You are right, the best of available choises :). We have tried also commercial bookkeeping software, but ware not able to afford any yet. I have tried to migrate to 1.3 also several times, but have not managed. I do not remember exact cause. Was it perl errors because of wrong perl libraries or database conversion problems or both. That's why I used 1.2 so long. Also, in case of 1.4 I still am not able to migrate. I installed new vm and got 1.4 working, but was unable to import v1.2 databases, so I started from clean database again. I also could not import chart of accounts. I managed somehow to export coa from 1.2 to csv but unable to import to 1.4.
You are right. But as I am doing bookkeeping myself, I am not so much worried about fraud :).
Right again. But the reports look much cleaner and easier to read without the old transactions and their reversals. If there would be possible to get reports without wrong invoices and their reversals it might also be the solution.
Most common mistake is putting wrong account to transaction. For example in case of vendor invoice I put the cost of good to assets but later decide to change to expense. I would need to change just the number of account in vendor invoice without any mess in balance sheet and income statement (if I would need to reverse the invoice as a whole). For example in HansaWorld it is possible to change account number in transactions later.
This sounds great, but it would not resolve the mess in reports as I described above. Of course I name it "mess" but you probably name it "correct".
Another solution I have thought, would be append only auditing log, where all the changes are written, so the fraud would not be possible, but reports ware clean.
I am glad if my thoughts help to improve the program. Another problem is also my poor knowledge of English accounting terminology which makes it especially hard to learn all the possibilities of LedgerSMB. Some things would be much easier if I would know which button to press :).
