Tax Payments to multiple states using one check request. You also will not have to set up multiple vendors in your system.

We used Freshbooks as an alternate source of invoicing (we use Stripe for recurring billing) and it works well in this setup. It is not meant for invoicing for Software-as-a-Service products.

Cons

  • Tax schema can be confusing
No photo available
  • Multi currency support - FreshBooks currently doesn't enable us enter our financial transactions in our local currency. Thus to use FreshBooks, we enter our financials in basic digits which can sometime be very confusing.
  • Templates - FreshBooks invoice templates are currently limited to what is provided in the tool by default. It would be nice to have the ability to customize our own invoice to meet our demands.

At the current needs of our business, FreshBooks suits us perfectly - it allows online access by our accountant to the system for GST purposes, easy input of expenses and tracking of Profit and Loss statements. FreshBooks customer service is great as well - very understanding and accommodating.

The FreshBooks user interface is easy to learn. In terms of ongoing, every day use, FreshBooks is very simple and allows me to do all the things I need to with an accounting software, while not having to be an accountant. I can use FreshBooks on the go with the mobile app as well

I haven't changed my mind since my first evaluation. Freshbooks is still meeting my needs, easy to use, etc.

Alternatives Considered

I have not used other products. We use to create multiple check requests every month to process different payments in house.

Years ago we started using FreshBooks and then decided to look for a less expensive option. After trying multiple solutions, we went back to FreshBooks and haven't looked back since. That was over 10 years ago.No service can compete with their functionality, pricing, and support. All of the other services lacked important features and/or didn't respond to pre-sale/support questions.

  • FreshBooks has allowed us to simply take this problem off the board since it has solved our need to accomplish quick invoicing, time tracking and expense management.
