GnuCash is free, so that’s nice. However, GnuCash is functionally powerful, but it’s very weak when it comes to user-friendliness. It can handle complex accounting tasks, including those required to run a small business. Users can set up a variety of account types, including cash, banks and other financial institutions, credit cards, mutual funds, stocks and accounts payable and receivable.
