I spent a couple years fighting with quickbooks at my accountant's recommendation, then I made the break to gnucash and never looked back. I love owning my own data. Quickbooks is like ransomware, they are happy for you to enter all your data, but if you want to get it back you will start the negotiation process. That's a business plan that I gladly opted out of. Now all my data belongs to me, and if I need a special report I just script it, simple.

Oh and by the way, I gave my accountant my gnucash files at the end of the year along with the multiplatform installations for it and he coped just fine.

Rather than try to offer advice myself, since I have absolutely no experience with business accounting software, here are some links to peruse:

All of them seem to intermix personal financial software (kmymoney, gribsi, moneydance, with business accounting software so you'll have to do some pruning, and who knows how current they are, but it's a start.
