I work in a tax department for a 5 partner firm where we deal with about approx 1000 tax returns each year. For a small firm we have a wide variety of clients which include sole traders, large and small partnerships, LLP's, clients with large share portfolios, non-resident landlords, lloyds underwriters - I could go on, but you get the idea!
We currently use CCH, which meets all of our needs, but it is getting very expensive, and making us feel ripped off.
I have looked at lots of posts on here that suggest software for sole practioners, but wondered if anyone had any suggestions for a tax department of 4 staff, working on a windows network, where the data is stored on the server for ease of backing up.
Any suggestions would be very much appreicated. We have been using CCH for some years now and although we would like something that is cheaper, don't want to shoot ourselves in the foot if it doesn't do what we need it to do!! Won't be savng any money if the chargeable time on jobs increases due to software that is not adequate.
We did look at Sage tax software, a little while ago now, and after some debate, they advised that their tax software could only deal with 80% of our client base.
