Personal and small-business financial-accounting.

Overview

Gnucash is personal and small-business financial-accounting software, freely licensed under the GNU GPL and available for GNU/Linux, BSD, Solaris, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows.

Designed to be easy to use, yet powerful and flexible, GnuCash allows you to track bank accounts, stocks, income and expenses. As quick and intuitive to use as a checkbook register, it is based on professional accounting principles to ensure balanced books and accurate reports.

What's new in Gnucash

Version 3.10-1:
Changes:
  • This is a snap release to reverse the changes to the reconcile window's filtering reconciled transactions with a reconcile date after the current statement date when computing the starting balance. It seems that many users' books have accounts with reconcile dates in the future that were suddenly filtered out, creating an incorrect starting balance and making it impossible to reconcile the book.
  • Between 3.9 and 3.10, the following bugfixes were accomplished:
  • Bug 620848 - Transfer Funds window - add Notes field
  • Bug 797006 - Balance is misleading in open subaccounts when different currencies are involved
  • Bug 797318 - Amounts ending in zero displayed as fractions
  • Bug 797666 - libgnucash/engine/test/test-recurrence.c: In function 'check_valid': 'result' may be used uninitialized
  • Bug 797676 - Register displays amount in transaction currency instead of register currency.
  • Bug 797674 - 3.9: "test-gnc-path-util" failed on Debian amd64
The following fixes and improvements were not associated with bug reports:
  • Update latest translation from the Translation project.
  • [window-reconcile] when reconciling, warn on splits having a reconcile date > statement_date
  • [window-reconcile] when inputing statement_date, warn if it's after today
  • [find-transactions] add search for reconciled date
  • Show transaction value, not amount, for registers with subaccounts.
  • If the register has subaccounts in different currencies and a transaction has splits in more than one, the transaction will incorrectly appear to be unbalanced if we total amounts because the balancing logic works on split values.
  • Add instance argument to Session constructor
  • Enables a python console to connect to the running GnuCash's session.
  • Make python console less noisy without --debug.
  • Provide locals and globals of calling context to the python console's shell on shell init
  • Merge Jean Laroche's '797006_subaccounts' into maint.
  • Add check to display warning dialog for mismatched commodities
  • Replicate changes in *2 files
  • Apply astyle to modified files
  • Merge Chris Mayo's iPython-fixes into maint.
  • Make pycons/ishell.py compatible with Python 3 and current IPython
  • [eguile-utilities] Prevent crash in balsheet-eg.scm
  • [eguile] escape-html -> gnc:html-string-sanitize
  • [qif-to-gnc] Properly mark intra-QIF internal transfers.
Others:
  • We have a revised Ukrainian translation.

It's a full-featured app, of that there is no doubt. But, it's very poor when it comes to user experience: headache-inducingly bad. In only a short time of managing several bank accounts and using several of its everyday banking functions I encountered over half-a-dozen glaring issues that really affect its usability. One major issue for me is the paucity of default keyboard shortcuts coupled with an apparent inability to acknowledge custom shortcuts created in the Keyboards prefPane. Another glaring omission is the ability to select more than one transaction in the ledger at a time. I could go on… It'll get the job done, there's little doubt about that, but it'll take considerably longer than it would on a properly integrated native app. If time is money then this app's too expensive…

Gnucash is cool because as a Mac owner you can use .qif downloads from your bank. I used to use an old version of quicken but it wasn't supported on Yosemite, and I didn't think paying intuit every month for cloud access to use their newer interchange formats was worth it. Gnucash can be used with newer interchange formats too. It takes a little getting used to and is not as smooth an interface as most Mac apps, but I am finding it does everything I want and for free! Startup tip- categories and bank accounts are both treated as accounts by Gnucash. Each transaction is added or subtracted from a bank account or credit card account and balanced in the category account.

Version: 2.4.10
This is not software for a novice such as myself, no matter how many years they have used a Mac. There is a lot to it, and although the documentation has a great deal of information about every menu item, there is no tutorial or introductory explanation for a novice such as me. For example, I started it up, using all the defaults, and tried to enter a Transaction. But I got an error "This account register is read-only. If you want to edit transactions in this register, please open the account options and turn off the placeholder checkbox." But I could not find any "account options" nor any "placeholder checkbox", so I was not able to use this software. Also its response seems rather slow on my iMac. But if you can figure out how to use it, and do not need any support, probably it will do all sorts of things for you.

No mySQL or PostgreSQL drivers included. You must rebuild yourself the application at each new version !

This is a full featured accounting tool. The most common complaint is that it is too complex for personal use, only suited for business use, but I've been using it successfully for ten years now (starting on Linux and migrating to Mac years later). It is focused on double entry accounting, and as such, every transaction has a category or balancing transaction. This is similar to notions that other accounting tools offer, but there is no effort here to hide the accounting. Budgeting features exist, but I've never used them. The stock and mutual fund tracking features are reasonably good and includes online retrieval of quotes. If the financial institution supports some well known standards, it can retrieve transactions online, including reconciliation with already entered items. On the downside, the mutual fund basis calculation is obtuse and I've never managed to figure out what I'm doing wrong to get the basis to report correctly. The importer, while nice, could do with more memory functions and better matching. I have experienced some minor stability issues, especially when trying to modify or enter transactions. Lately, some pop-up windows are focus demanding, but they appear under the window that called them, making it hard to understand why I can't click on the window in front of me. That should be an easy fix and is hopefully corrected in this new version. The importer can handle both QIF and OFX files, so even if automatic retrieval isn't an option, it can import a downloaded transaction file. I use OFX because of limitations of the QIF format of old. The new SQLite backend is speedier than the old XML backend, a nice improvement.

It may be good for small businesses but for personal use it is over the top. Buddi is the best application for personal home use.
