Earnings Tracker was originally designed to be used by UK-based contractors, and much of the accountaing and bookkeeping functionality in the current version is aimed at this group of users.
This does not mean, however, that the application can’t be used by anyone who simply wants a basic bookkeeping / accounting package, as any functionality that is not required can be ignored. For example, one of the features enables users to set up a VAT flat rate percentage to be used to calculate the amount of VAT payable. This is only of any significance to UK-based businesses that are registered to use the VAT flat rate scheme. If you are not one of these businesses, you can ignore the figures relating to the amount of VAT payable that are generated and displayed on the main Earnings Tracker spreadsheet.
In version 4 of Earnings Tracker you will be able to hide columns in the spreadsheet that are of no interest to you or that you only need to refer to occasionally.
