The Best 5 Free & Affordable Alternatives to Quicken

Cash Tree

Whether you’re looking for a personal finance tracking account to keep track of bills, charges, and your bank accounts, or you’re looking for something to help run accounting and finances at your small business or firm, one of the top recommended apps to use is H.I.G. Capital’s Quicken software, an application that’s been around for computing devices since the 1980s. Quicken is trusted all over the world to handle billing systems, financial goals, and investments, but all those features don’t come at a cheap price. Quicken’s products range for $40 to $100 USD, and Intuit has been experimenting with subscription models in other countries—bad news for those of us who don’t want to pay monthly or yearly for software.

If you’ve been on the hunt for an alternative program for both personal and small business finance tracking rather than paying for and using Quicken, there’s plenty of good news for you. We’ve found the five best accounting systems and softwares available as alternative choices to Quicken. So whether you don’t want to pay for software, or you’re looking for something a bit easier to use or manage, we’ve got some of the best alternatives listed below. No matter what you’re looking for, we’re confident one of these will fit both your personal use and your small business needs.

Rami,
YNAB should be able to convert your Quicken Deluxe data. That’s what I use and came from using Quicken.

That’s my 100 thousand dollar question as well. I know that Personal Capital won’t convert data, and I’m doubtful on the others as well. Quicken is pretty proprietary on their data requirements.

Why can’t there be just a flipping bank register program that does just that and only that. Quicken Basic used to be more than enough for simple users. So I have to pay for it, big deal. I’m willing to pay for such a simple program,.
