Digita Co Tax Pro

Richard Norton had been a long-standing user of Digita Personal, Business and Trust Tax when he acquired Digita Corporation and Deferred Tax in September 2001.

He said: "Having used Digita Personal, Business and Trust Tax for many years, I welcomed the introduction of Digita Corporation and Deferred Tax. The new product had similar characteristics in that it is intuitive and easy to learn how to use the programmes. The changes over the years did not create any major learning difficulties. In addition, the excellent support provided by Digita quickly solved any problems encountered. They are very professional and responsive and always seem to know all the answers.

"Subsequent refinements in new versions issued, enhanced the product beyond being a basic accountancy tool. The fixed asset reconciliation and capital allowances computation are particularly useful, and the general feel of the product is very user-friendly."

"We have a relatively modest company corporation tax computation requirement, but Digita Corporation and Deferred Tax has certainly made life considerably easier. Producing returns and computations is infinitely more efficient when simultaneously keeping a permanent record, with the ability to cross-reference to earlier years, all in the same place."

"We also use Digita Electronic Forms, which is extremely useful, allowing us to fill in the appropriate forms for the Revenue, Companies House etc. on screen, and using a single programme."

"Visually, the reports Digita products produce are very pleasing and easy to interpret for clients."
