As advertised easy to use

Excellent Products and Customer Service

For many reasons, I stopped using Quicken when they moved to a subscription-based model, and ever since have been searching for an Excel template that would help me manage my personal finances. I wanted something that was easy to use and understand, but that was robust enough to accurately track income and expense AND provide reports to give me a snapshot of the year’s activity. Nothing I found could really come close. That is, until I stumbled upon the templates created by Mr. Alzamora. It’s an understatement to say I’ve been blown away by his products and the expertise he’s put in to creating them. I initially purchased one of the checkbook registers, but then realized that I needed the budget + checkbook register to be able to have the split category function that was so important to me. Both products are easy to use and understand right from the get-go, and it’s really just a matter of personal preference as to which one you need. I had several questions at first, and George was quick to respond with help and suggestions – wonderful customer service all the way through! Can’t say enough good things about these products and service. Thank you!

Hi Gail,
Thank you for your awesome review! I appreciate you taking the time to leave feedback for the Excel checkbook app. I'm glad that you enjoy the software and I hope to make it even better in the future.

Thanks Rod for being a repeat customer and your 5 star review of the Excel Calendar!

Brilliant Simplicity!

This checkbook register spreadsheet has simplified my personal financial recordkeeping. It's super easy to use, and any questions that come up have been quickly and thoroughly answered. I recommend this highly, it's worth many times the asking price.

Thank you for the awesome review!

My title says it all. Glad I bought it and moved away from the paper ledger.

Thanks Michael for the 5 star review! Glad that you like the Excel checkbook.

Love it!

Exactly what I was looking for!

Excel Budget v16

I have used excel budget v10 and v14 respectively. V16 is a nice upgrade to v15 but kindly make it a multicurrency template to enable us use the various currencies of the world in our budgets.

Works Great

It’s a very detailed spreadsheet. Be sure to check the year you are purchasing. It cannot be changed if you get the wrong one.

Thank you for your review!


Great for keeping track of multiple bank accounts in one workbook, budgeting, and spending.

Wish you could highlight some cells for drawing an eye back to a cell

Thank you for the 5-star review! Depending on your Excel version, another option to highlight a cell is to add a comment or note to a cell. This allows you to attach information to a cell that is independent of the cell contents / values, and it adds a colored indicator to the cell with the comment / note so that you can spot them. With Excel comments, you can even add a threaded / reply like discussion.

Great Register. Easy to use.

Initially a little tricky to navigate, once you get it, it's really easy and streamlined to use. Only wish you could show transfers between accounts, but given how wonderful everything else works, I highly recommend it...

Thank you for your feedback and positive review! You can enter transactions for transfers between accounts and view all of the transfers in one location using the filters within the master register (automatically combined transactions from all accounts/registers) and in summary using the custom Excel Pivot Table reports.

No more QuickBooks

I have been using quick books for several years. When I purchased a new laptop I couldn’t transfer the quick books program over because they now require you to pay a yearly fee to use it. So I started looking for a new program to use. I only use it for my personal home finances as a check book register. I purchased George’s Excel Checkbook Register. It’s easy to use works great and very affordable. I’m very pleased with it and very happy I found it.

Excellent App

I bought Georges Excel Checkbook Register v7.0 about 6 weeks ago and wanted to use it a while before reviewing. I'd been using Quicken for quite a few years and was tired of the constant renewal costs. As well, I don't need a lot of features, just a solid checkbook and good reporting for yearend tax purposes, which is why I didn't look at the versions with specific budgeting ability. I have been looking for a while for a Quicken replacement, and I'm glad I found this.

The app is well thought-out and executed; it works perfectly and I'm very happy with it. It's exactly what I was looking for. I'm a long-time (light) Excel user and don't really have the time or expertise to develop anything as comprehensive and useful as this. But George has done that, so it's well worth the small cost for an app that works so good.

Because I started the register a few months into the year, I back-filled my earlier register items for the year by importing them. I did set up a few categories that I needed and the app makes that easy.

All in all, I highly recommend it!

Not as technically gifted as I once thought.

The template itself was exactly what I needed. My problem is that I opened it on my phone to look at it. When I sat down with my iPad to work on it, the page said I reached my maximum downloads. So, it was a waste of my money. Sorry. It was probably all my fault.

Hi Dawn, I have emailed you a new link to download the Excel bill tracking software again.

This works well for me

I used Quicken for years but grew tired of the high cost. I was in search of a simple checkbook register program that would make it easy to reconcile and track expenses by category. Without a doubt, this spreadsheet does exactly what I want and has the capacity to do more. I am very pleased.

Great spreadsheet!

Makes balancing account super easy!

Quicken Killer

After 30+ years of Quicken and it’s constant mistakes and errors I have found a suitable replacement. Yes I have to fill the cells myself, but takes far less time diagnosing bad programming.

Budget for Excel v16 - A+

I have been a fan of George and Budget for Excel since v12. V12 was itself a great product, and with each version it keeps getting better and better. Many enhancements and tweaks have come along which makes Budget for Excel just perfect for my needs. Another very nice aspect is that George is very open to suggestions and "would be nice". Everything I have communicated to George has found its way into the next version. I like that. I like George. I like his product. Do yourself a favor and get Budget for Excel. You won't be disappointed!

Excellent check template

Have been a QuickBooks Pro user for years but this excel template is so much simpler and easy to use. Very straight forward and efficient. Product support is outstanding as the developer promptly answers questions and has a support page that gives you detailed instructions and tips on using the template. Additionally the developer encourages feedback from users as a way to incorporate new features in updates. Best money I spent on software and was up and running in less than 30 minutes.

Excel v15 Great!

Good product! Thanks for your work on making this!

Great System!

I used to keep a check register and a quicken register and I'd balance my checking account every month. Now I just need to use the Excel spreadsheet and that replaced my other systems! I can also add other accounts and keep track of them!
