VATStuff iconVATStuff 0.7.0

Double entry bookkeeping and VAT accounting
VAT calculations are designed to meet UK regulations, and are not applicable to other states.

VATStuff is a cross-platform software, however the current development is on Linux, and a Widows version has not yet been prepared.

Installation on Linux

VATStuff requires python version 2.5 or later. To check your version, type 'python --version' at a terminal prompt.

VATStuff depends on a number of libraries, which you need to install. These are; WxPython, PIL and Reportlab. On Ubuntu use the package management system to install:


Once these are installed, download the file vatstuff_0_1.tgz into your home directory (or any other directory which you may prefer), and untar it using the command:

tar -xf vatstuff_0_1.tgz

Alternatively - if you are using Ubuntu, after moving it to your home folder, just right-click on the archive icon and choose 'Extract Here'

This will create a directory 'vatstuff' with everything beneath it. Should you want to uninstall, delete this directory and its contents.

To run VATStuff, change into the vatstuff directory, and double click on - or from the terminal type ./

If the file does not have executable permissions, try python instead.
