I currently use Sage Accounts Production and have done for last 12 years! Not suitable for MTD for VAT and im shopping around.
Sage are offering software to trial balance with MTD for VAT on it buts its coming in at a min of £77.98 a month + VAT plus i would still need to keep my existing subscription for year end accounts!!
Anybody getting better prices for software or maybe already using software they can recommend.
All help appreciated!!
I currently only have 9 VAT clients but im aware of 4 others who do their own VAT and may decide to bring it to my office instead.
I used to love Sage too! Nearly all my current clients are on Xero now, I have one on QBO. I have done a few accounts migrations into Xero since starting work again last year. Both Xero and QBO offer free advisor certifications and MTD material.
It took me around four hours to do the basic Xero certification and was all free. They also offer accountants/bookkeepers a free account for themselves. I have spent almost nothing on Xero and I have multiple clients using it. The subscription pricing is really good for clients.
Xero also offer a deal where you can buy 25 subscriptions for £25 per month for advisors. This means you could offer it as part of a package deal to your client or absorb the cost yourself.
I used to use Sage exclusively and had a certain level of brand loyalty, but I have to say that Xero and QBO are very impressive in terms of functionality and pricing for the average small to medium sized business.
