“Hobsons have been 2020 members for over 18 years. The training and support we receive from 2020 is excellent and they are always one step ahead in anticipating our needs.
We recently upgraded our membership, giving our firm  CPD and monthly tax webinars for our entire team. This enabled us to save a small fortune on the way we had previously been providing training
As part of the membership, we also receive the incredibly helpful Making Tax Digital action Pack. For cost involved, it’s fantastic value for money”
Jim Scully, Hobsons

“Conference speakers provided good, relevant practical advice and tips, supported by actual experiences, to help towards moving to a cloud based practice.
The exhibitors were all knowledgeable and very helpful and it’s reassuring to learn about products to help with practice development.”
Ravi Kesari, Wren Accountancy Services Ltd

“2020 membership is a no brainer for accountancy practices. You receive tremendous value from the CPD webinars, they are a bonus! If you want to know what is new and what is happening in the profession just join, you will not regret it. We’ve previously belonged to other membership groups and I cannot imagine not being a member of 2020. ”
Philip Wood, Barringtons Limited


We have been using the new business kit for 2 years now. A glossy, paperback book is much more professional and valued than the PDF documents we used to supply and is a great way of differentiating ourselves from other accountants. The service itself is slick and involves very little input from ourselves.

Andrew Steele, 360 Chartered Accountants

Great ideas, practical examples, very motivational - great group to belong to!

Dawn McLaughlin, Dawn McLaughlin & Co

Some more fantastic stuff – just got to go away and DO IT!

Neill Currie,Jerroms

Incredibly user friendly, de-mystifying areas such as MOSS that scared me

Vanessa Carroll, Agutter Associates Chartered Accountants ,  Agutter Associates Chartered Accountnats

You cannot underestimate the benefit this provides for clients. It takes away the awkwardness of having to charge for expertise and your time when the client may be feeling vulnerable. An excellent service all round.
