    What accounting software do you use. I'm after something simple and user friendly. Thanks

    Hey!

    I used to use MYOB but now use Xero.

    I used to get really lazy with our bank rec's, but Xero has live bank feeds which makes life SO much easier! It's also web based so I can send invoices from anywhere.

    Not sure how much you're wanting to spend, but we pay $50/month.

    I know MYOB also has a similar thing called LiveAccounts that looks ok.

    Good luck!

    I use Quikbooks by Recon I think it is. It's a simpler version of MYOB basically but I find it a fantastic program. Its pretty cheap too. Certainly no complaints here.

    Going to look at transferring to Xero next financial year, it looks good

    I am going to have a look at Xero too! I find MYOB good but dated. Am I the only one?!

    We have just changed to Xero and find it really good. Helps with the cashflow too.
