    I have been used AccountEdge for several years now and overall I have been please with the accounting package. I find it easy to use and for our business that is gradually winding down I do not need anything more than basic.

    The biggest drawback for me is the fact that it is not compatable with Catalina and I will need to make a quick decision whether to continue with AccountEdge or go elsewhere. Also, over the years, I have given up trying to work with AccountEdge customer service (or lack of). Most companies work very deligently with customers, unfortunately AccountEdge does not.

    I am extremely disappointed with the service I have received from AccountEdge. When I purchased the program for Mac I was informed I would receive the Catalina compliant version as soon as it was available. After spending a month learning the ins and outs of the program, I was informed that the Catalina version would not be made available. I made numerous attempts to come to some sort of compromise with AccountEdge, since I had just spent so much time learning this program, but I was received by extremely rude customer services reps who were not willing to help at all. I would not recommend you purchase this program, because if any issues arise, they will be unwilling to help in any way.

      Hi, we’ve been using AccountEdge and were satisfied with it, but there is now a BIG CON – AccountEdge is not going to be Catalina (64 bit) compatible. So…you cannot update your Mac and run this software. That ends it for me, not going to run on a windows computer, go to online version, or run parallels to do this. Total, total bummer!

        Hi Linda,

        That is a big con. While we mention the supported Mac versions in this review, I’ll make it more clear to readers that Catalina is not supported. Thank you for your feedback and best of luck in all of your endeavors.

            While there was a steep learning curve, it was fairly easy to figure out. HOWEVER, they have just send out notice that it will not work on the latest OS for Mac – Catalina. AND they are not going to make it work for that OS.So now – I’m looking for something I can use without a steep learning curve. I will update my Mac but I will not use Accountedge after that.

            Thank you for your review, pretty detailed.

            Is it useful for bookkeepers with multiple companies, and can it import and export transactions and lists to and from excel?

              Hi there RJ!

              Thanks for reaching out! We’re happy to help. AccountEdge does not support multiple companies. Here is how some accountants and bookkeepers work with AccountEdge. You can import and export data with AccountEdge. Here is a full list of everything you can import and export.

              Hope this helps! We’ll be updating our AccountEdge review in the next month or two, so stay tuned for the latest information on this accounting option. In the meantime, feel free to reach out with any other questions.

              Best wishes,
