Editors' Review


The name Express Accounts Free Accounting Software pretty much sums up this freeware from NCH: it's a basic but flexible accounting package suitable for small businesses and organizations, and even some that are not so small. It integrates with other NCH business software, and it's also available, at a cost, in a Pro version that offers extra features. However, Express Accounts Free does what most users need most often, such as create and manage invoices, payments, and receipts; report income and earnings; create balance sheets; track orders and supplies; and manage customer contacts.

During installation, a wizard walked us through the process of setting up Express Accounts Free for our hypothetical business and contacts. Express Accounts Free has a familiar look, with toolbar, main view, and left-hand navigation sidebar. This software uses a series of dialogs and wizards to create invoices, bills, receipts, and other documents as well as manage accounts and settings. The navigation pane's expandable categories lead to menus labeled Todo, Transactions, Customer Invoices, Supplier Orders, and Reports, each with subentries for functions like creating documents, managing accounts, recording transactions, and issuing reports. The main view also features the program's various functions grouped by categories, and an icon-based toolbar offers access to the program's primary tools as well as Web access, Options, and a button labeled Suite that accessed other NCH software that works with Express Accounts. We clicked Create New Invoice, and a pop-up dialog opened with various entry fields, drop-down menus, and tables ready to fill in with our data; brief explanations of many of the fields appeared when we hovered the cursor over them. We tried several other standard forms as well as the reporting tools, and all opened with easy-to-use wizards that made the job a snap.

Express Accounting Free seems accurate, which we expected, and intuitive, which we didn't. This may be the friendliest accounting package we've yet come across. Small business owners, bookkeepers, and entrepreneurs owe it to their bottom lines to try Express Accounting Free before plunking down cash on big-ticket software, deductible or not.

"Trial Balance does not even balance."

September 30, 2014  |  By jillpunter21

 |  Version: Express Invoice Invoicing Software Free 4.10






Firstly I bought the program in 2012, and have now bought 3 more upgrades to try to solve the glitches! Trial Balance does not balance, Accounts payable does not match balance sheet, if you delete a payment beware as it is still in the journals, accounts receivable inaccurate, Customer balances inaccurate (you have to press recalculate balance), no customer report with all the fields ie email address, cannot type date in on invoice screen have to select calendar and go round the houses. I could go on but I have spent enough time on this c*^ppy program. What makes me even angrier at present is that Pcworld and currys are selling it!!! Oh and my customers are now refusing to pay as they cannot rely on my totals!

"Great Option"

August 29, 2014  |  By HeavySoftwareUser

 |  Version: Express Invoice Invoicing Software Free 4.10


For what I use this software for, basic invoices to my customers, I haven't had to pay a dime. After downloading this I checked out some of NCH's other products and am really a fan-boy now.


Nothing to crazy, except that the interfaces could use some modernization.
