    I applied for the second one. I’m not a lender and I didn’t want a credit account. I use Taxfiler to file accounts, CT and self assessments. I use CH for confirmation statements and pay by card at the time.

    How is about Xero bookkeeping software ?

    I think with bookkeeping software try them to see which you prefer, they usually have a 30 day free trial. For me, my favourite is Freeagent, it’s easy to use, has a brilliant knowledge hub with loads of info and the customer service is excellent. Second choice is Quickbooks, the language is American but I find it easy to use, the downside the help section and customer not so good. Xero, I know it’s popular but I just dislike and avoid. The help and customer service is poor. This is just my opinion, so would recommend you try them all before you commit.

    Already I have experience with Xero and trial experience with QB. I am looking cheap software for small clients. I have never used Freeagent. I will try .

    If the clients have a business bank account with NatWest, Royal Bank or Mettle, Freeagent is free.
