For business

Running your own business is tough and managing the financial side is tougher. Trust me, I know. So start using Intuits Quickbooks software.

Quickbooks will mitigate or completely eliminate common issues business owners face.

As a small business owner I can tell you first hand that Quickbooks has improved the way I run my business. Over the last year it saved me on average, 42 hours a month, giving me more time to focus on my clients than on my finances.

I'm not the only one who has improved their business with this software, 5.6 million others did too!

For those of you who aren't familiar with Quickbooks or other software from Intuit like Turbotax then just know that Quickbooks is simple accounting software that is shockingly easy to use. No accounting degree needed.

I'll show you 5 ways Quickbooks can improve your business and if you stick around till the end, I'll give you a gift.

1.Save time, automate everyday tasks

Time is money especially for businesses, big or small. Remember how I said I saved on average 42 hours a month with this software? Well that's due to Quickbooks ability to automate everyday tasks like mileage tracking and invoicing.

Download the app, sign in and turn on mileage tracking, your all set. Quickbooks will automatically track and record your driving, all you have to do is set whether that particular trip was personal or business.

It's a lovely feature to have, you can turn in off too to avoid tracking unnecessary miles. Just be sure to turn in back on, or you'll end up like me, entering it manually.

Sending an invoice to your clients after setting up the initial look and wording is a two click task. You can even choose to include a pay now button which gives your customers an easy way to pay by credit/debit card or a bank transfer. Which helps you to get paid faster.

2. Stay on top your cash flow, know whats going in and out.

In a glance you can see who owes you, how much and when their payment is due. If the date is close, with a few clicks, you can send friendly email reminders to your clients.

In nice to see the money that comes in but not so much the money going out, however you can track and automate your spending by setting up recurring payments and categorizing your expenses.

You have the option to link your bank and/or credit card accounts to automate the tracking of your cash flow.

With the mobile app you can snap a picture of receipts and add it to your expense in a jiffy.

All of your income and expenses and then shown in a simple and easy to read graph that tells you how your doing. If your a hard copy kind of person, you have access to multiple reports such as profit & loss, balance sheet and dozens of other reports. All of that in a single click.

3. Easily stay organized and efficient

Organization is key when running a business sanely. Quickbooks can automatically manage your shipments and keep track of inventory on hand and per item cost.

All your info is available in one place, you'll always know where to find it. No more digging in files. I really can't tell you how much I appreciate having software that keeps me organized. When I first started my business, I was doing things by hand, which was a nightmare.

4. Take care of business anywhere

From the coffee shop to the airport lounge, follow up on a late invoice, run payroll or update customer data from your mobile or tablet. Depending on which plan you choose, you have can access Quickbooks using the Desktop program, web version or on Mobile.

Your not tied to your desk, this is especially useful when your on a job and when your done, you can send your invoice immediately.

5. Stay prepared for tax time

No one likes filing taxes, but Quickbooks makes it a little easier. Quickbooks can keep track of payments to subcontractors, so come January your ready to issue 1099s.  

Automatically import income and expenses, deductions from Quickbooks to Intuits tax software Turbotax in one click. No need to spend manually entering everything and risking making a mistake.

Pay W-2 employees and file payroll taxes with QuickBooks. Just enter hours and pay by check or direct deposit.  Let QuickBooks run and file payroll taxes for you. You'll get guaranteed error-free paychecks and payroll taxes.

If your one of the lucky few who has an accountant prepare your taxes, you can share instant access to all of your records with your accountant (for free). It's better way to collaborate that emailing excel spreadsheets!

Over the past year since I have been using it, time and time again Quickbooks has relieved the stress of managing the financial side of my business. With tax time coming soon, it gets better.
