    I’m looking for an accounting package to do basic bookkeeping functions for a small charity I support. As it’s a charity I’m looking for something FREE and simple that any committee member can figure out.
    Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Thanks for your help, the Apache OFBiz looks interesting.

    Another vote for Wave.

    The ONLY downside is that their payments are only done through Stripe, you can’t use PayPal. But you can pull PayPal feeds in for reconciling.

    +1 for Manager

    I have been using it for a bit over 12 months now and love it. So easy to use and everything can be customised.

    Hi

    I found WAVE to be the best. I tried XERO but didn’t find value for money for a small start-up business. I also use spreadsheets a lot.

    Cheers

    How complex is your accounting?
    If simple enough
    Just drop your statements onto a CSV file and manipulate it from there.

    I worked with GnuCash when we first started in business, as it’s free, but struggled a little with the setup. FYI, it’s also available for Windows :)
