Thanks for the reply, my experience of Cashlow Manager goes back to V3 and I have always paid a one off fee but maybe that has changed
Any way I have found the installation CD. , ran "repair" and all seems well again, PHEW
The website I was being directed to turns out to be an old one asking me to pay for tha version I had so apologies to CFM for thinking that I was being mugged. For simple transaction recording it is a first rate product and one which several clients also use

I am a luddite !. For many years I used Keytime (and Objective Tax its predecessor) for personal tax and HMRC's free offering for Ct600's, preparing accounts using VT but printing them using a spreadsheet.
Panic set in when HMRC stopped agents using its free software last year. This coincided with a major downsizing in my run up to retiring. I bought Keytime for the current round and started using Taxfiler for Ltd Co's which at the price is brilliant. My Keytime licence was only for 50 returns so the overspill went onto Taxfiler. It isnt as good as Keytime but its OK and Keytime personal tax + ltd co's +CT600's would have cost me well north of £1200 next year and I'm now paying £12 per month. Also dont have to print Ltd Co accounts on spreadsheets now.
As an added bonus I resigned from ICAEW having been a member since 1972 which is another £600 odd saved. The combined saving makes keeping a small number of clients (50 or so) viable and I dont have to worry about having Moorgate Place looking over my shoulder.
I used to use Payemaster which was taken over by IRIS, after a disasterous year end run (well pre RTI) I changed to Moneysoft, stunning software at a bargain price
Interesting that Keytime is now owned by IRIS so presumably at some point that will morph into IRIS and that Payemaster is being discontinued

I qualified as an ACA then worked in industy for many years. Redundancy in my 40's led me to stating my own practice and I found being an FCA gave me an edge when touting for work. I semi retired last year, I'm not taking on any new work and resigned from the ICAEW which was a big relief. I dont have to worry about any trivial errors being punished (not that they ever were )
My advice woukld be to keep on paying for now

I had a similar situation recently. I notified my PI insurers and they engaged a solicitor to advise me.
Lots of questions were asked which seemed designed to "frame me" as a shadow director. Nothing came of it in the end but it cost me nothing.
Even the directors had no sanction after matters were concluded

Are you sure that in paying the dividends he isn't committing fraudulent preference against any creditors.
What stage have the potential creditors/claims reached?
No creditors at present, no warranties o/s, no claims made, there will be no preferences. Cant give any more details, client just being careful like he did when forming Ltd Co in first place

I was also a Freeway payroll customer at the time of the debacle. Now with Moneysoft which is stunning

If you are in practice it's time to give up.
Your questions are a bit like Bradley Wiggins asking which way does he point his bike to go forward

Now I understand what English As A Foreign Language means.Would the director of an unrepresented Ltd Co be helped by that ?
For that matter how many unrepresented Ltd Cos are there ?
