Hi there

I hope someone can help

I have a friend who has asked if i would do his book keeping for him and Vat returns (he will be paying for accountancy advice, but has kindly said that if i want the practice he is happy to let me loose on his books).

He is a contract engineer and is currently looking for a suitable accounting software .

Any ideas

Sorry for the limited info

    Does he need software? Could it be run on excel? That could be just as effective and a lot cheaper.

    Is he after just bookkeeping software or does he want to do more with it?

    A lot would depend on how many transactions we are talking about.
