Read on for details


FEW farmers enjoy spending time in the office and fewer still would name book-keeping as their leisure activity of choice. But just suppose you could hire a completely infallible full-time book-keeper for less than £1/week.

Suppose as well that this book-keeper needed only the briefest of facts to maintain perfect business books and could tell you – in seconds – any figure you wanted.

Such a thing exists, claims Horsham, West Sussex firm Dosh Software, in the form of its DO$H Cashbook software.

DO$H has also been chosen by Lloyds Bank to help recruit business customers. "We chose DO$H Cashbook for all our new business clients after comparing it with most of the other small business accounts packages on the market," said John Spence, managing director of Lloyds Bank Business Banking.

DO$H Cashbook provides:

&#8226 A simple cashbook system, not another complicated accounts package.

&#8226 A complete record of all bank and cash receipts and payments month by month.

&#8226 An immediate summary of all receipts and payments analysed by category, with opening and closing balances.

&#8226 A cash-flow summary which shows the total cash generated by the business and how it was spent.

&#8226 A VAT account with all the information you need to make your VAT return each month or quarter.

&#8226 A bank reconciliation statement whenever you want.

&#8226 A single-action update – change one figure and DO$H automatically updates the entire cashbook.

&#8226 A printout of everything on normal A4. No need for spreadsheets.

&#8226 An ability to export reports as a file for use in many Windows applications, including Excel.

DO$H Cashbook works on any computer running the Windows operating system. You dont need to be a computer buff; just open the first screen and the fully illustrated handbook and youll be led through the uncomplicated program step by step.

To win one of 25 copies of DO$H Cashbook, each worth £75 + VAT, just put the list of six DO$H features in what you think is their best order of importance. Then fill in the coupon and send it to us. Competition closes on Mar 20, 1998.
