Georges Budget for Excel v18

I recently upgraded to Georges Budget for Excel v18. The spreadsheet is an excellent replacement for Quicken, without the annual subscription. George responds quickly, to email questions. I highly recommend his products.

Hi Greg,
Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad to hear you are able to benefit from the budget spreadsheet. Being able to cancel subscription services that are no longer needed is a good reason to celebrate!

Personal Finance Software Budget for Excel v17

This is my second budget software I’ve purchased from George Alzamora. I found the v-17 version met all my needs. The built in pivot tables are great and that is what I was missing. I’ve purchased several different spreadsheets from different designers that doesn’t even come close to V17. V17 does everything you would want from just starting to build your wealth when you are young and until you retire. I’m retired and very pleased with this software.

Hi Tim,
I appreciate you choosing to use my budget software to manage your personal finances and for taking the time to leave a great review! I am glad to hear that you like the pivot tables, which are my favorite feature because they allow customers like you to be creative and make fast customizable reports that fit their financial needs.

Outstanding application -- as always. Still my favorite.

George has once-again done an excellent job with his enhancements with V18. This product remains my favorite budgeting and tracking application. Unless you need the all the over-complex features from a package such as Quicken then V18 is exactly what you need! Very robust and powerful, yet familiar and very easy to use. Job well-done!

Hi Jonathan,
Thank you for the awesome review and for being a loyal 6-time repeat customer. Your feedback related to product improvements and design ideas is greatly appreciated. I'll take simple over complex any day!

Great Template!

Simple, intuitive, just what I needed. Bye bye, Quicken!

Hi Bonnie,

Great product

Thanks for a great product and fast delivery

Hi Darrell,
Thanks for being a long-time customer of multiple products and for your great review of the checkbook software!

The Perfect Solution

Georges Excel Checkbook Register v11 is awesome! I've had at least three versions and each one is better that the last. George has been so helpful answering the questions I had. I am a lifelong user of Georges Excel Checkbook Register!

Hi Rev. J.B.
Thank you for being a repeat customer and your 5 star review! It is great to hear that you like the new checkbook software.

Great for Tracking Home Renovation Costs

I looked all over to find the right Excel template. I’m so glad I found Georges Budget for Excel v14. It's perfect! Being a novice at Excel, I could never have created what I need to track the costs on my home renovation projects. This template does everything I need and more!

Great product

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.

2023 Calendar

I purchase this product every year, and have found it to be an excellent product that I would be happy to recommend.

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

Doesn’t seems to work with IOS Numbers app

I thought if the spreadsheet would work on a Mac it would work with Numbers

Hi Bill,
The car loan spreadsheet template was created using Microsoft Excel. The car loan calculator works great on Mac computers as long as your computer has one of the required versions of Microsoft Excel noted on the product page. The Numbers app (which is Apple Inc. proprietary spreadsheet) is not compatible with all the features and formulas of Microsoft Excel.

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!

good simple bank ledger that is easy to use

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.

Georges Budget for Excel v12.0

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.
