All small businesses must decide how to manage the money coming in and going out.

In this post, we provide an overview comparison of ten current (2016) popular online accounting software that you, a bookkeeper and accountant may use to turn your financial operations into a finely tuned machine. But there are more solutions your advisor might suggest.
