Good Value for the money

Reviewed on 27/04/2021

I am happy with my experience and software does what I need for the price.

Pros

Easy to use, simple interface, many easy to use reports to help you keep track of your finances

Cons

Does not work on my iphone, and balancing my books or correcting issues are tricky has the software only allows certain transactions.

Your software makes me feel crazy

Reviewed on 07/05/2021

Frustrating - wish we could do a screen share with support!

Pros

The new version is to cut down... online banking doesn't work which makes the rest of your improvements useless. So many things dont seem to work for us.

Cons

Fix the search!!! Even if I type the entire name of my supplier (ie Amazon) into the search it comes up last.... so annoying. Is there a UX cycle even done on the product?

TrulySmall helps me keep better accounting, in less time

Reviewed on 04/05/2021

Pros

The Smart Inbox helps me stay on track with what I need to do on the accounts. Removing the bulk of the data entry task is a huge timesaver. I don't like accounting, but TrulySmall makes it so much easier on me. I like the snapshot analysis on the dashboard. The user interface is very clean.

Cons

As a graduate from Kashoo Classic, one of the things I would like to see in TrulySmall is the auto entry for GST filing. The report creation is easy and I like being able to call up a report with a click, but for now, the journal to deal with remittance of GST has to be entered manually. The help articles need to fill out a bit on this topic. Generally, more help articles need to be created to update a lot of the instruction from Kashoo Classic that is still relevant in the TrulySmall environment.

Also, I needed extra help because I hit a wall backfilling data on a bank feed account where my bank was not supplying all the transaction data back to my transaction start date in TrulySmall. But hey, customer service helped me sort it.

Wave Accounting

Reasons for Switching to TrulySmall Accounting

My bank offered me a chance to get Wave, but because of the performance history of Kashoo and the accessibility of customer support, through videos, help articles and chat, I opted for TrulySmall.

Great support

Reviewed on 04/05/2021

It is new for me to use accounting software like this so it is a steep learning curve and I've appreciated the support.

Pros

It's super easy to use and the support has been very available, respectful, and knowledgeable

Cons

There are many times where my purchases (from my bank feed) get mislabelled. For example a purchase from Osborne Seed Company gets inputted as Ornery Beer Company. This happens regularly.

Response from Kashoo

Kashoo - When you can't afford Quickbooks

Reviewed on 28/04/2021

It's okay.

Pros

Easy to get started, and functional when dealing with small numbers of transactions.

Customer support has greatly improved.

I've heard that they are actively working on improving the product, so opinions may change.

Cons

DO NOT go near this software if you are a e-comm focused heavy transaction business. Handling multiple transactions simultaneously is impossible.

App and web versions are not compatible in some cases.

Data import options are severely limited.

Alternatives Considered

Price, support from my accountant.

Response from Kashoo

Thank you so much for submitting your feedback! TrulySmall Accounting definitely works best for truly small businesses that have 500 or less transactions a year.

For editing multiple transactions at the same time, we do offer a bulk edit feature that allows you to categorize several transactions at once!

We're definitely still looking to grow and improve our app so we really appreciate your feedback!
