Well, the free accounts software Adminsoft Accounts really does work!
Unlike many other so called 'free' accounting software packages, Adminsoft Accounts is not just a free trial, it really can be used for free, for ever. No time out, and no reduced functionality.
It's a full double entry accounting system, complete with Accounts Receivable (Sales Ledger), Accounts Payable (Purchase Ledger), General Ledger (Nominal Ledger), Stock Control/Inventory, Purchase Order Processing, Invoice software, Human Resources, and even payroll software. It's also multi-user, multi-company, and multi-currency.
In addition, it contains special modules (which can also be used for free) for retail, cafe, and restaurant trade, and for point of sale and workshop operations in the autotrade.
The software will run on just about any PC running Windows, from Windows 98 through to Windows 11. It will also run on iMac or Linux/Unix machines when using Windows emulation.
Adminsoft Accounts is developed by a small business owner for use by other small business owners. So it isn't full of accounting jargon, it's easy to use by people who don't have an accounting degree, it works the way small business people tend to work, not the way accountants work. You can use as many of, or as few of the facilities provided as you like. For example, if you don't wish to use the General Ledger (Nominal Ledger), you can just ignore it. Also, unlike most other accounting systems, it doesn't force you to perform complicated account period end or year end procedures. It just keeps rolling forwards. Your business doesn't stop at the end of each account period or year, so why should your accounting software?

Here are some of their comments:
"I have been working with software - including in development businesses - for 30 years and Adminsoft would have to be among the best products I have ever seen in terms of technical quality (compact file size, fast and efficient installation, reliable performance, etc), general usability, and performance power. The backup system is positively awesome. The ease and speed of installing the update was astonishing. The product outperforms most SME accounting software I've used (and I have tested all the popular brands and some obscure titles as well)." Lorraine, Australia
