I didn't expect you to go for the contractor work, but I can see the problems and having done firmware and software for years as an electronics Engineer I can see how the solutions should work with minor additions and copy and paste and tweak of existing code.
The information is almost all there, it just needs formatted in the same way that Companies house and HMRC ask for it.
This would be a massive time saver and one step closer to direct downloads of accounts to HMRC.
For a small business the only accounts that matter are the VAT and annual end of year accounts.
The rest of the accounts are day to day and don't even need accounts software.
I have found that Excel is still the most efficient day to day tool, and the downloading tool in clearbooks with the mass updates is an excellent system.
