QL Home Finance is a program designed to help you manage your finances at home. It is not as limited as QL Bank Account in that not only can it list and calculate your income and outgoings, but it will also analyse and update your personal accounts as they are stored on your Sinclair QL home computer.

The program allows you to rapidly enter payments and receipts into the system, and see all account balances as you go. Standing Orders can be entered as a specific date of each month, the last day of each month or annually and are automatically added to (or withdrawn) from each account.

Entering data allows you to keep the date, payee/payer details, amount, reference number, type of transaction and a description. You can edit entries afterwards and view entries in blocks of 6 items at a time. Pressing F1 or F2 when entering a field recalls information previously typed into that field (alphabetically) which helps speed up the process of entering information.

Both single entry and double entry book keeping is supported (although single entry is limited to three accounts), with analysis by a variety of parameters, including the type of account, description of item, type of expense etc.

Unfortunately, the program does not support more than 128K memory.
