特徴

GnuCash is powerful accounting software. Below are details of some of the numerous features that GnuCash has to offer to its users.

Main features

複式記帳法

[Basic account relationship]

Every transaction must debit one account and credit others by an equal amount. This ensures the books balance: the difference between income and expenses exactly equals the sum of assets and liabilities.

小切手帳スタイルの記録簿

[Register]

The GnuCash checkbook-style register provides a custom, convenient and familiar interface to entering financial transactions.

The register supports common checking and credit-card transactions, as well as income, stock and currency transactions. The following features are also provided:

  • The ability to enter split transactions
  • The ability to mark a transaction as cleared or reconciled
  • Autofill of entered transactions
  • The ability to display multiple accounts in a single register window
  • A summary bar that displays all of the relevant account's balance information
  • Many options to customize the appearance and the display style

予定取引

[Scheduled transactions]

You can create recurring transactions with a high level of customization of amounts and timeline. You can also set an automatic reminder when a transaction is due.

An assistant that runs when GnuCash is started allows scheduled transactions to be postponed without canceling or entering them before the due date.

帳票、グラフ

[Graphs]

GnuCash has an integrated module to display graphs of your financial data in the form of:

  • Barcharts
  • Piecharts
  • Scatter plots
GnuCash also comes complete with a full suite of standard and customizeable reports, such as:
  • Balance Sheet
  • Profit & Loss
  • Portfolio Valuation
  • and many others.

Graphs and reports can be highly and easily customized in appearance and contents, in order to fullfill every user's need.

明細書の照合

[Reconcile]

Account reconciliation allows the user to compare the transactions entered in an account against a bank statement. This operation is very useful to spot untracked transactions or data entry errors and ensure that your books match the bank's.

The GnuCash reconcile tool with running reconciled and cleared balances makes reconciling against bank statements an easy task.

収益/費用勘定科目タイプ

収益/費用勘定科目タイプ (カテゴリ) によってキャッシュフローを分類することができます。複式記帳法と純資産勘定科目を適切に使用することで、ごく普通のシステムでは取り扱うことができないような損益計算書などの帳票を作成することができます。

Advanced features

小規模ビジネス向け会計機能

Simplify managing a small business with Customer and Vendor tracking, Jobs, Invoicing and Bill Payment, and Tax and Billing Terms.

Using A/Receivable and A/Payable accounts you can even manage payrolls for your employees.

GnuCash gives you also a tool to manage your business' budget so that you can easily plan your financial strategy.

複数通貨

[Multiple currencies]

異なる勘定科目に対しては異なる通貨単位で表示することができます。勘定科目間での通貨の移動は複式記帳法を利用することで釣り合いが完全に保たれます。

株式 / 投資信託のポートフォリオ

株式を個別 (勘定科目単位) または勘定科目のポートフォリオ (一緒に表示可能な勘定科目グループ) として追跡することができます。

オンライン株式・投資信託相場表取得

株式・投資信託の相場表を様々なウェブサイトから取得して、自動的にポートフォリオをアップデートします。相場情報源は定期的に追加されます。

Data storage and exchange features

Experimental database support

GnuCash by default stores data in an xml format. Starting with version 2.4, GnuCash financial data can be stored in a SQL database using SQLite3, MySQL or PostgreSQL.

Note this feature is considered experimental. It works for most of the common use cases but some corner cases have been reported to result in data loss. The GnuCash developers fix each issue as it gets reported. There is however no full test coverage so there may still be scenarios left that result in data loss.

QIF and OFX Import

If you are migrating from other financial software, GnuCash can import Intuit® Quicken® QIF files using a practical assistant.

GnuCash is also the first free software application to support the OFX (Open Financial Exchange) protocol that many banks and financial services are starting to use.

A transaction matching system ensures that duplicate transactions are accurately recognized and automatically deleted during file import.

HBCI サポート

GnuCash is the first free software application to support the German Home Banking Computer Information protocol, allowing German users to perform statement download and initiate bank transfers and direct debits.

Other goodies
