I'm working on a hosting business and need a place to start recording expenditures (and one day, revenues :-) WHMCS will take care of client accounting, etc., but I want a place to write down that I spent $X this month on hosting, $X to register a domain, paid $X for advertising, etc.
I don't want to sink $180+ into QuickBooks at this stage of the game.
I've been looking at Ledger SMB
, which is a free self-hosted, web-based product. I'm sure it doesn't have all the bells and whistles, but really all I need is a place to write down expenses and attach documentation, in case I'm ever audited.
Someone also mentioned Outright to me, though I really would prefer self-hosted.
I have had several accounting classes and while I'm no CPA, I'm reasonably conversant in the basics. At this point, I could probably do things in Excel.
Just curious what others use.
