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.

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!


A complete personal finance application including
Account management
Budget Tracking module
Reporting module
Support to plug-in advanced modules

The core of the program will be kept as simple as possible to minimize unwanted bloat. This means that you don't have to worry about extras like budget tracking and reporting using up valuable resources if you don't want them or only use them occasionally.
