KMyMoney is the personal finance manager by KDE.[1][2][3] Its operation is similar to Microsoft Money[4] and Quicken.[5] It supports different account types, categorisation of expenses and incomes, reconciliation of bank accounts and import/export to the “QIF” file format. Through plugins, direct download using the OFX and HBCI formats is also possible. CSV imports and exports are also possible via plugins.

Features[edit]

Source:[6]
The program is configured to allow views of the data at several levels.

  • Accounts - Kmymoney uses the term Account to represent assets and liabilities.
  • Institutions - Institutions is an optional field, but if used, data associated with an institution such as a bank, a broker, a credit card can be viewed easily. Use of Institutions also allows a grouping of accounts.
  • Payees - The program accumulates a list of payees. Clicking on the "Payee" view, the user can drill down to transactions associated with a specific payee.
  • Categories - Categories is a common feature of accounting software. In Kmymoney, Categories and sub-categories are used to classify expense and income entries.
  • Sub-categories - Categories and sub-categories allow transactional data to be rolled up into a parent child relationship.
  • Tags - Tags allow the user to further delineate transactional data. A tag can be used to group several categories and accounts together as needed.
  • Investments - Kmymoney can help track investments.

Other features of the program include check printing via a plugin and several options to retrieve investment prices. Repetitive entries can be scheduled. For example, a paycheck requiring several lines can be set up in the Schedules module.

Released under the GNU General Public License, KMyMoney is free software.
