What VT Final Accounts says

VT Final Accounts runs in Microsoft Excel and produces professionally formatted company, LLP, sole trader, and partnership accounts. A trial balance and up to 250 journals can be entered and a nominal report printed. A trial balance can also be imported from VT Transaction+, VT Cash Book and most other accounting packages. The company accounts include a corporation tax computation.

VT Final Accounts contains accounts templates and an add-in program. The add-in features enable many tasks to be automated.

Because of its ease of use and flexibility, VT Final Accounts appeals to a broad range of users such as freelance accountants, firms in practice and companies with just one set of accounts to prepare per year.

iXBRL files for attaching to a corporation tax return can be generated at the touch of a button (VT workbooks are pre-tagged), and VT Final Accounts can also be used to self tag any set of accounts or corporation tax computation in any Excel workbook.

The iXBRL accounts can be filed electronically with Companies House via the VT Filer application.

What AccountingWEB says

VT Final Accounts has led the accounts production field among small accountants for most of the past decade thanks to its low cost and compatibility with the accountant’s favourite tool, Microsoft Excel.

VT retains a loyal constituency but the spreadsheet foundation that has made it so popular is becoming less of a must-have since other developers have moved into its market, including cloud alternatives such as Taxfiler and Capium.
