Easy-to-use, free accounting software

Accounting is essential to small business. Whether you are a freelancer, a musician or you run a retail operation, you need be on top of your financial situation at all times.

Once accounting procedures were a mystery to many small business owners, and maintaining an audit trail - even if you knew what that meant - required serious expenditure. The choice was to invest in a bookkeeper or take lessons in learning to use expensive software. Fortunately, today there are several options that require no cash outlay, i.e., free accounting software that is easy to use.

Manager Desktop Edition is as simple to use as stuffing your receipts in a drawer - but far less stressful at tax time, and requires no financial investment.

See exactly where you stand financially - right on your desktop

Review all your sales and expenditures, know how you stand in terms of the bank, and assess what bills need to be paid and who owes you how much, simply by opening the file for your business in Manager, and scrolling down through the various module summaries.

Manager Desktop Edition is the free accounting software version of the Cloud and Server editions of the program. It is especially designed to bring the same easy-to-use functions to the small business user as the multi-user versions provide to larger operations. Manager includes all the basic accounting modules and tax functions you need and is so intuitive that you can just launch it and be up and running in no time. No studying required! If that sounds scary, no worries - there are online Guides to help you on your way to setting up the business information and chart of accounts, the cashbook, accounts receivable, accounts payable, inventory and payroll.

"Not as intuitive as other double-entry accounting software"

Pros: This software has a pleasant looking GUI and there are most of the standard features one might need to run the financial side of a small business.

Cons: I was initially frustrated by not being able to find out how to add accounts to the program. Once I found the "Chart of accounts" under settings, it was clear as mud as to how to add accounts, but, I figured it out. Then I went to the Ledger and began adding in some transactions. It was very difficult to see how to add opening balances to any of the accounts without there being an imbalance. I tried creating an Equity:Opening Balances account added the funds there and kept getting "IMBALANCE" in big red letters. In GnuCash it is as easy as creating an opening balance entry under Equity and then linking it to the account. I am probably doing something wrong, but, I use GnuCash everyday, all day long and I don't have the headache I am getting after trying to do simple tasks in this software. Another issue is that you can't add accounts "on the fly" like you can in GnuCash. If you create expense accounts for each vendor like I do, you have to go back into the Chart of accounts and add the account manually before you can use it. In GnuCash this is as easy as typing Expenses:VenderName then hitting tab. A prompt will ask to create the account and you have the new account available.

Other Thoughts: The measure of how good a piece of software is, in my opinion is how transparent it becomes while you are doing what it was intended to do. I want to have a smooth workflow especially when doing bookkeeping tasks that are already a pain. If I have to dig through menus and do a lot of exploring and nail-biting just to do a simple thing, then I think that I will abandon that program for the one that makes things easier, in my case that is GnuCash.
