As an accountant, Sum-It’s Total Accounts is always my preferred program to recommend and in that time, I have got quite a high number of clients using it. For our clients moving from manual bookkeeping, which is a daunting task, Sum-It’s Total Accounts has been found to be easy to adapt to and to train for.
Although this is predominately a farming program it easily adapts to any other business and with the multi-business option it lends itself well when farming businesses may diversify.
Sum-It’s Total Farm Accounts software provides SIMPLIFIED book-keeping for all levels.Choose from either Cashbook or Full Accounts levels and both modules can either be run as stand-alone programs or will integrate seamlessly with the physical records in the Total Enterprise Modules.
It is fully compliant with HMRC's Making Tax Digital On-Line VAT Submission system.

Starter Accounts Module
Total Starter Accounts is designed as a simple Cashbook system to be operated by anyone without an in-depth knowledge of accountancy.
All standard analysis headings can be customised by you to suit your own business requirements, then by simply entering all paid invoices and receipts onto the program throughout the year, all the necessary reporting is done for you.
VAT Returns are automatically prepared and submitted on-line, Bank Accounts can be easily reconciled and Cash-Flows can be generated for the Bank Manager. Basic Enterprise Costings reports will also identify Gross Margins and Year-End Reports can be output on paper or disk for your Accountant to audit.
Should you wish to upgrade to the Standard level, this can be done at any time, without needing to re-enter any data.

Standard Accounts Module
Total Standard Accounts includes all Starter Accounts facilities but goes further to full Double-Entry Accounts level.
This enables you to input invoices BEFORE you need to pay them and then you can view your current debtors and creditors at any time to identify which invoices are outstanding.
Total Standard Accounts provides a lot more functionality to minimise the repetitive aspects of “doing the books”, including automatic bank reconciliation (based on online banking CSV files), automatic standing order processing and Statement/Remittance Note/Label generation.
With this level of the software you also get more detailed reporting on cost centres such as farm enterprises or individual machinery and properties, analysing the management data down to cost per hectare or per animal or any specified unit you wish to set up.
Total Standard Accounts P&L and Balance Sheet reports can be tailored to mirror your Accountant’s layout. Asset Depreciation can also be set to calculate automatically right through the year.
Detailed budgets can be created over any timeframe, be it one year or several, on a single budget, to automatically compare against your actual accounts data at any time. Full comments can be input against planned figures to qualify their existence. The bank interest on the overdraft can also be set to calculate automatically too.
All Total Standard Accounts reports can be easily exported into Excel, CSV, TXT and PDF formats.
