Free Accounting Software for small business

Some of them limit the number of admins/customers, other invoices, and some, online payments. With Akaunting, there are no hidden fees, no strings attached, no limited versions, no trials, etc. Free means free.

Online Accounting Software

You can access Akaunting from any device. Akaunting allows you to see your financials online anytime, anywhere. You can access your financials instantly if you have an internet connection.

You can also give limited access rights to stakeholders of your business. e.g., You can give access to your accountant, so they only see what you’ve allowed.

Open Source Accounting Software

We’re disrupting the space and introducing the power of Open Source to the accounting world.

Better UI & UX

Akaunting is built with modern technologies such as Laravel, Tailwind, Vuejs, RESTful API, etc. 

The user experience is fluid, providing you with an easy user interface to navigate and find your favorite features quickly.
