What software would you recommend for accountants?

I've recently become self employed, offering accountancy, bookkeeping & payroll services. I've had a couple enquiries from small companies/ sole traders that wish to outsource their bookkeeping and/or payroll completely. I've only ever used Sage but any recommendations for software for this? i.e what software out there do you recommend that is tailored for this? Software that can cater for multiple clients? Any help at all would be appreciated

    There are lots of different softwares available but I think the most used are Quickbooks and Xero and if some clients already have software it is likely to be one of these

    I find quickbooks really hard to use. The 2 I would lean towards are Sage (probably the online version) and Xero. Although other ones to check out would be Kashflow (although reports can let them down) and FreeAgent. Sage and Xero both have payroll addons and I believe so does Kashflow. AutoEntry and Hubdoc are worth checking out for invoice and bank statement processing too.
