I am a newcomer to Spotlight Reporting and I have to say I love it!! Being a business coach rather than an accountant the budgeting and cash flow forecasting never came easily to me. Using Spotlight I had the rest of this financial year budgeted and forecast done in 30 minutes. With the addition of the Action Plan, we can now take our quarterly priorities and add them to our reports giving a more complete picture of where we and our clients are at. Great work guys!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE Spotlight Reporting. We have seriously used every single financial reporting software that is available but love the ease of Spotlight, it seems to be built for accountants who love the numbers and ratios, also the industry templates are great too. Our clients love the reports and we love the ease it takes to prepare them, highly recommend!

I've tried several Reporting add-on's for Xero and have selected Spotlight Reporting above all the others. It is very user-friendly and intuitive, and I was able to get up to speed very quickly thanks to the great support from the Spotlight team, and their online resources.  Most of all my clients think they are great too, and at the end of the day that's what counts!! I can highly recommend Spotlight - or perhaps I shouldn't else I'll lose the competitive edge it's giving me!
