I do use FreshBooks daily and I recommend it heartily - it's been an absolute God send!
I belong in a very large group of interior designers on Facebook. Many of them operate small businesses from their home or a small outside office. Often the question is asked "Which is the best accounting system to use for small business?"
Personally, I had searched through so many different accounting and bookkeeping software systems, even trying QuickBooks, Sage, Simply Accounting, and so many others, but I found them so difficult and time consuming to use and especially to set up. FreshBooks is so quick, easy to set up and it even imports all your expenses automatically. Just connect your bank accounts, then click the button and items are imported within a few minutes.
If you have any questions at all their support team is amazing and responds to any questions within a few hours! They call themselves support Rock stars - and they truly are.
Try it free for one month and let me know what you think!
They also have great videos on how to set up your books online and the FAQ area covers all the basics. Here is a simple video that they recently put out called “What is an Invoice?”.
The second video below "Best invoicing app" talks about their new app which makes it easy to quickly invoice your client. You can easily create an invoice on the spot - even while you are still in their home or office. This saves time and is one less thing for you to worry about once you get back into your own office.
I hope you check out Freshbooks and love it just as much as we do!
