Small Business Accounting

Everything you need from a small, simple small business accounting tool. Billing, Payments, Ledgers, Invoices, Reporting. A fully featured replacement for tools like GNU Cash and Tally.

No Cloud

Cloud apps make you dependent on service provider. A service like that is never truly free, and it does not have to be like that. With desktop apps, you have much more control over your data.

Free and Open Source

Frappe Books is free software. This means it comes with the four essential freedoms. You are allowed to run it as you wish, you can look at its source code and modify it.

Modern Web Friendly UI

Frappe Books is built with our homegrown framework FrappeJS which is based on NodeJS and bundled with Electron. But it is still designed in a way how a desktop software functions.

Everything You Need

Create professional invoices, generate beautiful PDFs and send them to your customers.

From the Team Behind ERPNext

We have been building business software for over a decade now. Learning from our mistakes and picking the best parts of our flagship product ERPNext, we came up with a simple app that does one thing well, Accounting.
