    Is there any software that will actually allow me to do my financial transactions and bookeeping in osx.

    According to their website Quicken/Quickbooks doesn't support my bank and all the files i try on versiontracker are basically just apps for balancing my checkbook... they dont actually facilitate the transactions.

    Anything out there for this?

    Thanks.

    I loved MYOB, on early versions. With luck, it will suit you. Where does Quicken fall short? Give us more data.

    I want the ability to actually pay the bills in the software...

    click = transfer money from my account to the vendor. ie: online banking or electronic checking.

    I use MYOB and it works fine for me.

    dont use PCs though (if you use AIB -which nobody in america does - so i think ill shut up now)

    My bank sent me software for the PC for their online banking service and it had a built in modem dialer. I was using ISDN and when i rang them up they said that their professional business package did not support anything other than a dialup modem coneection.

    My bank is AIB (Allied Irish Bank) by the way.

    actually, i used to use AIB here in New York, they have a branch here, very nice too. a step above the big banks over here, which are abysmal (sp?) and the banks like AIB are getting more popular. Commerce Bank is awesome btw ;) oh, and the guy at AIB i always talk to is a Liverpool FC fan too! :D

    but yeah, quickbooks pro for mac is just useless, it's basically qbp from years back with os x buttons. very poor. my accountant was waiting for years for it to be updated for mac, and he returned it with a NASTY letter. i'm looking too but have heard bad things about all the major players in the market.....

    Ahhh, brings a tear to my eye... but dont let it fool you, the Irish banks are just as money hungry and devious as every other major bank - they just have nicer buildings......

    my point is that it doesnt support anything more than modem dialling (no ISDN, no Cable, no ADSL, no nothing....). I already have a PC for doing it. And they call it their professional package.
