Hello POTN,

As we all know when we upgrade computers and operating systems old accounting software no longer work. I am looking for new software and came across some that happen to be free "Wave" www.waveapps.com (external link)

Also quicken 2014 home & business has a 40% off sale at $68


Since there are so many photographers here, what do you all use?

I searched "accounting software" and the last post was in 2012!
Please respond with a link to the software you use and a few major benefits if possible.

I look forward to the responses.


Thanks!

My primary criteria is "What does my accountant recommend?". He's familiar with QuickBooks. So, assuming you don't have an accountant, I guess I would be asking myself "Can the data in the software I'm considering be easily exported to QuickBooks if I later hire an accountant?" - your accountant might be able to get to the data in some non-standard software package but in the end you will end up paying for the extra time required. If you later have to migrate to QB then you have bought software twice and will have had to learn two different packages. So I'd put a crowbar to my wallet and get QB to start with.

I've been running QuickBooks Basic 2002... apparently for 12 years. I have it running today on my Windows 7 (64-bit) machine without any issues.

I've never used it to produce reports or anything of that nature, but rather as an invoicing/estimate generating tool.

I have an Excel workbook that I generated years ago, to which I enter my sales and purchases (different tabs) on a quarterly basis (also different tabs). At the end of the year I print each of these quarterly statements, along with the yearly summary page and provide them to whomever does my tax prep. I had been using the same person for tax prep for the past ~10 years, but he has retired as of last year. This will be the first year that I use someone else to do my tax prep, but I have all intentions to provide the same information. We'll see what he has to say about it...


I use manual exposure settings on the copy machine

I was using QuickBooks 2006 until I upgraded to Windows 7. Had to upgrade to the latest 2011 at the time. Now that QuickBooks 2001 is still working for Windows 8. It's just what happens with anything.... give it 10 to 12 years or even less and all our cameras will be dinosaurs to. :D

Thanks everyone for the responses. I'll stick to quickbooks. A great deal at $68 for the 2014 H&B.
