    Just so you know this "software", nicely writting VB scripts, is not free.

    For the first year it is but then it is £1 a month for a tax payer. For an agent, such as you it is £1 per client, per month. Or £10 a month for unlimited clients.

      Hi Steve

      Thanks for that, I have to say though, even at £1 per month (after the first year) that is still a significantly cheaper deal than that which many other software houses have been offering for bridging software - yes I realise it is only a bit of clever Visual Basic programming but it still has had to satisfy HMRC's requirements too. When all around you are demanding sums well in excess of that I think I'd be more than happy to pay my £1 each month.

      I see you've posted elsewhere in the forums that there seems to be an issue with Excel Online and VitalTax? Perhaps a message to VitalTax could provide some clarity on that? IF you do get some feedback would be handy if you can share.

      Regards

      BTW, Pandle has now been confirmed as HMRC approved for being MTD compatible, so if you were looking at alternatives to Wave that's an option to consider (especially being just £5 per month).

    Thx for your message. You mind telling me what bridging software or wave replacement you recommend. Many thanks Peter

      Hi Peter

      For FREE bridging software I'm suggesting VitalTax, which you can get from their website, VitalTax.uk. Not used it myself but have looked at it and for me looks ideal for use with CSV/Excel downloads from Wave.

      For MTD compliant cloud based software that does many things that Wave does go for Pandle, at £5 a month it's neither here nor there. They are I believe currently on the HMRC list of working towards but they had said on their website that they have completed development and were just awaiting the formalities - that was about 2-3 weeks ago, been a little busy with tax returns to think to check for an update.
