There are a variety of free software packages available for free accounts or ARS, which can be downloaded directly from web pages. Many companies offer free software accounts that can be very useful for home or small businesses. A well-known software offering software for free accounts is Intuit, the creator of Quick Books. In 2009 Intuit's Quick Start, Simple Start Simple Start, was limited by the number of customers. Nearly all free ARS programs provide the customer with check-in, invoice creation and payment of bills. Another free ARS package is GnuCash. This is an open source software that mimics Quick Books for view and functionality.
This free accounting software suite is available in versions that work on both Mac OS X and Windows platforms. Gnu Cash is much more of a commercial version of Quick Books, and it's worth a test run. Microsoft Office Accounting Express is the free ARS offering available through their web site. Express has predefined reports that can be exported to Excel. This free ARS allows customers, employees, and sellers to store records at one place. Another free ARS program is Express Accounts, which is usually an accounting program that works on both Windows and Mac systems.
With this specific program, you can compile balance sheets, as well as profitable loss statements and standard accounting features. You can also send the program by fax or e-mail. For PC users Adminsoft contains a free software account that uses only the PC and works with Windows 95 in Windows. This program offers you the opportunity to create a book for more than one company and can be set up for multiple users.
