Outstandingly simple to use


We have used the Simply Accounts package over many years, it is outstandingly simple to use with excellent customer support, which has been both personalised and responsive when we need them. I have no doubt that Simply Accounts has helped us significantly improve our operational efficiency over the years. It is a very good easy to use tool that can help you have a completely bespoke chart of accounts therefore allowing you to run both your management accounts and formal submissions in the same place ... easily. 5 Stars.

We are delighted by both the product and the company


Steinway & Sons have used Simply Accounts Bridging Software since the introduction of Making Tax Digital for VAT in 2019. We are delighted by both the product and the company. The software was easy to install and is easy to use. We were able to link easily with our existing spreadsheet application and dragging and dropping to the update fields is simple. Almost as simple as pressing the 'VAT Return' button, submitting the return to HMRC and obtaining a printed copy of the summary. Simply Accounts keep us informed of all relevant HMRC notifications and software upgrades - they provide an excellent product and an excellent service. We are very pleased with the solution which we chose.

Simply Accounts, is exactly that!


Simply Accounts, is exactly that! MTD made simple. We use this for all our smaller clients that currently don't require a full book keeping system, we use it for our larger clients that have expensive software where the MTD add on is highly priced and not justifiable and also the clients that slip through the net where they may only require one VAT return submission while either converting to an MTD software or urgent submissions during our onboarding process. The support we have received has been excellent, although it's rarely required as the software runs smoothly but when we've needed them, they've been on hand straight away and sorted the issue within the hour. This has been a fantastic tool within our Practice for the last 2 years and Simply Accounts are a very good company to deal with, I highly recommend them.

MTD Ready

Simply Accounts is now MTD ready and is listed on the HMRC website as MTD software for VAT that is available now. This involved coordinated testing between Simply Accounts and the HMRC MTD Team and, only after that can software be added to their site as being available.

As well as submitting your VAT return you can also retrieve VAT liabilities, payments and view previously submitted returns.
