Web Portals and Accounts
There are lots of services out there which provide accounting solutions. We have worked on most of the platforms starting with early versions of Netsuite in 2007 through to the latest versions of Xero, Kashflow, Freeagent and others.
We have never found one which quite meets the exacting standards of accountants, though they are all valuable in helping small businesses keep track of things. Please do feel free to pick the one of your choice and we can work with that. To us, the portals are simply collation tools and we will continue to extract the required data which we then funnel through our dedicated desktop software for the production of statutory accounts and tax returns.
For those who are interested, we use VT Accounts and Acorah. You probably wouldn’t want to use them unless you were planning to run an accountancy practice!
