I ran a small business on GnuCash for 5 years and it works very nicely for
that. But it doesn't (yet) do inventory management. It will handle invoices
and payments, accounts receivable and payable, reporting etc. One tip, though,
is not to use the built-in printing for reports; it produces poor results
(using gtk-html). Instead, save the HTML and import into OpenOffice, and print
from there. IME, this gives much better results (e.g. GC would split lines
across pages, which looks very bad on an invoice).
