Brief Accounting has been the goto legal Mac billing solution for over 25 years. Brief Legal Software has established a reputation for providing excellent software solutions combined with outstanding technical support.
Whether you are a solo practitioner, a large firm, or somewhere in between, Brief Accounting is the billing and accounting solution that will work for you.
Brief Accounting is composed of Billing, Trust Accounting and Office Accounting, which are distinct yet fully integrated with one another to eliminate duplicate entry and reduce errors. Though Billing, Trust and Office Accounting are tightly integrated, they can be purchased separately, so you only need to purchase the modules that you require.
Brief Billing handles everything from slip entry to running prebills, editing slips, finalizing invoices and tracking your accounts receivable.
The Brief EnCounter timekeeper application, included with every Brief Billing purchase, is designed for extremely quick and easy slip entry. You will be assured to capture every billable minute and not to let any billable time slip away.
Invoices are flexible, displaying as little or as much detail as you desire. Clients with multiple matters are invoiced easily on a single invoice with consolidated client billing, and running a batch of a hundred invoices is just as simple and intuitive as running an invoice for a single file.
Brief Trust Accounting features simple and straightforward handling of trust funds. You will be assured exception-free audits and your trust accounting will meet all the trust requirements of your jurisdiction.
Trust funds can easily be applied to invoices and detailed trust ledgers can be displayed on the invoice itself or on a separate trust statement of account.
Bank reconciliation reports, trust liability statements, trust journals and trust checklist reports provide you with all the detail necessary to ensure your trust account is in balance.
Brief Office Accounting handles all of your general office bookkeeping. Vendor checks can be quickly posted and printed, simultaneously creating the associated disbursement slips in the Billing module, ensuring accurate recovery of client costs.
Brief Office Accounting includes the Accounts Payable module so you can stay on top of outstanding vendor invoices. Office Accounting features all the financial reports you will need and allows you to provide your accountant with the detailed financials they require for processing your year-end.
