  1. If you can use Linux there are some floating around but even there there
    are charges involved.

    Quickbooks Basic is the cheapest or Simply Accounting.

    I am looking for the cheapest software available that will let me do
    double-entry accounting, Balance sheets and Income statements. I've been
    looking on the web, but all I can find are feature-packed mega-accounting
    sofwtare. I'd be happy with an Excel spreadsheet that has already been
    built, but I can't even find that.

    If I can't find anything, I guess Ill just put my numbers in Excel and be
    done with it, but there must be some freeware floating around, no?

    there is a reason why you can't find what you're looking for - simple
    double entry accounting can get complicated, even with excel spreadsheets -
    ask any accountant!
    What do you plan to do with it?

    Well, I have an ridiculously small (and mostly inactive) small business.
    It's to keep track of things and make it easier (and therefore cheaper) for
    my accountant to do the more involved things he does every year. I think
    Ill have to do with Excel though, from the looks of it.

    You can get a lot of free accounting programs at

    You can use them free, but there will be a message printed at the bottom of
    the page "printed on a trial version."
    If you want to get rid of that message, then there is a small cost.
    However, the message does no harm and will not make the program any less

    There's a pretty nice accounting program called GnuCash, that
    is mostly based on double-entry accounting, and is free.
    However, it runs on Mac OS/X or Linux, but not Windows (as far
    as I know). They may be working on a Windows version, though.
    You can find out more at if you want.
