Access the first to enable new audit file export

Access Accounting has claimed to be the first software company to include HM
Revenue & Customs Standard Audit File export facility.

The ability to export file, which is required as part of the controversial
BSI specification for accounting software, allows users to comply with VAT
requests from HMRC in a standard XML format.

Kevin Misselbrook, customer service director for Access, said the export
facility would enable businesses to keep electronic records ‘in a format
acceptable to HMRC’ for six years.

‘This new feature allows them to archive data in a standard format that is
non-software, or version, dependant,’ added Misselbrook.
