I need some accounting software that will do all of the normal accounting things (vat return etc) but also break down various 'projects'. We sell vehicles and need records of how much has been spent on each. SAGE claimed to do this but there was no way of seeing each individual project and the expenses against it as they were all muddled together. Is there anything out there that would this? Thank you!

We just switched from Sage to Quick books Enterprise. I would recommend that. They have fields where you can apply customers and vendors to specific jobs.

I've been using Quickbooks for 20 years. The 2016 version still does not work with my bank for online banking. It will as soon as my bank updates its software.

QuickBooks is pretty good. I have used it for my audits and book keeping services and it helps you keep track of individual projects. You could even look at accounting firms that specialize in accoutnign software solutions to help you move to Quick Books. This could be a one time thing wherein they help you set up and migrate and then you can go about your business.

KashFlow is also pretty good. But as mentioned by Gilbert, you could even look at accounting firms that specialize in accounting software solutions as this is what we do for our local clients.

I would recommend QuickBooks software. It gives you a better control on the payroll, time and expense items with a customized reporting for a project.

Hi LL78!
Transitioning can be difficult but your requests don't sound too difficult to find software for. The software I use is called Ledgersync and all transactions are automatic so you would be able to see all the fine details such as you have described. It also means less work when bookkeeping - hurrah! If you're unsure if it has the right features for what you're needing, be sure to book a demo so you can answer your own question and give it a try before committing.
Good luck!

Well in my own opinion i believe how you customised your chart of account really matters. Most of the time its not the software but how you build you chart of account determines the result you get. I will recommend Sage Peachtree products, such product have proved to be more friendly .

Hi, given you're best informed as to your needs I would approach each of the companies that have been recommended to you and ask what they can offer you. Frankly I think Sage is completely outdated. I've heard good things about Xero but know little about Quickbooks so can't comment on them. Good luck if you haven't already found a vendor!

All votes for Quickbooks. Of course it is best for your requirements.
