Great article and some fab comments.
Embarrassed to say we have been with Xero for about 4 years.
Do they have ANY accountants working for them?

Interesting I didnt know about SAF-T and that quite a few countries on the continent have already been doing this for a number of years!
But your answer to my question should then be "Not yet" , rather than "No" and in the mean time, I would be wary of Mr Mischief's warning that Bridging software is a safer bet.
The question we should be asking ourselves is how did the tax authorities in these other countires (France, Portugal, Austria etc) manage to successfully impose transactional level disclosures on a national scale so quickly?

interesting article, as I have yet to try the "Beta"
Q1. does cloud software mean that ALL transactions get uploaded to HMRC, not just the box totals?
Q2. if yes, doesn't that prejudice cloud software, as Bridging software presumably just submits the box totals?

ok, points (2) - (4) have won me over! As my firm says to me about Xero "are you on commission for Trello?" :)
Looking forward to seeing the pics, as sign up and play usually convinces just me, as you need some foresight to visualise the fully populated/ functioning version.
Is the free to use version fully functional?

Fantastic post Bobby.
Although we use PM software, we use it mainly for CRM billing and timesheets. We dont really use the deadlines module as its not very versatile, and the workflow module is harder to use than doing the job itself.
So I'd like to start a shared spreadsheet for deadlines.
Would a deadlines spreadsheet be separate from a Trello chart or could it be integrated?

Thank you Richard.
"For all the API links it supports to other applications and Companies House, the developer is still getting to grips with the APIs needed to access HMRC’s Making Tax Digital systems. During the early part of 2017 mTrio had not yet scoped out a workflow for quarterly reporting"
What info does HMRC require from PM software, timesheets, billing?

Interesting, would like to hear more about the findings.
There wasn't much said on workflow/ deadline managment or MTD transition but presume the panelists looked at this.
Also would like to have heard about Xero PM or Logical Office .

Great post Finola.
Just interested in your view in what part software should play in all of this.
Is it the horse or the rider?
In other words, do you need to have good processes in place first and then consider whether your software is up to it. Or can you opt for new software that is supposed to do what you are looking for in the hope that the good working processes will magically follow suit?

Very interesting. Is it true that its not sensible to run cloud products on a hosted server?
If so, will that make hosted server providers no longer relevant?

Perhaps this is a good comparison
16 column analysis books -> spreadsheets -> online mobile software
retro telephones -> dumbphones -> smartphones
If the wave of technology change is going to sweep over our industry as it is many others, one needs to adapt surely?
