Less Accounting is an accounting solution built for small businesses. It also includes the ability to create proposals and will track your mileage and act as a basic CRM (customer relationship manager.)
Less Accounting Highlights
Granular Expense Tracking. Record and categorize business expenses by securely connecting your bank account. You can even organize expenses across a number of different categories, such as project, income type, or a customizable category. Reminders can be set up to alert you of upcoming due dates connected to expenses. One expense that is often left out of many accounting programs is mileage tracking, which is included in Less Accounting’s features.
Proposals. Less Accounting provides a number of templates that can be edited to create custom business proposals. Those proposals can be attached as notes to contacts and can be converted to client-ready invoices.
Contacts and CRM. Less Accounting has some built-in CRM features. You can import all your contacts from Gmail, Highrise, Basecamp, and more, and attach notes and reminders to those contacts.
Reports. You can use Less Accounting to build reports that let you filter by date and client, or you can create custom tags. There are also reports to keep track of accounts payable and receivable.

Migration. Less Accounting provides information on how to migrate from QuickBooks, but it isn’t an actual data import. Rather, it is several steps (such as auto-importing credit cards, importing a file of older transactions, and manually creating some invoices) that, taken together, may approximate a migration.
Apps and Integration. There are no iOS or Android apps for Less Accounting. However, they have integrated with a number of third-party apps, including Stripe and PayPal for invoice payments and Basecamp for project management.
