There is generally a lot of excitement that goes along with starting your own business.
If it has only been a dream for years, seeing this being realised through the opening of an office or finally setting up a home office is an inspiring milestone.
You’re raring to go but … you have not yet given too much thought to the management of your financials.
Other small business owners have advised you to steer clear of free accounting software, instead urging you to invest in tried and tested accounting software.
This makes good business sense for a start-up entrepreneur. Making sound financial decisions from the get-go is very important for the long-term health of your company.
Proper accounting software is an important partner in a small business because the success of your company hinges mainly on three factors: sales and marketing, finance and administration and operations.
You didn’t start your business to fail. You want to grow, prosper and even possibly create employment opportunities for others.
While all good intentions may be there from the start, crunching the numbers is not your strong point and you feel frustrated and anxious about the financial health of your business.
If you don’t have a clear picture of this, you may be hampering the growth of your business and missing out on important opportunities. After all, you can’t manage what you can’t measure!
There is no reason for a small business owner to be struggling, even if financials are not your thing. Get help!
So, what is the best accounting software for someone who is self-employed?
There are dozens to choose from so it is important to know what your business needs out of the accounting software and what features will benefit you most.
Who better to give you advice than us – as we were once a small business too!
EasyBiz Technologies believes these are the Top 10 features to look out for when choosing the best accounting software for a self-employed concern:
- Offers a free trial.
- Automatic bank feeds.

At EasyBiz Technologies, we understand that not every small business owner likes to put an accounting hat on. In fact, for some it is an epic struggle to stay on top of their financials and keep accurate records.
Tax season can be especially stressful, but being SARS compliant and running a tight ship when it comes to income and expenses are part and parcel of running a small business.
The good news is that you do not have to do it on your own. Accounting software has evolved tremendously over the years and today packages like those available from EasyBiz Technologies are designed to help small business owners not only survive, but thrive.
