Abacus Accounts SE

Abacus Accounts 'Startup Edition' is a simplified version of the original, more comprehensive Abacus Accounts.

It is designed as a basic and straightforward bookkeeping program for the self-employed, small startup business or even your personal accounts.

It uses the same double-entry system as the original Abacus Accounts program, but requires no prior knowledge of bookkeeping and, as such, is very easy to use.

However, when your business grows and you require additional functionality (or you become VAT registered) it is easy to move up to the full program.

You can enter as many accounts, and income/expense categories, as you need. Bank accounts and credit card accounts can be reconciled against statements and regular bank payments set up. Reports can be printed for any required period. These may be used to produce the end of year accounts.

Should you later decide to purchase the full version (Abacus Accounts), you can transfer the accounts and transactions you have created (using the backup/restore options).

This version does not include:

                    Customer / Supplier accounts

                    Equity / Asset / Liability accounts

                    VAT / Tax

                    Creating / Printing customer invoices

                    Multiple businesses

                    Exporting reports to CSV files

                    Memorised transactions

                    Regular Bank Deposits (only monthly payments can be set up)

                    Marking accounts as inactive
