Darlington-based MyFirmsApp has been selected for the Great British Scaleup Programme.

MyFirmsApp, the largest global accountancy app, was chosen by TechMarketView for the programme which is designed to assist fast-growing UK tech companies accelerate even faster.

Joel Oliver, CEO of MyFirmsApp, said: “To be invited to join the Scaleup Programme is a great privilege and we are looking forward to being able to learn from those that have navigated the sometimes difficult challenge of growing an International Tech business.”

TechMarketView analysts perceive the opportunity for MyFirmsApp is huge with an “addressable market of 350,000 accounting firms in major English speaking geographies”.

App-driven technology is transforming the way firms communicate with their clients and the way in which they can increase visibility by having their own branded app in the App Store and on their clients’ mobile home screens.

The Scaleup Programme will give MyFirmsApp the opportunity to tap into the expertise of a team of successful entrepreneurs and seasoned executives with track records of scaling tech firms in this country.

Founded just three years ago, MyFirmsApp has already built a client base of more than 1,000 and there have been more than 250,000 downloads of its apps.

The potential for growth is further amplified with the rolling out of HMRC's Making Tax Digital, as Oliver told BusinessCloud in April.
