Ditching Iris

 I'm well on the way to ditching Iris. Don't get me wrong, I like the product (use it for accounts prep, CT and SA), but it's too expensive, with further price rises expected soon.

I've decided on VT for accounts production (looked at Forbes/Absolute Accounts but don't like the accounts format- seems a bit inflexible), but am yet to choose the tax software.

I'm leaning towards Forbes/Absolute as it looks like it will do the job and isn't owned by Iris (like PTP and Drumohr are now), but wondered whether I could export from VT to Forbes for both CT and SA.

Any comments would be welcomed, as would any other tax software suggestions.

Thanks.
