In a similar situation to you.
Made the decision to stick with Adobe Sign as there's no need for the client to create an account.
Adobe Sign comes with 20GB of cloud storage for documents uploaded. Openspace charge much more for the same amount of storage.

Go to Xero HQ (outside of a specific client, Adviser report packs are designed practice-wide).
Then go to reports along the top.
Then go to New Template and add whichever reports you want to include.
The client specific report pack is found under the Adviser tab of Xero's reports page.

I'm not a fan of most Sage products but I do think that Sage Accounts Production Advanced isn't bad for FRS102 group accounts (and Charities).
We have a license for 10 companies, single machine for £368/year.
For group accounts it has 3 'periods' in each year.
p1 is the holding co's TB.
p3 is all of the subsidiary co's TBs.
p2 is where the consolidation adjustment journal goes

Although the HMRC guidance page is quite long, most questions can be answered with this flowchart:

Agree. It'll likely be an 'Active NFFE' for non-financial foreign entity.

I know that accountsIQ market themselves as medium-scale cloud accounts software without going full ERP.
Kind of like an in-between product for bigger than Xero, QBO etc but smaller than Netsuite, SAP etc.
Not actually used but perhaps worth a look.

Xero, Quickbooks Online, FreeAgent, Sage Business Cloud are fine. All meet your criteria.
Have a look and see which you like the look of.
Personally I find Xero the best combination of easy for the client to use and easy for the accountant to get info / correct errors / make adjustments.

The issue is that some banks haven't actually got their Open Banking system set up yet.
There's a list of banks and what you need to do if anything here:
Unfortunately the answer for a lot of them is "wait until the bank has their new feed ready" which could be after the old feeds stop working.

If the freehold is owned by the company and it extends a lease then it has made a disposal and you should calculate the chargeable gain and include in the company's CT return.
The company pays CT on the gain and the rest could be paid out as a dividend.
Have you googled something like "management company lease gain" yet? I'm sure the answers you seek are out there already.

I have a thinkpad X1 Carbon and it's great.
Very light, plenty fast enough and great battery life. Most of the time I don't take the charger with me as I know the battery will easily last all day.
They're expensive but there are plenty of used/refurbished ones around.
I've always found a refurbished top of the range laptop is better than a brand new one for the same money.
