Abacus Accounts

Bookkeeping for the Apple Mac

Abacus Accounts is a double-entry bookkeeping application, suitable for any business/company accounts or for clubs, charities, personal accounts etc.. It is powerful, but easy to use. Various types of accounts can be set up, to suit your organisation. It can be used by VAT registered or non-registered businesses.
Please note that it does not currently have the option to connect to HMRC, as required by UK MTD VAT. However, it does allow for the exporting of VAT Return data, which can then be uploaded to HMRC using a 'bridging' application. See below for more information.

Selections are made using clearly labelled buttons or menu options, whilst transaction entries are made through popup panels, which present the user with the appropriate data fields.

It supports accounts for up to 10 companies/businesses, simultaneously.

You can also set up regular (monthly, quarterly, yearly etc.) payments/deposits from any bank account.You are also able to create and print (or email) customer invoices, using your own logo as a header.

The essential bookkeeping requirements are covered, such as viewing account registers, reconciling bank accounts, tracking customer/supplier balances, VAT (or GST, HST etc.), if required, and end of year reports (see below).

Should you have specific requirements or questions, please contact us, using the link below.

The program is flexible enough to be used worldwide, as VAT / GST / HST / Tax rates can be customised. However, it was designed with the aim of being very quick and easy to use. If you are running a business and want to do your own bookkeeping, this program should meet your requirements.

Although it helps to have some previous bookkeeping experience, a detailed description of how to use the application is included in the help pages.

Technical support is also available by email, free of charge.

In order to meet the requirements of MTD VAT, in the UK, a VAT Return export facility has been added.

This allows the user to export the VAT figures to a file, which can be transmitted digitally to HMRC by a third-party 'bridging' application.

One such application is MTDfVAT, by Digital Filing Solutions Ltd. The interface to this software has been tested and confirmed to work correctly.

For more information on this 'bridging' application, please go to www.mtdfvat.co.uk or click the Image (to the right).
