What is KMyMoney?

Put simply, KMyMoney is a personal finance manager for KDE. It enables users of open source operating systems to keep careful track of their personal finances by providing a broad array of financial features and tools.

The principal goals of the project are:

  • Feature Parity.  KMyMoney intends to provide all important features found in the commercially-available personal finance managers. Although this release is closer than ever to that goal, there is still work to be done.

  • Ease of Use.  KMyMoney strives to be the easiest open source personal finance manager to use, especially for the non-technical user.

  • Correctness.  Based on tried and tested double entry accounting principles KMyMoney ensures that your finances are kept in correct order.
