I'm in need of some light weight book keeping software or template spreadsheets to help me through beinning book keeping for a new small business.

I don't know much about accounting, but am confident I can pick up the basics if I've got some sort of format to follow.

Posting here in the hope that someone can help!?

Depending on your needs, QuickBooks does offer a version of Simple Start for free. It is rather limited in it's functions, but if your just starting out, that's not always a bad thing.   http://tinyurl.com/5gwgod

They also have a few different free online versions.    http://tinyurl.com/ygh2uox
