Money Manager FAQs

Explore Our Frequently Asked Questions

Will it work on Windows 11?

Yes, Money Manager 7 is compatible with Windows 11, Windows 10 and Windows 8.1

Can I do the accounts for more than one company?

Yes, there is no limit to the number of companies / personal accounts that you can process.

Can Money Manager do online filing?

Yes – Money Manager 7 Business Edition will file VAT returns online to HMRC. Money Manager is not accounts production software, and as such will not file CT600 or iXBRL returns.

Do you send a disc?

No, everything is done online – the software is downloaded directly from our website. Should you need to re-install the program for any reason, you can do this at any time by re-downloading.

Can I use it on more than one computer?

Yes, each licence is sold for a single user – however, it is quite normal and acceptable for this user to install the software on more than one computer (e.g. one at work, one at home) for their own use, using the same User Licence Code.

I want to do my business and personal accounts, do I need both versions?

No, Money Manager 7 Business Edition will allow you to process both your business and personal accounts if you wish.

What about Final Accounts?

Previous versions of Money Manager had an associated ‘Final Accounts’ add-on program available, to enable the production of a Trial Balance, Profit & Loss report etc. Money Manager 7 will not work with these previous versions of Final Accounts – we do NOT have a version of Final Accounts that will work with Money Manager 7.

Does it work on a Mac?

No – Our software is only designed to operate on Windows operating systems.

Upgrade Information

Money Manager 7 was released in October 2011 and replaces Money Manager 6 / Money Manager 2000. It has been designed to run on Windows  11, Windows 10 and Windows 8.1. If you wish to upgrade to Money Manager 7 you will first need to purchase a new User Licence Code (at a discounted, upgrade price) from our shop.

For users of Money Manager and Final Accounts

There is NO associated version of Final Accounts which will work with Money Manager 7. If you need to use Final Accounts then we would recommend that you do not upgrade to Money Manager 7.

For users of Money Manager and Office Manager

Our Office Manager software was discontinued a number of years ago and will not be re-issued. Money Manager 7 will NOT work with any versions of Office Manager.

For users of Money Manager and Payroll Manager

Money Manager 7 is fully compatible with our Payroll Software.

What is the price of upgrading?

Money Manager Business Edition Upgrade price is £80 + VAT, Money Manager Personal Edition Upgrade price is £50 + VAT. In order to qualify for the upgrade price you will need to go to Buy Online Now and enter your current User Licence Code (ULC) into the relevant box on our online ordering system. If you are unsure of your ULC it can be found within your current Money Manager program by clicking ‘Help-System Info’ on the menu. Your ULC ends in the letter ‘U’ or ‘W’ (ignore anything shown in brackets).

Software Installation

We no longer supply our software on CD (or floppy disc!), nor do we provide a printed manual. Everything is done online, and the software can be downloaded at any time from our website using your new Money Manager 7 User Licence Code. The Help system is contained within the software itself, and is updated whenever the program itself is updated.

Data Compatibility

Yes, each licence is sold for a single user – however, it is quite normal and acceptable for this user to install the software on more than one computer (e.g. one at work, one at home) for their own use, using the same User Licence Code.

What is the difference between Money Manager 7 and older versions of Money Manager?

Money Manager 7 has been completely re-written so that it can be run on all recent versions of Windows, including Windows 7. The ‘look and feel’ of the program remains the same, so there is no significant re-learning process. We have added numerous extra features to the program, such as VAT online filing (Business Edition only), improved standard entries, PDF reports, no limits on the number of codes, user defined code lengths of up to 32 characters, more control over the presentation of reports, and fully-customisable detailed statements.

How do I install Money Manager 7 onto a new computer, and copy my data from an old computer?

  • Install Money Manager 7 onto your new computer
  • Copy your Money Manager data files from the ‘old’ computer to the ‘new’ one
  • Normally, your data files on the old computer will be in a folder called ‘C:\Money’.
  • You need to copy them into a folder called ‘Money’ which is in the ‘Document’ or ‘My Documents’ folder on the new computer.

How do I install Money Manager 7 onto a computer that already has a previous version installed?

  • The installation program should detect that you have a previous version of Money Manager and offer to copy all your data to a new folder (by default this is a sub-folder called “Money” in your ‘My Documents’ folder).We strongly recommend that you allow the program to do this.
  • Your original data will stay wherever it is now, and the new Money Manager 7 program will work on the new copies of the data.
  • As always, please make sure that you always have adequate backups of all your data.
