A great bit of software for anyone running a chauffeur, taxi or garage related business is Sage 50 Accounts. It’s what I’ve been using for years, so thought I would just say a few words about it, that is of course assuming that anyone reads this anyway.
The reason I like it is because it’s just simply so easy for absolutely anyone to learn how to use it, the interface is incredibly simple with great big buttons which are clearly marked, so when I want to go and enter an invoice from a particular supplier, I just click on my suppliers button, then select who it’s from and enter an invoice against them.
Likewise doing my bank reconciliation is pretty easy too as I can upload an electronic version into the software, so there’s no re keying it, I just match up the transactions and OK them, well to be perfectly honest, when I say I, I actually mean the wife who does all the accounts if the truth be told. But if she didn’t do such a fine job I wouldn’t keep asking her would I? She even does out VAT returns, which is something which the accountant used to get paid for before we bought our own copy of sage 50, so it’s paid for itself in no time.
