Accounting software plays an important role in carrying out accounting processes that are fast, efficient, accurate and in accordance with applicable standards. With the emergence of various accounting software that offers a variety of features, users, both individuals and companies, often experience difficulty in determining the software that best suits their needs. The aim of this research is to develop a decision support system that makes it easier to choose accounting software through the application of the COPRAS approach and the Rank Reciprocal weighting technique. The Rank Reciprocal approach is used to rank or weight the criteria given by the decision-maker. The COPRAS (Complex Proportional Assessment) approach focuses on cognitive aspects so that it can accommodate the preferences and subjective assessments of decision-makers. Based on the case study that has been carried out, the highest to lowest utility value results are obtained, namely Zahir Online (A2), which obtained a score of 100. Since the decision support system's output yields a result that is identical to that of computations made by hand, it is deemed legitimate. Apart from that, the usability test obtained an average score of 91%, which proves that the system is in accordance with its usability and what is needed by its users.
