Accounts RECEIVABLE Software for 1 person

Posted on 2011-04-23

Hi All - We are looking for some "easy to use" software to keep track of Billing, Payments received, etc. (If it runs on a Mac, great, if not, we have Windows also).
We have been trying out QuickBooks Pro 2011 for Windows ... and though we like it, it is a little over-kill for what we need.
Can anyone make any recommendations for Account Receivable/Billing/Invoicing software besides the obvious "we like Quickbooks" <smiles>  ?

Thx all

    The two smallest accounting packages with Invoices and Accounts Receivable are QuickBooks and Simply Accounting. I like and use QuickBooks.

    To get less functionality and less cost, you need to look at Excel or open source software.

    Take a look at  

    It says it does invoicing and A/R and works on Windows, MAC and Linux.

    I agree, Quickbooks will provide fast access to invoices, and A/R. It also runs on a Mac. I've used it for twelve years and it works very well.

    Look into It is a free online accounting solution that is now owned by Intuit, the makers of QuickBooks. Since it's online, I would think you could access from a Mac, but not sure.
