Outright is a cloud-based accounting solution for small businesses. The software allows executives to manage sales and expenses, calculate taxes and facilitate electronic payments.
Outright’s invoicing feature allows business professionals to generate and share invoices with clients after receiving payments. In addition, the software sends an automated “thank you” email to clients following payments in order to maintain customer engagement.
Outright’s reporting feature collects, analyzes and summarizes business performance metrics to generate reports and gain insights. In addition, the feature enables business owners and managers to visualize data in real time by generating graphs such as pie charts, bar charts and histograms.
Outright also enables professionals to compute and file taxes by automatically filing a Schedule C form upon receiving payments. In addition, it enables users to track taxes that are outstanding with the government.
Outright secures information by using 256-bit data encryption and fulfilling TRUSTe standards.

I've used Outright/GoDaddy Bookkeeping for about 3 years now. I started before it was purchased by GoDaddy, and honestly was a little leery when I heard that it was changing hands. I have not been disappointed. I sell on Etsy and am getting ready to fire up my own e-commerce site and it's been perfect for what I need! I don't think it would be a great fit for everyone, but here are the things that I love about how it works for me:
- Integration with Etsy (you see every penny in fees laid out for you)
- Integration with all major credit cards and banks
- The ability to separate personal from business expenses
- The ability to quickly and manually enter sales or expenses for cash transaction
- Ease of use (I'm not a natural bookkeeper or accountant - this makes it easy!)
I went from manually keeping track of all my expenses to Outright and it saves me hours upon hours every month. It's worth the money!
This book keeping software does not do what they promise. Great for personal use but not for business. I was out of the refund window didn't have time to test it. "which I realize" I was in the wrong. But they didn't offer to give me store credit or anything. Got the software started using quickly realized I made a mistake this software is very limited for what it provides. Not useful for my type of business. I worked with support rather try to improve product they say well your outside your refund window. Not as good as it was when it was outright. I will slowly be moving my domains away from them. Does not remain linked to ANY of my banks nor does it work anything close to QuickBooks.
Too Simple great for personal accounting
not good for business won't even connect to banks or chase stable.
Outright was never the most advanced or accurate accounting SAAS tool in the world but it did the job more or less I guess. It's leading quality is being super super simplified so that you don't need any accounting knowledge to understand it. It consumed financial data automatically which was a big win. So for a one-person business it cut down a lot on bookkeeping overhead.
Then GoDaddy bought them out and instead of letting the product operate independently they rolled it into GoDaddy head first. Changed the name to "GoDaddy Bookkeeping", make you pay by logging into your GoDaddy account etc. Not long after the acquisition they basically took my account hostage and wouldn't let me access it again unless I signed up for a full year subscription in advance.
GoDaddy invested a little into improving the software since the acquisition, but it seemed to have been a one-time facelift and the core product is still exactly the same as it was. I'm increasingly concerned they'll just pull the plug on it one day. And it's a little disturbing that GoDaddy has access to all my business financial data. Of the vendors I use, I trust GoDaddy the least, so lord knows what they're doing with my financial records. It occurred to me GoDaddy could easily start warehousing and selling my business data so I'm making it a priority to get off this platform ASAP.
It kinda worked. Very simple to use for non-accountants.
Owned by GoDaddy.
I used to hate accounting! Fortunately Outright is good enough to fit my needs (which are not too high since I am a small business owner). There are two categorizations: Income and Outcome. Setting up new categories is quite complicated but once it is done you can lean back.
Good if your clients use Paypal
