I recently started my own accounting practice, providing professional accounting, tax and related services.
I am looking at purchasing software to simplify the tasks surrounding the drafting of financial statements. I will also probably be doing independent reviews once the new Companies' Act become effective (I don't see my practice doing audits soon...)
I use Pastel and will also be drafting from Excel (as I won't have all my clients' books electronically).
I know Caseware is probably the strongest player in the market, but it is also pricey. Pastel Auditor is a safe option, as I like Pastel's products a lot and find them user friendly (there are also integration advantages in using the Pastel Auditor). Draftworx is relatively new...
Anyone wish to comment?
