  • 'bit miffed that my custom reports were not imported during the upgrade to version 3.1. But, as ever, GNUCash is a great piece of accopunting software which I have been using for more than 10 years for the household accounts.

  • Version 3. has a reported trojan

  • Version 3 with the ellipsis tabs is very annoying/and poorly implemented. Other graphical elements seem to be improved.

  • My data is finally fully available to me. Wish I had switched to GnuCash earlier.

  • I have been using GnuCash for more than five years. Through the forums, support is excellent and searches of the web generally provide me with what I need to resolve issues. My difficulties with the package are caused through not having a formal accounting background rather than GNUCash shortcomings. When I do (finally) get a strategy for resolving an issue, GNUCash does it elegantly and efficiently. The latest for me was after I entered payment of invoices through reconciling with my bank statement instead of through the Business section. The result was a balanced reconciliation with invoices showing as unpaid. It took me a while to get the terminology right in my searches but GNUCash gave me an easy path once I knew what to do. For the uninitiated, there is a steep learning curve but this is around the subject matter, not the package. It is a powerful app which has many fail safes. Reading of the difficulties others have had, most seemed linked to misunderstanding what is being attempted. GNUCash is best learnt through the many tutorials and a clear understanding about what the user wants to do. It is intuitive but it deals with a subject that is not - tracking what is happening with finances.

  • Gnucash has to be one of the best accounting packages available, certainly in the open source and free software categories. It may not be customized to a particular country's tax system, legal and business framework as many commercial packages are but it does have the flexibility to be used world wide, supports Generally Accepted Accounting Practice and can be readily customized for individual requirements.

  • I have used money management software for years. I have used Microsoft Money & Quicken. I switched to Gnucash about five years ago, because I wanted more control over where the data is stored and who has access to account information. Gnucash provides that over the other software I have used. It does take a bit getting used to the way Gnucash manages accounts and imports data. But, if you take the time to read the manual, and test your own data, you will actually come to appreciate the care and detail provided by this package.

  • Seems really focused towards a retail business. I was looking for something to manage my farm. There is no simple way to track Individual animals or equipment.

  • Enhancing the standing of facebook business account is very easy at this point. Buying Facebook fan page "Followers" can be described as the latest trick within this question.

  • Een compleet en gemakkelijk te gebruiken gratis boekhoudprogramma. Elke ondernemer die zelf zijn boekhouding doet moet GnuCash serieus overwegen als zijn boekhoudprogramma.

  • Considering the cost of most accounting software and the idea of fee's or storing your data on a cloud system (which I don't want to do) this program is great. The positives: Biggest one (ITS FREE) it does everything I need it to do and more for my small business. Great client and other reports the option to invoice and the ability to split transactions for detailed tracking and checking account reconciliation. Sales tax tracking and adjustments are easy to do. The Drawbacks: A little difficult to learn how to use. The invoice interface is clumsy and I can't get the invoices to look the way I want them too. Over all I would recommend this program to anyone with a small business who needs to track cash flow, expenses, costs and organize their data for tax filing.

  • Using this for more than a year for my personal accounting. Though there were some issues with QIF importing, reports and the Mobile version, now (v2.6.6) it works good. This is a great tool which I enjoy using, thank you!

  • I use it mainly for Accounts Receivable and Invoicing. Business functions like Process Payment have been greatly improved in the last few iterations. The only draw back is the VERY awkward process of changing the look of the invoices. There are great big white spaces around all the items in the header, so fully a third of my invoice is header. System works well, recommend it

  • Excellente

  • I use GnuCash for personal accounts, and also for company accounts and invoicing. The features are great, and usability is improving all of the time, but is more than usable as is with a bit of trial and error.

  • Russian localisation v2.6.6 crashed in WinXP sp3 in a moment of creating new database file in menu New book settings (on russian) and press Enter (next).

  • Was using another program and decided to test this. Love how, after the accounts are set up, entering transactions was very easy. The auto fill type of feature with memory is very helpful. Scheduled transactions worked on time, every time. However what killed this for me now is that there is no note field on the individual transactions. There is a way to link to external text files etc., however I found it too time consuming for all those little transaction notes. Also the main database file that is being used is very sensitive to any change like moving it to another folder etc. If this is done the file does not open in the program anymore. I had to start from scratch 3 or 4 times because I forgot and moved it, or changed its name and then changed it back. Frustrating. However overall other then that it shows a lot of promise and I will watch it to see if improvements are made. Might be nice one day.

  • Thats remarkable

  • Excellent

  • Its excellent to use. Thanks for sharing this.

  • I am trying to move away from the popular commercial product due to the bugs and costly upgrades due to planned obsolescence. It is very different from the program that was I using. It will take me a while to learn how to use Gnucash but eventually I'll get it (I hope). Thank you developers .

  • From the version 2.6.4 (including 2.6.5) doesn't show reports at all. Just a blank tab! :(

  • Like another user, I could not even get gnuCash to import the QIF file from my existing program (MoneyDance). It goes through the various stages, and I can see my import data being processed, but when I hit the final APPLY button, the program just closes with no message - nothing. Pretty disappointing to fail like this before it even gets started.
