Solar Accounts is delighted to launch its new accounting software package designed for self-employed individuals and small businesses in the UK.

As an individual running a busy business finding accessible and relevant accounting software can be difficult. Many of the accounting packages on the market cater for small to large enterprises and require a great deal of accounting knowledge to understand and use. Not only this, but they can cost a pretty penny too.

Solar Accounts has released its back-to-basics software to make keeping accounts as easy as 1,2,3. This simple-to-use software is already gaining in popularity due to its ease-of-use.

Self-employed people across the UK are taking advantage of the many benefits of Solar Accounts. There's no need to sign up to a monthly or annual subscription. The software package is downloaded directly to your computer and for one initial payment it's yours for life. Users even get a free upgrade if a new version of Solar Accounts is released within six months of their purchase.
Your data will remain completely secure as it's only stored on your computer. You don't even need to be connected to the internet to work on your accounts.

Solar Accounts is simple to navigate and fast to set up. There's no need to study bookkeeping or read a big manual - all you need to do is start entering invoices and report your profit. The comprehensive Help section with clear explanations and screenshots means that Solar Accounts is extremely user friendly too.

With Solar Accounts it's simple to:

* Set up your business accounts - it typically takes about five minutes
* Create professional-looking invoices - incorporating your company logo
* Access up-to-date information and advice on issues such as PayPal payments and Flat Rate VAT
* Complete VAT returns - the step-by-step VAT guide will compute your VAT return for you
* Correct mistakes - unlike many other accounting packages, Solar Accounts has a simple 'Undo' feature
* Produce accountant-friendly reports such as Balance Sheets and Profit and Loss reports
* Export data to spreadsheet files which can be imported into SAGE

During public testing the feedback from users has been extremely positive. Deb Callaghan from bookkeeping and payroll specialists, Helping Hands Business Services, has already switched to Solar Accounts. She said: 'I am very impressed with Solar Accounts. I am going freelance and am planning on using this package for most of my customers.'

Mark McLaren, Managing Director and founder of Solar Accounts explains the motives behind the company's set-up: 'Back in 2005 I was a self-employed IT consultant. I was frustrated with the existing software accounting packages available for people like me.
The software that was available was complicated and clearly aimed at accountants or largish businesses. It was also expensive. I decided to develop a simple accounting package that was accessible and simple to use.'

Solar Accounts has been delighted with its success. Mark says: 'The software has been tested and used by over a thousand people so far and the feedback has been fantastic. It's great to hear that people enjoy using the product and that it's helping individuals simplify their finances.'

Solar Accounts offers a no obligation 30-day trial with full software functionality. It is available to purchase for a one-off payment of £85 (including VAT). There are no further monthly or annual subscription charges.
