Kashflow: Accounting made easy

February 8, 2010 Off By Chris Hinton

I have a love-hate relationship with Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs: I really hate having to fill in a tax return every year, but I usually get a rebate for my trouble. Anything that can help me keep track of my finances accurately is going to be a great help when we get to the end of the financial year again.
I’ve been using Kashflow to track the income and expenditure for my online dealings for a while now and I have to say it’s the best software package I’ve tried. It’s user friendly for someone without an accounting background, i.e. me, but powerful at the same time.
Kashflow offers me:

  • Access to my accounts from any Internet-enabled computer
  • Easy supplier and customer management
  • Smart-looking invoices, and an e-mail reminder of any invoices that are overdue
  • Form “late payment” letters that have been crafted to maximise the likelihood of your client paying up
  • PayPal integration, to track incoming payments
  • At-a-glance overview of the health of your account
  • And plenty more features detailed on the site.

I’m really impressed, evidenced by the fact that I’m still a customer on their £14.99 plan after five months of use. I won’t pay for services I think are substandard, but this is great accounting software for bloggers and small businesses and well worth at least checking out.
The really nice thing is that if you want to try it out Kashflow is completely free for 60 days and (this is the good part) you don’t have to give them your credit card details. If you decide you want to stick with them after the 60 days you can give them your details then, otherwise you just walk away.
If you’re looking to keep track of your accounts securely and easily, give Kashflow a try.
