PTP Autumn 2019 v19.3 Full Features
Our PTP Suite Autumn release version 19.3 includes a new Accounts Production format for Community Interest Companies (CICs). Also included are solutions to issues reported in earlier releases of Tax Platform.
PTP Accounts Production
Annual Community Interest Company (CICs) Report and Accounts
It is now possible to generate accounts for Community Interest Companies. These will include the CIC34 form to submit alongside the financial statements. Accounts follow the same format as those prepared for standard limited companies with the option of including the additional CIC34 form either in simplified or detailed layout as required.
Importing GP accounting data from KashFlow
KashFlow recently introduced a new chart of accounts specifically aimed at doctors (GPs). To ensure Accounts Production stays fully integrated with KashFlow, it is now possible to import the trial balance of your doctor clients straight into Accounts Production and amend any mapping to allow for fast imports.
Automatic roll forward of Data Screen
When creating your next post file you will now benefit from the Data Screens automatically being rolled forward as part of the process, ensuring key disclosure automatically remains from one period to the next.
PTP Accounts Production has been updated for all the latest legislative changes including:
- Academies Accounts Direction 2018/19
- Updates to Academies, to accommodate the recently released Academies Accounts Direction 2018-19.
