    Does anyone know where I can get free accountancy software from? Basic stuff is fine as I only need it for profit and loss and general accounts.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    There are a few options, I tried VT and TAS but in the end paid £90 for Solar Accounts, the ease of use far exceeds my experience with some of the free options so worth every penny.

    We have tried some freebies but we went for Sage Instant Accounts - Fairly well priced.

    VT cashbook is free - its basic but works well if you have limited requirements. Lots of our clients use it and really like it:).

    I forgot to mention that I use a Mac - does VT work on a Mac?

    You can get parallels to run windows on a mac or bootcamp - I like parallels because you can use them both together but it does slow your machine down.

    I know you said free but have you considered a paid for option - for a very small investment you may find you gain considerable benefits compared to using a free package. Just a thought...;):)
