TOPIC: Bookkeeping nightmare

Bookkeeping nightmare 9 years 1 month ago #36566

Like many of you, I'm guessing, I can inspect a home but have difficulty inspecting my bookkeeping.  Other then Quicken is there a program (free shareware would be great) that you have found to be helpful and not very difficult on the learning curve?  I want to keep Uncle Sam at an arms distance.

I use excel to document my budget and business documents, I also have a good accountant to do my taxes.

Make sure you pay estimated taxes and do a SEP every year if you can.

Actually Open Office a free program can be used instead of word and excel.

I also have an accountant and he uses Quick Books Pro which he put onto my computer, at no additional cost. This makes things very easy especially for the end of year filings. After being showed how and taking a few notes I do my own quarterly filings both state and federal and it's not as hard as it appears to be. Ask your accountant what he uses and if you can get a copy put onto your computer. This actually makes it easier for him to look at a yearly Profit and Loss statement that has been printed out because he's familiar with the program.

Thanks Dominic.  I will check that out.  I created my own cumbersome Openoffice based bookkeeping system.  I am somewhat familiar with Quickbooks so maybe Gnucash won't be that hard to get into.
Thanks.
