Open Source accounting system
Beanie is a flexible, distributed accounting system for medium-sized companies. It includes back-end batch processing as well as a skeleton GTK GUI and provides automated purchases, sales, and nominal ledgers as well as automated invoicing via email. It also supports VAT and payroll.
The latest version has considerable updates over the earlier releases and isn’t particularly backwards-compatible. The installation and compilation is streamlined and the multi-database schema has been reduced to a single database per company. The gnome GUI is still lacking, but the command-line interface now has support for automated bank reconciliation from online banking QIF files, payroll, automated billing and reminders, invoice PDF generation, statement PDF generation, and a general journal.
