What are the best accounting apps in 2019?

The sleek and sophisticated accounting software available these days means you can run your business wherever you are. Capturing invoices and tracking expenses are just two features you’re likely to need from a mobile accounting app, but ease of use and intuitive navigation are also important.

To help you make a decision about which one might be a good option for your business, here are some of the best accounting apps of 2019.

KashFlow Go

Features

  • Instant invoicing
  • Track expenses
  • Attach receipt images
  • Log mileage
  • Available on Android and IOS
  • Online banking level data encryption

Benefits

KashFlow Go has a clear and logical dashboard that provides an uncomplicated overview of your business, and instant real-time information when you’re out and about. You can invoice a customer or client as soon as you’ve finished the work, and get paid straight away.

Pandle

Features

  • Send invoices straight away
  • Categorise transactions
  • Photograph and attach receipts (Pro option)
  • Available on Android and IOS
  • Clear, user-friendly dashboard

Benefits

Pandle software is free to use and may be a good option if you don’t need all the ‘bells and whistles’ typically available with other packages. Your future options are also covered, however, as you can upgrade to a ‘Pro’ account at any time. This offers you such extras as bank feeds and cash flow forecasts, but depending on your business the basic plan may  already perfectly meet your needs.

  • Free
  • Pro plan: £5 per month plus VAT

(free 14-day trial available)

Xero

  • Bank reconciliations
  • Capture and upload expenses
  • Available on Android and IOS

  • Allow controlled access for employees

Benefits

The Xero mobile app allows you to stay in full control of your business while you’re on the move, and if you employ mobile workers you can approve their expenses too. Controlled access to only the features they need means employees can send invoices and upload expense claims via their own mobile phones.

Cost

  • Starter: £10 per month plus VAT
  • Standard: £22 per month plus VAT
  • Premium: £27.50 per month plus VAT

(30-day free trial available)

ClearBooks

Features

  • Scan receipts and documents
  • Upload expenses
  • Allocate payments to unpaid invoices
  • Control access for additional users
  • Available on Android and IOS
  • Bank account integration

Benefits

The ClearBooks mobile app offers scalability for young and growing businesses but if you don’t currently need many accounting features you can start with their free software. This has the appearance of a spreadsheet, but their simple interface and logical navigation provides a clear view of your business finances whatever plan you choose.

Cost

  • Micro: free
  • Small: currently £5 per month for the first three months, then £10 per month
  • Large: currently £10.75 per month for the first three months, then £21.50 per month
