario said. “We’re hoping next year will be bigger and better and [will] allow us to connect with even more accountants and bookkeepers who can eventually become valued long-term partners,” she concluded.
