May 31, 2012 (Rockaway, NJ) – Acclivity today announced the Canadian version of AccountEdge Pro 2012 for Mac and Windows. The latest version of their small business accounting software features a redesigned command centre, mileage tracking, and the ability to create and maintain retainers.

“We’re happy to announce the 2012 version of AccountEdge in Canada,” said Tom Nash, Managing Partner. “The Canadian version has inherited all of the features from the US 2012 version, and leads with a few new features, as well.”

Updated Command Centre

AccountEdge’s command centre has been redesigned with an emphasis on usability. While retaining the familiar flow chart layout, the new Side Bar and additional menus, Sync and Lists, make it easier to read and navigate your company file.

Mileage tracking

AccountEdge Pro introduces mileage tracking, allowing the user to add vehicles and keep detailed notes about business-related trips. Track date, vehicle used, trip notes, apply mileage to a specific job, and add mileage to customer invoices.


Retainer management lets attorneys, graphic designers, and others that work on retainer receive payments and add expenses to a retainer account to pay bills on behalf of clients. A minimum retainer balance can be set, and replenishment requests and printing of customer retainer statements can be completed with a single click.

Create multiple billing rates

AccountEdge Pro users can create a billing rate matrix, setting multiple rates for the same activity. These rates can be selected depending on customer or employee for total flexibility when billing for activities.

AccountEdge 2012 also contains numerous forms enhancements, more precise sales reporting, and updated company file maintenance capabilities.
