VT requires a Windows operationg system

This software was originally designed to meet the needs of the small trader in new and/or used Vehicles. But is customisable for use by any Matrgin Scheme trader.
Continual development of functions requested by users over an 8 year period has made it suitable also for larger organisations.
Customers range from one man traders to multi million pound turnover businesses with 6 users, and accountants using the multi-client version to provide a service to their clients.  But it remains simple to use out of the box and at it’s very low cost. Version 4.65 introduced a customisable function so that field names can be changed to make it useabke by other margin scheme traders.

It is designed specifically to integrate seamlessly with Sage 50, but can be used stand-alone with files produced for import to Sage or other accounts. The link to Sage is fully dynamic e.g. optionally on saving a sale, the new customer and sales invoice are instantly posted to Sage.

It provides a means of recording Stock, Purchases and Sales including recording Part Exchange, Sale or Return, calculating VAT using the Margin Scheme where appropriate, directly updating Sage Accounts with new Accounts and with Purchase and Sales Invoices, and Printing Invoices . Addition HP Settlements, Due from Finance, and Deposits Taken are all catered for. Supplier invoices for works, and internal costs, can also be recorded against the individual item. Appropriate reports are produced.
