Default How do you keep track of business expenses, sales, ect.?

How do you keep track of your sales, money spent for business, etc? This is my weakness. I write everything down and keep receipts in a folder but there has got to be a easier way.

gnucash is an accounting software that you can get free. I've not used it so I can't say how versatile it is.

I personally use Open Office spreadsheets. The reason is that I can format them to suit myself. And over the years I've made a lot of adjustments to that formatting.

I found a spreadsheet online for free and tweaked it to fit my needs. If you google "business income and expense spreadsheet", you're likely to find one that works for you. The one I use keeps track of all my expenses and income every month, plus how much I need to stash away for quarterly taxes.

I recently signed up for Dubsado CRM and I LOVE the ease of it and the owners are really great answering questions!

Default Tracking Expenses

I use a program called TaxBot and love it. It has an app for the phone and I can track expenses and mileage on the go. Just snap a shot of my receipts on the phone and they are saved. $10 a month. Quite the deal if you ask me!

If you think purchasing an app to track business expenses, sales and more is not ideal this time, then you can find so many templates online that is easy to use to manage your business well.

I operate a bookkeeping business so I use QuickBooks Online. QuickBooks Self-Employed is a product that you can use to track your expenses, mileage and even gives you an estimate on how much taxes you should be paying quarterly. I highly recommend it.

I download Excel versions of my credit card statements and charge the transactions to the correct expense accounts.

I am back to doing things the old fashioned way. I am now using a paper planner to track expenses, goals, to dos and contacts. I love these new planners. Check it out in my signature link.
