I’ve been a FreshBooks user for 7 or 8 years now. It feels like I’ve been there since their early days. I’ve seen it through a lot of iterations. I value the simplicity and the reports they give us.

It integrates with our services well and makes our accounting easy to manage. FreshBooks is good for generating invoices for our users. These invoices can be modified, searched through, and printed through their system.

FreshBooks - Best Billing & Invoicing Tools for Startups

FreshBooks is a cloud-based accounting tool that promotes itself specifically to service-oriented small businesses, such as consultants and freelancers. It has stock accounting features like time and expense tracking, but its strong suit is invoicing, allowing you to instantly create invoices by recording all relevant data, as well as tracking said invoices as they’re viewed and paid. With its laser focus on invoicing, FreshBooks lacks some key accounting features that companies with more than a few employees would miss--for instance, its reporting is subpar and it has some difficulty exporting data--but it’s a great choice for small startups that are managing a team of contract employees.

How startups use FreshBooks?

Users of Freshbooks from the Stacklist community tend to be diverse in terms of funding, stage and business model. FreshBooks is used as the primary accounting tool for the smaller startups in the Stacklist community, though larger companies do occasionally use it as an easy invoicing tool to supplement their main accounting software. Stacklist users who have chosen FreshBooks generally tend to have more service- and consulting-based models.

How much does FreshBooks cost?

FreshBooks starts with a free account for 30 days, but then requires a paid subscription. There are four packages, $9.95/month, $19.95/month, $29.95/month and $39.95/month. Each upgrade allows for a more clients, grants additional staff members access to the account, and adds team features like team timesheets and team expense reports.
