I vote Quickbooks. It seems well supported and pretty easy to use, also it seems to be scalable. We use it to track our employees time (we are an ad agency so we bill by the hour a lot) and pay all the bills, invoice clients, run reports, P and L statements and all that. When we first started out it was simple enough for me to use it myself and as we grew it was sophisticated enough to grow with us and now our bookkeeper uses it. It interfaces well with our CPA too. I think it's kind of a standard biz accounting choice.

G Creative is full service ad agency, we provide affordable website design packages from $99/month.

This post needs to be updated as number of accounting software released over the time. Xero, QuickBooks and FreshBooks are the big names. User having accounting background easily grasp complex software like QuickBooks. The problem comes to the small business owners (1-5 emp) and user having non-accounting background. I have used free version of Wave, but recently sign up for SlickPie as I can't afford the paid version of Wave for my basic bookkeeping needs. Moreover, I found it very easy to learn as I am from non-accounting background.

Personally, I would recommend QuickBooks software. It is a fully-featured and easy to use accounting software that can automate your business accounting entirely. However, there are many other choices available such as Xero, Wave, FreeAgent, Zoho Books etc.

Before selecting a software for your business, I would recommend the following:
- Your business requirements
- Your budget
- Your experience with the software
- Features required for your business and
- Geographical reach and support for the software.

Hope that helps,

Default Accounting Software

First off, I use accounting software but always like to say that you don't necessarily need any. To me, a spreadsheet listing all the dates/amounts/sources of your spends and deposits is fine for a basic/new business.

Most entrepreneurs are not accountants. And the time YOU spend on accounting is likely not going to produce any revenue. So I tell most business owners to keep good records (which can even be a file with receipts and bank statements in it), and hire a professional to do your taxes.

Now relative to a specific software, most small businesses use QuickBooks (Intuit). But the only thing I'd worry about in selecting a software is usability and maybe preference of a trusted accounting professional that will maybe code and do reporting... likely do your taxes... but most importantly set up the COA (Chart of Accounts) structure in the software. And unless you are an accountant, I recommend against you setting up your own COA.

So bottom-line... if you don't have a trusted accountant, find one first. Then ask them. And I strongly recommend you have them set up the infrastructure of your business on the selected choice.

BTW - QuickBooks runs about $50/month... but you may be able to get it for less by your accountant setting it up on his instance and creating a login and entity for you.

Default Accounting and time tracking software

Getting an accounting software depends on your business and how you plan on using this tool. I have tested a lot of accounting tools and will say, I have a good experience with BillQuick software, it's a simple integrated solution for time and expense tracking, billing, project management and accounting hosted in the cloud.
