Before we tell you about ourselves, let us first tell you what we know about you…

You’re a church or charity dedicated to making a positive impact on society and on a mission to make a difference in your congregation and your community.

You need an accountancy software solution that aligns with your values and commitment to making the world a better place and understands the specific and unique challenges you face trying to maximise your finances to achieve that.

We know that your financial needs are different from big corporations, and we understand the importance of transparency and accountability in the world of faith and charitable-based organisations.

We understand the passion and purpose behind your work and how important it is that you choose resources that offer reliability, value for money and that ensure you stay fully compliant with the strict financial regulations for your industry.

We also know that you need total confidence that your finances are in order in order to be free to focus on what matters most – serving your congregation, your supporters and your community.  

How do we know this?

We know these things because we have spent over 40 years working with churches and charities just like yours. So if we’re right, and this is you too, why would you ever settle for a generic solution when you can choose Paxton – a small accountancy software company that shares your vision and cares about your mission’s success. With Paxton, you won’t be dealing with a faceless corporation; you’ll have a direct line to a friendly team that genuinely cares about you and your cause, and software that will help you navigate the complexities of financial management, allowing you to focus more on the meaningful work you do. 

So now let us tell you a little about why Paxton is different

Every day the world changes around us. New inventions, new technologies and new ways to improve our ways of working, yet the field of accounting and financial record keeping has largely remained old-fashioned and confusing to most, with cumbersome and unwieldly systems that aren’t designed with the end user in mind.

So many accounting software solutions are outsourced to remote developers, and so many ‘customer service’ teams are actually faceless call centres with the people at the end of a phone following a script without any real knowledge about the product they’re supposed to be providing support for.

This is the exact, polar opposite of our business, our product and our company ethos. Paxton Software is built and maintained in-house by Gareth – who designed it especially for churches and charities – and there’s nothing our customer support lead, Eve, doesn’t know about how to use our products in order to provide the very best support. 

We believe that the accounting software you choose should remove stress – not add it. Our software has been designed especially for churches & charities, rather than trying to adapt and amend generic accountancy software to try and fit. We understand exactly what you need and provide all the things, all in one place, with 100% UK-based support to back it up. That’s why we’ve been trusted and recommended for over 40 years.

And why our history matters…

For over four decades, Paxton Software has been dedicated to providing modern, jargon-free accountancy software solutions specifically for Churches and Charities, packaged with old fashioned, UK-based customer service.

Paxton has been developing software solutions for Churches, Charities and not-for-profit sectors since it was formed in 1979. Since the mid 1980s, we provided The British Army and The Royal Marines with the accounting solution for their messes, clubs and service funds. Paxton is an approved developer of software for HM Government and has supplied the service funds system in use throughout The British Army and The Royal Marines.

Choosing a company that has been thriving for over 40 years is a decision backed by experience, reliability, and a proven track record. Over the course of four decades, our software company has weathered numerous economic climates and evolving industry landscapes, demonstrating our resilience and adaptability.

Our longevity speaks volumes about our commitment to excellence, customer satisfaction, and our ability to consistently deliver on promises. By choosing Paxton Software, you can have total peace of mind, knowing that our products have stood the test of time and earned the trust of countless customers over the course of our decades-long history. 

Meet our team

Small enough to make a BIG difference…

When it comes to exceptional customer service, sometimes the size of the team can make all the difference, which is why Paxton is a deliberately small but perfectly-formed company.  

The close-knit nature of the Paxton team creates a culture of teamwork, dedication, and accountability, resulting in prompt responses, efficient workflows, and a high level of attention to detail.

Choosing a company like Paxton over a faceless global software company means choosing a partner who values your purpose, prioritises your needs, and goes above and beyond to deliver a truly exceptional customer experience.
