Hi Everyone I have a couple of clients that only have 1 or 2 employees including themselves and currently don't have the latest accounting software. Has any had any experience with any of the software the ATO have recommended that is free cost affective or am I best to recommend Gov Reports.

Hi Phillipa,

Most of the free solutions will do the job, however many of them don't offer free support or their support is offshore and email only.

Microkeeper is a payroll and STP solution that's free for 1 admin with 1 employee, and paid plans are very competitive too.

Microkeeper has phone and email support in Australia.

A small account, with a handful of staff, can usually be up and running in 10 minutes.

All the free options are self service, I would suggest giving them all a go to see which one is the best fit for your customers.
