What basic accounting software for a VA business?

Recommended Posts

Guest cat00001

Hello,

 

I am not an accountant, I just want to get a software to keep track of my expenses, income, bills, client invoices...

 

What do you guys suggest?

 

Thanks for your help

I am not an accountant either. I use an excel system. You can choose whatever works best for you to know where you are with your business. There is a beginner system at Quickbooks that is an easy download, I understand. I've used Quickbooks before and it seems to make sense.

 

I know accountants who prefer Quicken. Again, much of it is what works best for you.

You don't say where you are at... if you are in the US and Canada, the most common one is QuickBooks. You can get the basic version for free and then upgrade to Pro when you are ready.

 

You can use a simple Excel spreadsheet as well, but you will quickly outgrow that if you are tracking your company's performance.

 

If you are in Australia, I believe the most common is MYOB (Mind Your Own Books)?

 

I generally tell people to go with the most commonly used, all tax preparers will have them and they're a good choice.

I use QuickBooks Pro and I love it! It has TONS of tutorials to teach you about bookkeeping basics. I agree that downloading the simple version of QuickBooks should happen first to learn how to use it, then go to Pro later if you need it.
