Version 6.0.11 - 5 Apr 2017

  • Fixed an issue affecting receipts for partial payments. When sending a receipt for a sale that was partially paid and has subsequently been fully paid, the amount on the receipt incorrectly showed the total amount paid. For invoices fully paid in one payment, the invoice details are shown on the receipt. For partial payments, only the amount paid is shown.

Version 6.0.10 - 2 Apr 2017

Version 6 - 23 Dec 2016

  • Improvements to how Easy Books pre-fills values in transaction forms. Easy Books will learn based on previous entries, now also making use of transactions in the same account category.

  • Changed wording for the Transaction Type when showing refund payments for credit notes.

Version 5.3.2 - 7 Jun 2016

  • Fixed an issue affecting CSV import. When importing sale transactions by product name instead of account name the app could fail to recognise any tax fields.

Version 5.3.1 - 1 Jun 2016

  • Fixed an issue affecting CSV import. Importing transactions with Account 1 selected as a customer account and Account 2 selected as a product incorrectly displayed an error message.
  • Improved behaviour when adding new transactions. Previously, adding a transaction could start with defaults from previous transactions including those with inactive accounts. The app now excludes any inactive accounts and will only suggest linked accounts using previous transactions linked to those still active.

Version 5.3 - 25 May 2016

  • Changed the Balance Sheet report to show Investment accounts under the heading "Long-term assets".
  • Fixed an issue affecting the Monthly Breakdown report. When running the report for periods of 24 months or longer, the number of months was incorrect, leading to incorrect average (per month) figures.

Version 5.2.2 - 18 Mar 2016. (Direct download only)

  • Fixed an issue affecting CSV files exported from the Monthly Breakdown report. When budget figures were included and percentage differences were greater than one thousand percent, the formatting was incorrect leading to extra cells appearing.

Version 5.2 - 8 Mar 2016

  • Improvements to Online Sync. All updates are cross-checked after the database changes have been committed.
  • Improvements to organisation of accounts. Accounts can now be moved from one container to another, or from their basic category into a container and vice-versa regardless of whether they have statements. This would otherwise lock the account into a single category or container.
  • Fixed an issue affecting the import of transactions. Importing transactions to accounts with names containing brackets caused the import to fail with the error message "Category not found".

Version 5.1.3 - 10 Feb 2016

  • Fixed an issue affecting received payments in foreign currency amounts. For sales raised in the business currency with a customer defined in the same currency, foreign currency payments received were not given a base currency equivalent amount.

Version 5.1.2 - 10 Feb 2016. (Direct download only)

  • Fixed an issue affecting the Flat Rate (Cash) VAT scheme. Filing VAT under this scheme with adjustments for deferred VAT produced a different amount in the HMRC(VAT) account than shown on the report. If you have been affected by this issue, run the VAT Report, click "Undo Last Return" followed by "File Return". This will correct the accounts.

Version 5.1.1 - 25 Jan 2016

  • Minor improvements and bug fixes.

Version 5.1 - 20 Dec 2015

  • Added the currency XCD (East Caribbean Dollar).
  • Added an option to turn off plain-speaking terms and instead use terms such as "Debit" and "Credit". This option is available under advanced preferences (option key).

  • Fixed an issue affecting the presentation of aggregate sales and purchases in the VAT report. VAT was correctly reported in the main report and calculation, but if the sum of transactions per expense or income account was zero, the VAT was not displayed in the tables of aggregated sales and purchases.

Version 5.0.6 - 28 Nov 2015

  • Improved the display of currency amounts. When a three letter currency code is used the extra padding before the first digit helps make the amount more easily legible.
  • Improved behaviour of the sales list screen. Previously editing an item on the same date as another item would re-order it to the bottom of the list.

Version 5.0.5 - 24 Nov 2015. (Direct download only)

  • Fixed an issue affecting the Trial Balance report. Under some circumstances the report could reload continuously.

Version 5.0.4 - 19 Nov 2015. (Direct download only)

  • Fixed an issue affecting the Trial Balance report. If foreign currency accounts were grouped under a container the gains/losses figure was incorrectly reported.
  • Fixed an issue where restoring from a backup containing foreign currency accounts may have caused the application to become unresponsive.
  • Fixed a sync issue affecting the display of foreign currency balances in Accounts screen. Under certain conditions the balance was shown incorrectly after syncing changes. The issue was mitigated by running the Trial Balance report, which notices and fixes discrepancies.
  • Fixed a sync issue where sales that were fully paid and entered using an older version of the app did not show the paid tick in the latest version. The issue was mitigated by running the Trial Balance report, which notices and fixes discrepancies.

Version 5.0.3 - 12 Nov 2015

  • Fixed an issue in reports affecting the exchange rate gains table when shown. Part of the table could be blank with no further information visible.

Version 5.0.2 - 6 Nov 2015

  • Fixed an issue affecting reports. Currency amounts were presented incorrectly if the region settings defined a comma for the decimal separator. This issue would affect anyone using currency formatting such as 1.234,56.

Version 5.0.1 - 5 Nov 2015. (Direct download only)

  • Fixed an issue affecting the Best Sellers report. Credit notes are now taken into account.
  • Exchange rates obtained from the web are shown in the exchange rate list along with rates set manually.
  • Minor UI improvements.

Version 5 - 5 Nov 2015

Many people have requested this feature and we're very pleased to have been able to add it in a way that doesn't affect single-currency businesses. For more information about it, see Using Foreign Currencies.
  • Time tracker hours per day can now be set as a decimal number of hours.
  • Added an automatic backup feature. When you update the app to a new version, a backup of all business data is taken and stored locally. You should still use the Easy Books Online Sync or manual backup feature to create your own backups and store them off-site.
  • Fixed an issue where reports saved as ZIP format may have contained a blank HTML file.
  • Fixed an issue affecting stock and services where the default sales price was set excluding tax but could be presented as inclusive of tax on invoices.

  • Fixed an issue where sidebar content could stay visible even when the sidebar was set to hidden.

Version 4.7 - 15 May 2015

  • Invoices now include the currency code (ISO 4217) in the grand total line. Previously the app picked up the currency format from device settings. Whereas Easy Books is a single currency app, this prevented use of businesses with different exponents in the same device. For example, the British Pound contains 100 Pence, the Bahraini dinar is divided into 1,000 fils and the Vietnamese dong no longer uses a minor currency unit. A new business setting in Easy Books allows you to select the currency manually.
  • The Profit and Loss report has been improved. You can now choose between accrual (standard) or cash basis accounting. When using cash accounting the value of unpaid invoices are applied as adjustments to the income and expenses. See the blog post Cash Accounting in Easy Books.
  • Improved pre-filling of fields when entering a new transaction. The description text is now matched with previous entries and can be used as a cue for the app to pre-fill the other fields such as Account 2, amount and details.
  • Customer and Supplier based reports now use today's date by default. Financial reports still run to the end of the open period.
  • Non-billable hours in Time Tracker are now included in sales invoices.
  • Fixed a UI issue affecting the translucent sidebar on Yosemite. When the menu bar was active the sidebar was not always properly redrawn, leaving opaque areas.

Version 4.2.19 - 2 Feb 2015.

  • Fixed an issue affecting Time Tracker screen. If long descriptions were used the description spilled over the hours and balance columns.

  • Added the options to save and send reports from the File > Share menu.
