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
  • FreshBooks isn't a full-service solution for your accounting/bookkeeping needs as it doesn't allow you to easily track income. You have to add in dummy accounts (which takes up client spots and counts against your total number of clients) and then manually add in the information.
  • FreshBooks doesn't allow you to have staff members on your account unless you pay them at least $39.95 plus tax per month.
  • In order to have no limit on the number of clients you have you have to pay at least $29.95 plus tax per month.
  • Doesn't allow you to have your payments deposited into your bank account.

High cost is the main reason. Lack of real accounting abilities is a secondary reason. We're moving to Xero.

It's a fantastic app, and it's very easy to use. I will admit, I don't use it so much anymore however because I already have great systems in place and I also don't like the limit on clients for the lite cost. I feel at $15/mo you should be able to manage more clients than 5. I don't use as many as 50 clients a month, but I certainly manage more than 5 as a freelancer.But overall, the usability is easy and I'd recommend it to people who don't already know how to manage their books.

I think that their online tools and resources are great and concise but would like it more if you knew what improvements were in the pipeline. There are a number of features or tweaks that I've seen suggested but I don't really know if anyone from FreshBooks is listening to them or if they're being worked on.

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.

The software we selected is because the learning curve is very kind. Once we draw the way we manage our business, we understand we have to make some changes in order to adjust to the new software. This software allows us to reflect every aspect of the business, costs and income, every one of them detailed. The software allows us to let technical people manage their own time and prepare products and send tickets to the administration department to send invoices, focusing on the geographical job. This also allows us to manage the whole business and to know each other as a small business to run.

  • FreshBooks has allowed us to keep track of recurring client invoices and payments saving us time and money.
  • Time tracking has made sure we are correct with all timed projects as well as receiving the payments for it.
  • Time - saved us so much time being able to easily and effectively create estimates and invoices.
