To help you choose your tool, here is our selection of the best accounting software for freelancers in 2022. You can also rely on our selection criteria provided in the second part to make the right choice.


Our selection of the best accounting software for micro-enterprises

Thanks to our numerous tests and trials on the accounting software available on the market, we offer you a list of tools adapted to your status. However, it is worth remembering that there is no best accounting software for all self-employed entrepreneurs, but a software that is best suited to your needs. Here is our selection (updated regularly).

  • Freebe – Freelancers only
  • Abby – All Professions
  • Quickbooks – All Professions
  • Indy – All Professions

You will notice that our selection only contains so-called SaaS software, which can be used directly online. More modern, with a more interesting quality/price ratio and adapted to professionals on the move, they are more suited to your status in our opinion. We have therefore focused our selection on this type of software for the self-employed, but we still mention one to download at the end of this list.

Do you absolutely have to pay for your micro-enterprise's accounting software?

Many of you want to give preference to free micro-business accounting software. We understand why, but also understand that they do not necessarily provide the same level of services as paid tools.


So even if micro accounting remains succinct and simplified (essentially income and expense book), spending a few euros per month for software is often easily justified for more modern, more complete tools, including updates, etc… This- said, if the budget is an important criterion for you, here are some software that will do the trick, and which are free.


TiimeAE is a free software for auto-entrepreneurs. It brings together billing and accounting under a single tool with simplified and intuitive use. Other 100% online and free software, ComptaAE or MyAE are also dedicated to this status. Finally, Odoo also offers a free plan.


In any case, this selection will evolve according to our future tests and software developments.
