    Unfortunately, there is no way to add additional headers, lines to the balance sheet or profit and loss account. All the entries will have to be recorded under the one header available on the T.B - It would be great to add additional lines!

    We use IRIS desktop trialling Elements. The ability to tailor the chart of accounts is fundamental to whether we go from trial to using the software. Otherwise we are identical accountants to everyone else, in a market where we are trying to offer something different. We use specific account names to record the information on income and costs. We then compare and benchmark to industry standards and across our database of similar clients, to create added value and consultancy. So until then we will not progress.

    I have been running your software with a few test clients and just love it.

    The ability to amend/rename headings would be great.

    Linked to this is the “detailed income statement” in FRS105 accounts. This is an ugly document. The “detailed profit and loss account” in FRS 102A accounts is much better. Please could you allow the use of the detailed profit and loss account with FRS105.

    If you do this, I for one will move my whole practice onto tax filer.

    I agree, at present there are many limitations with both P&L and balance sheet headings. In order for the software to stay competitive, the sooner these are addressed the better, otherwise some clients will move to other providers .

    The other software's with same price range offers this additional ability to modify the trial balance headings as needed so taxfiler should follow the suit. Otherwise, it would be late that I will stop using taxfiler.

    It won't be happening in Taxfiler, it will be in the new Iris Elements Accounts and Tax coming out soon which uses Taxfiler code.

    Clear leader in the votes. I don't understand why this has taken so long. Taxfiler are raising prices - how about raising your game and adding this simple feature!

    It is mad that you cant change headings and descriptions within the trial balance on Tax filer. This can be done in other soft wares eg iris. I have just taken over a new client and want to enter the opening balances, however the descriptions and headings will be different. This is not going to look good for my client. I am advised Tax filer support that I could export the trial balance and accounts and change them. This would result in not being able to submit to companies house through tax filer. COME ON TAX FILER GET THIS CHANGED ASAP. I See from other comments that I am not the only one frustrated by this. Chris Oakes - Oakes Accounting.

    We need to add or at least amend the descriptions headings!

    I agree with Sophie!

    I cannot believe this is still not an option in Taxfiler. It must be the only accounts package you are not able to amend descriptions. I am thinking of going back to Iris, more expenseive but a lot more adapatable.

    This is another lack in Taxfiler. It has so many limitation including this.

    I asked for this over 3 years ago so it is disappointing that it still is not an option

    Another vote for this option. As others have stated, this has been requested for years so how about it ?

    I have a client that cannot understand why I can not make simple changes to headings i.e. under fixed asset change "Cost of Valuation" to be just "Cost". I can show other Loan Interest but cannot show Other Loans in the Notes. This ability to have more flexibility seems to be by far the most voted for item. Why has Taxfiler not address this issue when it was first raised over 4 years ago?

    Also new to Tax Filer and am disappointed that there is no option to rename, very difficult to provide a clear set of accounts. This section seems to be voted for the most. Are there any plans for change?

    I am thinking to tax filer due to not having an option to add/amend/rename headings on trail balance. I am working on the new client's account and support @ taxfiler said, they do not have any option.

    This is the only reason i am planning to leave taxfiler as soon as my current year ends. At the very least they could add some extra nominals that are very commonly used. Ideally some blank ones that we can enter the description for
