"I get a lot of businesses asking me about running their
businesses with open source software. Many assume there are not
packages that Linux and open source has no offerings for the SMB
(or the consultant) needing a tool to keep track of clients,
vendors, and (especially) invoicing. And even though many users
know of GnuCash, few know of it's wealth of tools.
"One of those tools available with GnuCash is invoicing. With
GnuCash you can create a professional invoice that will also
automatically post to your accounts receivable. So not only are you
able to issue invoices, the creation of these invoices will help
you keep track of money owed to you and your company. Let's see how
this is done.
"I will be working with GnuCash 2.2.9 on a Ubuntu desktop
machine. I will assume you already have GnuCash set up properly for
your business and that you know how to properly track finances with
this tool. Before you start creating invoices, you will have to
have customers created to bill."
