What Software are you using?

Hi All.

I just wanted to find out what software you guys are using, I have had previous experience with Keytime (PC based) and really like the UI. I realise a lot of small traders/contractors, and even LTD's are starting to use cloud based (Xero and Kashflow to mention a few) and I know the number of people turning to these solutions will only grow so I wondered if the time was right to learn and implement a similar strategy in my new practice?

so the question is.... what do you guys use? and I guess why would you recommend it!

thanks
Mark

    I assume you are talking about bookkeeping software?
    I use VT as it makes it very easy to then produce accounts and it links well with my tax software (taxcalc). I have a couple of clients on Xero (not mad about the software but clients already had it), and I have just started on FreeAgent.
    If clients want to do their bookkeeping I find a cloud based solution is better than VT.
    There is so much choice now. I guess your choice will be down to your budget and what your clients already use.

    Hi Marie? thanks for the reply, what I'm looking for is a complete suite like keytime offer... not sure what xero offers for accountancy practices but it just seems like bookkeeping software with bolt ons....

    cheers

    Taxcalc does everything and is good value

    I like it too although I do not use the account production module. And it's not cloud based.

    The accounts production module is great, similar to Iris. I don't know of any practice software that is cloud based? I l know that Taxcalc are working on a cloud based version (as I imagine the others are).

    I don't think any of the main ones are in that case (Iris, Digita, CCH, Taxcalc, VT).
