Digita clinches Smith & Williamson for tax software

Friday, 6 February 2009


Smith & Williamson has moved to Digita for its tax software, replacing current supplier CCH.

The firm moved from CCH, the accountancy IT provider that is part of Wolters Kluwer, to Digita Personal Tax.

Lee Drewett, senior national tax manager at Smith & Williamson, said: 'Having the best tax software and best customer service is essential for our tax practice to ensure that we continue to provide the very best taxation service to all our clients whether they be individuals, trusts or businesses.'

Digita is backed by Thomson Reuters and is part of the Sweet & Maxwell division that produces legal and publishing material. Digita also supplies software to Baker Tilly, RSM Bentley Jennison and Haines Watts.

SG comment: I suspect this is a significant win for Digita, now part of the Thomson Reuters empire. Thomson Reuters seem to be making good progress in the UK on the tax software front, having acquired both CrossBorder Solutions (Transfer Pricing software) and Digita (personal, business and trusts tax software) within the last 18 months.
