Instant upgrade to new version
Banana Accounting Plus is fully compatible in reading and writing with files from previous versions. All you have to do is open the program and you will find your Recent and Favorite files in the new Start page. Work immediately as before, better than before. The mode of use, the commands and the file format remain the same.
Files modified with Banana Accounting Plus can always be re-opened with the old versions.
More immediate and direct menus
The menus and commands have been reorganized in a more logical and functional way: the Report menu includes all the output and printing commands, while the Actions menu groups the main operational functions.
The Appearance command (from the Window menu) has been added, from which you can now decide whether to display the Develop menu and the light/dark mode of the program.
There are new keyboard shortcuts, to work quickly without having to go through the menus: move row down and up, duplicate row.
Improved synchronization and saving of files to Dropbox and other cloud systems.
Optimized for the latest operating systems
Operating systems are evolving faster and faster. Banana Accounting Plus offers greater compatibility:
- Light and dark screen modes
- Better graphics for high-resolution screens
- Optimized for Mac Big Sur (Monterey), works with new Apple M1 processors with Rosetta
- More up-to-date Linux libraries
- Android and iOS mobile: most desktop features available
Mobile version - access your data anywhere
With the mobile version of Banana Accounting Plus for Android and iOS, you can quickly enter the transactions and control your accounting at any time. It is very convenient if you are already keeping your accounting with the desktop version and want to update your data wherever you are.
It's also ideal for students who don't have a computer, but can still learn double-entry accounting and practice via their smartphone.
Save time with the Balance column
Thanks to the new Balance column (Check Balance) in the Transactions table, you can instantly see if and where there are accounting differences. An incredible help when you have to close the accounting or create the VAT statement. On its own, this innovation has been met with great enthusiasm and those who try it never go back!
"It's fantastic! Thanks to the new Balance column, I can see how there is an error. If I correct it, I can see the next error right away. The nice side effect, besides a more rational work, is that I now need a third of the time for checking. And that's really the point: less time - less cost - happy customers." - Mr. Eberle
Digital attachments - never look for a document again
Entering digital documents has become even more functional:
- Smart entries - If you start typing any part of the file name to be attached, the program shows you only the documents that contain the text you typed and only those that have not yet been attached. Very fast!
- Rename documents - If you need to rename a digital document, now you can do it directly from Banana: the original file in Explorer is also automatically renamed.
- Links in all tables - the Link column is available in all tables
Your work becomes faster, your documents are always just a click away. Paper documents are no longer necessary.
New invoice layouts, also with QR
Do you already manage invoices in your accounting file? Our new generation of invoice layouts gives you many more customization options than before: better define margins, indicate where you want to put the customer address or logo, etc.
With the new CH10 invoice layout for Switzerland you can add the QR code or just indicate your bank details. The UNI11 invoice layout serves all international users. In no time you have your invoices ready in PDF!
Some advanced customization features are available only in the Advanced plan.
Reading .ZIP files
If your bank or credit card provides you with the data of your transactions in a .zip format, now you can import this file directly into Banana Accounting Plus.
Importing multiple files
Some banks provide transactions data month by month. Banana Accounting Plus supports the new ISO 20022: you can now import several transaction files at the same time, for the same account. The time you save is remarkable!
Estimates and Invoices management
Designed for those who want to manage Estimates and Invoices separately from the accounting file. Used a lot by those who have VAT on the cash method and in particular by those who have the flat tax rate, because they can issue invoices with VAT at 7.7% while in the accounting file they register with the rate granted by the VAT authority.
It is possible to create offers, duplicate them to create different options and then convert the approved one into an invoice.
Invoices are customizable, even with a QR code or just the indication of bank data (IBAN, SWIFT, ...).
You can include notes or texts at the bottom of the page and include various other informations that help you track payments in an instant. If you have customers who speak foreign languages, you can create for each customer an invoice in their own language.
New and effective way to quickly and easily manage your inventory or warehouse with items of any kind. Record entries, exits and movements of goods from one location to another, also with a link to the Projects table.
See immediately how many items you have in stock, their value, the always updated balances of the items. For each item you have the complete card with all the movements.
You can also obtain the detail of the items for each location.
Time sheet with Project management
You can now use the Time sheet App not only to manage your working schedule but as a personal organizer: you can assign your time spent on different projects or customers.
- Additional optional columns, such as for example the ones to calculate extra time (on festive days or at night)
- Add more than one row for the same day, useful to manage different Projects
Data saving has been enhanced to ensure even more security and prevent accidental loss. The program creates a local copy of the accounting data, so that if work or the network connection is interrupted files are automatically saved.
Even with the subscription, the privacy of the data is guaranteed. Banana Accounting Plus continues to be a NON Cloud software, therefore the data is always safe on your computer: you decide with whom to share it.
