If you have not heard of Basic Bookkeeping, you owe it to yourself to give it a try.  As one user wrote: 

"I purchased your Basic Bookkeeping program in February 2000.  I did have doubts whether to buy as I could find no one who knew about it. I just wanted you to know I love it!!  Thanks for an inexpensive, non-complicated, functional program."

Basic Bookkeeping is an accounting program for business owners , not accountants. Unlike double entry systems, Basic Bookkeeping's single entry method is intuitive. You simply enter your income and expenses. There are no credit, debits or other accounting jargon to worry about. If you have used "Dome" books (e.g., "Simplified Monthly Accounting", etc), you will be right at home with Basic Bookkeeping. The single entry method is well suited to small businesses including sole proprietors, partnerships and S-corporations. As Diane Benson of North Carolina wrote:

"I have used the Dome system for years. Your program is nothing short of a God-send for me."

Favoring functionality over glitzy graphics, the user interface reduces input time and errors. Many of our users have come to appreciate BBK's elegant simplicity after being frustrated by Quick Books and other bloated accounting systems. As one user wrote:

"Your program is exactly what I've needed. I've struggled with Quickbooks for a number of years. It is WAY more complicated than what I need. As a one-man business with perhaps twenty transactions per month, Basic bookkeeping is much better suited to my needs."

Basic Bookkeeping software main screen sampleBasic Bookkeeping features a set of comprehensive reports that are instantly available to help with business decisions. The reports are clear, concise and designed to organize income and expense information to support analysis of business activities, and preparation of taxes by either you or your accountant. Business success starts with intelligent money management and you can't know where you're going unless you know where you are.

Basic Bookkeeping allows users to customize their data entry through the use of data folders. Each folder may contain income and expense data for a single business, a division within a business, or an individual. Reports may be generated for a single folder or for any combination of folders. For example, a rental property owner who dedicated a data folder to each rental property could report income and expenses for each property individually and all properties together.

Print checks from Basic BookkeepingNew to Version 7, Basic Bookkeeping now allows users to print expense checks directly from within the program. Simply enter the expense amount, fill in the check and Basic Bookkeeping can print a check ready to be placed in a window envelop and mailed. Version 7 also adds the capability to track mileage and print a mileage log.

Basic Bookkeeping is linked to OWL Simple Business Invoicing and Inventory (SBII) management program which provides complete tracking of sales, customers, receivables and inventory. The combination of BBK and SBII provides a complete business management solution for many small businesses.
