Documation, which offers AP, purchasing and invoice matching solutions, focuses on automating back office processes. “With many organisations putting process automation on their roadmap it is a natural progression for Documation to include e-invoicing,” said John Wallace, CEO at Documation.
“Our newly formed partnership with Pagero means we now offer the fully compliant package in line with all EU and global directives for mandatory issuing and storing of invoices.”

Sage has announced a series of free events across the UK, which will be taking place throughout June and July. The four-hour events will cover practice efficiency, Making Tax Digital action plans and the changes introduced to the setup of the Agent Services Accounts throughout five different sessions.
Sage has also announced additional workshops for accountants whose clients use Sage 50cloud Accounts and who want to do their own VAT submissions.
Locked transactions on Pandle
Pandle has updated its features to prevent clients from making changes to locked transactions, giving accountants control over who can unlock transactions after the set date has passed. When clients try to amend a transaction on the bookkeeping software, they’ll see a message suggesting them to contact their accountant.
Additionally, the company has added access to reports from their mobile app, including functions such as profit and loss, balance sheet, trial balance, cash flow and payables and receivables.

Autotrip revamps its web app
Mileage tracking app Autotrip has upgraded its system with automatic HMRC mileage rates based on engine size, fuel type and type of vehicle.
The solution, which claims to provide 100% accuracy in business mileage claims, works by analysing data from a tracker plugged into the users’ cars. Both users and businesses can then classify and review trips from the web app.
