I have reached agreement with HMRC for all years under enquiry though no settlement yet as the terms are being offered nationally to provide fairness.
The clients are more than happy in the circumstances.

VT vs Xero
Vt works on my MB Air via Parallels. No problem.
Xero has continuing problems with its banking link, requires a wfi connection and isn't cheap. It feels like it was written for another jurisdiction. Beware!

Book keeping & Software
It's a no-btainer.
VT and Moneysoft. Unbeatable software, support and price 'Nough said?

I have used Dragon for almost a year now. It's acceptable, but not good. It requires absolute silence; it saves my profile as it changes with increased dictation, but never seems to find an opportunity to upload it to the main database. It has a real problem with UK addresses and has never learned the difference between "2, two, too and to" no matter how many contextual tries I have made.
Support is good at stating the obvious, but little real help.
Having said all that I still use it daily, helping it along with my keyboard when it simply won't do as it's told, but considering it's been around so long, I expect more.
At least it doesn't answer back, make constant cups of coffee and discuss last night'sTV with the other computers in the office! It's not very good looking either so it's 50:50 on the human replacement angle.

It's really good. I have used it for over 13 years. The support is excellent too. I am coping with the iXBRL also.
It doesn't handle LLPs which could be a problem, and it won't handle consolidations either.
I love it!

I sign up to MPAN back in April 07 and tried to integrate the accounts package into my practice, but frankly I found it worse than Sage. Unforgiving, clumsy and not of this modern age.
After 8 months of trying to work with it, I reverted to VT as my main in house and recommended package and regret straying in the first place.
Mamut's offer of "free" support is a con. As soon as you try to sign up, they want you to pay them. How free is that?
