What our Members Say
At BASDA we provide a collective industry voice to government and policy makers to support our members on key issues impacting their business. We also offer a collaborative platform where our community of members share knowledge and experience. Together we support each other to become more efficient and effective in today’s highly competitive market place. Don’t take our word for it – hear what our members have to say about BASDA.
Keeping ahead of legislation and its interpretation is a significant challenge for all software vendors. BASDA enables us to have influence on legislation as it emerges, with engagement at the highest level. We also have the benefit of being able to work collectively with other BASDA members on interpretation of regulation – which saves us many days per year.
Nomisma is delighted to join such an industry leading organisation. We look forward to playing an active part and in doing so enabling accountants in practice keep at the forefront of the significant changes within the industry.
BASDA is our ‘go to’ for all things UK business software compliance and our membership ensures we can remain confident we are providing the best service possible to our clients. The events are insightful and we value our interactions and the BASDA expertise shared.
Through the mobile record keeping app initiative that BASDA lead with HMRC, we have already attracted thousands of new customers to Sage with an additional bonus in that there were no marketing costs. The promotion was undertaken by HMRC, as this formed part of their educational strategy to improve understanding and adoption of good business practices by micro businesses – leading to improved comprehension and compliance of their tax duties.

Specialist Interest Groups
Lakeshore Data Management
BASDA is the ‘go to organisation’ for ensuring a software and services company can be kept on the inside track of how Government planned legislation could potentially impact their business. The ability to meet with other businesses through the BASDA forums provides for an insight into shared problems and how they may be overcome. Also the open dialogue that BASDA offers with our peers will permit us to better understand the current and future business climate of the UK and EU. Continuing to support BASDA will ensure that our industry continues to engage with Government and related Agencies in a positive and proactive manner. Without BASDA there would be no such engagement.
We have joined BASDA because we want to formally engage with HMRC (as part of a body rather than as an individual company) on the application of new legislation in the Temporary labour market. Too often legislation is drafted without properly considering the practical implications and this creates complexity, difficulty and, in many cases, tax loopholes. Our intention is to embrace HMRC’s initiatives and make implementation simpler for the users of our software.
Sentinel Technologies trust BASDA for providing services whether it’s about Brexit, Cyber Security, Faster Payments, Making Tax Digital. Their services and hard work on behalf of their members especially in the field of R & D helps us to build credibility with new customers.
