What are your favourite practice efficiency tips?

Intuit have asked us to help them out with a practice efficiency whitepaper that Nigel Harris will be writing in the next week.

Some of the material will come from members of their Pro Advisors Programme, but why should they get all the fun. If you're in practice, have you come up with any particularly effective improvements that you'd like to share with other accountants.

And if you're not a practitioner, what are the things your accountant has done that have really impressed you by making your life easier?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions - Nigel has said he'll be crediting the originators of any tips that he uses.

Sort out the VAT

Having corrected the date format problem, do not reintroduce it in subsequent versions

Make all versions backwards compatible

Make the help line helpful and much faster

If the help line number is still an income-generating (eg 0845) number then get a geographic one.

Make transaction data import user friendly
