Easy Books Accounting

7.8.6
09 July 2019

Double-entry accounting application.

Overview

Easy Books is a fully functional double-entry accounting application. The app is developed by Geode Software and is available as a free download. It comes with space for 120 entries (transactions) and some example companies for you to try it out. You can upgrade with a one-off purchase within the app, and you decide what features you want, so you only pay for what you need.

Easy Books is ideally suited to small businesses and 'one-man bands'. We have had lots of feedback from people who love the iOS version of this app; builders, contractors, consultants, musicians, farmers, treasurers, and, of course, bookkeepers. Together they have sent suggestions (via the feedback form) which have improved the app over time.

Not exactly free. From the website: What does it cost? You can pick any of these options, but businesses typically purchase the Transactions add-on first because this extends the limit of 120 entries that you can make.

EasyBooks 7.8 is easily the best Accounting app I have used that has multi-company support. Yes, it is subscription-based. Yet for that modest amount the features and quality are top notch. I do not fine the pricing offensive. I was using Xero online and was paying substantially more for a one-company product. I upgraded to the Silver plan for 2019 so that I can work with the invoices feature. I used the Bronze plan for 2018 and seven LLC/S-Corps. The periodic reports for ME, QE, and YE of 2018 were a breeze to produce and send off to my clients.

If you have multi-company needs you are hard pressed to find more value for your money. If you are a single company, there may be cheaper alternatives out there but I've found the quality of this software to be excellent.

I recommend EasyBooks.

UPDATE: Just configured invoices, payment receipts, and statement of account for one of my businesses. Very professional looking output document. Very easy to customize and tweak to just what you want, within reason. I also found out that since I purchased the app from the App Store the subscription fees are less than on the website. Just sayin'...

The developer calls this application "free" although it is just a trial and actually requires a subscription fee of at least $160 per year. In my opinion this justifies to give the application only half a star. I find such an attitude dubious if not crooked.

The developer does not call this application "free". Only MacUpdate does, but that's not the developer's fault. If you go to the developer's website, you will find a clear description of the pricing model.

This is not free. After 60 transactions you'll have to subscribe at $10 to $15 per month.

After praising it, I now gave this one up, it has turned into a subscription-based app (for comparison price-wise: about 1/2 the price of a full Adobe Creative Suite subscription. I find this way too steep for my basic accounting needs=single-man studio). Am now using iCompta.

Excellent app, can seem pricey getting all the modules, but considering how almost complete it is for a small business like me at least, allowing to manage both business and private financial entries, multi-currencies, different rates for different clients etc. spendings etc etc.. Interface is uncluttered, not gimmicky like many of these accounting apps. All that is missing for me is a timer to make it a complete one-stop do-it-all app, it allows for manual timed-based entries but would be nice if it actually had a clock-timer that could be turned on while working and translate into entries without having to use a separate app (as I do now). Invoices are pretty basic-looking but sufficient. I've tried many many of these apps (none as complete) and have settled on this one for the past couple of years.

They shouldn't say it is free when it's not. Sure it's a free download but that is about it.

The specs on this page say Easy Books 4 is compatible with OS 9. That is incorrect. If you download it, first you will see that the application icon has the corss-out image superimposed on it. If you try to launch it in Mavericks you will get a message that it only works in OS X 10.10 Yosemite. You'd think that a developer who puts so much work into his application would make sure the info on MacUpdate was correct - particularly on such an important point. Hey, guys, get your act together!

Well, they finally updated the specs for this version of EasyBooks. This raises the question, though: Why would you download an app designed for a version of OS X that has not yet been released? If this is a vital app for you, and you are testing Yosemite, maybe it makes sense. But where are the versions of EasyBooks for iterations of OS X that most people are using? The absence of such links seems to me to be a glaring oversight. Do the developers want people to use their app or not? If they promote their app so poorly, how good can the app be? Makes you wonder.

The pricing scheme has changed. It's now sold (rented) by subscription; the basic plan is £9—$11.29—a month, paid annually, which means it's now $92.60 a year. What you get for free is a trial version of the program—which is at least better than any app from the App Store. Still, the labeling is confusing. It should say "free trial". They'd get fewer bad reviews that way. As it stands, in an effort to get people to try their software they're poisoning their own well. Honesty is the best policy.

That said, the switch to subscription pricing is a deal breaker for me. Subscriptions are absolutely the worst trend in software sales. Marketing for this app has gone from bad to worse.

It is somewhat indecent to publish a version compatible with Mavericks only, most decent apps in this category start at 10.6.x, 10.7.x at the latest. But perhaps I am wrong—

This bothered me, too. But the OS X 10.7 version, 1.2, is downloaded when you click the Download button on the developer's web site. I had downloaded version 1.1 before, but have not yet gotten around to using it. Now I have a new iMac with OS X 10.9 so I can try the latest version.

I am sorry, but the nickel and dime approach to software should never be tolerated. After a brief peek, I walked away, so I will not rate it. If all you need is personal accounting (or even personal / small business) there are better choices that cost less... or are even free. Some are already in the "similar" list above, though I will agree with others that some may not be similar enough.

Ok, I've postponed this decision for 2 years now.. Changing my accounting setup that is. I have now played around with this, which scared me I have to admit, it somehow looks "serious and stern" which it should be but that put me off a bit at first (accounting does anyway).. Yet it is very clean and streamlined I downloaded it and opened it a few times over months, just to take a glimpse once in a while and click a few buttons here and there, until I finally dove in! This will officially replace my current setup: iCompta/TimeLog/GrandTotal (which I upgraded not long ago.. silly me). I even bought something called Debit+Credit that was supposed to play well with GrandTotal.. and ended up a total waste of crashing money. Well if I had bought this earlier.. had I only known ! EasyBooks can be the replacement for the above three, all in one. And thus much cheaper with all three modules than the software collection above as well. I will use it for the coming fiscal year to start on a clean slate ! Might even re-enter 2013 in there if I feel bored-silly on some overcast day.. And I tend to think the developer is serious and will keep this alive for many years to come..
