What should be included:
  • Deciding which accounting software program is best for your business depends on your specific industry, the size of your company and other factors; Entrepreneur.com[8] gives a quick overview of what to consider.
Discounts:
  • Figure out exactly what features you need, then decide if an older (and less expensive) version of a particular product will serve your company just as well as the latest model.

  • Watch for sales: retailers such as Office Depot[9] , OfficeMax[10] or Costco[11] often run in-store sales or online specials on this type of software.
  • Search Froogle[12] or BizRate.com[13] to compare prices.
