Basic Bookkeeping is an accounting program for business owners, not accountants. Unlike double entry systems, Basic Bookkeeping's single entry method is intuitive. You simply enter your income and expenses. There are no credits, debits or other accounting jargon to worry about. If you have used "Dome" books (e.g., "Simplified Monthly Accounting", etc), you will be right at home with Basic Bookkeeping. The single entry method is well suited to most small businesses including independent contractors, sole proprietors, partnerships and S-corporations.
Favoring functionality over glitzy graphics, the user interface reduces input time and errors. Many of our users have come to appreciate BBK's elegant simplicity after being frustrated by Quick Books and other bloated accounting systems. As one user wrote: "Your program is exactly what I've needed. I've struggled with Quickbooks for a number of years. It is WAY more complicated than what I need. As a one-man business with perhaps twenty transactions per month, Basic bookkeeping is much better suited to my needs."
Basic Bookkeeping features a set of comprehensive reports that are instantly available to help with business decisions. The reports are clear, concise and designed to organize income and expense information to support analysis of business activities, and preparation of taxes by either you or your accountant. Business success starts with intelligent money management and you can't know where you're going unless you know where you are.
New to Version 7, Basic Bookkeeping now allows users to print expense checks directly from within the program. Simply enter the expense amount, fill in the check and Basic Bookkeeping can print a check ready to be placed in a window envelop and mailed. Version 7 also adds the capability to track mileage and print a mileage log.
