There has been a lot going on behind the scenes at Clear Books this month. With new developers on board we will hopefully see new features rolling out very soon such as better invoice customisation and automatic Paypal imports. Here is a quick update for July.

VAT Return

Our VAT return report has changed. We now break down how each box of the VAT return is calculated by itemising the constituent transactions. The system also has a new input box called ‘VAT Treatment’. This only affects users invoicing internationally and has been introduced to better handle VAT.

Mass Update

When explaining your imported bank statement use the Mass Update button to update all similar transactions in one go. This will speed up the time it takes to explain your imported bank statement.

Dividend Vouchers

We have introduced automatic dividend vouchers for limited companies.

CIS Online Filing

Following on from our online VAT filing, our first few CIS returns have been successfully submitted online from Clear Books to HMRC.

User Backups

We have disabled our emailed user backups for a number of reasons. Of course we still continue to store backups of your data internally, but in terms of an emailed personal backup we will be implementing a new process in the future.

iPhone App

Progress continues with the iPhone app and we hope to have something to show next month.

Company News

This month we have taken on three new developers so a big welcome to Alpha, Ed and Matt.
