I'd be interested to see what fellow accountants use as I seem to pay a fortune for software. I currently use Sage and it is very good and does everything I need so may well stay with it but if there is cheaper software that is as good I'd love to know. I have clients ranging from 1 employee to 50 employees for payroll and of course I have the Pensions module as well. All access their payslips on the Sage portal too to comply with GDPR. I have one client who wants to also be able to access their payroll and asking why it is not on a cloud system. I'm not keen on this idea but a cloud based system may be useful in this climate if I wanted my employee to run payroll remotely. Currently it is only set up on my office laptop so only |I can run it.
I have looked at Xero (which I do use for bookkeeping) and Quickbooks but having tried out their payroll there does seem to be shortcomings for a larger payroll so not keen on those. Also of course HMRC's own payroll isnt great for 50 + employee's
Iris is another that I have used but pricing seems pretty similar to Sage as far as I can see.
As I say I'd be interested to see what others use
thanks in advance
