Basic accounting apps

We are planning to start a very basic holiday let with our annexe.

Have read up on all the financial implications but need to consider how we keep track of purchases, expenditure and income (we will be using a letting agency to manage bookings) for tax purposes.

Am far from being an accounting genius but am hoping that I could attempt a diy effort if I used the right software/app

Can anyone recommend a suitable route for me to take or inexpensive piece of software to use. Also any other advice would be hugely welcomed!

Xero is excellent as an accounting app/ cloud based software.

No, I'm an accountant smile

Xero is wonderful but not cheap
Solar is worth a look
as is Quickbooks

I like VT because it integrates nicely with my tax and Companies House software grin

I use Mamut (was MYOB). Very user friendly. Not sure if it is Mac only though.

MYOB definitely works on PCs

- I've had clients use pretty much any software you can think of !

I'd second VT cashbook. It comes with a domestic chart of accounts which is ideal for a buy to let as it has all the usual analysis codes for a property.
