Feedback from users who submitted their VAT form!

"Easy to setup and to link to our existing spreadsheets." "Liked the fact that it is free, and that we could link to our own spreadsheets easily to extract the data. We are a small retail outlet, we do not raise invoices, or have a payroll so accounting packages do not meet our needs and would lead to unnecessary expense. " “We can continue using our excel systems, and do not have to duplicate everything into a thirdparty software like quickbooks or xero. Also it's a free plugin so is very convenient.” DataDear MTD users
