Thanks, nice to see a local Canadian Company
Sage has great, free, online versions of some of their tools, including Billing Boss, which allows you to create invoices online, send them, track them, and even have people pay them via paypal. You can check it out at http://www.billingboss.com/
I just started working at a social enterprise. We do everything in excel. Simply Accounting would so helpful!
This is truly a simple program for the self-employed business owner!
I’d be happy to check out this software.
I have been without a money tracking software for awhile now. Last one I used was Microsoft Money.
Wow, what an awesome giveaway!!!
Thinking about taking my very small business to the next level in 2011!
I want this sooo bad! I am currently starting my own small business and trying to organize everything is overwhelming! This would be a great tool to get me going! I would LOVE to win this! AHH!
Word, very useful product.
This would be a huge help for a super organized year ahead!!
I could use an updated simply accounting version. I nearly switched to quickbooks because it’s online BUT the online version of quickbooks doesn’t support multiple currencies. I would like to see Simply moved to a hosted solution too. Would make my life easier.
This is a very awesome & practical giveaway!
Perfect timing for giving away this highly recommended product!
Would love to win this excellent product giveaway!
Agree with Mary – this would be perfect timing for me if I was to win this product!
I’ve received mixed feedback on Quickbooks, would love to try out Simply Accounting.
Great idea for a giveaway, I used this program at work and it is good – would love to have a copy for my new small business 🙂
This would sure come in handy !!!
This software looks intuitive for non-accountants.
Wow this is exactly what I am looking for! Great giveaway. <3
The software looks very useful.
Good accounting software is something every small business should have straight from the get-go. But it can also be quite a task trying to find the best product. Not only is there the cost of purchase which can feel tough to justify in those initial days where funds are scarce, but there’s also the time it takes to learn and properly evaluate free trials that are available from most suppliers. And once you’ve been using a package for a while, it can be extremely difficult to switch if it doesn’t do something you need down the road.
It’s nice to see an option made by a Canadian firm that seems to offer a wide range of features. This looks like a solid product and would definitely be worthy of consideration if you are planning on starting, or already have, your small business.
Would be a great present for anyone who runs a home business!
Would love to win this!
I know somebody who would love this!
wow, perfect timing… was just thinking about getting started doing my taxes!
Would love help with my taxes this year.
Awesome giveaway! I’ve been doing everything manually for the last few years and this would be a huge help!
My doggies sure would love some new software to keep them organized!
Wow, that would be awesome since I’m horrible at math!
Was thinking of starting a home business!
This would make sure that I at least complete one of my new year resolutions. Another great giveaway. Thanks.
this would be awesome to get our family organized!

On the 14th day of the New Year, I’d give this to my one true love for his company business.
Too cool! My husband and I are going to start up our own business and I was thinking ‘Hmmmm, Simply Accounting or something else!’ to manage the accounts.
This would answer that question!
What a great giveaway. I’ve never used one of these software packages before to manage my finance, but never too late to begin if I win this prize.

My business is small but growing, and I could really use some software to help manage the accounting side of things!

Another day and another contest entered! Cheers!

I want one too!
I am an accountant, and have been using Simply Accounting since the early days when it was a DOS program called Bedford Accounting for my own use and for clients.
It has grown and evolved over the years and developed into a very sophisticated and practical accounting system for many different kinds of businesses. It can be a bit complicated to first set up if you do not understand accounting, but once installed properly it is easy to use. It is constantly being enhanced and rivals much larger and more expensive software.
I have yet to upgrade to the 2011 version, so winning this product would be great.
What a great blog
Keep it up
