Accounts Prep Software

Accounts Prep Software

Hi All,

Was hoping that someone can suggest a good accounts prep software I can use. Currently have over 20 clients but this is rising month by month. My current method is in excel... works as I am quite competant using excel (worked in corporate finance for 12 years) but feel that if there is a quicker and easier way, then I should transform.

Thanks guys.

Digita Accounts Production does all you want.

I use Digita and I particularly like the integration between all the programs.

Once again and, without question

I have used Keytime, for the last 4 years. The systems have developed to an exceptionally high standard, in that period, with regular updates and seamless transfer into each tax year.

Pricing couldn't be more reasonable and, the support staff are "user friendly".

No, I don't work for Keytime or, have any other interest, other than being a very satisfied user.

VT Accounts... no question!

Excel based, cheap ... will do everything you will ever need. Been using it for 11 years now as have many, many others on here.

Another vote for VT

Very simple to use and flexible too.  Plus comes with the excellent VT Transaction + bookkeeping software too which I did not realise I needed until I got it!

...and for tax?


Apologies for going a bit off topic. Does anyone have any views on the best tax software?

I've seen Taxcalc and BTC recommended. Does anyone have any views on either of those or better someone who has used both and can advise which they felt was better and why? I'm not sure how the pricing compare either.

I use BTC

Which is good - but Taxcalc gets good reviews here too.  I like the fact that I can file VT accounts electronically at Companies House with BTC.

Download trials of both of them and have a go.
