The client started designing the concept following the Chancellor’s MTD announcement in the Spring budget of 2015 that all small businesses would be required to submit their accounts online by using some cloud-based system from 2019. Other accounting programmes appeared to be too complicated, or difficult to use without a degree in accounting knowledge or at-least 'A Level' mathematics. How would small business owners cope with the move to online accounting?
Client then waited long time to find the right partner as all other software companies were quoting more than £100,000 and demanding at least 40% upfront which was a big commitment!
When we met Karen for the first time, I just asked one simple question that we’re ready to take your money and build you the software if you can explain the fact that there is number of cloud accounting solutions out there why one will subscribed to yours? Then Karen replied by saying that yes, there are cloud accounting software out there but they all are for accountants to use and I would like to create one which don’t talk accounting at all and can be used by trades people without an accounting jargon.
Dod-dle has been designed to be an easy to use and simple to understand website whilst providing outstanding bookkeeping and producing a complete set of accounts. It uses a cloud-based system which is expandable to any level to accommodate huge amount of data. The front-end is responsive which means it can be accessed from laptop, desktop, tablet or even smart phone and from anywhere and at any time.
The subscription based Dod-dle accounting system is very easy to use and simple to understand. This means that a lot of the clever stuff, such as working out the tax, or calculating percentages etc. goes-on in the background. All you have to do is to answer the few straightforward questions. Dod-dle don’t use any long-complicated words that require specialist knowledge and don’t need you to understand double entry (it’s an accounting term) and we make the whole process of keeping as simple as it possibly can be.
We are also working very closely with HMRC to ensure that when you are required to start filing your accounts online, Dod-dle will be there to do the job for you so that you don't have to worry.
We're proud to announce that Dod-dle accounting package is on HMRC’s website now under a recommended Simple Record Keeping Applications: Commercial Software Suppliers.
HMRC selected 20 companies from UK and we are one of them alongside Xero, Sage, KashFlow and Quick Books so it is a big achievement for a small company like us. Please click here to have a look on the list on HMRC’s website:
We are adding new features as we go along with the development and will be bringing out the other versions of Dod-dle very soon which will allow even more small businesses to get online and keep track of their business records with our easy to use and simple to understand accounting programme. There are total of 7 versions agreed and development will continue for next 3 years as presently we have successfully completed the 3rd version.
