    We use SAGE 200 and I would recommend it, it's user friendly.

    Every Accounting Software has strengths and weakness. Therefore, you should choose right software to meet your business requirements.

    According to my experience, Xero Software is good for Small Size company like Service Industries while QNE Accounting Software and Sage are good for bigger size companies such as Trading and Manufacturing Industries. Moreover, you can check their features and listen their customers stories in their websites to make the right decision.

    Nowadays, Cloud Accounting Software are more popular than On-premise software but you should consider your budget for long-term.

    As all have said before, plenty out there.

    Xero and Quickbook offer some great support. There user-friendly if you want to start getting you clients to do some of the work

    They tap into Apps which can automate and make life easier Autoentry/Ebay/shopify/paypal etc etc

    Xero are increasingly biting into market leader Sage but there are all pretty good, try a few and use what works best for you - most offer free trials for a limited time.

    Well we use VT+ in-house, but also QBO, Xero, Kashflow, SageOne, Freeagent, and Clearbooks (and possibly one or two others but much less frequently...)

    In terms of how quickly I've picked them each up and how easy I personally find each to use, I'd say the (subjectively, naturally) best ones imho are Xero and QBO.

    Although at the end of the day, I actually prefer to use VT+. Only downside there is the client has no visibility on anything being recorded; they just have to give us the books and we draw up the accounts and send them out to the client. I doubt VT will ever create an online cloud version though, given how many cloud accounting software packages there already are (including all the ones I've listed above)
