Why is Free Accounting Software free?

Free Accounting Software is a genuinely free accounting software. It's free, forever, with free support. Considering the price that others charge for the same thing we are often asked questions such as the following:

FAQ 1 - How much does it cost?

Nothing it's free as the name says. We also provide free telephone and email support.

FAQ 2 - How do you make money?

Free Accounting Pty Ltd is a Chartered Accounting practice and we make money by providing quality accounting services such as tax returns and payroll services. These services are not free but are priced very affordably. You are not required to use our accounting services although by doing so your helping us continue to provide the software for free.

Even if you do not use our accounting services, your welcome to join and use the software for free. We generally find that most users are very happy with the software and support and tell a lot of other people about us, which results in more users and more clients for us anyway.

You can help us out by telling other people about the software, linking to our website or using our accounting services.

FAQ 3 - So why did you make it free?

As a Chartered Accounting practice we need great software for ourselves and our clients. We felt that most of the commercial software available is expensive and the features are more focused on what sells rather than keeping good accounting records. We therefore built our own accounting software so that it suits our needs.

We've also made the software available to all Australian micro businesses to use for free. We like to see micro businesses owners, the hard working people having go, being successful and part of this is keeping good accounting records.
