Member question - replacement for VT Transaction+ software

Recently we received this question from a member:

I am a one-man practitioner who deals mainly with small clients. I like to recommend to clients who ask (most of them) good easy to use software for bookkeeping. Up to now I have recommended VT Transaction+ but they have said that they will not be making changes to accommodate MTD so I am looking for an alternative. It is sophisticated but easy to use, there are sufficient reports but not too many, it’s multi-currency, it can be divisionalised, there is no year-end procedure other than to lock a year’s books when they are finalised, correcting errors is supremely simple. 

The member wishes to locate a suitable alternative to VT Transaction+. It is challenging to find a suitable replacement as many applications provide numerous features that are simply not required. 

Do you have any suggestions? If you do then please leave your answers below.
