- What Home Accounting Packages do you guys use?
I am having a go with microsoft money at the moment.
Yes it is discontinued and unsupported but it is a free download to see if you like it, and most/all of the other paid software is able to import from money.
The bit I am not liking about money is that it “learns” categorization based on things you have put into catagories by hand previously. There does not appear to be a hard rule that can be defined “anything with BP or Shell is petrol” kind of thing.Posted 4 years ago
A big impact is the bank you use, can you download statements in a usable format? First direct can do that easily in a number of formats, but Smile (despite being an internet only bank) cannot.craigxxlMember
Excel with a simple Sumif and unpaid items highlighted is the simplest and most foolproof way of keeping your accounts up to date. Extra columns can be added to account for VAT.
Sage One, Kashflow and Xero are all designed for those with no understanding of accounts. They are subscription based and very simple to use. They also allow your accountant to access the data if required. Xero is modular based with addons to do just about anything you require.
Sage Instant accounts and Line 50 require an understanding of accounts but can give a whole wealth of added functions.Posted 4 years agobencooperMember
Sage Line 50 is a bit OTT for working out how much you spend in Tescos 😉
Besides that, Sage is the most bloated, awful, horrible piece of software, with the most unhelpful, money grabbing company supporting it.
For my business I use an app called Easy Books on iPad etc – it’s very good, may well do what you need.
