Paulina N.

It is a user-friendly cloud-based accounting system for small business owners and accountants.

2018-04-30

The software did all the accounting jobs such as bill pay, paid contractors and vendors accurately, tracked the payments, and generated reports.

Pros

It allows to track customer invoices, pay bills, print forms and pay vendors.

Cons

I experience some problems at the beginning with setting up the system, however, there are videos available for trouble shooting that are very useful and the customer service is very effective and responsive.

My Review of Patriot Accounting

2020-09-22

Some features are very easy to work with while others seem to be more difficult, like keeping a running balance for the checking account where it is easy to see.

Pros

I really like the ease of the accounts reconciliation feature and the invoicing feature as well.

Cons

I do not like that when using the withdrawal/deposit feature that there is no way to tell what my bank balance is without going to reports.

Perfect for Small Business

Overall, Patriot Accounting has been very efficient and adequate for my payroll needs for both employees, subcontractors and vendors.

Pros

I like the direct deposit feature for payments to guarantee a proven transaction record for all payments.

Cons

I don't like the 3-business day delay in debits and direct deposits, nor do I like the extra fee if I need it sooner.
