What Capium says

The power of Capium is that we collate much of the data for the final accounts from our bookkeeping engine, or where necessary though external imports, and deliver features typically found in more expensive software.

Based on the accounts setup, Capium will assign the relevant notes and convert the accounts to iXBRL for electronic submission. The integrated system means that those acconts automatically flow into the corporation tax module.

Our vision is to simplify the practitioner’s life by eliminating mundane tasks. We continually seek user feedback to evolve the platform and have responded to these requests by overhauling the reporting aspects of our accounts production module in recent years.

2018 Roadmap

Reporting is a fundamental aspect of accounting and is an area we are looking to develop with deeper business analytics. The options will include management accounts at the push of a button from Capium, but also from uploads from other bookkeeping software.

The reports generated from this data will include cashflow analysis, profit breakdown and year on year comparatives displayed in graphical formats.

We have been listening to our customers and are working to support imports from non-Capium products including VT, QuickBooks Online, KashFlow and Xero.

Capium is involved with the MTD for VAT public beta and will be including bridging software for our bookkeeping system. As the digital tax project evolves, we will stay on top of any changes that may affect final accounts production.

What AccountingWEB says

While Capium can cater for those who want an online accounts production program, it also opens the door to a more holistic approach to small practice software. The developer has been making good progress with its online suite over the past year and this is reflected by increased ratings. In 2018, Capium established itself as a genuine cloud alternative to the desktop suites from BTCSoftware and TaxCalc.

Within the Accounting Excellence Softwre Awards accounts production survey, Capium increased its share of the sample. It was close to matching its two big rivals on functionality and, like category winner Taxfiler, challenging them ease of use and value for money.

Covering so many different functions has demanded a lot of internal focus and development work, but now that it has established its credibility in the marketplace, Capium is broadening its links to other bookkeeping tools and looking to adapt its workflows to Making Tax Digital.
