KashFlow is a cloud-based accounting solution that caters to businesses of all sizes. Features include invoicing, estimation, credit control, accounting, purchase management, payroll and reporting.
Users can create invoices and receive email alerts when a payment is due. It also manages credit by sending automatic reminder letters to debtors. Quotations and estimates can be turned into invoices once the customer accepts them. KashFlow can graphically represent financial data such as balance sheets, creditors and debtors, customer history reports, trial balance and transactions.
KashFlow can automate recurring purchases and alert suppliers on payment. Bank accounts can be linked to the software and continuously monitored. The system also helps users file VAT returns directly to HMRC and create a journal through a year-end report.
KashFlow can be integrated with a customer relationship management (CRM) system, as well as e-commerce, email programs, payment processors, payroll software and inventory management software.

Kashflow has been a life-saver for me and my business; I do not have the time to learn how to book keep properly or run a Payroll. It means I can focus on the aspects of my business that I need to develop and give less time to admin.
It does what it says on the tin. So, it will run your payroll for you, tracking Tax & NI, produce P45s/P60s and submit data to the Government. It basically does everything you'd expect a payroll software to do. Payroll is complicated and KashFlow Payroll does its best to simplify this fr you; actually, I could not run my business without it.
The biggest annoyance is that you have to login to it separately from the main KashFlow program. Whilst it integrates the two at a data level really well, I don't understand why I cannot click seamlessly between the two.
Also, I think it lacks some features:
- I'd like it to handle and submit P11D forms
- It'd be nice if it integrated more tightly with Government so as well as submitting it also, showed me my tax balance owed. That would be a nice feature.
- Fixing a payroll mistake is a bit cumbersome as you have to roll back any intervening weeks. It'd nice if there was a simple tool for this.

I find Kashflow a mixed bag. In some ways, it's a good system and works well when everything is perfect. If you suddenly need to change something, however, prepare to get frustrated (no doubt you will at some point and good luck not messing your accounts up!).
Charging for their basic tutorials on how to use the software to avoid messing things up will cost you on top of the monthly subscription you're paying. This reason alone, I feel their not customer centric and am personally moving to another system due to this.
Kashflow can generate some nice reports and it looks fairly appealing.
Straight forward to set up in some ways.
Support is ok, can be a mixed bag.
A bit un-intuitive, unable to open links in new windows for some things which mean you have to keep re-running a report to work through each item in a list rather than quickly skip forwards and backward (Kashflow also forgets which dates you had selected so you have to re-select both dates every time!).
Unclear in places
Tutorials to learn the software are paid for those who are already subscribed, this is unforgivable. What kind of company charges their subscription paying customers to learn the software they pay for??
Kashflow feels like a strange mix between last gen software (and the frustrations that came with it) along with new gen (clean-ish interface). The whole package doesn't feel polished or finished.
Things like importing bank files will lead to duplicates without warning, Kashflow won't bother to check if any items are dupes. There goes the rest of your month manually removing all the duplicate items! Support will say it can only be done manually, can you tell it happened to me?
Make sure it's right for you, it's not bad - in fact there are lots of things to like but overall I'd look into other options before making a concrete decision on Kashflow. The whole paying to get access to their tutorials was the final straw for me.
