    "Would be great, Would buy... but"

    September 23, 2013  |   By Lomaxra

    Version: Express Accounts Free 4.66

    Pros

    Intuitive, flexible, customizable, affordable, great interface and great reports.

    Cons

    Is not displaying all the accounts with balances in the Balance Sheet Report or the Trial Balance Report although I can view them in the ledger. Completely wasted my time setting everything up.

    Summary

    Shame, I think this has to be one of the best accounting programs around...free or otherwise but...it is not displaying all of my entries...I don't know if this a limitation of the free version or not, but there is no technical support for the free version (understandable) and I am not going to purchase it to see if it then works better... or not.

    "Not very accurate information"

    May 14, 2013  |   By jakebe2

    Version: Express Accounts Free 4.66

    Pros

    Easy to set up and use.

    Cons

    Has shown several inaccuracies. I discovered the program had assigned the same order number and invoice number to at least two different customer orders. Then, when looking at one customers unpaid invoice report it shows a balance of $45 yet the customer actually has two open invoices for $25 each. How does $25 plus $25 equal $45?

    Summary

    I'm not satisfied with what I'm finding with this program. I was wanting just a very simple way to record accounts receivable for a little sideline business and thought this would be perfect but if it adds $25 and $25 and comes up with $45 I'm not sure it's what I want after all.

    "Should have searched for more reviews"

    February 24, 2013  |   By mikeintorlundy

    Version: Express Accounts Free 4.62

    Pros

    I cannot find any pros.

    Cons

    It simply does not work reliably, failing to enter transactions in the Journal, does not show payees etc. Their support emailed back a couple of useless responses then dried up.

    I am not new to accounting software and this is the worst piece of software I have come across

    Summary

    Still looking for a good package for a small business to replace my ageing MS Money now MS no longer support it.

    Wish I had never purchase Express Accounts. The trial looked OK so I went ahead and purchased and then found all the holes in it.

    There does not seem to be any sensibly priced software for a small non VAT registered UK business that does not use the cloud. Not all of us have fast reliable connections so cannot trust cloud applications.

    "BEWARE !!!"

    January 18, 2013  |   By Mac-Gal

    Version: Express Accounts Free 4.52

    Pros

    Accounting & Invoicing In Single Application, Internet Access From Multiple Locations.

    Cons

    DISHONEST COMPANY, THEY WILL NOT REFUND YOUR MONEY EVEN WHEN THEY PROMISE TO.

    Summary

    I'm an Apple dealer and service provider. I was looking for a quick and simple cash based accounting program that also did invoicing and could be accessed from more than one office. I thought this program would fit the bill. I downloaded the supposedly free version but you get no support (including the ability to ask pre-sales questions). I unfortunately made the mistake of purchasing the program, the invoicing app as well as a service contract in the hopes that they would answer questions. Upon receiving the purchase confirmation I was informed that the "support" only allowed a minimal number of technical questions, and that once the program was activated I could not request a refund. Not my idea of a reliable company to deal with, especially where your company's finances are concerned. Furthermore, they NEVER respond to a support request. Therefore, I immediately requested a refund, which I was told would be processed in 10-14 days (even though THEY TOOK MY MONEY IMMEDIATELY)! It has now been nearly 6 weeks and despite multiple eMail demanding my refund and their form responses telling me over and over again it will be processed in 10-14 days I STILL HAVE NOT RECEIVED MY MONEY BACK. Find another software app because this company is dishonest to the point of absurdity.

    "Dishonest Pricing, Poor support response"

    January 2, 2013  |   By mrgrumpypyrmont

    Version: Express Accounts Free 4.62

    Pros

    Quite feature rich

    Cons

    There pricing and upgrade costs are completely hidden.

    I cannot recommend this package at all based on this single most annoying feature. It suggests that you upgrade but at no stage does it mention that you need to repurchase the licence, it just stops working. You are then left with the only options of paying more or downgrading to the same version that you originally purchased.

    Summary

    Do not buy this product unless you are prepared to pay more than say Quickbooks or MYOB over a 12 mth period.

    "Shame on CNET Editor's! With Virus filled addons!"

    December 27, 2012  |   By TrueRevu

    Version: Express Accounts Free 4.62

    Pros

    Maybe free! But it's just a trojan software for people to download (free of viruses). Then for it to "recommend" addon software upon installation that has a worm virus. This POS (and I'm not referring to Point of Sale) tried to infect my machine. Thank God it ran it sandboxed. And still my anti-virus picked it up and forced my pc to reboot to clean the virus. I lost some unsaved documents because of it. Only reason why I even looked at this software was because of Cnet's Editor's high ratings. And for what to get a nasty virus. Stay away! I've used download.com for over 10 years and never registered. Today because of this POS, it tickeed me off so bad I registered to write this review. Download.com has become a joke. Shame, it was good while it lasted.

    Cons

    Yeah, big con, it's a front end to another "recommended" download while installing to a worm virus. How nice! Isn't it?

    Summary

    Avoid like the plague.

    "Not suitable for Cash Accounting"

    October 31, 2012  |   By RodFarrell

    Version: Express Accounts Free 4.52

    Pros

    I've been very happy with other NCH products and was keen to try this one. Having worked with a number of accounting systems I have to say this is one of the most intuitive and easy to use. Has most features that a small business wants except for one critical one as outlined below which makes it useless for most small businesses in Australia.

    Cons

    There appears to be no way to choose your accounting method. The software presumes you are using the accruals method but in Australia most small businesses choose to use cash accounting so none of the reports provided, including tax reports, will be correct which is a real shame for such a nice product.

    The Help file has no search feature so you will have to read the lot to find what you want.

    As pointed out above the website goes out of its way to trick you into downloading the trial version even though the free one is there if you look hard enough. The companies comment above is not quite true (and is downright rude). You actually have to search the site to find the free link on another page because its not on the main product page.

    Summary

    Really well designed product, targeted at small business but because of the lack of cash accounting abilities is unsuited to most small businesses, at least in Australia.
