What's the best finance tracking app for the self-employed?

I don't need the feature-bloat of Quickbooks, but Google Sheets is not flexible enough. I don't have employees, and 90% of my business is digital sales (website templates, SaaS, etc.). Thanks!

    AND CO

    Invoicing, Expenses, Contracts & Payments for freelancers

    I might be bias ;) AND CO lets you track your income and expenses, no matter if you invoiced through the app or not. So if you sell things, you can easily file that income in the app as well. It's on Web, iOS and Android.
    Great UI and fits perfectly with the other features. Very smooth.

      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.

      No matter if you're a self-employed person looking for an accounting solution or a small/medium enterprise co-operating with you accountant, FreshBooks makes accounting much easier to handle.
