5 Reasons You NEED Quickbooks

It might seem like this is a sponsored Quickbooks fan account, but really we just believe so much in the product! We talk about it a lot, so we figured we’d condense all of the reasons why we think you need it HERE!

1. Your spreadsheets are not cutting it

No one loves spreadsheets more than we do! BUT when it comes to actually doing your bookkeeping, Excel and Google Sheets really don’t cut it. Spreadsheets can’t create comprehensive Profit & Loss and Balance Sheets, which are integral to knowing your business. The reports that you are able to create are magical (and, again, necessary).


2. It’s a better way to take money

Streamlining the way you take money will make your life SO much better. AND truth is, you look so much more legit when you take money through Quickbooks vs. Venmo. Simple things like being able to include your logo and your billing address elevate the invoicing experience! OH and you can create a invoice via a link that you can email or text.
It also makes it so much easier to know who owes you money and when it is coming in. 

3. Do you hate gathering end of year documents?

Are you combing through your actual bank statements at the end of the year to make sure you’re maximizing your tax deductions? No one wants to have to gather up a bunch of physical documents. Quickbooks will do this for you, so when your CPA asks you for the breakdown – you have it! 

4. Sales Tax!!!!

Sales Tax is tricky, so making sure it’s all right from the start is incredibly important. Quickbooks helps you set that up and charge correctly! It’s also easy to run all of the reports for remitting the correct amount by county. 

5. Do you really know your bottom line?

If you aren’t using accounting software, you honestly probably don’t. Looking at your bottom line monthly, quarterly, and yearly can help you understand how much you’re actually bringing in and taking home. It’s a great way to compare with past periods to see if you’re growing or if you need to find opportunities to cut back.
