And if you're familiar with double-entry bookkeeping you'll also find LedgerLite is the perfect tool to maintain the books of a business, club or trust, or your personal finances, especially if reliability or privacy are important to you.

(NOTE: If nothing happens when you click the download link try the right mouse button and select Save link as from the pop-up menu. If you get a message saying it cannot be downloaded securely click on the down-arrow and select Keep or Keep Anyway. If you still have difficulty please see the LedgerLite FAQ page.)

Simply download the LedgerLite EXE file to a folder on your computer's hard drive or USB stick and run. The database gets created automatically in the same folder. You can keep both program and data on a USB flash drive making it easy to backup or share with your accountant. To access simply plug into any USB port on any Windows computer and run. It doesn't get much easier than that! (Whoever said accounting software needs to be complex?)

Here at Responsive Software we're committed to giving you the best possible experience with LedgerLite. If you're sick and tired of accounting software that's expensive, slow, unreliable, insecure, complex, buggy, inconsistent or poorly-supported (or you're just fed up with being told how to run your business) you definitely need to try LedgerLite!

Important Note For New Users

Other popular accounting systems try to conceal the true nature of accounting but not ours. Although LedgerLite makes it easy to work like an accountant you still need to understand double-entry bookkeeping and the function of a general ledger. However once you've grasped these basic principles (it's not that hard) you'll find LedgerLite simpler, easier, better, faster, cheaper, more reliable, more flexible, more stable and more secure than any other accounting system. You'll also come to appreciate the Divinely-inspired insight of a fifteenth century Italian monk who saw with clarity how God meant it to work some 500 years ago!

SANITY CHECK - Why would anyone in their right mind pay a monthly fee to maintain their financial data on a server they've no control over when they can keep it private and secure on their own computer or USB stick for free?
