Xero is perfect for a small company. We are a Mac based practice and have had no issues with Xero on a Mac. No drawbacks that I can see but that is just a general overview. Without more specifics on your business its difficult to tell. Xero is great software but it would be naive to say that it will suit everyone.
I have trialled HubDoc over the last three months to see whether it is a viable alternative to RB. The one thing I liked about HD was its ability to login to your online accounts and download the invoices without you having to do it. I know RB has started beta testing Fetch which would do the same.
I like Hubdoc and will continue to use it for my business and may recommend it to new clients, especially tech clients as they have loads of online accounts so HD would be better but I don't think it offers enough advantages to switch existing clients over.
I am going to look at AutoEntry next.
I use Practice Ignition to generate the LOE when a new client signs up. Although I had to create the contents of the letter initially. But you only have to do this once and the software creates the LOE depending on the services offered.
I am sure there are others. PI is expensive considering how often I add clients but it's handy when clients add and remove services and you need to re-issue the LOE.
I agree with johngroganjga. Ask them to be more specific. Chances are they won't know what they are looking for.
Yes this is a follow up question. Enquiry started Dec 2017 which I believe is within in the time lines allowed. Return was submitted on time.
In 8 years of dealing with HMRC I have not had much to complain about but this is getting a little tedious.
The compliance officer is now looking for the ‘invoices that created the salary payments’ - either this is a trick question or the officer isn’t 100% certain how payroll works.
Depends on your service profile I think. If you are an expert in a field then I would say LinkedIn but for general practice stuff I would say FaceBook. Facebook has been good for me for smaller business (one director, side income limited company) and self-assessment. Bread and butter stuff. But for higher fee work I’d say you are better off on LinkedIn.
Thanks Seadog for the link. Very helpful.
Happened to me. A client asked me out to lunch. When we had ordered he brought up the issue of fees and I thought 'here we go' especially as he does more of the work I used to do, payroll etc. But he said he wasnt happy with the low fees because he felt that with a fixed fee, when he had questions to ask he didnt feel comfortable asking me because the fee was so low. The fee is not bad but we have agreed that for the next few months he is to ask me as many questions as he wants and will I adjust the fee accordingly.
I will also enthusiastically endorse Taxfiler. Been using it a couple of years now and am very happy with it.
