Accountancy Age’s sister publication tested seven packages, four for the home user (Intuit Quicken XG Startup, Intuit Quicken XG Suite, Microsoft Money 2003, Microsoft Money 2003 Financial Suite) and three for the small business (Intuit Quickbooks 2003 Premier, MYOB Accounting 11 Plus, Sage Line 50 Financial Controller 9).

PCW said Microsoft Money 2003 and Intuit Quicken were ‘so far ahead of the field in terms of slickness that there is really no competition’.

It said of the Microsoft product: ‘If you use Money to get your finances in order, create a snapshot of where you are, use reports and charts to plan where you’re heading, and you won’t go wrong.’

Other highly recommended packages included: MYOB Accounting 11 Plus. And Sage Line 50 Financial Controller 9.
