jGnash is useful for keeping track of account balances and performing reconciliation. You can print checks, run simple reports, write your own scripts, and import QIF and OFX files.

Please take a look at the Technical Information if you are interested in what make jGnash tick behind the scenes.

jGnash is a double entry system, but you can make single entry transactions to support easy entry of adjustments to account balances. jGnash uses Accounts instead of Categories for double entry.

Double entry in jGnash works like most other commercial personal financial applications. You will not have to learn a new way of tracking your spending.

A double entry financial application should not have to emulate the old process of a paper ledger when the same results can be achieved using an easier process. This was the reason for creating jGnash... to develop a personal finance application that is easy to use, accurate, flexible, and free!

Goals
