Business accounting software is application software that processes and records the enterprise accounting transactions in functional modules such as payroll, accounts receivable, accounts payable, trial balance, and general ledger. These software can either be developed in-house by the organizations who want to use it, or can be purchased from third party software providers. The software may be cloud based that can be accessed anywhere on any device connected to internet, at any time, or it may be deployed on desktop. It varies greatly in terms of its cost and complexity.
