    I've always been a fan of SJD's simple spreadsheet which is one reason I'm reluctant to leave. Dynamo for example don't give you any examples of what their software is like
    It was indeed a beautiful spreadsheet.....

    Technically it's not their software. You are getting a subscription to FA which appears to be the go to solution at the moment.

    As has been said you can sign up for a free trial but IMO that's overkill. FA is the way to go which has been said many times on here and particularly in threads like this one.

    If the above link and other feedback still isn't enough for you to make a decision I don't know what is.

    I'm not sure it's overkill - some people don't like FA and would prefer something else instead, whether that's Sage, Xero, third party portal, or a spreadsheet.

    I work with someone who raves about how good Crunch is, for example, and how it works perfectly for what he needs, but when I did the free trial I couldn't get it to work. I was perfectly happy with the InTouch portal for a long long time because it worked for me - my reasons for moving to a FreeAgent accountant weren't connected to the software that they used.

    I did the FA free trial long before I moved accountant, so that if / when I wanted to move I knew what the software was like. Another advantage of doing the free trial is that you can have all your accounts properly set up in there in advance of moving to a different accountant - play around in your own space to get a feel for what it can do before making too many mistakes in the live environment (somehow I have an estimate that I can't delete in FA now because I hit the wrong button and accidentally did something daft).

    It's nice to have a sandbox environment to test these things in

    Each to their own but if the OP is coming from the spreadsheet it's a no brainer.

    You share the same address (not the Monaco one of course), so it's an obvious first stop.

    :-) I think you'd find that we wouldn't be very welcome there....

Oddly enough both InTouch and Nixon Williams have done exactly the same. I just wish there were more small to medium sized companies with the same approach.
    And now I have the new firm and aren't racing anymore, just imagine how good we are.... :-)
