An absolute godsend

It has massively reduced my admin time and made things like VAT a doddle.

PROS

Accounts portal just works, you don't need expensive training, just a good general understanding of accounting practice. The complete opposite of a system (S***) that made my life a misery in teh past.

CONS

I haven't really got into automatic reconciliation of statements or producing my invoices through AccountsPortal. Some simple walk through videos to introduce them to me would be useful.

Reason for choosing AccountsPortal

I didn't really want to go with a cloud solution, but a trail of AccountsPortal proved so easy to use compared to my previous experience of Sage, signing up was a no-brainer.

Great, easily useable, simple accounting package

I've used this for three organisations for several years and have recommended it to others, very good value for money and straightforward to use.

PROS

Easy to set up, easy to find way around, trouble free, covers everything needed for doing whole accounts for small businesses.

CONS

Can't say there's anything I don't like about it for what it does, but for larger organisations it misses some functionality provided by more expensive packages (being able to upload pdf invoices and populate from pdf invoices, completely live bank feeds for example)

Reason for choosing AccountsPortal

Cheaper! Much more functional than Sage.

Reasons for switching to AccountsPortal

Much quicker for inputting, reporting and sales invoicing. Much easier for year end accounts prep.

Accounts Portal review

I have had QB's & a few others but I will stay with AC.

PROS

Ease of use, updates are great too. As I run two businesses I found the ability to add another business very useful.

CONS

Quite often get an annoying error message saying error, when logging in but try again & you are in.

Reason for choosing AccountsPortal

Cost firstly, ease of use secondly & features thirdly.

Reasons for switching to AccountsPortal

QB updated & lost us thousands in invoicing, we contacted them but they never apologised or rectified their mistake, we had to get our accountant to restore the invoices manually. which cost us a lot of money.

Best bookkeeping/accounting software we've ever used

We needed an online solution so multiple people could enter orders and use the software. Accounts Portal is simple enough so that an "Accounting Dummy" like me can use it, and complete enough so that our Accountant can do his job. Did I mention that in addition to it being the best for our purposes, it is also the least expensive. I wouldn't hesitate to pay twice as much for it.

PROS

We spent 3 years searching for bookkeeping software that would suit our needs. Everything else came up short, and many of them were too expensive to justify for our needs. Then we found Accounts Portal in 2014 and haven't looked back. It fulfills all of our needs and more. Any of us can sign on and enter a new order or look up bank balances or anything else we need to do. There is something else even better than the software: The service. On the rare occasions I need help (maybe once a year) I get the answers and help that I need quickly, in ways that are easy for a non-accountant to understand and implement.

CONS

Central United States is 6 hours away from the UK, so tomorrow comes earlier, so when we get an order in the evening I have to remember to set the date back one day.

Reason for choosing AccountsPortal

AP has the features we need without paying more money. We appreciate when companies are honest with us and tell us what we can expect - and then deliver on their promises. AP has been honest with us, and has never asked for any more money beyond the modest monthly subscription.

Reasons for switching to AccountsPortal

We didn't like QuickBooks business practices at all, or the company that owns it.
