Paisa – personal finance manager

Paisa is a personal finance manager that builds on top of the ledger double entry accounting tool.

Paisa is available in two formats: a Desktop Application and a CLI (Command Line Interface).

This is free and open source software.

Features include:

  • Your financial data never leaves your system. The app will never collect or send any data to any server.
  • The journal and configuration information are stored in plain text files that can be easily version controlled. You can collaborate with others by giving access to the files. The editor comes with syntax highlighting, auto completion, error checking and auto formatting.
  • Track the latest market price of your Mutual Fund, NPS Fund and Stock holdings. Paisa supports various price data providers, so it can keep track of the latest price of all your assets. It also allows the user to enter the price manually, so you can use it to revalue your assets like house, car, land, etc.
  • Track and budget your Expenses. You can customize the categories and subcategories to suit your needs.
  • Convert CSV, Excel and PDF files to Ledger journal.
  • Calculate your taxes, emis, etc using sheets. Paisa comes with a notepad calculator called sheet that can do all the calculations with the data from your ledger. The sheets are live and interactive, and will update automatically when you change the data in your ledger.
  • Track your goals.
  • View your recurring transactions and credit card bills. The calendar view will show you all the bills that are due in the current month. You can set the recurring period of the transaction, which is flexible enough to handle any kind of schedule like weekly, monthly, quarterly, last day of the month, last day of the quarter, etc.
