Through the years I have tried many different programs for invoicing, keeping track of expenses and time and creating reports for my CPA at tax time. I was Searching for the best cloud invoicing system for small businesses.

Some programs did not provide all that I needed. Programs that provided all that I needed also had so much more than I needed and were so complex to use that every time I opened up the program I felt like I wanted to bang my head on my desk!

Then I discovered FreshBooks.

FreshBooks is a comprehensive cloud accounting and invoicing system that does everything I need it to without over complicating the process. Because it is in the cloud I do not have to pay for backup or worry about losing my data. My invoices are customized with my logo and company colors giving my invoices a professional appearance. Invoices can be sent by email or U.S. mail. Online payment is also an option you can offer your clients.


After the client clicks on the link in the email he is taken to a page where he has several options including to download the invoice as a PDF
