We've been using VT Final accounts for sole traders, partnership and companies for many years now.
It looks very professional and because its spreadsheet based you can very easily tweak it to your requirements.
For instance I didn't like the detailed profit and loss account and have changed the templates to suit.
You just need to be a little careful not to muck up the formulaes.
Not quite the same, but we have had a bad experience with them recently - they sent the renewal reminder once it was already too late to cancel under the contract that we signed many years ago.
I tried to be reasonable with them and was hoping for a compromise but they refused to budge.
I couldn't argue with what the contract said, but felt it was slightly underhand to do that, and a lot of contract websites (including .gov) suggest that renewals should go out when there is still enough time to cancel.
Their attitude and treatment of a long-standing customer will make us think twice about using them for other products and services.
We had this exact same thing too.
These agents write to me, regularly. From what I see, they are a credible firm. I'm also sure that Jennifer Adams has mentioned them, in one of her posts too?
I can recommend these - Nicola Draper was excellent when we sold our practice and our buyer was impressed too.
We'll be using Absolute as one option but I've literally just looked at Vitaltax which seems an easy solution as bridging software too.
Do they usually say "you have the wrong type of account". I had this and gave up at this point to try another day but if its normal I might carry on again some time later !
We're going to offer this service. The clients that use spreadsheets seem to be adverse to software and therefore we will use our bridging software to file - or that's the plan. Not sure on pricing yet, but considering £40 per quarter to cover our time and the software cost.
Yes I've just watched that webinar and have the notes -sounds very easy. However what it fails to address is when the links aren't showing or even where they are meant to be. And even once you've managed to link your old GG account with the new one, no clients are showing and there is no visible link to start entering your clients VAT number to authorise them or whatever you call it.
I can't see the link on our page but when I clicked the above post by jon-griffey it went straight into the link and our account (which I had open anyway), so thanks for that.
On listening to a seminar today we then need to sign each individual client up to MTD - not sure how we do that if we can't see the clients?
I don't get the idea that we can't see our list of clients - seem bizarre and unworkeable.
I've just looked at a clients VT backup file that's been sent to me and its running at 500 invoices a month - I've not experienced any slow down due to the size of the file in this or any other clients.
In these cases I write to the Revenue advising that there has been no trading since 31 May 2017 and that it will be applying to be struck off.
I then submit the form to Companies House. No final accounts are prepared.
if there has been trading then final accounts and CT600 are prepared and submitted to the Revenue (and the CT paid if any) before submitting the form to Companies House.
