The Best Tools for Keeping Track of Your Books

Use what works for you

Any good bookkeeper will tell you that bookkeeping is all about consistency and discipline in entering data. The best way to keep track of your books is whatever method you will actually focus on. If you do better with an Excel file or app you’ve used for years, use what you will keep up with.

Explore accounting software options

Most accounting software products offer free trials. Freshbooks, Wave, Xero, and Paddly are all well-known and well-reviewed. You can find video reviews, blog posts, and many other resources that dive into the ins and outs of these products. 

Consider Quickbooks

At Brookside, we often recommend that our clients use Quickbooks. It is fairly simple and built for the non-accountant.
