Simply Accounting Basic's Home Window, with its better menus for access to the program's general ledger, customer, vendor, employee and project-tracking capabilities, now can be easier used than the previous versions. An improved wizard provides more help with setting up a new company.
A larger payroll-check window enhances your view of income and deduction fields. If you use Simply Accounting Basic to prepare payroll, for efficiency's sake you should think for subscribing to the optional payroll tax table update service for $279 per year.
Simply Accounting Basic will undauntedly attract the bargain-hunting bean counters that tend to each bean carefully. Its features match up to most closely with those of Intuit's QuickBooks Pro edition, which costs $200-four times as much as Simply Accounting Basic. QuickBooks' entry-level Simple Start costs twice as much ($100) and delivers far less accounting power.
If you're currently using a spreadsheet (Excel) or a personal finance application (Quicken) to track business finances, you'll discover that Simply Accounting Basic 2006 represents a reasonable step up from what you work with now. Its improved import/export wizard simplifies importing data from Excel, Quicken, QuickBooks, and MYOB.
The added capabilities make this version a valuable upgrade for existing Simply Accounting Basic users and the low price will lure some Intuit users to switch their commitment.
