Accounting Software for Freelancers

Jonathan says... We were fed up. Fed up with Quickbooks' lame Mac version, fed up with how much it cost and fed up with how we didn't understand any of it. Where Quickbooks was obviously made for accountants, LessAccouting was made for us normal folks. Dare I say we enjoy working with our money again? Well done, sirs. Well done.

Do you bill hourly or per project? We can accommodate for both.
