Doing a friends self employed tax return

Hey guys, I'm AAT qualified and part qualified Cima. I've recently been approached by a friend who has gone self employed, he's asked my advice on doing his accounts . I've worked in industry for 10 years and am a management accountant, I know I'm capable of collating all his data, just wouldn't know where to start with advising him which package to purchase etc he only has access to a mac book pro so I can't even set him up with a simple excel spreadsheet (my original advice) any ideas? Thanks in advance Nic x

    I have a MAC and have Microsoft office for MAC. So it is possible for him to install that and then you could set him up with a spreadsheet like your original idea?

    There are lots of online bookkeeping programmes such as Xero, Freeagent, Accounts Portal, Clearbooks and more. We personally use Clearbooks as we feel it offers the best value for money.
