    Hi! I've a restaurant and I'm looking for a software to manage it.
    It should operate on Mac. Moreover it should be easy to use and free.

    Coul you suggest me something?

    thanks

    You want a fairly specialised business management application for Mac, and you want it for free.

    Good luck with that :rolleyes:

    Yeah- don't think I'll ever understand that! :confused:

    Unless maybe all the food in the restaurant is free too since people apparently don't need to be paid for their labors!:D

    Why does it matter if it's free or not? You can write off the cost on your tax return.

    Jerry: So, we're going to make the post office pay for my new stereo, now?
    Kramer: It's a write-off for them.
    Jerry: How is it a write-off?
    Kramer: They just write it off.
    Jerry: Write it off what?
    Kramer: Jerry all these big companies they write off everything.
    Jerry: You don't even know what a write-off is.
    Kramer: Do you?
    Jerry: No, I don't.
    Kramer: But they do - and they are the ones writing it off.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but it still doesn't make it free. Nothing is as easy as write it off.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but the cost of the software can be claimed as a business expense on her tax return. Sure she won't get 100% of the cost back, but she won't pay 100% either (in the long run).

    If it's software that doesn't necessarily update annually, she could amortize it over 3 years on form 4562, if it's Quickbooks or a similar program (not sure if Quickbooks is Mac compatible) that renews yearly, she can expense it on Schedule C.

    Where did you get your accounting degree?

    In a state where its extremely tough to post a profit right now, Michigan. Write-Offs do not work so well when you do not post a profit, which in MI its tough to do and will be for the next few years.

    KomanderTPV

    Maybe this could help:

    KomanderTPV is a free software for restaurants that allows workers and customers to take orders from smartphones.
