Good luck with your exams - sure you will be ok and pass no bother!
I have not moved to Solar online yet as I am waiting for the details of HMRC and their Making Tax Digital fiasco!
I would prefer to stay with Solar but there are a few things that need to be addressed first:
Currently you cannot use bank feeds
If you give client access to e.g. process their sales invoices they also have access to everything else - not happy about this as they could mess up the accounts (whether by design or accident!). Would prefer if they could only get access to the sales invoicing.
None of my clients currently do any of the bookkeeping as I do it all for them so I don't charge any extra for the use of software (mainly because as you know it was a one off cost and I have been using for 8+ years). Once we are 'forced' to use cloud version then clients will have to pay the extra monthly costs.
One thing is for sure - I will not be using Sage!
I am thinking about looking at Accounts Portal - when I have time - doh! what's that?
