Thanks For Nothing

Seems I’m a minority within a minority and I’m not supported. Intuit, makers of the only half way decent business accounting software for Mac, Quickbooks, aren’t producing the Canadian version anymore. Mac market is smaller, Canadian market for Mac is even smaller. No go. Even worse, the 2005 version which I’m using was going fine but it hangs on Leopard and their only support notice is: upgrade.

So: Quickbooks > Quickbooks for Mac > Quickbooks for Mac on Leopard > Quickbooks for Mac on Leopard, Canadian Version > Me.

Any other software to recommend?


  1. It’s called Windows/Parallels/Simply Accounting, it’s a software solution that’s not fun nor friendly, but it works. And the accountant seems to like it.

  2. @jf : I don’t want to use online solutions for that and if I don’t find something all in one I’ll just use iBiz invoicing, I already own it.

    @cfd : ouin, si je fait ça ça va être avec Quickbooks encore parce que c’est ce que ma comptable utilise. On m’a dit récemment que VMware est rendu beauuuuuucoup mieux que Parallels. Opinion?

  3. Merci mais Billings c’est comme plusieurs autres solutions (iBiz, Blinksale) et c’est juste du invoicing, pas de “vrai” comptabilité (suivi de comptes bancaires, de dépenses, conciliation, etc.).

  4. Hi Patrick,

    I developed a web-based PHP application which ONLY does bookkeeping. It’s probably the most simple accounting software on the planet since it only allows you to manage 2 things: – income – expenses

    There is also a summary page which displays useful things like net/gross income, total taxes collected, etc.

    I still have a couple interfaces to complete, but if you want to try it let me know. It might be exactly what you’re looking for.

  5. I’d be interested in having a look but I want something that does it all and a desktop app, not a web app.

  6. J’essaye Moneydance pcq je trouve que Quicken ns neglige, users Mac. C’est ok, pas super cute, mais fonctionnel et rapide. ET cross-plateforme pcq ca roule avec Java (dealbreaker?)

    Etant donne que mon G4 est presque mort, je suis content de pouvoir prendre mon fichier MoneyDance et faire ma comptabilite sur ma machine Windows en attendant… bien pratique.
