5 reasons to choose Surf Accounts Production

When it comes to creating financial statements to submit to the CRO, you need to ensure they are compliant. If your accounts fail to comply with the requirements, they will be rejected by the CRO. To make sure you meet the requirements whilst working efficiently, you should use an accounts production software which is easy-to-use, saves you time, and can improve the accuracy of your service. Surf Accounts Production is the software which can do all this, and more.

Here are 5 reasons you should choose Surf Accounts Production:


1. Cloud-based

As a cloud accounts production software, Surf can provide you with many benefits, such as the ability to work remotely. As it is cloud based, you can access, edit and share data via the internet, meaning you no longer have to rely on physical servers and hard drives. The cloud is also extremely secure, thanks to its use of encryption, so you can rest assured your data is protected. By using a cloud-based software, you can do all the work you could in the office, from anywhere with an internet connection.


2. Compliance

Surf Accounts Production is the number one software on the market when it comes to compliance. This is due to a number of reasons:

  • We have a dedicated compliance team in place, who’s sole responsibility is to ensure that the accounts you create are compliant with all legislation.
  • All the formats we provide are FRS 102 Section 1A and FRS 105 compliant, while dual jurisdiction ROI/UK and NI compliant versions are available.
  • All compliance updates are done automatically, in the background. This means you don’t have to waste time sitting through system installations or system re-starts.
  • Surf Accounts Production has been designed to allow you to edit financial statements 'on the fly,'. Once you've produced the accounts, you can make revisions without ever having to leave the document. To see how our ‘on the fly compliance function works, click here.


3. Tailored entity types

Surf Accounts Production offers 9 entity types for creating financial statements, which is more than any other accounts production software on the market. Our development team are also working on adding to these in the future. In comparison, some accounts production software providers offer a single financial statement template, which then must be manually edited to suit the client’s needs. With Surf, you can reduce the time you spend editing templates as you simply select the client’s entity type upon creation.

The financial statement formats which Surf Accounts Production currently provide are:

  • Company
  • Schools
  • Sole Trader
  • Farmer
  • Credit Union
  • Industrial & Provident Societies
  • Club
  • LLP
  • Partnership


4. E-signing

Surf Accounts Production’s electronic signature feature became the first of its kind in the accounts production software market. Our partnership with HelloSign allows you to request e-signatures for a range of different documents, track the status of the signature, and download the fully signed version to your PC. By allowing clients to sign documents digitally, you can send documents in seconds, complete tasks faster, and reduce costs associated with travel or having documents couriered.


5. Integration with Surf Accounts (and BrightPay)

Surf Accounts Production has direct API integration with our bookkeeping extension, Surf Accounts. This integration allows you to conduct all your year-end and bookkeeping work from the one platform, eliminating the need to switch between your accounts production and bookkeeping software.

Additionally, Surf Accounts has API integration with BrightPay Payroll Software, allowing you to seamlessly upload your payroll journals from BrightPay into the accounting software, which can be accessed by Surf Accounts Production users who also hold a bookkeeping licence.


Ultimately, Surf Accounts Production is packed full of accounts production features which can make creating financial statements a breeze. With time saving features such as automatic compliance, tailored entity types and electronic signatures, you can better allocate your time to improve your productivity.
