If you're sole trading or freelancing without employee, you don't have to use accounting software.   You can consider using Excel spreadsheet for your accounting record.  Unless you have a lot of inventory, most of the things you are going to record are purchase orders and invoices and Excel can do all that easily.  You can record your expenses as well.  Any accountant can work with Excel spreadsheet, convert it to financial statements and work out your tax.
