Wife works for a non profit organisation which doesn't have much spare cash. They have an accounting package that does not do invoicing (possibly changing next year to one that does).

In the mean time she needs a small program that does invoicing straight out of the box preferably free.

Thanks :thanks

Xero is great, if they can afford $50 per month. From your post it sounds like this may not be the case, but it's worth bearing in mind.

Noting they're a non-profit, it may also be worth approaching Xero to see if they can offer a better price.

You can't beat $0 which is what GnuCash costs. While it is not a full business accounting package it does invoicing etc. I set up a mates PC with it so he could do his invoicing and books with it. It is a double entry system which can be a little hard for some people to get their head around initially.
I notice the invoicing package above in Trev's link is AU$50.

Gnucash looks more like a cashbook that an invoicing programme. I put a few clients on to Instant Invoice a few years back but I see they want $99 USD for it now.

I havent tried these, but here are a few links worth checking out.

http://www.invoiceexpert.com/ Free up to 100 customers I think.

And also

http://shop.sage.co.uk/free.aspx Might be worth a look. They have a free package but requires registration etc I think.

It is an accounting program that does invoicing, so for what they are doing it may be all they need.

GnuCash is also available in a portable version.

Run from a USB drive etc. and NO changes to the registry.

GnuCash 2.4.7 Portable (http://portableapps.com/apps/office/gnucash_portable)

Sage requires a UK Zip code before it will let you continue to set it up

Probably a fairy tale package by now.

But we used to use Office97.

Don't know about the latest Windows Office package, use Open Office which does not have that facility.

It's just a template so of course you could do the same with Libre Office/OO.

If you just need to be able to create invoices you could just create an excel template, thats what our office uses.
