Simply brilliant

Have been using Xero for a year now, after switching from MYOB. So easy, I no longer need to outsource bookkeeping services - and I am emphatically not an accounting adept.

New QuickBooks Online

Im new to QuickBooks Online and wow the visuals are seriously cool. From the home page you can directly see graphs like the p&l , your expenses, your income and you can see who owes you money and how much is still outstanding.

I like Freeagent

I've been using freeagent now for just under a year and I'm really impressed by the amount of work that has gone into making this such an intuative accounting package. The customer support is quick and it has a number of excellent features, although I would like to see more - things like the lack of proper multi currency support is an issue for me also...and it has been on the 'to do' list for some time now..

AUSSIE WET BLASTING

Hi everybody I think XERO has saved my life , I can now read and understand my accounts I have got my debtors down to a good level, have money in the bank ( not a lot hard times ) also I have been able to deal with bad paying customers quickly and on top of that 2 of them have gone broke but I got my money long be for as XERO puts the bad ones in my face as soon as I turn it on. Do have 1 complaint can they - you at XERO use every day words as we are not Accountant's we do not use the terms Xero and the number people use and I do find I make mistakes as I don't sit on Xero or speak like an accountant all day long im just a small operator and do many things all day plain language would be great example money out money in tell me all I need to know .

Doesn't Work With Wells Fargo Business Accounts.

If I could give this zero stars I would. The program works and looks similar to the desktop version but the support is absolutely horrendous! It took an Hour and a half to get to a human being, and when I did they informed me that there is no compatibility with Wells Fargo Business Accounts.
