Not Quick Books


I was using MOYB until they went out of business and QuickBooks tried to take over but was too confusing.

Hello Mike,

If you are looking for a simple accounting solution for a small business (that isn't Quickbooks), I recommend Xero. It calls itself the "beautiful accounting software," and looking at its interface doesn't make me question it. The software offers a free trial if you're interested.

Another accounting solution (which has actually won awards for its ease of use) is Intacct. This solution also has a free trial. Please do check them out. I'm certain you would have a positive experience with either of them.

Hi, Mike.

Xero and Intacct are decent products, as Miranda suggests. But if you haven't already committed to one of those (or something else), there's a new player about to hit the market, well worth looking into: Billy's Billing (

The big plus with this app is that - unlike QuickBooks and most others - it doesn't assume the user is an accountant. In fact, it assumes you're NOT. No special accounting jargon, no strict and complicated procedures only a CPA could love. Simple and straightforward. (It's even beautiful. I'd say more beautiful than Xero - but I'm biased, of course!)

If that sounds like a good fit, check out their website. They've got a free trial offer so you can give it a spin before you commit.
