The Star Practice Management business has joined the IRIS Software Group, a UK corporation capitalized at $2.5 Billion that focuses on the Accounting, Education and Payroll Sectors, up to now mainly in the UK.

IRIS acquired Star’s UK Payroll business in 2018, and it has since expanded and prospered very well. Now the IRIS Software Group’s strategic plan is focused on international expansion, predominantly in North America. Accordingly, IRIS recognized that Star is the most logical investment as leader in the provision of advanced Practice Management solutions to CPA firms in the USA, Canada and Caribbean Islands.

Bernard Skalla, CEO of Star, says, “We see very significant benefits in being part of a much larger Group, with the ability to call on much more resource to boost our development and consultancy operation. Our ambitious product development plans remain absolutely in place as does our longstanding focus on the Accounting sector.”

IRIS Software Group is the UK’s largest privately held software company. Over 650,000 SME’s and 21,000 UK accounting firms use IRIS applications and 2.3 million UK employees are paid by IRIS payroll solutions.
