I am a sole proprietor and have used owl basic bookkeeping software for many years. Its a single entry system that makes posting to an expense or income account a breeze. It keeps track of mileage, how a payment is made, invoice numbers and memos. Profit & loss and account info is also easy to access. I print out my ledger at the end of the year for my tax parperer and never had a problem . I’m so glad for this bookkeeping software.

The Good…

The program is easy to understand, especially for a beginner new to bookkeeping. I’ve never had a problem understanding it.

The Bad…

Nothing
