Its a made up word lacking sufficient vowels which makes it look like an acronym, such as
FUTile Reaction to Lack of Interest
Its all Bllx really the functionality is more important than self-indulgent rebranding

Been testing this
I want to achieve a greater level of final accounts and CT integration and also look at having both on the cloud. So back end of last year I signed up for SageOne and I'm surprised that it seems quite a neat solution, the two issues I've had to date being:
1. Lack of a TB import in the Final Accounts module which is a real pain if you want to migrate clients from another FA platform. Works fine if you've been keeping the books on SageOne though but even so you'd still want to import comparatives.
2. The TB entry is cumbersome because there is no way to filter the comprehensive list of accounts, which is particularly annoying when you just want to edit a line.
3. Inconsistent integration between FA and CT600, so having made an adjustment in FA my CT profit per the accounts isn't updating.
Having many clients on Xero I was awaiting news on their UK Final Accounts but there seems to be no sign of this.

At the expense of .....?
Love Xero but not sure it can be all things to everyone globally? Does the clear focus on N. America mean UK functionality takes a back seat? After all, UK payroll and final accounts are big promises. Is there an argument for UK accountants to consider UK focused software or does the power of the brand win over?

Is a 2 tier system needed?
I think its hard to argue that there shouldn't be some minimum standards for agents, particularly given that the accountancy profession is unregulated.
At present we have a de facto 2 tier system with some registered agents offering "filing only" services for personal tax returns for example. They don't act as agents in the sense that they get 64-8 type authorisation for their clients, so perhaps there ought to be a 2 tier system that recognises the distinction (or a 3 tier one to separately include those acting non-commercially on behalf of someone else). I'd argue for the higher level requirements to include PI cover, but I'm on the fence on qualifications and membership of a professional body/having a practising certificate.
