We know what it’s like to be a small business owner. There are always new and past deadlines to meet, a never-ending mountain of emails to answer and changing projects that require attention. Essentially, there are just never enough hours in the day.
On top of growing your business and keeping your clients impressed, you have to ensure your books are in order. Accounting is just an unavoidable part of running a small business. You know you can’t ignore it, so maybe you can fit it in on Saturday afternoon or after dinner sometime through the week.
Or, perhaps you should simply automate your accounting chores with FreshBooks.
Accounting Automation Just Makes Sense
FreshBooks is a software accounting application that takes care of tedious and time-wasting tasks. It makes invoicing, billing, and collecting payments fast and painless.
FreshBooks’ co-founder Mike McDerment is a web designer who realized the billing process was taking up far too much of his time. To take his time back he created a simple and intuitive accounting software solution. FreshBooks prevents the types of accounting errors that can cost you money or get you into trouble with the tax man.
A few other people also liked Mike’s accounting solution and decided to use it – over 10 million of them in fact.
