Its been a bit of a journey this end figuring out what is best for my business.
Having given this much thought, I have had a turn around. I been feeling my direction is being dictated by the HMRC & accountancy industry preferences. But not what's best for me or my business.
The spreadsheet you built is a wonderful asset, it provides me with flexibly, privacy and ease of use and it does not force me into a rabbit hole where the future is dictated by software providers. As the old saying goes “if its not broken, then why fix it”.
I recognise you have saved me significant sums in not having to sign up to Xero etc. Its not about the cost at all, your goodwill has been extended beyond the call of duty, my spreadsheet has become one of those jobs you do for me that becomes endless - thank you.
