Key concepts such as profit and loss, cash flow and balance sheets are brought to life with Internet-based simulations that show how cash actually flows around the business.

The book also helps to explain how decisions such as pricing and advertising affect the bottom line and why financial disasters happen, such as the 2008 international banking crisis.

  • I can add clients
  • Create invoices
  • Create receipts
  • Create payments
  • Create linked accounts
  • Create products/services

If you are looking for a free solution to try before you splurge on your budget, Palladium Accounting Individual is the right software for you.
