I have been using it since March.
In short, I greatly prefer it to using spreadsheets and debating stuff with accountants.
It gives me clarity on how all my transaction should be treated.
For example, drop down lists of options that are arcane knowledge I could not be bothered to even know exist before.
It keeps running totals of tax liabilities too.
It submits VAT on a couple of a button clicks - something you must use software for now anyway.
Used it once already to submit a corporation tax return (CT600).
They keep the software up to date with tax changes.
In fact, I have already benefited by much more than the cost of it from temporary tax benefits that it pointed out on capex as we came out of the lockdowns.
Also it is fast, so trying things out to understand it does not feel like so much of a chore.
At the cost of a little time invested in learning how to use it, it has saved me money and time.
You will need to understand a little more about accounting than if you use a spreadsheet and accountant, but I think you are going to end up being forced to do use software eventually, so better now.
