I hope that it's changed since, but when HMRC introduced electronic filing
in about 2002 they offered identification by certificate and the
certificates only worked with Windows and I really have no idea how they
even managed that. As it is I believe Gnucash now works with the web filing
service although I use Freeagent.com, which is worth the £25 a month for a
small company (cheaper than a human being generally).
