Just so you know - Taxfiler has just released its practice management software. Or at least I now have access to it. Can't comment on whether it is any good yet...

Thank you all for your replies so far! Sorry I should have been more specific.
The company is an SPV holding only one residential property let on a 3rd party commercial basis. There are no other activities.
Does that change anyone's thoughts on it?

Perfect - that you so much for the quick response.

OK - for those who want to know the answer to how to register an LLP to get a UTR where there are only corporate member you need to do the following (I can confirm that this has worked):
- Get hold of form SA402 - Registering a Partner for self assessment who is not an individual and send it in
- Several weeks later, if it has not turned up, call the agent helpline and explain that this falls between the cracks in HMRC. Not really a self assessment for individuals issue but certainly not a corporation tax issue. Eventually they will send the call through to the tech team who will be able to, after much effort, find the said LLP, confirm (hopefully) that a UTR has been created, and get them to send the UTR to the registered address.
That was quite a lot of effort to actually achieve this but the key is form SA402

I'd be interested if you found something better or at least similar.
I need webinars as live just doesn't work for me with childcare and other family responsibilities

You should be on the beta trial!

So I've just test run it and I can say that its half excellent!
Good points - for tax returns you can directly upload them into Openspace and request authorisation. No downloading and reuploading, and no setting Openspace up with a new account - it pulls the data through from Taxfiler (sort of). You end up with a clear digital link between what you sent and what has been signed.
I say half excellent as it only works for tax returns, and this I simply cannot comprehend the design scope that they came up with.
If you create accounts on Taxfiler (as I do) you can't push these into Openspace - which to my mind is frankly bonkers.
I'm fairly sure Taxfiler has won awards for its accounts prep, and I find it really good, so why-oh-why would they not make this available to accounts.
Any time saving that comes from not downloading and uploading tax returns is offset by having to do it for the accounts.
Come on Taxfiler! I don't believe the Evil-Iris stories that everyone seems to be touting. I'm sure there are lots of good product developments that are on its way, and I don't even begrudge the price increase in return for these developments, but the 80:20 principle applies here - you've done 80% of the work but that final 20% would yield the final 80% benefit to me, and I'm sure others.
Finish the development and make the Openspace link apply to accounts as well

Wow - didn't realise they were illegal. Thanks for the pointer. I think I will have to disallow the expense.

I might be missing something here - who is Justin? And what are we ignoring?
