I specialise in working with small charities and social enterprises. Often these types of organisation need to account for different projects or "pots of money" such as different grants but other than that have relatively simple accounting requirements.
I like Quickbooks as this has the capacity to account for different projects using "classes" and "subclasses", sage does similar using departments although I find to be less user friendly. The cost of these software packages has increased in recent years and these software packages are packed with many features often which are not necessary.
There seem to be a number of cheap or free software packages out there (e.g. the VT cashbook, gnucash), but I can't see that these packages have the facility to account for different income streams.
Can anyone recommend cheap software that has the facility to account for different projects?
thanks in advance,
