Quicken is well-known as one of the best home personal finance packages. But with Quicken 2002 Deluxe & Business--the top of the new three-product range--maker Intuit is firmly targeting the small business user too. You will, of course, establish the same financial disciplines as with the more basic versions of the package (the entry-level Quicken 2002 Standard and more sophisticated Quicken 2002 Deluxe) but Deluxe & Business aims to help you "manage and grow your business".

When you first open the application, it will demand that you input details of all your financial holding--credit cards, current accounts, properties, mortgages and so on. It will itemise the value of each and, in the case of assets such as property, compare how much they are worth with how much you owe on them (outstanding mortgage payments in other words). This rigorous financial exercise will give you (possibly for the first time) a detailed picture of your personal financial balance sheet. You will be able to take remedial action and set financial targets, and your journey towards fiscal wealth and health has begun. In addition to these basic logging, tracking and forecasting tools, Deluxe & Business can be used to manage and monitor daily business transactions; prepare profit and loss accounts and balance sheets; you will also be able to prepare estimates and invoices (and email them direct from Quicken) and you can create and track individual customer projects, such as a business pitch you are preparing.

A firm of any real size may opt to move straight up to one of Intuit's QuickBooks packages. But for home businesses which don't need the likes of sophisticated payroll facilities, Quicken 2002 Deluxe & Business could be all the financial management software required. And, being easier to set up than ever and simple to use, it's unlikely to scare even the most financially inept among us. --John Rennie
