London Firm Sets Up New Belfast Operation

Supported by Invest Northern Ireland, Arkk Solutions Ltd, a London-based financial regulatory and compliance software company, is setting up an operation in Belfast, which will initially employ nine staff.

The software company specialises in XBRL and iXBRL, a computer language for the electronic transmission of business and financial data. It has developed software to enable companies to iXBRL tag their accounts as required by HMRC in the UK and the Office of the Revenue Commissioners in the Republic of Ireland.

The new Belfast centre will replace the company's existing operation in India and support its continued growth in the UK and Republic of Ireland markets.

Invest NI has offered £45,000 of support through its Jobs Fund.
