Do you use an HMRC suggested record keeping phone app? 1


Now we have started a new tax year why not use a phone application to keep track of income and receipts? HMRC suggest the following:

Software supplier Product Platform
Forbes Computer Systems Ltd (Opens new window) Forbes Receipt Keeper Android
FreeAgent Central Ltd (Opens new window) Earnest iPhone, iPod touch, iPad
Immagini Ltd (Opens new window) ZipZipBooks Android
Intuit (Opens new window) MyBizTracker iOS (iPhone, iPod touch)
Mr Tax Software Ltd (Opens new window) Text 2 Save Tax Android.
Quick File Ltd (Opens new window) Quick File All – free web-based application
Sage (Opens new window) Sage Record Keeper iPhone, iPad iOS
123 Tax (Opens new window) 123 Tax application Windows Phone

I have been trying out the Sage Record Keeper Mobile on my iPhone, its pretty good for free, here is an overview:

  • Record cash in and cash out
  • See your balances at a glance and track CIS deductions – Standard or Higher Rate
  • You can even take photos of your receipts – no longer worry about losing them- multiple photos if needed
  • Estimate the current year’s tax and refer back to previous ones (up to 6 years)
  • Quick links to record income and expenses in seconds
  • Enter details, specify type of payment used and add notes
  • Add and customise tags for transactions to group them into categories
  • Add several tags to each transaction
  • Search and filter by category, supplier / customer, amounts or other details
  • Backup your information using iCloud

For use outside of the app you can export all or just a selection of transactions and photos as CSV and image files. They’re automatically attached to an email for sharing with anyone.

So no excuses, use your phone and stay organised.
