Suffolk-based records management company Inform Direct has formed an alliance with leading accountancy firm KPMG.

Inform Direct’s secretarial software will be used by KPMG’s Small Business Accounting service to submit annual returns, maintain shareholder records, update officer records and change company details for its clients.

The software, developed by the Inform Direct team in Ipswich, will also allow KPMG to incorporate new businesses through the cloud-based system.

Henry Catchpole, chief executive of Inform Direct, said: “We have been working with KPMG for a while to demonstrate the ease and effectiveness of our system, showing them how it can improve the service they offer their clients, whilst making the secretarial process much more seamless and straightforward for their employees.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have signed an agreement with KPMG to rubber stamp their use of our system for their company records management team and we look forward to developing the relationship with them going forwards.”
