    Hi,

    Accountants waste a lot of paper (even paperless offices). I want to take my paperless office one step further. I want to email copies of Electronic Lodgment Declarations, Financial Statements, etc. to my clients and have them sign and return the document without printing. I know this is possible because I have done this with some other companies.
    I have seen a couple of these digital signing options on the internet and it can be up to $40 per month to have this running. With the number of documents I am going to be sedning I can not justify this. Is there a program I can buy which does this for a one off fee, or is there a free version of this product. Most of the free versions I have seen allow 3 signatures per month. I will be doing more than that, but I want to know if these is a more cost effective way to do this.

    Thanks

    Paul

    Although Acrobat Standard and Professional is not free, the Adobe Reader is.
    If you purchase Acrobat, then your clients only need Adobe Reader X and higher.

    Let anyone sign your PDF files using free Adobe Reader

    Anyone can use free Adobe Reader software to view PDF files, validate digital signatures, and verify document certification. Acrobat X Pro also lets you enable Reader users to digitally sign PDF documents and forms.

    Thanks for your feedback Karen. That looks like a better option than paying a monthly fee!

    Regards,
