Reading Time: 2 minutes

And so it begins… Today we’re very proud to announce Akaunting to the public! After a couple of months of a heavy development stage, we are thrilled to share the first stable version of Akaunting with everyone. We’ve passed 900 development commits since the beginning.

Akaunting is a free, open-source, and online accounting software for small businesses and freelancers. It has all the tools you need to manage your money. Thanks to its modular structure, Akaunting provides an awesome App Store for users and developers.


Akaunting is completely free. You may see a similar claim within other accounting software but they all have limitations. Some of them limit the number of admins/customers, another one invoices, and the other online payments. With Akaunting, there are no hidden fees, no strings attached, no limited versions, no trials, etc. Free means free.


You can access Akaunting from any device. Akaunting allows you to see your financials online anytime, anywhere. As long as you have an internet connection, an increasingly ubiquitous situation, you can access your financials instantly. You can also give limited access rights to anyone, i.e. accountant, so they could see only what you’ve allowed to.


With Akaunting, your financials are under your control. Open Source software provides you full privacy. After seeing how this completely closed-source dominated market space impacts the lives and successes of small businesses, we knew there was a problem. We’re disrupting the space and introducing the power of Open Source to the accounting world.


Akaunting is built with modern technologies such as Laravel, Bootstrap, jQuery, RESTful API, etc. Laravel is the most popular PHP framework with thousands of contributors from all over the world and ships with modern tools such as beautiful syntax, amazing ORM, painless routing, powerful queue library, built-in security, and a lot more.


Similar to Laravel, the development strategy of Akaunting adopts a regular release schedule every 5-6 months with the features primarily driven by ideas voted on by our community. Let’s make Akaunting together, join our community today.
