It enabled me to file my taxes simply and painlessly in a very short time.
This program makes filing simple and painless- you input basic information and the hard work is done for you
The cost is somewhat high; also, due to its localization, obtaining live support can be tricky on occasion depending on time of day

Ease of use

I use this to record all my Herbalife sales and expenses, it is fast, and secure.
Highly recommended for Sole Traders & Small businesses.
Ease of use
None - Cannot find any faults with this software
Arithmo is a excellent tool for small business have used it for 3-4 years had no problems at all
Easy to use
Can be a little slow
Good system to help do just enough to manage my driving instruction business.
Online, when I can find a few minutes.
I need to be connected to internet - must be at home.
Good features and easy to use.
If I was being hyper-critical I suppose I would say the GUI could be a bit prettier. Nevertheless, it is well laid out and intuitive.
Very good package, easy to use.
Knowing that the information I put in is in the format my accountancy firm can use.
Find the Calendar irritating (it reverts to today's date all the time).
As somebody in my early seventies who has picked up how to use a computer as I go along I find this package indispensable. I did need some help to get accustomed to the system, not surprising in the circumstances.
I have found Arithmo to be a fairly good book keeping system, but feel that some of the functions are not very clearly explained, and not particularly intuitive. Some fuller explanations on the different applications would be useful, and a quicker response time when making queries would be advantageous.
Efficient, reasonably comprehensiv, good price
Response time very slow (usually 24hrs+) , Not enough explanation about some of the functions, FAQ's not at all useful
An easy to use package ideally suited to small businesses.
Easy to use and understand. The reports make it quick and easy to see how the business is doing.
Being an on-line package means no backups or updates to worry about.
Having used Arithmo for 1 year we are well impressed
Ease of use , simplicity
Could do with a few more features like producing a supplier remittance
Pleasant layout. Fairly intuitive. Has a basic feel, but that is deceptive. It produces really good reports, such as P&L and Balance sheet. It has a full audit trail.
The ETB for accountants is excellent.
It is easy to use for customers and the price is fantastic value. The support is excellent. The fact that we, as accountants can log on and use all facilities is very useful.
It has a few quirks, but it seems the new version will iron these out.
I wish it used the keyboard more. I love TAS Books for that. No mouse waving!
Clear and easy to use. Simple wording.
Easy to use. Simple and very inexpensive.
Easy to generate reports.
No specific way to collate mileage expenses.
You can add to but not delete headings.
Register for a webinar and you may or may not be contacted as promised!
Arithmo is very good value, user friendly and helps small businesses to keep track of their finances as part of the everyday routine. It also saves money on accountancy
You can use as many or as few of the features as you need for your purposes, and it is easy to adapt them to your own way of recording information ('clients' can become projects, for instance, so you can effectively create cost centres)
It would be great if you could automatically feed information through from income to expenditure rather than input everything twice to create new (clients/suppliers/projects) - sometimes you want to track income and expenditure for the same things
Find it exceedingly easy to use. I like the layout of the screen as every facility is accessible. It is logically presented.
The page gives you every facility of moving around the whole programme. If there is a problem with the page you are on down the right hand side there are easily understood directions of how to use that particular page.
On the contrary, I do not have any complaints and love using it.
Compared to many other accounting systems i have used and viewed, this is by far the easiest system to use. As a novive in accounting systems i was able to use it with ease from day one.
Tha advantage of having no software to download, install, configure and support on my desktop makes this a BIG PLUS for me as my system is short on memory so having installed and supported at a central point is the way to go!
Ease of use everything about it is designed for simplicity, without looing any critical features.
When i want to make a change to a statment i am so used to using a right mouse click, not a left click.
I know i am being a little pissy about this but it is the only thing that i can say i mildly dislike.
But it aint a big issue.
Excellent, I have not found a problem with the software and it fulfills all of my current accounting needs.
Easy to use
Backs up data
Prompts regular data entry
This is a simple accounting/book-keeping software for the smaller business. It allows you to keep your business books via an online app that you can access from any web browser no matter where you are located.
Its good for the sole trader right through to a VAT Registered Limited Company and its so cost effective its almost too good to be true.
On line app
Someone else takes care of system admin and maintenance.
Slightly confusing to get to grips with
Payment method defaults to cash
