For a small business, cant u just use Excel instead of paying the $100+ for Quickbooks. I havent yet used QB but isnt it a spreadsheet just like Excel? I was thinking to set up an Excel sheet with "sales revenue" at the top followed by any "costs" "depreciation" and "taxes" etc.. And at the end of the income statement just have the "net income". Will this work or am I missing the big picture of what QB can do for me???
