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

If accounting isn't your 'thing', but you need a good basic accounting software for your small- to medium-size business, FreshBooks is a great option. We often recommend FreshBooks to other businesses just getting started. The user-interface is very fast to learn and easy to use. It can be used simply as an invoicing tool, or in a more advanced manner for detailed accounting.

Cons

Anybill

  • Tax schema can be confusing

FreshBooks

  • Maybe, manual entry should be easier
  • Editing different rates for services on continuous invoices is very complicated.
  • The system doesn't keep an automatic numeration for the invoices, so it is necessary to keep it manually.

My main concern is not being able to have a higher amount of clients. The lite version is $15/mo which only allows you to invoice to up to 5 clients. My business manages about 12 regularly and a few random extra clients per a month. This means that I have to pay an extra $10 a month to do something I can do for free by myself. Yes, this app can save you time, but if you're good at staying on top of your expenses, hours, etc, there is no reason you can't do this without expending too much extra time on your own.

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 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.

  • The positive impact of FreshBooks is the opportunity to focus on the customer needs.
  • A positive impact is to give every person on the staff a certain goal to be reflected in the software.
  • Another positive impact is the way work is really attending to the details for our goal, building geographical data and business support.
