Sharp-aX Takes MTD – Making Tax Digital Head on but, is it enough?

Sharp aX Takes MTD

This year will ensure that all our customers are submitting their VAT returns digitally by 6 April 2019 in good time and without stress.

However, in anticipation of HMRC compulsory digital management accounts submissions, it is also our intention to ensure that their computer system accounts are in line with companies house records.  Moreover, that their management accounts are produced and reconciled on a monthly basis.

Some of you might suggest that – this is normal and “so what”  Others of you reading this will recognise, even the best of us, produce monthly management accounts but may leave our accountants to “reconcile and tidy up” at year end.

To produce regular monthly reconciled management accounts will be alien to some companies  who still rely heavily on their accountants for anything to do with a nominal account.   Our plan this year is to help our customers become more self-sufficient and to save on accountancy costs by sending “reconciled accounts” to their accountants via excel for approval.

Our management reporting is simple and requires little training to reconcile bank accounts, VAT, payroll and similar and our support team is always at the end of a phone line to help.

The benefits  are legion  helping  companies to recognise their gross and net profit swings and to be in control – and all at the press of a “Sharp-aX button”.

Customer Feedback

"The installation has gone very well, and it has saved us a lot of time and made us more efficient especially on the sales desk. We plan to grow the system over the next few years as the company grows"

Mark Slater, Manager
M&S Distributors

"I have worked closely with the Sharp-Ax Web Development Team for more than 4 years now. When we first started working together, I was incredibly green and had little knowledge of how to go about creating a website.

Sharp-Ax were incredibly patient and helped me through the early stages, quickly earning my trust and respect.

Throughout the process they have come up with some truly innovative solutions to tasks I have set and have worked with me to achieve a platform that I am very happy with.

I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone that is looking to either start a website from scratch or are looking to move their business. It sounds corny Jean, Manish and the rest of the team do actually prioritise the customer experience, which in this day and age is refreshing"

Skilled, reliable, and excellent customer care

"I've been working closely with the web team at Sharp Ax now for over two years, and during that time they have always been thoroughly professional, reliable and most importantly, very good at what they do.

Our site has gone through strength to strength since we went live around 18 months ago, and it has now become a vital part of our business. We regularly receive glowing compliments about the layout and usability of our website from customers and suppliers, and while I would love to be able to take the credit for it, this is largely down to the website template and CMS, which is simple and easy to use.

As with all tech installations you may get the odd hiccup or something may not integrate seamlessly with your own system at first, but the best thing about Sharp Ax is that any problem is fixed quickly and with the minimum of fuss. It is clear that they prioritise customer satisfaction, which is refreshing to see from a tech company.

I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone and I look forward to continuing a strong working relationship moving forward"

"We had a big increase in our daily workload as we set up the new system. Our software problems proved to be minimal though and Sharp-aX came to our aid whenever required, so we were able to move forward with total confidence"

Dave Mansfield, Senior Systems and Network Administrator
Apex Grange Ltd

"We wanted to set the company up for the next 15 years with a totally modern Microsoft windows system that has everything we need and all the features that we will need as we grow, and is easy to use. Already it is like having another member of staff and we have all the daily knowledge we need at our fingertips. The sales order processing is splendid"

Simon Carter, Company Manager
Carter Mason Electrical Ltd

"I've looked at different systems and picked Sharp-Ax from Sharp-aX Computer Systems, because it used all modern windows techniques and was by far the best I saw; they are very experienced in electrical wholesalers systems and while they are a large software house which is reassuring, you are still treated as important, whatever size you are"
