QuickBooks Online is good for our needs. We are also working on a Stripe integration for subscription payments management.

QuickBooks - Best Billing & Invoicing Tools for Startups

QuickBooks is the one of the leading accounting platforms for small businesses, allowing you to easily track expenses, taxes, invoices and all other accounting needs. There are two separate versions of QuickBooks, desktop and online, both of which provide the same basic services: creating invoices, tracking expenses, managing accounts payable, one-click sales and tax reports. QuickBooks also includes a variety of add-ons that can handle inventory, financing and payroll. There are a few notable differences between the online and desktop apps, most of which make the online version the favorite among the Stacklist community. With QuickBooks Online, you can automatically schedule and send invoices; work from any desktop or mobile device and integrate with many other cloud-based apps. However, if you’re looking for multicurrency capabilities, you’ll have to go with the desktop version. It’s important to note, too, that the online version comes with a monthly subscription that quickly adds up to more than the flat rate of the desktop app.

How startups use QuickBooks?

While the tool’s features can be complex, it’s extremely effective when used by someone who has a basic working knowledge of accounting principles and is familiar with its interface. QuickBooks can also get pricey, which is why it’s often a more popular choice among Series A and B startups (about 3/4ths of Series A and B companies have used the platform) than their Seed-stage counterparts (just under 50%).

How much does QuickBooks cost?

The desktop application can be purchased for a flat fee of $299.95, while online subscriptions go for $12.95, $26.95 or $39.95 per month, depending on the complexity of the package.
