“It is true that I am no longer with Block,” Katrulya said in response to an email enquiry. “I will soon be announcing where I have landed.”
The tax services company announced its planned program two years ago this month. Block said it was rolling out the Block Accounting Services program nationally after testing in the company’ hometown of Kansas City, Mo.
The company did not respond to a request for comments.
A component of the program was that firms would complete an educational program under Katrulya’s BMRG Advisory Services in order to be considered.
At the time, Jeremy Smith, director of Block Small Business, said there were two goals: growing and modernizing Block’s accounting services, which were offered through the company’s stores and providing firms with an exit strategy through the BMRG portion.
Block was also utilizing a variety of cloud-based software packages to deliver services to clients: Xero for bookkeeping, ADP for payroll, Bill.com for accounts payable, Tally for expenses, SmartVault for document management and Avalara for sales tax.Last modified on Wednesday, 14 September 2016
