Easy Books: Accounting
By Geode Software
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Easy Books is professional business bookkeeping, invoicing and time-tracking for iPad, iPhone and Mac.
It includes comprehensive in-app help and space for 60 transactions so you can see if you like it. You can update to unlimited transactions by taking out a subscription to one of our pricing plans.
Easy Books is ideal for small businesses and 'one man bands'. Keep track of all your bank accounts, customers, suppliers, sales and purchase invoices, expenses, earnings and assets (including depreciation). For bank and credit card accounts, you can reconcile your statements in the app.
Entering information is easy and the app features a built-in calculator, pre-filled forms and common linked accounts based on previous entries to help save you time. You can also save time when entering similar transactions by duplicating an existing transaction and setting the date.
Set recurring transactions to match your standing orders (such as monthly insurance payments). Easy Books automatically creates these transactions as they become due according to your schedule.
Lock the Easy Books app using a four-digit pass-code and Touch ID. This is useful if you want to lend your phone to someone, but you don't want them to use Easy Books.
A full double-entry accounting package that not only maintains the accounts, but also performs financial reports such as:
* Profit and Loss (accrual or cash basis)
* Balance Sheet
* Cash Flow
* Trial Balance
* VAT return (cash, standard or flat rate)
* Customers' and Suppliers' Aged Debt
* Monthly breakdown and budget analysis
All reports can be exported from the app in either HTML, CSV or ZIP format. Reports can then be imported into other applications such as Excel or Numbers.
Invoices and delivery notes are generated in PDF format. Send these by email direct to your customer, print them or send them to other apps such as Dropbox. Set the company logo, addresses, payment terms and so on to customise the invoice for your business. Once purchased, the DRAFT watermark is removed for every invoice you send. You can also prepare your customer statements in PDF format as well.
Transactions can split over many lines if you require, so for example, if you raise a sales invoice for a customer, you can add a separate line for each item on the invoice.
Value Added Tax
Add any number of sales and purchase VAT accounts, each with a specific rate. Easy Books automatically calculates the amounts for you.
Enter amounts in a foreign currency and Easy Books will keep track of any realised and unrealised gains due to exchange rate variations over time.
Backup and Restore
Backing up is easy, simply tap the backup option and send the data file to yourself in an email or transfer it to another app such as iCloud Drive or Dropbox. To restore it just tap the attachment to open in Easy Books.
All pricing plans come with access to our Online Syncing service for continuous online backup and to synchronise all changes you make with every device whether Mac or iOS.
You can share access to your books with your accountant. This allows them to check your accounts for accuracy, fix mistakes, complete your tax calculation and handle your year end.
What's New in Version 11
• Attachments. For Gold Plan customers, attach photos, PDF and text documents to transactions, estimates and statements. When you prepare an estimate, attach your calculations so you can refer to it if you need to. Take photos of receipts and attach them to your expense entries. And when you've reconciled a statement, attach the bank's copy as source information.
• Added drag & drop support. Drag from Contacts into the Customers screen or drag transactions into Files or Notes to store a PDF.
• Updates to UI for search and calculator.
I have posted regular reviews of this app since I first started using it on my iPad and Mac. This is hands-down the best accounting app available. Another organization I work with uses the software from the “big guy on the block” and that software drives me insane. This one works, and works as advertised. A few notes.
Yes, it costs money to use this app. But it is no more expensive than any other full-featured accounting system, especially one that allows cloud-based sharing of data across all of my devices. Yes, the price has gone up since I first started using it. But so has the feature set. No it is not free to use. If it were free, I wouldn’t trust it to run my businesses. Even were I to pay for every add-on, it is still a bargain.
Yes, there are features I’d love to see. Are any of them deal breakers? Not so far. I’ve tried software from others who claim to have those features, and never stayed away long. Bells and whistles are just that - bells and whistles. What I want and need is solid accounting software. This is exactly what Easy Books is.
Easy Books is real accounting, based on real accounting principles. It doesn’t try to hide things from me. If you take the time to learn about real accounting instead of those other guys’ “simplified” accounting, you’ll have no problems using this software. In my opinion, if you don’t understand real accounting, you have no business owning a business. But that is just my opinion, though it has been proven correct time and time again.
(Stepping down off my soapbox. LOL)
The new version is great already, and I’ve only had it a day. I’m already using the attachments feature, which I had to upgrade to use. However, that upgrade price is less than the price I was paying for another receipt archiving utility, so I saved money. Otherwise, I’ve noticed a general improvement in the interface and the speed.
Support is good, though often slow, mostly due to the time difference across the big pond. But I’ve never had an issue that I couldn’t resolve with their help archives and/or an email exchange.
Which brings up my best point in favor of Easy Books. I haven’t thought about my accounting software in years. I open it. I use it. I go about the rest of my day. That, alone, is worth every penny I spend on it and the highest praise that I can give any software/app.
