Accounting software for a small business?



New Member
What would you recommend is the best accounting software for a small business?

Xero, FreeAgent, QuickBooks, or something else?

Has anyone used Money Manager from Moneysoft and how does it compare? It's just a one off purchase, so no subscription is required which is a big bonus.

I like the look of FreeAgent but the cost is at least £190 + VAT per year (after the 1st year) so it's not cheap.

I'd also be interested in what you think about the invoicing capabilities (if any) of the applications.

Really, to organize your work, you just need helpers. I would recommend Parthenon for coding, management, invoicing, and others. Indeed, it is a perfect structured software that can solve all your problems quickly. Don't rely on rigid and inflexible software libraries that restrict your growth and make everything much more complicated than it needs to be. You need an assistant who knows how to work competently and should not take a lot of time. I tried different versions of applications and additional programs. But this one is really the best .

There may indeed be some difficulties in setting up and adapting the company to this system. However, do not be immediately afraid. I myself went through this as a manager, and I will say that everything will be fine if you approach this situation correctly.
