We anticipate that Webarchitects will need to register for VAT in 2019, currently we are using InvoicePlane and it has served us well for the last few years, it is Free software you can self-host and it produces nice looking invoices and supports lots of payment gateways and has a simple to use admin interface.
So we believe we have roughly three options:
- Develop some code that can pull data from the InvoicePlane database and submit it to the MTD VAT API.
- Write a plugin and user interface for the Kill Bill server.
- Switch to a non-free software system.
I believe, but might be mistaken, that the CoTech VAT registered co-ops all use non-free invoicing software (option 3. above). This isn’t our first choice but in order to make a decision between these three options we could do with some more information about option 3. (for more background detail see the thread on the Webarchitects members forum).
Could the VAT registered co-ops say what commercial invoicing software they are using and how much it costs and what they think of it?
