    AND CO

    Invoicing, Expenses, Contracts & Payments for freelancers

    Highly recommend AND CO to create and track your invoices and expenses, all in one super easy to use and simple tool. Everything is done automatically and in such minimal time. It's an app that's really focused on you getting your work done, and also has a personal Chief Operator for any and all questions. Most important, it establishes a workflow that you and your small biz would want to get behind. Download your expense reports with a quick click, get everything in a perfectly categorized spreadsheet, the list goes on. Try it out!
    Ideal for early stage and transition from solopreneur to small biz.

      I've tried every time-tracking/invoicing app there is for freelancers, but when I finally tried AND CO I was instantly sold!

      Both the web app and mobile app are a delight to use. They are fast and just work without any hiccups. The features are great and have helped me save a ton of time on admin work. Sending an invoice or a contract is a breeze. You also get a real, live human to ask for help! Need to invoice a client? Have a question about your taxes? Simply send a message to your CO and they will always have your back!

      Their dev team is also great! I requested a couple features and they were released within a few weeks. That showed me that the team at AND CO listen to their customers and give me confidence to use this app for the long-term.

      It's not often that I fall in love with an app. AND CO is the exception. Highly recommended.

    • Makes it super easy to invoice in a beautiful simple way that clients love. Offering credit card, PayPal and bank ACH payments really feels like it helps me get paid faster and looks professional. It's also a breeze to confirm that I've received payment and is helpful to get reminders of outstanding invoices. Love hearing the chime when money rolls in.


      Can't believe I forgot to mention the support crew. I'm so used to banking/financial apps making service an afterthought. Whenever I have a question or issue they're on it within minutes and always eager to help.

    I use it to create and send invoices and keep track of expenses. If you are an US business owner, you would probably find your bank listed there to keep track of your bank account.

    Xero is super easy to use. Everything is done automatically and it's not expensive. Bank accounts can be synchronized through live feeds so there is never any need to manually import data.

      We use Xero to control our income, expanses, VAT predictions. Great tool. It takes a while find out how to control all over Xero but in the end it is huge time server and we know pretty sure how the business stands.

    I've used Wave and Quickbooks pretty extensively. You can't beat Wave on price (free) but QB has a nicer UI and more features. Also if you need to hire outside help to set up/manage your books, QB has a large community of pros ready to help.
