As well as analysis reporting, the package outputs your HMRC claim spreadsheet.

With clear multi fund reporting from catalogued templates at the click of a button.
Full budgeting facilities for each fund with variance and remainder reporting provide an important means of safeguarding against overspending. Rapid budget generation from historic actual or previous budget figures.
Instant variance reporting by fund, group of funds or for all funds consolidated.
As well as day to day reconciliation and status reporting, the financial statements required for the trustees and elders meetings can provide a daunting challenge. Well, let the Paxton package create these for you.
And, of course, the year end returns can also be difficult and time consuming to produce.
