as a small business owner one of the first and most important tools you're going to invest in is invoicing an accounting software now obviously in 2017 software and the traditional sense doesn't really exist anymore most software or apps are being hosted in the cloud and freshbooks was one of the first accounting software is to offer that service completely cloud-based so let's take a look at and review FreshBooks in full and

see if it's worth your hard-earned cash so as soon as you log into freshbooks for the first time then each time you log in you'll get the dashboard and here you get a complete but also brief overview of your entire financial situation for your business starting at the top of outstanding revenue all of your customers that still owe you money and having paid invoices and you can check in multiple currencies if you go

further down you can get a quick overview of your total profits anywhere from month by month or by quarter for any period of time that you started your business and if you go further down you can keep track of your expenditures for the same time windows from any point of time starting and ending any currency and it breaks these fences down into categories to get a quick overview of where you're spending your money

and then if you go at the bottom class feature is the advanced reports and this is one of the coolest features FreshBooks has basically just takes all of your data and then one click you can get these quick powerful reports they give you deeper insight into your business so this is the overall look of the dashboard it's a great way to see where your business stance financially a good accounting software is only as good

as its invoicing capabilities and thankfully since FreshBooks got to start with just invoicing and that's where most of its features can be found so let's take a look at what it takes to create an invoice in freshbooks so as you can see FreshBooks kind of has this Wheatley style to it where you can actually see what the invoice will look like a live preview as you add information to it and all the

basics are here honestly customer information data issue due dates customized invoice numbers your logo and brand all the basics of invoicing is there but also you get additional features on the side simple things like accepting credit cards is really easy to do just with a simple click and then you can choose which payment processor you want we'll talk a little bit about that more later on other things like customizing the invoice style you can

customize it to your own brand colors and different fonts as well well my favorite feature is being make recurring where basically if you have a customer where you're sending out invoices and exactly the same every single month you can set it up to automatically send and then automatically bill the customer and that's really useful if you're selling products like subscriptions where is the same invoice insane price every single month and we'll talk about that

a little bit more later as well other things like sending late payment reminders in customers intervals charging late fees and of course multiple dozens of different currencies you can choose from to charge your customers and so everything you need to invoice your customers properly can be found here and then you can once the invoice is done you can send via email or even a traditional mail so everything you need to invoice do we found
