    Windows bigots like to spread the lie that "there is no accounting software for the Macintosh." So, a while back I started keeping a list of accounting programs for the Macintosh. It turns out that there are a bunch of accounting programs for the Macintosh, probably more than there are for Windows.

    - MoneyWorks
    (multiple versions available)
    (A very impressive full-featured accounting program. Probably the first one that you should look at as a replacement for QuickBooks.)

    I am in search of an accounting program for a small contracting business. I know that AccountEdge syncs with Dropbox. Do you know if any of the programs on your list also sync in the same (or similar) way?

    I need something that can be accessed and updated on iPad and iPhone from the field.

    I'm afraid that without contacting each individual company and asking, I don't know.

    I am also looking for accounting software, I look after the cheque accounts of two small sporting clubs and do not need a full blown package hopefully something that I can use to import data from bank sites with.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    It sounds like what you need is a personal finance application, rather than an accounting application. Like Quicken:
    Quicken® Essentials for Mac Personal Finance Software - Mac Financial Software
    However, many Mac users have expressed disappointment with the latest version of Quicken.

    There are about 30 competitors. I can send you a complete list if you like. But here are the top alternatives:

    MoneyDance $40
    Moneydance® 2010 - Personal Finance Manager for Mac, Windows, and Linux
    MoneyDance Mobile (free)
    Moneydance for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    iCompta (about $20)
    iCompta : personal finance application for Mac OS X
    iCompta : personal finance application for Mac OS X
    There is a mobile companion version of iCompta for the iPhone/iPad, which syncs with the desktop version. ($5)
    iComptaMobile : Personal finance application for iOS
    iCompta 2 Personal Finance for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    iBank $60
    iBank | Mac finance software, personal money management and small business application for OS X
    iBank Mobile $5
    iBank Mobile | mobile finance app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch - add transactions, check accounts, sync to iBank 4 for Mac

    SEE Finance $30
    Scimonoce Software

    iFinance $29
    Synium - iFinance
    iFinance Mobile for iPhone $2
    Synium - iFinance Mobile

    MoneyWell $50
    MoneyWell - Personal Finance Software for Mac and iPhone
    MoneyWell for iPhone $10
    MoneyWell - Personal Finance Software for iPhone

    Randy thanks for the links, I have tried most of the trial versions and it looks like Moneywell will be the one I will go with.

    Thanks for letting me know. It seems that MoneyWell and MoneyWorks are both really popular.

    Accounting software that prints checks
    Hi All,

    This is a great resource. Does anyone happen to know if you can print checks from any of the software? I am a newly Mac convert.

    Thanks,

    What is best best book keeping software for a startup using Mac OS X?
    Startup. Bootstrapping. I prefer to make a one-time investment in software than to incur a monthly recurring fee for something cloud based. I'm all about eliminating monthly fees lately. I have few requirements other than it be OS X; however I have Parallels so can run QuickBooks if that ends up being the only player in town, still. Should be simple to use. iPhone app version a plus but not required.

    Thanks for any help.

    Sorry, Katie, I didn't see your post until now.

    I don't know if you are asking for a full business accounting program that can print checks, or a personal finance program that can print checks. I'm assuming that you meant the latter. If you meant the former, let me know.

    The following can print checks:

    MoneyDance $40
    Moneydance® 2011 - Personal Finance Manager for Mac, Windows, and Linux

    iBank $60
    iBank | IGG Software, Inc. | Mac finance software, personal money management and small business applications for OS X

    iFinance $29
    Synium - iFinance

    Quicken $50

    .
    From the term "startup" I'm assuming that you are asking which is the best business accounting program for the Mac. (i.e. not a personal finance program.)

    I'd recommend QuickBooks/Mac, which is a pretty nice program, but so many Mac users are fed up with Intuit that I can't really recommend it.

    There at a ton of Mac business accounting programs. I can send you the entire list via personal e-mail if you like. But the one that seems to be by far the most popular right now is:

    - MoneyWorks
    (multiple versions available based on business requirements)
    MoneyWorks: Seriously Good Accounting Software
    When you register MoneyWorks, they will send your accountant a free
    copy!

    Free video tutorials:
    Moneyworks Cashbook Tutorial - Introduction - YouTube
    Moneyworks Cashbook Tutorial 2 - Receipts, Payments, Budgets & Reporting - YouTube

    Also popular:

    - Accounted $70
    Accounted | Real Accounting Made Easy

    - AccountEdge Basic $99
    AccountEdge Basic | Basic accounting for Mac small business

    - AccountEdge Pro $299
    AccountEdge | Small business accounting for Mac

    A program that I think is often overlooked, but which should be considered:

    - TinyBooks $ 69
    A simple, flexible, non-bloated, single-entry bookkeeping and accounting system for the Macintosh. TinyBooks is designed for Sole Proprietors, home and other small businesses.

    When I swtitched to Apple I installed Windows under Parallels for two apps: OneNote and Windows Quicken. I have used Quicken for years and needed continuity with past records, and it works great for maintaining my business and our family accounts. Downloads from bank, writes cheques, lots of reporting options. I use it in conjunction with Windows Internet Explorer. Not double entry, and I have no experience with Quickbooks.

    I did extensive googling hoping to go all-Apple, but from what I could tell Quicken for Windows was The most full-featured, best developed and supported. Just my personal observation.
    Longtime Windows, then onto slippery slope with iPod/iTunes in 2006, then Apple TV, iPad, iMac, iPhone, rejuvenated a discarded MacBook and, finally, Apple Watch. Happy camper.

    So, which is the best full DOUBLE-ENTRY bookkeeping software to manage both HOME/PERSONAL finances (with investments account for istance) and SMALL BUSINESS finances (customer, supplier, invoice, ...), highly CUSTOMIZABLE (fields, reports)?
    Any alternative to GnuCash?
    Thanks
