Re: [K12OSN] OT - school financial/accounting software

WRT Payroll for SQL-Ledger:
There is a canadian payroll program available (cdnpayroll) which does our payroll for us. It has in the past been adapted to doing the queries for SL. That isn't working right now, however.

We do the payroll GL entries manually, and set up Vendor Invoices for the employees. That way, we can track individual employees (for tax time) and still get overall payroll costs.

It wouldn't hurt to ask the SQL Ledger people about adding a payroll module. If the upgrade is going to cost you 50K then you ought to be willing to shell out SOMETHING for them to add a payroll module if it works for you otherwise.

I looked at SQL Ledger and it does look nice, simple interface.  It
doesn't have a payroll module and unfortunately we do that inhouse.  I
haven't seen any programs that have the payroll module.  I appreciate
all that have sent input on this subject.

did you take a look at SQL ledger -- it's free, fairly easy to
install and comes with templates for all kinds of businesses -- I
don't know if they set one up for schools, but it's a quick download
to find out.  If google is to be believed, it looks like schools in
the uk are using or evaluating it -- they may already have the
customizations done.  Of course you would have to work in pounds :)

Does anyone use an opensource school accounting/book keeping
application. We are looking at upgrading our current software, McAleer School Accounting, and I would love to consider something opensource.
The upgrade is going to cost us $50,000.00!



I second the suggestion for SQL-Ledger- we use it for a small preschool
here. It does what's needed, and provides simple enough processing  for
invoices. We use it with emailing invoices and the like, and it just
plain works. I had to set up the chart of accounts to match my needs,
but it's been smooth sailing from there. The CofA is probably already
developed in your old software, so all you need to do is replicate  the
familiar accounts structure. You'll be set.
