Free Sage accounting and bookkeeping software package for all Taxtile customersCalling all South London small businesses – claim your FREE* Sage accounts & bookkeeping package from Dulwich accountants Taxfile.

When you’re an active client of Taxfile, whether new or existing, we can supply you with your own Sage accounting package, free of charge*, and we’ll even help set it up for you! There are various packages to choose from and we’re happy to advise which is best for you and your small business. They’re great for anything from simple bookkeeping to full accounts handling, allowing easy record-keeping, bank reconciliation, the handling of VAT (including VAT returns), RTI submissions, automatic tax and National Insurance calculations and filing, and even Auto Enrolment communications for your employees. There is also a low-cost Payroll bolt-on option for those who would like to control their own payroll.

Sage cloud-based accounting and bookkeeping software packages

The Sage Software Packages:

  • Our free* ‘Sage One Cashbook’ package is great for bookkeeping and cash flow management — perfect for sole traders and cash-based businesses. It’s cloud-based so all you need is an internet connection and you can access your records from anywhere;
  • Our free* ‘Sage One Accounting’ package is better suited for small businesses, including start-ups, and includes the ability to manage finances, create quotations and invoices (including via a phone/tablet app), prepare VAT returns and even automatically stream your bank statement information straight into the package via an automatic ‘feed’ making it great for bank reconciliation and helping to make sure you account for all your business expenses. The integral bank feed even learns how to recognise regular transactions so the software is able to account for them in the best way;
  • Our ‘Sage One Payroll’ package is a low-cost bolt-on for the above, suitable for businesses who want to handle their own payroll (fully, or assisted by Taxfile) and who have 15 employees or less. It helps small businesses sort out payroll including payslips and tax calculations as well as helping them to stay within the law, keep up to date on financial regulations and even handle RTI submissions and employees’ Workplace Pension Auto-Enrolment communications. Nearly all small businesses with employees must implement such communications to inform employees of their rights in respect to Workplace Pension contributions, so such automation is a great feature and an immense time-saver.

All the software packages are secure, cloud-based so can be accessed from anywhere that has an internet connection, and have direct links to HMRC for easy filing, where appropriate, for things like tax returns, VAT returns, National Insurance and RTI etc. Calculation of what’s due to HMRC can be automated with the software and then paid and filed from the package. Such links and automation will become more and more useful and important into the future as Read more

Save time on your bookwork, at no extra cost

Save time on your bookwork, at no extra cost

At Taxfile we know that book work isn’t your top priority so we’re currently implementing a new system that will save you time on your book work (without costing you a penny extra) and also allow us to provide a better service to you.

Bankstream is a new service that, with your permission, enables us to securely collect electronic copies of your bank statements directly from your bank so as to make the analysis of your expenses and income much easier and faster. You continue to receive your statements as normal but no longer need to provide us with copies of them.  Bankstream does not give us access to your banking account so doesn’t give us the ability to create, amend or affect transactions on your account (no passwords or PINs will ever be requested from you — it’s completely safe). It simply gives us an additional electronic copy of your historical bank transactions so as to make accounting analysis easier and faster.

Bankstream

The Bankstream service itself is FREE to Taxfile customers (we absorb the cost). If you are interested in spending less time on your book work, ask us for a Bankstream Authority Form. Call 0208 761 8000 or find out more here.

Beat the price increase

Save Money — Beat the December Price Increase!

Save money on your accounting - act fast!If you are the director of a Limited company, in a partnership or are self-employed, your personal tax return is due on 31 January 2015. You are strongly advised to supply your records, bank statements, receipts etc. to our Dulwich office in South London as soon as possible, please, so that you are not caught in a last-minute rush — Taxfile has several hundred tax returns to complete, so the earlier the better. Some limited company ‘year end’ accounts will also fall due on 31 December 2014 or 31 January 2015. For those businesses, it’s exactly the same message — time is of the essence.

As an added incentive, if you get your accounting records to Taxfile before 1st December, you will beat the December price rise. Taxfile has held its prices for several years now and Read more
