Tax Software - Sigurd - 6th June 2017

Hi,
I have a friend who is an accountant in Germany. So, I told her about Linux and it's advantages. Usually she uses the software "Steuersoft" under Windows. For her it is comfortable because this software creates files the German Tax Authority can handle and replys.
My question now is:
Is there under Linux a tax software that can do the same? I mean this software should be compatible with the software "Steuersoft". So that she can use it instead of Windows and "Steuersoft" and interact with the Tax Authority? The other way is to run "Steuersoft" under Linux using Wine. Is there anybody who knows how to do that and perhaps who is already doing it this way?
Kind regards,
Sigurd

If yes, then it's Platinum under wine and Platinum means that everything works Wink

Hi rocky7x,
sorry this is not the right software. In my text from yesterday I have included a Link to the website of Steuersoft. Here is the Link: https://www.steuersoft.de .
Kind regards,
Sigurd

Hi,

I haven't found that in WineHQ, but it's very easy to try. If it's a standard Windows software, there's a 99% chance that it will work fine, especially with Wine 2.0+. Just put it in an empty new wine prefix and select proper architecture (32-bit or 64-bit).

Hi,

I have one question : here in Italy it is possible to use the tax softwares from State Tax Agency (better not because it is like a nightmare) or use software made by software houses that works in cloud and You work trough a web browser (the solution that I adopted, because I'm also an accountant).
There is this possibility in Germany ?

Yes this is possible aswell. There exists Elster as Online Webbrowser app and as Windows application compatible with wine.

Hello! thank you for sharing such a valuable query with us. Since a few months back, I was also looking for invoice cum accounting software who can handle both tasks at the same time. I want a software through which, I do every accounting task starting from recording financial transaction till preparing balance sheet or other financial statements. And such software also has an option to file a tax return. After exploring the various market inĀ  India, I found BTHAWK, Sleek bill, clear tax etc are one of the best GST Billing Software, gst accounting software that performs both tasks very well. Kindly have a look at such software once. I don't know about tax in Germany but if you are looking for software as per Indian law, then you can try such software.
