Easily do your church or charity's bookkeeping, including simple and automatic fund accounting, with the ACCOUNTS software program.
There are three main versions of ACCOUNTS:
Whether you use the Local Network version, the Standalone version, or the Web Network Version, pricing does not depend on the number of computers on which you install ACCOUNTS.
The Local Network versions of ACCOUNTS, like all of the versions, are not web-based. They have to be installed on Windows computers. And they are designed for use on only a group of computers within one local network network - not over the Internet. If you need to share databases over the Internet, it would be best to use either the Standalone version with one of the sharing methods discussed in the Multiple User Options Help page, or the Web Network Version.
The ACCOUNTS Local Network version allows up to five users on five different computers (usually on your local-area network) to access the program simultaneously.
Most organizations only need the Standalone version of ACCOUNTS. That's because, even if they have a network, only one person really needs access to ACCOUNTS. That user might want to have ACCOUNTS installed on a computer in the organization's office, and another computer at home, but the Local Network version isn't usually used for that. (You can install multiple copies of the Standalone version, at no additional charge, and copy the database file back and forth between those computers.)

Install the Local Network Server version on the main user's computer, and the Local Network Client version on any additional users' computers. The Local Network Server version should normally not be installed on a real Windows server computer, but rather on an actual user's computer.
You can find installation help for the Local Network version in the program's Help or the manual (readable online at Network Versions of ACCOUNTS).
With the ACCOUNTS Local Network versions, the same license key is used for all installed copies of ACCOUNTS on your local network.
