  • Easy to learn and use

    • Works just like Word, Excel and Outlook
    • Get started in minutes with wizards that import your data

  • Save time managing everyday tasks

    • Share and reuse data across Word, Excel and Outlook
    • Manage customers, suppliers, employees and stock
    • Pay bills, track expenses, send invoices and bank online
  • Get a complete view of your business

    • Run customisable reports so you always know how you’re doing
    • See all your important data in one glance with the Digital Dashboard
    • Get reminders of important deadlines, pending bills and overdue invoices

One thing of interest for Microsoft Money users in the UK is that is does NOT support import of a Money file.

New articles to in recent weeks

Haven't done one of these updates in a while, so below is a list of new articles to the site in recent weeks (well, months).

I have a few articles which are on my list to write, but any suggestions for new ones are always welcome. Don't forget I am based in the UK, so things such as IRAs, the US tax system etc may prove difficult for me to write. However, submitted articles (so long as they fit in the general ethos of the site) are welcome.

The date below is the date I created the article. It may have gone through a revision since the original creation date.
