Didn't find your answer?

business planning software recommendation please -

why is it sooooooo hard to find a simple package that an idiot can use?  The packages listed in the reviews section don't seem to be indexed by functions or features.

For instance, Liveplan should not be listed AT ALL as it can't even deal with VAT, and seems to struggle with payroll- employers NIC etc.

I have never used software as all business are different, and what you need to track and plan will be different from the next accountant in the next businesses.

Virtually all business planning I have ever seen has been bespoke for that businesses needs, which by definition change over time depending on what you need to plan for exactly.

Simple planning software = simple plan
Idiot using any planning software = idiotic plan

Business planning is not fundamentally a complex exercise, but you do need to properly understand the drivers of activity, costs and cashflow. Software won't do that for you; worse, it may lead you to over-simplify or make erroneous assumptions.
