What BTCSoftware says

Our AP Solution delivers simple and intuitive accounts production software that makes the completion of year-end annual accounts easy.

It has been developed in consultation with accountants and integrates seamlessly with BTCSoftware products for practice management, corporation tax and self-assessment requirements.

It also links with many bookkeeping products including Xero, QuickBooks, Reckon One, Clear Books, FreeAgent, Iris, KashFlow, SAGE and VT to make year-end compliance slicker, faster and easier.

The solution includes an incomplete records module. This enables the extended trial balance to be constructed from receipts, payments and transfers reconciled to bank statements.

Direct API links with Xero, Quickbooks, FreeAgent and Reckon One provide automatic two way journal adjustments back into the bookkeeping software.

What AccountingWEB says

The accounts production module was the final piece in the BTCSoftware jigsaw when it was first introduced in 2015 and has become an integral part of this year’s Accounting Excellence Software Award-winning practice suite.

Cloud accounting and the advent of Making Tax Digital have made life difficult for tax and practice software developers, but BTCSoftware has maintained its focus on creating technically solid, dependable tools that do the things practitioners need. It has also recognised the shift towards online processing and is using its MTD-focused online filing Hub as a platform for evolving its software into the cloud era.

It's a tricky balancing act, but the consistently positive customer feedback suggests that BTCSoftware is making steady progress on this transition.
