AAB launches dedicated trip tracker app for clients

Anderson Anderson & Brown (AAB) are delighted to announce the launch of a bespoke travel app solution, the ‘AAB Trip Tracker’. We are proud to be one of the first accountants in Aberdeen, and indeed Scotland, to create and launch an app of this kind.

For clients who spend a significant amount of time travelling abroad with work or live outside the UK, maintaining an electronic diary or paper trail of their movements throughout the tax year can be time consuming and is often pulled together based on memory after the end of the tax year when UK and overseas tax returns require completion. The app provides an easy to use platform to record these travel details and its GPS functionality means that the calendar automatically updates with the country of presence, reducing manual input required. The app also allows clients to record whether it is a work or rest day and if the day was spent working on or offshore. AAB can then download this information and use it for the purposes of client’s UK tax returns or identifying any potential overseas tax issues.

In addition to this powerful tracking tool, the app also has a number of other helpful features for clients including tax calculators, mileage trackers, quick links to useful sections of the AAB website and contact details.

Graeme Allan, Managing Partner, commented “Communication is key to how we do business here at AAB. We see this app as a big investment in broadening our clients’ means of communicating with us in a way which is most convenient for them. We also spent time working with clients to develop the trip tracker section of the app to ensure that it has all of the features they will get the most benefit from.

Initial responses to the app have been very encouraging. We’ve had some great feedback from users, particularly on the ease of use of the app overall and that so much useful information is readily available.

As well as using the app, it is important to remember that, behind the scenes, our team at AAB are always on hand to provide professional, personal advice and guidance.”

The app is completely free and can be downloaded at the Apple App Store or Android Market Place (Google Play). We are delighted that our app will ease what can be a time consuming and sometimes frustrating task for our clients when tracking work across the globe, as well as enabling us to provide useful and up to date information to our clients whenever it is needed.
