I have used Quickbooks for donkeys and think it is great - very simple and straightforward - I havent found anything that it hasnt been able to do for my needs.

Is it expensive? I certainly need something to help me get organised.

I have purchased the QuickBooks (simple one) for about £40....the Pro version is around £300 and I didn't warrant spending that kind of money on helping me keep track of my business as it's only a small business.

So far, I have to say it's fab, it has everything I need and more, it caters for every financial eventuality, it even helps you keep track of client trends and spends (not PAYE though)....still feeling my way around it, but even catching up on my backlog (which was paper based) has been easy.

Well, if I'd know about that I could have saved myself 40 quid....sure there's a catch???

Is it not the USA version?

No, I think the Simple version was released as Freeware in October last year, they basically want you to get that, then upgrade to more complicated versions with more features. I don't think you need to though.

USA version? Not sure, mine works fine once you've messed with the settings though.

I've just downloaded it for free, no problems... but I have to say I'm having trouble! It seems to be the U.S. version so won't accept my bank account etc and it is a tad complicated! I just want to know what I've paid out, what I've got coming in and if I've made any money! I'm going to persevere with it a bit and try and change the settings. Does anyone know of any alternative programs that are a bit simpler... or am I being a techno-phobe!?:irked:

You COULD or you could read the manual! :lol:

Sorry, didnt realise people wanted to integrate bank accounts- I didnt want to do that (didnt trust it). I was just using it for simple incomings outgoings and invoice tracking.

Thought there had to be a catch. No such thing as a free lunch... or a free software download it seems! It was worth a try though!
