  • This simple yet powerful bookkeeping system is perfect for many of our contractors and sole traders and is much easier and intuitive to use than more well known packages. The simple photographic system makes record keeping a snap and produces reports in a format that is accepted by the ATO. I highly recommend this system for anyone in small business as it is the most cost effective, simple to use professional system I have ever seen.
