More about us
In 1984, two accountants in Melbourne decided that they could make better accounting applications than what was available in the marketplace. Their innovative ideas led to the development of Catsoft and the slogan “by accountants for accountants”.
The asset register, Catsoft Assets and finance lease software, Leasecat, were the first software packages to be produced under the Catsoft brand. These software packages greatly automated business processing and have since gained a reputation for ease of use and quality of reporting.
During the late 1980's, due to demand and the increasing pace of advancement in technology, Catsoft decided it was time to introduce another two software packages, for tax professionals: Taxcat and Ledgercat. Taxcat became popular among Tax Agents in assisting with the preparation and electronic lodgement of tax returns, while Ledgercat became the standard general ledger software our users would use to produce financial reports.
Catsoft is committed to continually developing and enhancing software to meet user needs. Our bar-code module has been a popular add-on to our Catsoft Assets. CatHub, a practice management software, was introduced to our Taxcat users to assist with client management, time billing, invoicing and trust accounting.
Taxcat continues to be enhanced with more Tax Agent friendly features including pre-filling of Individual Income Tax Returns and Activity Statements with information downloaded through Online Services for Agents or directly through SBR. Trust account management has never been easier than with the Taxcat's EFT Refund Tracking facility.
