Yes you can use python for application development. I have created an 
application that generated various reports, certificates, interacts with 
database and provides a GUI, all in python :-). For GUI I used Tkinter 
but you can use any other library as per your choice. I haven't done any 
project like accounting package. But I am sure you can easily do that in 
python and in a very less time as compared to developing that in C++. 
Moreover you get os independent code free of cost with Python :-).
