We have a management company that does ours, which I think is more work than doing it ourselves (personal opinion), but myself I found FreshBooks to be far superior to Quicken or Quickbooks. I would definitely recommend an online software, however, because then other community members, as authorized, can enter data, check data, etc. Freshbooks was designed about 10 (?) years ago? Maybe a bit longer, but recently enough not to have the problem of baggage necessary to keep old versions and customers happy. And sufficiently long ago that they have experience and have gotten any bugs worked out. It imports records from other accounting programs. Has excellent help files. Speaks Plain English. Very nice clean design. Full reporting capability. Enter the data and push a button. You can update reports as often as you like. The only reason to use Quickbooks is if you work with a CPA who requires it. Some people love it but I have found it needlessly obtuse. But it’s been around a very long time so many people rely on it. For understanding accounting, this article from Entrepreneur evaluates accounting information websites: https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/249673 Their first choice is one I have found very good, The Accounting Coach. Tons of information, great dictionary. https://www.accountingcoach.com When you understand all the ins and outs, watching the figures can be lots of fun. Don’t despair!
