Less accounting review

Expense tracking, account reconciliation and project tags

Perfect for Business Owners who don't

2020-05-08

It's been a great tool that has allowed me to send invoices and proposals to my clients, see whether the invoices have been opened, import bank / Paypal transactions automatically, seamlessly categorize my transactions, and pull all the reports I need!

Pros

The way the software is set up allows someone who has ZERO experience in accounting or bookkeeping to get started right away with their bookkeeping!

Cons

I feel like features can be added for users who want to further personalize their bookkeeping in terms of more technical accounting, but keeping things simple seems to be effective in ensuring that the software can be picked up by anyone to start using it right away.

Generating reports for financial statement preparation for client's year-ends

Pros

Good value for money for smaller, non-complex organizations as it provided the financial reports that you will desire

LessAccounting helped me grow my business

2020-08-04

It has saved me time in invoicing clients and has saved me valuable time during the dreaded tax season.

Pros

LessAccounting has helped me focus on what I do best by keeping my finances organized. The invoicing feature is also a HUGE help in collecting payments from clients quickly and easily.

Cons

Integration with my bank and my most commonly used services was easy to set up.

The Customer Support on this Easy to Use Accounting Software is Outstanding

2020-03-18

Most recently they rewrote the recurring invoices piece to allow for searching recurring invoices after I asked for that.

Pros

Very easy to to use and am able to quickly complete my invoicing and bookkeeping.

Cons

On the Bank Statement Reconciliation under Reports, I would like to be able to collapse accounts down and then open them to reveal all of the Statements as I need to.

Easy-Nice-Clean

2020-08-27

Pros

Easy to implement and a lot of nice features added. The dashboard gives better picture of the numbers and with one click you can switch to different business and transactions.

Cons

Limited invoice templates and sometimes the invoice links are not working, so I need to resend the invoices.

M Olson review - Less Accounting

2020-08-07

Always friendly, prompt, kind and very knowledgeable customer service. Very happy as a customer!!

Pros

Easy to use with banking integration, report generation, manual journal entries, saves time, more coherent and user friendly than Quickbooks, current update has a nice modern feel to it.

Cons

Would like to be able to further categorize 'Other Income' as I have separate streams of income that need to be separated for tax return purposes, and internal tracking.

A simple and easy accounting.

2018-08-13

Pros

As the name suggests this can be used by the people who knows less accounting. This software can be used by small businesses and entrepreneurs who don’t want to spend more time for book keeping.

Cons

Because their tools are simple and easy to use so this can be used for simple accounting purposes.

Didn't do what I wanted it to

2018-11-22

Great idea, good service when I got them my statements, but ultimately the frustration of needing to export and re-export my own statements manually led me to seek another solution.

Pros

What I liked best about it was that someone else would help me keep my books up to date and on track. When my bookkeepers had my information, they were fast and accurate.

Cons

On several occasions, the LessAccounting team was unable to work with the file I provided and I needed to go back and re-export. I understand some of this was my own fault, but the fact that it couldn't be automated in my situation frustrated me.

Simple bookkeeping

2019-03-20

Pros

It's incredibly easy to use with a clean and approachable UI. Since finance isn't my specialty, it's nice to see a software that understands that.

Cons

But, for freelancers or small entrepreneurs who don't need anything too crazy, it should fit the bill.

Better Alternative to Quickbooks

2020-09-11

I'd say very positive. I would much rather use Less than Quickbooks.

Pros

I've used Quickbooks and Zero in the past, but Less Accounting is just simpler to use and manage.

Cons

Nothing really. The interface used to be a bit old, but they updated it so now it's very nice.
