a. Accountants don't like PACE
False, at least for those accountants that have made the effort to understand the chart of accounts
b. PACE cannot do a proper year end
False. The year-end procedure is simple and consists of just two 2"-binders to deliver to the accountant.
c. The GL doesn't work
False. The GL works 100% correctly if the bookkeeper understands all the accounts

e. Must print out a Journal for each account for each month

i. Can only print to dot matrix printers
