Free Personal Finance Software for Mac and Linux

Free Personal Accounting Software - [Register]Although there are quite a few different personal finance software packages available for a Microsoft Windows PC, I personally use an old version of Microsoft Money 2000, I have not seen many packages available for personal finance management on the Mac or on Linux.

Today however I found GnuCash on the web. It describes itself as “GnuCash is personal and small-business financial-accounting software, freely licensed under the GNU GPL and available for GNU/Linux, *BSD, Solaris and Mac OSX.”

GnuCash seems to be a fairly feature rich personal finance application. It includes:

  • Checkbook-Style Register
  • A fairly robust (from what I can tell) Financial Reporting and Graphing Module
  • Different Account Types to help monitor cash flow
  • Support for multiple currencies
  • Stock and Mutual Fund Portfolios
  • Small Business Accounting Module, which includes Customer and Vendor tracking, Invoicing and Bill Payments, and Tax and Billing Terms
  • Intuit Quicken QIF import
  • Support for the Open Financial Exchange (OFX) protocal
  • Statement Reconciliation
  • Localization
  • Financial Transaction Search Feature
  • Support for Online Stock and Mutual Fund Quotes
  • Cheque Printing
  • Scheduled Transactions
  • and quite a bit more

Although I won’t be using this myself I will be suggesting it to my friends at work who are running Mac OSX as an option for their own Free Personal Finance Software.
